Rather similar to a number of our posters who think they have a sense of humour
Nice cover for tonight's programme
Not sure about the sepia tone for 1984.
Suggests that was sometime in the Victorian Age, if not at the beginning of time itself.
I may not be alone on the forum in thinking that 1984 is really quite recent.
He who controls the present, controls the past.
This place has been unnervingly positive and harmonious in the last two weeks. Get spanked tonight and we can get back to normal.
Still, 1-1. The wheels can come off at Huddersfield instead.
I'm not going tonight due to illness. This almost certainly guarantees a thrilling 4-3 win for us.
and as a result more people are posting.
Yes but on the positive side, we may have been 3-2 down with 15 mins to go and you'd have probably have left at that point anyway.
Are you out of paracetemol ?
I think his parrots ate 'em all
Someone was going to...I fell on the sword for you lot.
Why is there no Aspirin in the jungle?
Because, sadly, remote tropical areas have poor medical cover and struggle with even basic medical supplies at times
I wasn't born yet. If that helps
We're closer to 2050 than we are to 1984!!!
Haha. How thick must the guy who wrote that be?
We owe them for the undeserved 2-0 reverse fixture earlier this year. They’re def there for the taking right now and with only 2 games left to kind of use as a dress rehearsal for the 18th (I say that tongue in cheek, as the gooners are bang average) we should go for this. Morale is high and the other results going our way this will be worth 6 points for the run in. I’m optimistic as ever and believe we may nick this 2-1. Doucoure and Gray don’t know any of the other teams players so sema og

'Us' non-clinicians (especially those of us from the physical sciences) involved in biomedical research have the, possibly extremely unfair, opinion that an awful lot of the medics we deal with, ahem, 'aren't the sharpest scalpels in the dissecting kit'. My favourite example springs to mind after reading the above:
We were involved in some (ADMET) studies and for a mixture of cost/ease of modelling we used a 'simple' drug. This lead to 'us' continually telling the variations of the old 'joke' at every single opportunity of Why does Tarzan always have a headache in the jungle? I remember someone telling it to a newish jnr medic who didn't get it because he "...hadn't been taught to call it that". Fast forward about a week and I overhear him telling another colleague 'that joke' only to then watch him look bemused at the other person's response when he used the punchline "Because acetaminophen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!".
Quite brilliant and meta. Possibly a little unfair, we are only human, and we represent a variety of personalities, backgrounds and intellects. I have nothing but respect for those involved in research, little reward financially usually for an intellectually demanding field.
I suspect the person you mention is very familiar with a scalpel rather than medicine itself nowadays.
I remember on one ward round a junior asking me if they should represcribe “Frolic acid” for one frail old lady on the ward. I said go ahead and let the particularly sarcastic pharmacist take him aside for a word later on. How he’d survived 6 years of medical school with that misconception is still a mystery to me.
(It’s folic acid. I like the idea of a drug that makes old people frolic so admired his optimism)
I've got an 'old-school' habit of building a physical model of any 'simple' chemical I work with with my quite old, expensive and extremely good molecular model kit (incidentally bought for my by an ex-lover,who was a medic who got fed up watching me work on conformational problems with a lump of bluetak and some matches: a swan vesta, a bluebell, a spent one and one with the end bitten off) so I get the "feel" of whatever we're working on. One afternoon I get asked an odd question by some academic high-flyer: "How big's a cyclohexane molecule?" The chemical formula is C6H12 and it's usually written down in short-form as a hexagon. I 'build' it with my kit and was just starting to explain that the question's pretty meaningless as the molecule appears in two conformations (shapes called "boat" and "chair"). I'm told that I'm doing it wrong as I must be an idiot as "...it's always shown as a hexagon!". I start to tell him that the 'hexagon' is just written shorthand for a complex 3d shape. But I'm told "...it's just a hexagon, look you idiot..." which isn't what I've built. I point out the expensive price tag on my molecular modelling set (just shy of £70) inform him that if any of the pieces got lost or broken he'll be replacing the entire kit and leave him with the bits to get on with it. He was still 'at it' 3 hours later. N.B. this one was "oxbridge" 'trained'.
Massive shame Deulofeu isn't available, think he would have given Mustafi a torrid time.
Why isn't Deulofeu or Bobby P playing? Anyone know why? Injured?
From WO Site:
Cup semi-final hero Gerard Deulofeu, who has been struggling with injury since the semi-final, is not in the Watford squad
Just got here and seen the line up. Going straight home.
Have we just sacked off the league completely?
Just when our hopes of a historic season are high we are back to having a better side in the treatment room than on the pitch
Pereyra booked annual leave from wot I've heard
Not being able to see a screen from the rookery is really starting to piss me off
Just tuned in to Sky Sports hoping to hear a couple of overpaid ex-pro's to fawn over Man City and Liverpool. Suffice to say, I haven't been disappointed!!!!! #bestleagueintheworldever
Life in 1984 was grim. I read about it in a book by George Orwell.
We'll be going direct tonight with that line-up!
Yeah, I went directly home
I love my molecular building kit. Have made a model of lorazepam and have it on display on the kitchen wall.
Thank **** I'm ill.
The 9 outfield players left on are doing us all proud! How **** are Arsenal! Only tweak to make is don’t let Masina or Feminia take corners and I believe we can still do this! Might need the officials to forget who the top 6 team is, IE who pays their ‘wages’, but hey you never know!
Drunk and proud tonight. Deserved so much more but what a gutsy performance against 12 men!
