    every time you guys do one of your horrible quote trees, I get the urge to kill again. And then someone dies.

    I ended up with 3 beta codes. One I used, one I gave to pretty much my bro in rl and one went to Tarranon. Because he asked first and I was talking to him on Steam. Plus his is my SupCom 2 partner most of the time so figured he deserved.

    I wrote my beta codes on a piece of paper and flushed them down the toilet

    mostly symbolic, but I have no way of retrieving the codes anymore either so

    Also he is doing that thing where instead of actually addressing other people's points he demands to know what qualifications they have and where they obtained them, which suggests he has some insecurities about the strength of his arguments.

    So I went to a talk on the pratice of medicine, by someone extremley respected in the field. It was scary as hell. Example which sticks out is one of her PHD students did a study on those who'd recently had a stroke which had paralyzed their ability to swallow.

    Of the 30 selected for the study (they were all 50 plus mind), one survived. The one who surivived discharged himself two days in. The rest were quite literally just left on drips to starve to death because they'd have 'no quality of life'. Of course this wasn't made explicitly clear to the patients families. One quote was by a junior consultant who was shaken up by this to one of the senior consultants, pretty much saying 'it's been four weeks and she's still hanging around, what do I do?' the response was 'stay the course, it won't be long now'. She lived for three more weeks. Oh, and all these patients were conscious for the duration.

    pretty sure that i've experienced that

    no

    Has anyone here installed EasyTutu?

    Am I supposed to install both the Tales of the Sword Coast AND DirectX8 patch, or just the latest TotSC patch (and no DX8 patch)?

    I don't think it matters too much. The DX8 patch is for multiplayer. But I cannot seem to find an answer.

    If you're under 40 they're far more likely to help, by the time you hit 50 treatment begins to go down by orders of magnitudes for every ten (and then five) years.

    when i was laying around in the stroke ward recovering

    the nurses were all aflutter and waiting on me hand and foot and coming in just to talk to me

    but before i let that inflate my ego i had to consider i was like, half the age of the youngest guy in the ward

    they probably don't see a lot of that

    How can that be legal? Even leaving aside all the other horrifying things about it, starvation is an extremely painful way to die. I don't understand how a doctor could be allowed to starve their patient to death.

    I figure there isn't a whole lot they can do to prevent it. They could put them on a nutrient drip but eventually it won't matter, they will probably just wither away. No matter what it is horrible being stuck in your body and unable to do anything yet still thinking. Horrible horrible way to go. I think it rates up there with being eaten alive.

    Even with euthanasia laws, they can still drug them up to brain-damaging levels rather than leave them to rot.

    I consider long-term locked-in syndrome to be worse than being eaten alive or really almost any other sort of torture.

    It's possibly the worst thing a person can experience.

    I only experienced it for maybe about 15 minutes and that experience was harrowing and traumatic.

    Our legislation regarding voluntary euthanasia is being shaken right now by the case of a 30 something year old who can't do anything except communicate through eye movements (or something similar). She's been in that state for well over a decade and wrote a letter to authorities asking them to cut the machine off and let her die in peace.

    Problem is people can come out of it after an extended period and you don't know if they will or if they will just drop dead. It isn't like someone turns into a vegetable they just are basically stuck in a body that is completely paralyzed.

    Uh, they can either put a tube down the nose to feed them (incredibly uncomfortable, but standard practice as it's much easier to remove, and requires less official oversight), or a 'peg', in the side which is far more effective, but surgical. These patients only had a parlyzed throat, not body.

    I couldn't tell you the exact reason they can do it RBB. Medical practice law isn't exactly my field, but I believe it's to do with it not being direct intervention, and the fact that whilst patients can order these if they want to, they're systematically discouraged from doing so.
