Glendale: WeenerGord: Supposedly it is much easier for a woman to give birth on hands and knees.

Lying on her back strapped onto a table with her legs up in the air was invented for the ease of the doctors. It's not good for her.

Soooo basically this:

That position is good for making babies, too. It's all-purpose.

tricycleracer: Marcintosh: Doctors don't really have a handle on pain at all.
Hell, look at how many addicts doctors make each and every year.
As much as I distain the medical professions I really don't think making addicts from patients is intentional.

The medical stance is that you should treat the pain and then, later, treat the addiction.  You don't keep someone in pain to avoid a future treatable condition.


not so great on treating the addiction then are they.

karlandtanya: ChipNASA: *MAN* speaking here.

Kidney stones are more painful than giving birth. (I've had them three times.)

I got shot up with morphine three times just to get me out of the fetal position for x-rays.

Women are pussies. *Really*.

I blew my face off with a rocket engine when I was around 13.  2nd degree burns are...uncomfortable.  I remember lying in the gurney, screaming my head off thinking "this is just sensory input; there is no new information here and screaming won't make it any less unpleasant.  And my mother is already freaking out; this is NOT helping.".  But I still couldn't stop screaming.  When I woke up in the burn unit, they told me they'd given me morphine.  I didn't think anything of it--felt pretty normal, all things considered.

Then I tried to stand.


That's what you were thinking at age 13? Pretty sophisticated.
