We Are So Screwed; Surgical Ed.

This article posits that the rise of "superbugs", which are microbes that are antibiotic-resistant, will push a lot of surgical procedures out of common use.

What could slow things down would be regulations on the overuse of antibiotics and increased resources to R&D into new antibiotics.

Neither of which will happen these days.

Regular readers of this blog know who I'd blame for that.

Which brings to mind this joke.

On another note, Trump might have tweeted himself into a criminal charge. Or impeachment. Or not. So now, when did Trump know that Flynn was lying to the FBI? No doubt, the chorus of Trumpanzees will trip over their over-long ties, rushing to explain why obstructing justice is less of a heinous crime than is lying in a deposition on a civil matter.

The good news on the antibiotic front is dirt. Seriously, dirt!

They are starting to isolate antibiotics from regular dirt, so we might just get away with it a while longer.

Trump's stream-of-consciousness blather on Twitter is too sloppy to get him in legal trouble for this. C'mon.

Also, is your google bot-preventer set on Really Hard? Street signs randomly include the pole or not, cars of one pixel screw me up, but storefronts only need three of four to count, and one solution brings on "next" pages. Other sites using this are much easier.

3383, I just randomly pick squares to the left of the stuff...or on B.s site, to the right..seems to work. ;)

3383, Comrade Misfit and CenterPuke,

I have no idea what any of you are talking about. That's okay. I'll just ramble through life as a technological illiterate.

Yours very crankily,

Thank you for the reply.
I guess the captcha here only hates me.

3383, drop me a line. Email addy is at the bottom right of the page.

Don’t worry, 3383, it hates me too...but I’m persistent.
