darch: Ok, so judging by your bio, you're a father.Anything else? What did you do that allowed you such access to such horrific things? Paramedic? Cop? Firefighter?
God Is My Co-Pirate: A biology lesson in Remigianum school in Borken, North Rhine-Westphalia went awry after the collapse of one child suffering from previously existing circulation problems set off a chain reaction among fellow pupils.Shortly afterwards a second child hyperventilated, then another collapsed with stress. Then on the arrival of an emergency doctor another child suffered a further attack, as a police spokesman confirmed on Thursday.So one kid with a medical condition fainted, then the others panicked themselves into fits.
SevenizGud: I remember a case somewhat like this. A bunch of kids collapsing in class, and pushed off as nothing. Then the next kids came in....Turned out a pump in an adjacent glass-grinding facility drain stopped, and it was a mercuro-acetate vapor...killing six. Ooops, maybe we should have investigated more thoroughly. Nah.
cyberspacedout: Virtuoso80: I saw the sex film in 6th grade. Apparently they didn't explain ejaculation well enough, because I was worried that it was just going to leak out like pee and show on my pant leg while in public. It wasn't until next year that I discovered what actually happens.I remember they didn't explain it in my textbook that year either. Just the other day I was talking with someone who had a kid that age, and was thinking that these days the textbook authors have more incentive to get the right info - it's all available on the internet, but kids might find it there from less reliable sources.
Notabunny: I've held someone's head together after a car accident, I've plugged bullet wounds with my index finger and palm, I've calmly discussed hobbies with people who's bones were protruding from their bodies, I've delivered 2 babies, I calmly asked what was left of a lady who'd been hit by a train what she meant by "Where's my baby?", and then I looked for the baby, I've held a cell phone up for a man who'd been empaled by a boxcar coupling device so he could say goodbye to family before the boxcars were decoupled, I've wrestled people who's injections sites were so infected their limbs were hanging on by threads
