And lo, the angel Feldstein spoke unto me, and he rendered a bill charging an ICD code which my insurance company mis-keyed as a hysterectomy; whereupon the voice of Yahweh saith: "Dr. Nguyen, please call admitting, Dr. Nguyen, admitting". And the voice was terminated with two clicks, ramen.

sxacho: Klivian: Angels in the Occipital Lobe?

Something something Pinheads and Patriots


You're trying to trick me, but I know the truth.  The Angels are in Anaheim, the Patriots are in Boston, and the Pinheads are in Congress.

So he got more religious as his brain began to shut down.

Makes sense.

Angels? Yeah, the word he's looking for is DOCTORS. The doctors who saved your life should be getting the credit, not some hallucinations your swollen brain coughed up and you idiotically are ascribing supernatural origins to while simultaneously admitting you know it was a dream.

If you'd actually read the part of the article you quoted, you'd have noticed the angels were offering him a chance to die; they weren't there to save him.


Did you ever notice how in the Bible, when ever God needed to punish someone, or make an example, or whenever God needed a killing, he sent an angel? Did you ever wonder what a creature like that must be like? A whole existence spent praising your God, but always with one wing dipped in blood. Would you ever really want to see an angel?

I'm an angel. I kill firstborns while their mamas watch. I turn cities into salt. I even, when I feel like it, rip the souls from little girls, and from now till kingdom come, the only thing you can count on in your existence is never understanding why.

I was in the stroke ward for three weeks in April. Left disappointed. Not one damned stroke the whole time.

natas6.0: so awesome he receives federal healthcare no other federal worker gets.
We should take what they say is best for us and be happy for it.

I look forward to watching him limp around


That will make it easier for V'Ger to catch the Kirk unit.

He said the ordeal made him more religious.

"I felt like there were three angels in the room. And, interestingly, they had New York accents, probably because the last movie I'd seen was on Channel 11, was the original 'Ocean's 11,'" he said.

U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk speaks about his recovery from a major stroke a year ago at his home in Highland Park, Ill.
Kirk told the Chicago Daily Herald the angels asked him: "You want to come with us?"

He replied: "No, I'll hold off."

"They say there are no atheists in foxholes, and this stroke put me into a very deep foxhole," he told the newspaper.
