I'd buy that for a mule!

That's still going to be a somewhat challenging game of keep-away, considering how few open fields there are.

Francis said surgery on his knee was not an option, adding that he was still feeling the effects of six hours spent under anaesthetic last summer, when he underwent an operation on his colon.
"You don't play, you don't mess around, with anaesthesia," he said.


LOL! Buddy liked the drugs and doesn't know what to make of that.
 
2022-08-01 3:04:17 AM  
Hopefully Francis can keep healthy. He is a person who walks it like he talks it. The Papal Guard still gets frustrated by him sneaking out at night to minister to people without them being nearby.

No, he's just very aware of the numbers of people throughout the world that are addicted to pain killers due to surgery.
 
2022-08-01 3:17:50 AM  
That's too bad. He seems like not such a bad guy considering he's the head of the biggest pedophile-enabling cult in the world.
 
2022-08-01 3:23:44 AM  
So what happens if they re-elect the other retired guy?  Does he get two pope votes plus the head pope tie breaker or just one pope vote and the top dog tire breaker?
 
2022-08-01 3:25:14 AM  
He should send out doppelgänger helpers like Santa Claus.

He's only got one working lung so anesthesia could be harder for him than many. Giving him an artificial knee joint at his age opens up a huge risk for clots/stroke, or sepsis. I suppose maybe they could do it under a spinal block but even that would be tough for someone his age. There's an operation where donor stem cells can be taken from nasal cartilage and cloned onto a 3-d printed scaffold (derived from MRI) to make a new cushion of cartilage for the knee joint, installed arthroscopically, but when I asked about it, the ortho doc told me it only worked on kids, not grups. Also no insurance will touch it.

Francis is so great and so, so needed in these times. I hope he holds on at least long enough to shape the odds of his replacement being like him, thru his appointment of new, more progressive (I know, it's a relative term) cardinals.

there's a real reason why so many Polish cardinals hate him.

Honestly, if he was ordained as a cardinal tomorrow I think even Francis would step aside for him.

DON.MAC: So what happens if they re-elect the other retired guy?  Does he get two pope votes plus the head pope tie breaker or just one pope vote and the top dog tire breaker?


No, The other guy isn't eligible for he position any more as he is no longer a Cardinal. He's also 95 years old.

Funny hat insurance, as it may damaged while he poops in the woods.

They need to change things up for the next pope. Maybe make it a young woman. I nominate Zendaya for pope. I could really get behind that.

No, mostly desires to have the Church re-adopt rules from the late 1800s or early 1200s.

He probably just needs to lighten up.

I hadn't realized the Cardinals had traded him. Did they get prospects, picks, or another veteran in return?

They got to put McGwire on the IRL with an understanding that they can only use him if Sammy Sosa gets hired on at a later date.
 
2022-08-01 4:27:41 AM  
He could have a knee replacement using only a local anesthetic.

No, not really. lol If there is one kind of operation where you DON'T want to be awake, it's replacement.
 
2022-08-01 4:37:56 AM  
After 27 years of one pope, it sure seems weird to have a new one every 5-10 years.

Setting aside the whole 'why isn't god protecting him' joke, this is seriously true: doesn't the church own more hospitals than most first-world countries?

There are some wounds that can only be healed by Miracle spells, and those are best saved for really bad wounds or when you need to bring a party member back.

First and Second World. But those terms lost their meaning a long time ago. The Church also runs a lot of Hospitals in places that aren't aligned with Capitalism or Communism as well.

Somehow this reminds me of the Buffy episode The Body, where Buffy's mom dies a perfectly normal, mundane death, and there's not a goddamn thing to be done about it.  She's just dead and it's just sad.

Buffy, not the mom. Buffy coming back is an example of a PC that didn't want to come back.

His knee is bad and he can't walk straight forward or side to side any more.  Walking diagonally is no problem, so he may go back to being a bishop.

It will be interesting to see who his replacement will be.

Can the world grind to a halt while the entirety of media sets up sniper positions on the stink pipe at the Vatican waiting for a smoke signal?
Probably not now, with the internet watering down the significance of choosing a new female impersonator to represent all that is unholy. The grandeur of pomp and festivities to select a new representative for the killing natives, raping women and children, and terrorizing you into taking food of of your children's mouths to send in money money money 💰 💰 💰 must continue,
because when the raping is done, you gotta pay off the ones you let live.
Now imma shake a stick with a dead guy nailed to it at you until you turn your pockets.
And gimme your kids.
I need to ... "Save" them.

He's only "great" compared to other popes. He still thinks contraception is evil, and women and gays should have less rights than straight men.
