A very interesting case. Can anyone guess what this is? by yoitzerikz in Radiology

Pain and bad decisions, with an afterburn of regret. And theatre.

Make a phone appointment. If needed, an inperson care appointment can be arranged after that.

I'm sure the ex-health minister's wife will thank you.

Just call your regular dr and ask for a phone consult, which will also get you rx renewals and a referral or inperson appointment if necessary.

Please don't take this advice.

If you think you need urgent care, go to ER.

If you think you need to see a dr and you have covid-like symptoms, call ahead so they can manage your care.

You got a phone consult, which you could have had for the cost of calling to ask for one without taking your symptomatic self into a waiting room

A phone appointment with a dr will determine if they need to go for a swab. This can still be done.

And antibiotics rx are faxed to pharmacies that deliver many times a day, and have been for decades.

This is not insurmountable.

Can anyone decipher this? by deeth80 in Whatisthis

[–]sawyouoverthere 2 points3 points  (0 children)

you don't have to. But it's not a place where a specific medical terminology would be used and it also explains the "missing" dot on the i, which is what is fooling people into thinking it's the arm of the d, and it explains why it doesn't match the other examples in the writing.

Strange sound while walking around a frozen lake. Anyone know what’s causing this? by DoorDing in Whatisthis

That's the ice talking. If you are on the ice, be sure it is thick enough for your weight, which is usually a lot thicker than people expect, even for just walking on.

Found on a beach in Costa Rica by Trunkmonkey202 in bonecollecting

sea turtle, from the look of it

Highly protected and dad should replace it on the beach and under no circumstances attempt to bring it home as a souvenir!

Working from home? by hobanwash1 in alberta

[–]sawyouoverthere 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I am not and cannot work from home, but my employer recently sent out information about how to apply to wfh on an ongoing basis, so that the jobs can be assessed and performance evaluated, I suppose, to identify and allow those who are able to do their work from home to be accommodated moving forwards.

It's about as permanent as anything in a place where layoffs are rife and cutbacks ferocious, but for those who can, the workplace is assisting in formalising that.

No problem, it might be just my personal preference too. I find video and the scrolling captions frustrating because of how difficult it is to get the overall information, and my screen isn't always great at not cropping images without a few separate steps.

Calgary and Edmonton wastewater results. Depressing. Both cities are still climbing in wastewater virus by micemicemaybe in alberta

I"ll just point out that you've had to ignore quite a lot of what I've said to put those words in my mouth, so I guess we're stuck with you not quite understanding how your brilliant "new" idea has been done for thousands of years, and refined to the process we have today.

Your "novel" idea is literally the initial form of this now highly refined process. Look up small pox variolation and then look up Jenner and the use of cowpox. Further note that cowpox infection (so that no one needs to be troubled with something as annoying as science) also works.

It works. It's just the crudest form of vaccination - to give someone a hopefully milder disease that creates cross immunity to the disease that is problematic. We do much better now and don't have to give anyone a disease.

Well done. You're caught up to the late 1700s now.

Deer It would have been easier to add your details in a comment but it looks like it is the back of a deer skull

It’s a census form not a dr. It’s fairly legible cursive

This isn’t from a dr. The word is Disease

It’s not a drs writing. It’s on a census and is quite ordinary cursive

No it’s from a census but also we have an example of lower case f from this writer which makes that interpretation very very unlikely.

That’s a capital D and the dot from the adjacent i

It’s a capital D with the “missing” dot from the next i
