I first read duck not drunk and thought we had an epic story on our hands. Man, just once I want to see a bird steal a large automobile...

doglover: Ouch. How do you deal with a kidney stone IN BED?

Hang in there, brother. I hope you don't need surgery.


You get farked by it hard. :)

I've passed two so far. Need to cut back on the diet pepsi.

BronyMedic: BronyMedic has been dealing with a kidney stone for the last 12 hours, and is heavily medicated at the moment (WEEEEEEE! Better living through pharmacology). This is the first time I've been out of bed today.

Shadow Blasko: paging BronyMedic


BronyMedic has been dealing with a kidney stone for the last 12 hours, and is heavily medicated at the moment (WEEEEEEE! Better living through pharmacology). This is the first time I've been out of bed today.

That said, many areas will leave the rig running because of the risk of not getting it to restart, or because they need to keep the back heat or airconditioning running on a bad weather day. They'll almost never shut it off in an ER bay. (We're actually prohibited from turning our trucks off unless we have it plugged into a shore line because we have bookoos of IV pumps and the Cardiac Monitor and Ventilator plugged in, but we have remote locks on ours.)

Rural/Metro got tired of all of their ambulances being stolen while on calls because they were left running, and installed keyless run systems in them a few years ago. You flip the toggle and it bypasses the ignition, allowing you to remove the keys. Anyone touches the brake or the gas, and it kills the engine.

Shadowknight: This is, unfortunately, a risk that happens. It's also why the good class II narcotics are usually locked in a tough to crack box in it's own locked cabinet. Sure, they can still get to them, but it's going to take them a bit.


Tennessee makes you keep them behind three locks, so you have them in a locked compartment or fridge, in a locked box or bag, with a seal or seals on the box so that if it's opened, everyone knows it.

Shadowknight: Are you talking between calls, or while on scene during the call? If you're talking between calls, then the medics you are running with are kind of stupid. The newer style turbo diesel vehicles really only require a moment or two to fire up, and just sitting there wasting fuel is just bad economics. I'll make some allowances for if you are positioned out in the middle of nowhere and need to keep warm, but if you work in a moderate sized city where you could just as easily park at a Denny's and go in for an up of coffee between calls, do that.


If you have a lot of AC dependent equipment or an isolette, the inverter will drain the battery in a matter of minutes. It's why we keep our freightliners running, but remote-lock the box.

Sorry guys. It's in my driveway and I left the keys in it for ya. I thought my brother was driving it to his place but I can tell by the vomit trail that he drove my neighbor's car. Theoretically he drove it to his place but I'm not staking my reputation on it.

I've been REALLY drunk. I've never stolen a cop car, ambulance, or firetruck.

Mind you, I've been drunk enough to do so without considering the legal end. But there's something deeper than that. It's just not done. It's like punching old ladies. I don't care how drunk you get me, I'm not punchin' old ladies. I'm not stealin' emergency vehicles. I'm not shooting myself in the face with a fire extinguisher and then running around yelling "I'm a ghost!"

There's just things you don't do.
