re: Has anyone had a laparoscopic cholecystectomy recently? - TIGERSandFROGS
[quote]I feel like I had these issues for months after surgery. I had the shoulder/arm pain, and I also felt something like a mass in my lower left side that bugged me enough to get a CT scan (already met my out-of-pocket by that point anyway). It didn't go away until probably 6 months post-surgery....

re: Has anyone had a laparoscopic cholecystectomy recently? - TIGERSandFROGS
The pain migrated to your shoulders but the gas actually stays in your abdomen--it's referred pain like someone's arm hurting with a heart attack. Mylicon won't do anything for it but make you feel like you're doing something--your body just has to absorb the CO2 from the gas over a few hours or day...

re: Do Russian history students learn about WWII the other way around? - TIGERSandFROGS
[quote] Well, no one can deny that the Soviets gave more in terms of blood. They lost more soldiers than all other armies combined. What they actually believe is that we intentionally delayed d-day in order to bleed them dry. They very much believe that we had an eye on the balance of power after t...

[quote]I've spoken to a Russian about this. They do give credit to the US but more for our contributions in the form of supplies than what we gave in the lives of men. We were contributing heavily to their cause long before d-day. They half-jokingly referred to Spam as the second front.[/quote] G...

[quote] The US was attacked by Japan, and Germany declared war on the United States. Each got what they deserved. Weren't the Germans bombing civilian targets in Great Britain? Heck they did that while fighting on Franco's side in the Spanish civil war. We reciprocated, and I have no doubt if g...

[quote]The people of Germany facilitated the holocaust by letting Hitler take power. I know things were more complicated than a simple election, but the people of Germany had to pay for the sins of their leaders. They weren't a chosen people, a pure race, but stooges at the hands ofthe Nazis who wer...

Here's another interesting image--Koreans captured by the Allies while fighting for the Nazi's on the Atlantic Wall. These poor bastards were captured by the Japanese when they invaded Korea/Manchuria, put into service in the Japanese Imperial Army as prisoners, then captured by the Russians dur...

[quote]When Stalin learned of Hitler's betrayal and invasion of the USSR he had a mental breakdown and stayed silent for a week. Besides being a terrible person Stalin was a shitty leader. Your country is in danger and you break down and go mute for a week? Grow some balls. [/quote] I forgot abo...

[quote] There wasn't much between Moscow and the Urals to fall back on. And Stalin proclaimed that he intended to stand in Moscow as Hitler did Berlin. The Soviet government by all measures appeared to be hunkering down in the city.[/quote] It's hard to believe they wouldn't move their brass fro...

re: Do Russian history students learn about WWII the other way around? - TIGERSandFROGS
[quote]The Germans could have won the war against the USSR rather easily. All they had to do was appear to the people there as liberators, especially in the Ukraine. Hatred for the Soviets was real and could have been harnessed for the Germans' purposes. Instead, they came as conquerors, enslavers, ...

In this respect, Hitler was a very accurate judge of th...

Japan being little in that is stupid. Also the Russian velociraptors should be carrying American arms, riding in American vehicles, or be in American planes. Italy should be getting its arse kicked by Greece. ...

[quote]Would the US be better off by a unified Europe? I don't think so. We are better off when the other nations are weaker. WW2 was the best thing that ever happened to the US. [/quote] No more free trade within the British Empire and two decades of economic and infrastructure catchup for a...

[quote]No, it is not correct at all. In fact Roosevelt was bending over backwards to give Stalin war goods way before we entered the war. Thousands of ships and planes and tanks and jeeps were given to russia by the US. The only thing that really pissed Stalin off about the US, was that we went to A...

[quote]I am agreeing to a point. I am not saying it is my opinion, just how the Germans viewed the Jews. WW2 was just phase two of WW1. Poverty lead to the rise of Hiter, which allowed his extreme views to blossom. But you can't argue the Jewish population had a hand in what was going on financially...
