I'm glad it helped, and I really appreciate your post nic. I have a lot of humor here, and wondered about adding these kinds of stories, not sure if they belonged here or not. I now know I made the right decision. I have a sort of lay ministry, and wanted to find a way to extend it to here, and the humor, Weird News, and Inspiring Stories seemed the best way possible. I figure everyone needs a lift now and then, and you just gave me that lift I needed. Good luck with your situation.

Wow that first story was really sad, I've experienced something similar to that.

Yeah, I started posting these stories because I think they touch on some common experiences. It sometimes can help to realize we're not as alone as we sometimes think we are.

This is my forst post in N E 1 else's thread - so let me apologise in advance :D Western medicine is a scam. Soviet medicine is better - & Asian. Western Medicine is designed 2 milk ya' 4 all ya' got. I haven't seen a doc in about 10 years - last time 'cuz of an allergy in my eye (I get heyfeever) - they called it 'peleconquia' and sent me on my way LOL!!! Turns out I didn't need N E thing. I never go 2 the dentist - not since they butchered me (took out my wisdom teeth) when I was a young lad - totally unnecessary - just like circumcission.

American medicine is good 4 1 thing only - & that is trauma care, like if U break bones they R good at fixing that - or re-attaching a limb. 4 EVERYTHING else, they are completely useless and will make your health WORSE.

I remember my grandpa gasping 4 his life in some bed - hospital unwilling 2 end it 4 him 'cuz American law is structured 2 milk ya dry in expenses as your life oozes away. Well feel free 2 delete this if U wanna' - I know this isn't my thread :) American medicine is just so BS I felt the desire 2 say somethin'. Eat natural foods. Remember the law has been perverted so the word 'organic' means 'at least 10% actual food'. THe rest could literally be plastic - whipped crude oil - and that would B legal (of course, pure poison would fall under a different set of laws). The goal really is 2 kill ya' slowly - so as 2 milk the slaves 4 maximum expense.

& religion - that's a load of horse poo as well - pure propaganda. Nature is where it's at :) Um, at least we still got a groovy holliday like Thanksgiving - or more accurately 'acquire some more territory' day. What's with the druid stuff on X-Mass? N E 1 know about that stuff? I don't :( Who started that?

Where is the story about the cat that needs medicine? I read that some time ago, already searched for it, but can't find it anymore. Or was it posted somewhere else?


PN co-founder
Might have been from somewhere else Yogi. I repost these, without permission :oops: from another site. I get them e-mailed to me. The site is This Is True, or something like that. Next time I get an e-mail from them I'll post a link.

Hah, I found what I meant somewhere here in More Jokes, page 2. I liked to read that very much even if I have no pets. Posted by Panda55 to you?:

As far as I understand, that's to funny.

I just put text into google speech tool (english to german). The result is much more funny!!!

Now I remember that joke. But having had cats in my life, it's not that far from the truth with most of them. Sarah Lee used to love belly rubs, and since she was small, I could cradle her in one arm, give her a belly rub, and then try to pop a pill in her mouth far enough back that when I tickled her throat she'd swallow it.

I had to give her a pill twice a day for a year when she was fighting cancer, which she overcame. And while she was never thrilled getting the pills, I think in time she knew I was helping her, and eventaully didn't put up too much of a fight. I like talking about her, so I'll think of her maore, but I sure do miss her a lot. And yes, at least towards me, she was a sweet cat.

I considered that story not far from truth even if I only have a few experiences in making a budgie/australian parrot doing what I want. :bonk:
