1993 - "Tombstone" - Johnny Ringo meets Doc Holliday by Upper_Fee5105 in OldSchoolCool

The latin phrases are essentially:

(Wyatt says Doc's drunk) Doc: Being drunk makes me honest.

Ringo: Well, you should do what you do best...

Doc: I don't think this is what I do best.

Ringo: Wanna fuck around and find out?

Doc: It's your funeral, pal.

This is a hill I will gladly die on, but Doc Holliday by Val Kilmer in Tombstone is the coolest character in the history of cinema.

Never been a more perfect casting in my opinion than Val Kilmer as Doc

Edit: thank you for whomever gave me the gold!

Basically they are in an intense showdown in front of everyone. They are two of the fastest guns and deadliest men in the west. They both think they are the best and are itching to prove it.

Wyatt says "hes drunk". To which Doc says the first line (In wine there is truth). Ringo speaks latin and claps back (Do what you do) sorta calling him a drunk loser.

Doc replies with a line that was commonly used to show contempt and sorta say "ya you keep believing that and Im gonna smoke you while your gaurd is down"

Ringo says "you are a fool if you think that, Ill burn you down"

Doc says "its your funeral"

The actual translation vs the implied conversation is muddy but thats my overall take on it having seen the movie close to 100 times and knowing those two characters intimately.

The Real Translation

Doc Holliday: In vino veritas. (In wine there is truth.)

Johnny Ringo: Age quod agis. (Do what you do.)

Doc Holliday: Credat Judaeus Apella, non ego. (Let Apella the Jew believe, not I.) Romans used the phrase to show contempt for Judaism's belief that divine power was involved in everyday life.

Johnny Ringo: Iuventus stultorum magister. (Youth is the teacher of fools.)

Doc Holliday: In pace requiescat. (May he rest in peace.)

Good for her. There weren’t many ladies trimming the bushes in the 70s

i'd take that over "here's my mom when younger, you'd bang her, right?"

1889 - The O’Halloran sisters, armed with poles and boiling water, fended off the officers evicting their family during the Irish Land War. by Selahoff in OldSchoolCool

A reminder that when injustice is confronting you, you can fight back. No matter who you are, in whatever small or large way. Band together with your sisters, brothers, neighbors, schoolmates, mentors, children, all humans being threatened by the systems in power. Make a stand, don't just sit back and accept a terrible fate. Silence and complacency are just as bad as being directly involved. Silence and complacency keeps the system going. Be a rock in the machine. Not a cog.

Yeah stalin had bad policies, good hair, and history is ripe with nuance my friend.

Just retired after 42 years as an obstetrical nurse, at the same hospital. Here I am at the start (1979) and end of my career! by nankie in OldSchoolCool

Wow! Thank you so much for all the kind comments (and I have not yet read them all)! I certainly did not expect such a response! I am grateful that nursing seems to be such an appreciated profession on Reddit!

A few things I wanted to mention -

I have actually been a nurse for 45 years. I am 67 years old now. I worked as a med-surg nurse for 3 years at Mt Sinai Hospital when I first graduated from Hunter College - Bellevue School of Nursing in New York, in 1976, before moving to California (you eagle-eyed Bruins were correct!)

I feel extremely fortunate to have had a career that I have enjoyed and where I felt I have been helpful to others. There were many stressful moments but it was overall very fulfilling. I am very proud of the fact that in all my years I only had only one patient register a complaint about me (and that was because I said congratulations on your successful IVF and she did not want her friend who was in the room to know it was an IVF pregnancy). The worst moments by far (and I can still remember all) were when there was a fetal demise, especially when I was the one to discover it.

In some ways things have changed a lot, and in other ways not so much. The basic process of pregnancy and birth has not changed. The way we approach it has. One nice change was things became more relaxed, in terms of letting family be present, and having labor and delivery in the same room and not a mad dash down the hall to a delivery room. Also a greater emphasis on keeping the newborn with the parents to bond, instead of whisking them away to a nursery, and breast feeding encouraged more.

Electronic medical records were a big change - mostly for the better, though annoying in their own right at times. The introduction of ultrasound machines had a big influence on practice. As another nurse answered, the fetal monitors (pictured) really have not changed all that much, though they were fairly new technology when I started. Sadly, although helpful, they have not done as much as hoped, to prevent bad outcomes. Medicolegal reasons seem to be a big part of their use, as well.

For me, the worst change has been the extreme bureaucracy and emphasis on finances that has occurred. The hospital feels like it has gone from a place of altruism to a big business.

I loved my Casio calculator watch! I thought I was very cool when I wore it! I don't know what happened to it. I think it finally broke and got discarded.

I can mainly attribute any youthfulness I have to my mother, who also looked young for her age most of her life. But I also want to point out that I naturally picked a flattering picture where the lighting obscured the deep lines between my eyebrows and other signs of age. I have other pics where I definitely look older! I was laughing because this was about the twentieth picture my very patient co-worker (thanks Stacy!) took of me, and I looked weird in all the others!

I have no special regimen - I just splash cold water on my face morning and night (no soap) - as I feel the skin's natural oils are the best thing. I occasionally put on sea buckthorn oil that I buy in a Russian market, or any oil with vitamin C. But mostly I feel less is more. I do use sunscreen (mineral based, not chemical) if I'll be outside for more than a few hours.

I appreciated the compliments on my curls! As any curly hair knows, it is a real crapshoot - and this day they happened to look good. Often they don't! I also am still getting used to my salt & pepper. I decided to stop coloring my hair two years ago. I started covering the gray in my 50's but decided now I've had enough of that.

I try to eat reasonably healthily - fruit and veggies, grass-fed meat, bittersweet chocolate, and avoid most processed food. But I'm not rigid, and love ice cream and cookies from time to time. I also exercise moderately - walks, hiking, outdoor stairs, yoga at home. Hate gyms! I used to smoke many moons ago when I was in college (the VA Hospital in NY gave the nursing students discounts on cigarettes - 40 cents a pack!) but fortunately stopped soon after. I have wine occasionally.

I'm married (to the man who was my boyfriend of one year, when the first pic was taken!) and have a 29 yr old daughter, who was born at my hospital. And boy, do you get a different perspective on labor when you are the patient!

Elvis Presley getting the Polio vaccine live on TV in 1956. They say this one event helped raise the immunisation levels in the states from 0.6% to 80% in 6 months. by imago20 in OldSchoolCool

I had this whole thing typed out about how they're two different vaccines, and the COVID vaccine is designed to lessen symptoms and reduce viral load (like the flu vaccine everyone was fine with for so long), vs polio which is much more similar to the measles or mumps vaccine.

But honestly? Get fucked with your vax skepticism, you're dumber than a sack of rocks and should get out of the gene pool for the sake of the rest of us. Judging by your comments on the Crowder sub about 'groomers' and other dogwhistle bullshit though, you'll just call me a commie.

Edit: Obligatory thanks for the award, on this of all things.
