jso2897: OK - this is it. I am officially sick and tired of hearing about the bombing, the bombers, the bombees, and farking Boston. There is other stuff happening in the world.


So... Go read those stories and comment in those threads. What are you whining in here for?

Love the comments.

"This is America. You will not beat us with fear and terror."

Uhh, have you stepped back and looked at your country lately? Someone beat you with fear and terror long ago.

Mimic_Octopus: stealthd: oukewldave: "He saw Corcoran's mangled legs, rushed her to first aid tents and prayed strangers would take care of his daughter.

Sydney's femoral artery had been severed, but three passersby stayed with her, put pressure on the wound and tied a tourniquet around it to stop the bleeding, Carter said. The femoral artery is a main artery in the thigh, and Sydney's wound would have been fatal had the strangers not stopped to help her, doctors told Carter."


So dad chose wife over daughter.  That's going to be awkward at home...

I was trying to explain to Mrs. Stealthd why I would pick her first, over the Li'l Stealthd.  She did not understand, but I would do what this guy did.

I love Li'l Stealthd, and wouldn't hesitate to put myself in harm's way for her, but if I had to choose which of the two of them to save... I'm not sure I could survive without Mrs. Stealthd.

with one, you canm make more, with the other you either cant or shouldnt, depending on equipment.

plus, less time and resources have gone into educating and raising the little one so less of a waste of time.


Also, our whole job as parents is to make sure that Li'l Stealthd LEAVES THE HOUSE at some point.  Imma live with Mrs. until we're toast.

Then stop reading about it. Pretty simple. And stop reading discussion boards about it. Pretty simple.

But do announce how you are tired of it and keep reading about it.

It is commendable that injured soldiers came to help talk people through their experiences, but "volunteering to go to a war" and "I just wanted to have a nice day with the kids" are quite different, I should think, psychologically.

Yeah you kinda need to fark off.

This is a pretty damn impressive human being. Look down at your feet and ask yourself if you'd miss them if they were gone.If not, go get them blown off and post your opinion then.

Go fark yourself.

It's very likely he has no experience with triage and went with helping the one with the most obvious injuries.
