  1. 3G in Restaurants?

      You just don't have a clue about what you keep carping on about.
  2. 3G in Restaurants?

      You mean the thousands of shareholders?  You think every one of them is in it "for the money"? Your entire mindset is made up of tired clichés.  You're too lazy to have an educated thought.  You are a simple person in a complex world.
  3. Abusive WG neighbour

    Is this guy only attacking you and no one else?  If so, why do you think that is?
  4. 3G in Restaurants?

      So, some of the most highly-educated scientists in the world are doing their jobs "for the money"?  And, that those who work in the pharma industry are heartlessly immune to the suffering of those friends, families and strangers who've lost their lives and do their jobs to make the "big bucks"?  And, for some idiotic reasoning, people in this industry could "gives a single shit about the "health of the nation""?  Either you are omniscient or unhinged.
  5. A gastroscopy without the sedative?

        Yes, in the US. Twilight is a relaxed sedation where the patient is awake and responsive.  I've had that once for a skin biopsy (local anesthetic), but for molar extraction, coloscopies and endoscopy it's been general anesthesia.   I don't miss not remembering or going through any of them awake.
  6. A gastroscopy without the sedative?

    The anesthesiologist was the first person I met.  She had 2-3 pages of very detailed questions about every aspect of my medical life and answered all the questions I had calmly and clearly.  She said the general anesthesia she would administer has changed over the years and there is now less chance of grogginess or nausea.  She said, "you won't feel a thing and we give you an exact amount of drug for you and your procedure".  You cannot drive or operate any machinery for the remainder of the day.  You cannot use a taxi or uber (there have been instances of being "taken advantage of" in the past).  They want you home safely with someone you know.  There are also liability issues. Don't try to "save money" or "man up" or "do what you're told".  Some of the stories here are hair-raising.
  7.   and an opening at the other end where the animal enter.  closing off your end doesn't solve your problem.
  8. Town pigeon numbers hit hard by renovation

    People bear-proof their trash in Alaska.  You just have to be smarter than the average bear.
  9. What I like to do is ride my bike to the office in the summer, arrive all sweaty and smell for the rest of the day.
  10. A gastroscopy without the sedative?

    Pertinent, I just had an endoscopic exam last week (in the US).  Went from the curtained dressing room into the exam room on a gurney, rolled over onto the exam table on my side.  I blinked and was back on the gurney in the dressing room.  As best as I can tell, I lost ~30 minutes of my life.  Waited for a few minutes for my mandatory return home escort ride to come back and fetch me and went on with my day as usual.  Zero side effects. Your doctor is either a quack or incompetent or both.  Since your primary care physician must have prescribed the procedure, go back to him/her and demand a gastro that gives a general anesthesia.
  11. Tesla Gigafactories, News and Conversation

      It's actually more of a gaggle of sycophants...
  12. 3G in Restaurants?

      Israel is testing the second booster in clinical trials and Chile is offering a second as well.  The denominator keeps changing.
  13. Car Dealer sold the car I bought

    No chips = no inventory.  demand far exceeds supply and thus price gets squeezed.   one of the largest contributors to US inflation is car prices.
  14. Need US SIM card for receiving bank SMS verification

    I have various US financial accounts.  I believe all ask in your profile about whether to receive various alerts and if so, how would you like to receive them.  Since I use skype I check "Phone Call", not "Text".  When a verification is needed (I'm on my laptop), I receive a recorded call with the code number.  For other alerts, I check "Email".  Never had a problem.
  15. Where to buy a PC

      Instead of trying to guess your needs, wouldn't it be better to ask your employer and other employees what configuration best suits their (your) needs?
