  1. I have to jump in and say veterinarians do take nutrition courses that allow us to understand peer-reviewed evidence-based scientific information about diets for all species (sans humans). That is exactly why there are products like Hill's and Royal Canin available.

    Miracle Workers

    I'm really enjoying this show too. Steve Buscemi is awesome as god, and I loved that he was illiterate in this past episode. Just when you think he's an evil dick, turning people into beans when they displease him, bam, not true. They seem to be taking their time with character development, which is refreshing.

    Probably a typo--I'm sure you meant lipedema or lymphedema. Lymphoma is a type of cancer.

    I won't quote your whole post, just the sentiment. I'd agree with you if these were normal kids except that they're not. They are spoiled, entitled young adults who have gotten everything they ever wanted in life without working for it. Lest we forget where Olivia Jade was when this all broke--she was spending her spring break on the yacht of the chairman of USC's Board of Trustees.

    And I love that they have a towel covering the dog's "privates".
  6. It's a (very bad) take off on the beginning of Baby Got Back
  7. What makes me scratch my head about this one is how much they spent initially on the products. Look at the reverse--if the $700 shoes only sold for $100, the seller lost a shitload of money. It they hadn't bought $700 shoes to begin with, they would be able to buy a car, a wedding AND a vacation, plus have money left over.

    @Scarlett45 didn't say everyone over 65 wears adult diapers on planes, just those with mobility issues. There are many older men with prostate issues who also do this. It allows them the freedom to fly without being afraid of having an accident. Hell, I'm not close to 65 and there are times on some flights when the seat belt light never turns off and my bladder is ready to burst. So I totally get it.

    "It's teeny!": the World of Healthcare

    That's pretty much the case. The FDA won't let companies use names that are actual words or sound like a claim. With all the new products being submitted, finding a name is getting harder and harder. It truly is like a game of scrabble. That's why they're now down to using x, q and z.
  11. I can't help thinking Paragard sounds like a flea/tick medication.

    He shouldn't have to demand it. It's expected.

    He's not going to go to prison for this. But it is hard to be a character on a popular show when you have lost support from the audience. Dare I say "Roseanne"?

    For whatever reason, this was a real anxiety for him. The medical profession needs to recognize that people come with different challenges that may not be logical. Her lack of empathy makes me believe that instead of him being better with needles in the future, he was more traumatized and will be worse.

    Just when I think I can't love Dr. Now more, he goes above and beyond. Not only did he immediately call bullshit on her only eating large portions, no soda and no snacking, he saw right through the Christian support. Right out of the gate he said that he thought Christian figured Maja would fail and that he wouldn't have to move. That Dr. Now has seen it all.
