re: Marty Mcfly Yourself? - pngtiger
Listen to your friend that wants to start an internet based shopping site. Don’t tell him it won’t work because we have no actual products we are selling. This was 1997 and I was getting into programming. Could have eventually competed or sold out to amazon...

re: Do you do elf on a shelf? When did this really start?l - pngtiger
I don’t plan on doing the elf thing. But a girl I work with (who has refused to do it too) had her daughter come home one day asking why Santa didn’t like he, and if she wouldn’t get gifts this year.. All her friends have the elf on a shelf thing. So the mom finally gave into it. I don’t know ho...

re: What is the proper way for a man to shake a woman’s hand? - pngtiger
I read how she offers and act in kind. If she only offers fingers, then she'll get the dainty shake (my palm turned slightly up or down depending on situation). If she offers the whole hand, I'll be firm (but less than a male handshake)...

re: Salt Lake City nurse gets 500K settlement - pngtiger
They didn't mention much in the article. Originally she said she wouldn't seek any legal action if the police department investigated the situation and reprimanded the officerS involved. I guess they didn't do that, or she changed her mind. Now, it's not just the arresting officer that needs repr...

re: LSU prez: We're burning through reserves for medical school - pngtiger
Louisiana actually has 3 medical schools: LSU NO and Shreveport, and Tulane. There still isn't enough doctors to go around, especially in the smaller communities, and especially in north and central La. I get emails all the time about positions there. LSUHSC Shreveport is a separate entity from L...

[quote]For $1000 a dog can have bladder stones removed, using the same anesthesia, same surgical instruments, performed by a doctor with the same amount of schooling, as a human getting the same procedure that would cost $100,000.

re: Weight loss surgery? - pngtiger
Don't do the band, or the new mangnetic rings. It's a foreign body that can erode, and if it does, it's a major problem. Also, it's easy to "beat it" by drinking your calories, which many do. It takes adjustments regularly (first to get it just right, almost to obstruction, then more and more as/if ...
