Did you know that emergency rabies shots used to be administrated in sets of 20 with large bore needles right into the belly (stomach adipose tissue)?  Yikes.  :huh:

According to House, it definitely could have been rabies. This would have been clued in by the fact that the initial treatment of my wound resulted in me going into a coma and bleeding out of my ass. Then the diligent doctors of the ER, after finally managing to get me stable enough to wake me up from said coma, would have confronted me about my dishonesty and eventually gotten me to confess that I had not, in fact, gotten injured while wrestling with a bear; however, I'll still be too embarrassed to give them a straight answer, so then the doctors would have had to break into my school for answers because what other choice had I given them? And then they'd come across the offending pencil, which they'd know is the right one because it'd still have blood on it and also the right shape for the hole in my finger. But they'd also notice the chew marks along the pencil's shaft, and they'd take it in for testing, upon which the test results would confirm their suspicions: an animal infected with rabies had been chewing on it prior to my using it. So then the mystery would be solved but I'll be dead in 24 hours because rabies is a death sentence once symptoms appear, and it's my own damn fault had I just been honest about it sooner.

I was going to say it was probably for antibiotics, but I actually do remember them saying that the shot was for tetanus because I couldn't tell them the last time I had gotten a tetanus shot, lol. I don't know if it was because of my pencil injury or if it's because they thought I should have it, though.  :undecided:

HaHa, I think you finally edited it so that no one can come back with any snarky "That's what she said" comments.  The original version was really asking for it with "They insisted on poking me in the butt."

Yeah, my dad had to go through the experience after he was bitten by a racoon, lol. I don't think it had to be 20 at the time, though, it was more like... 5? I guess that's how much they managed to improve the process, haha.

Apparently still painful, though.

Or maybe he had to get sets of 20 five times?  :shocked:

It was one of his war stories from before my time, and I can't ask him about it now.

The inappropriateness wasnít so much the content as the fact that he accessed my private information to send me email.  There is a message function on here he couldíve used.  Why he didnít I am not sure. Another user came on and said Van had used his personal email as well but Van quickly deleted our discussion.  Anyways, that is info that is used to register on the site.  Not for him to use to contact us outside of waygook.org.  His doing this might explain the lack of female participation on this site.  Van scaring people away.   Because he deletes all discussion that calls him out we canít know who else he has creeped on.  Vanislander, the journalist warrior oddly takes a strong stand against free speech.  Our comments here will be deleted once he wakes up from his soju slumber.

What is with the ridiculous amount of copycats making a "Reaction to..." channel on Youtube?  It's become ridiculous.  How many Black couples have to make a channel reacting to classic white rock so that white people can watch and say "Oh my God!  I knew Let It Be and Wuthering Heights would blow anyone away?"  We got Jamel_AKA_Jamal already doing fine. And White U.S. college kids? Andy and Alex have had you covered for awhile now.  It's getting out of hand.  And so many of them are full of sh*t.  Love it, hate it or indifferent I don't believe anyone has not heard Hey Jude.  One of the reasons I like the two channels I mentioned above is that they're honest about already knowing some of the music.  Jamel explained he would never play Beastie Boys because they've always been one of his favourites and no reaction video to any of their stuff would be genuine.  The two Black guys who are beyond high when they put out a video is good, but it usually has nothing to do with their reaction to the music.  Those dudes are already hearing colours and seeing music.

Frankenstein's Lab! I don't know why but I just always smile through their videos. Nothing great or original, but you do just get a nice warm fuzzy feeling watching along and reacting. If I'm on the subway or wherever and need a quick chuckle, throw on a Frankenstein's Lab and watch some classic comedy bit.

You'd be surprised at how much of a non-event various things white people think are a big deal and take for granted are in the black community and also how unknown a lot of the "classic" stuff is with young people.

Heck, I had parents who weren't into popular music AT ALL. I didn't F all about the Beatles basically until college. I knew more about the Smashing Pumpkins and Tupac than The Beatles. I think I knew "Yellow Submarine" because I had to sing it one class and then I remember in Middle School that Ringo Starr was a crossword puzzle answer I didn't know. "Twist & Shout" was that song Ferris Bueller sang on the float, I hadn't the foggiest it was a Beatles song. Like I knew OF the Beatles and what they looked like thanks to Simpsons and stuff like that, but when your dominant musical influences during your childhood are classical, opera, folk songs and whatever is on Prairie Home Companion, you aren't really into that stuff. I never listened to much popular music until late middle school and high school. Aside from some rap during the MC Hammer/Vanilla Ice days of elementary school. Of course then I went whole hog and in college went hard into classic rock and such, but yeah, complete non-event and I was raised in a white family.

There's lots of people out there that aren't into The Beatles or Seinfeld or whatever else a lot of people seem to think is "mandatory". Large swaths of black people, other minorities, country folk, religious people and people who don't listen to popular music know very little/don't care much about many songs and bands you take for granted.

This may give an idea of that gap- Black people having a "First Reaction" to a Beatles Song or Seinfeld is as natural and expected as YOU/Random White Person having a first reaction to Patti LaBelle or Mama Mosie or the Madea movies or Martin.

Like I bet if you took random white people, they might know OF Martin and the Madea movies. Probably 50%+ you could trick into thinking Patti LaBelle was some white movie actress from the 1940s, and you'd be lucky if 1% knew who Mama Mosie was.

Good points, but I just think some music has been exposed to such a degree that even if you didn't know the name of the song or the group, when it started playing you'd recognise it.  I was also included the white college youtubers in that criticism because I just don't believe all the "reactions" are genuine.  Like who wouldn't know Barry White's classics or even Tom Jones' yet not have a clue who they were.  But, if you hear it. you know them.  There is so much music I have actively avoided that I'm still familiar with. 

The humour in this clip is because no one could imagine it being true, but who knows?

The joke there was that black people, by and large, weren't into Seinfeld. Anyone black would know and get the joke. It was a "white" show. Hence lots of black people have little awareness of it same as lots of white people wouldn't know Steve Harvey from Bernie Mac.

A lot of people take things for granted that other people know and like the same things they do when they don't. Seinfeld and The Beatles- two things not that big for lots of black people.

I mean one of my coworkers back in the day, black, had zero clue who Jimi Hendrix was and called him "Guitar Man" and zero interest in his music, which caused like 3 white coworkers to nearly have fits. The only one who didn't was the Greek one who only listened to techno and hip-hop and didn't give 2 craps about classic rock either.

If you want to get a sense of the divide and obliviousness despite a common language, think of the divides in sports- Americans without the foggiest clue about rugby, cricket and football. People from SA or NZ who know next to nothing about hockey or baseball or American football.

A fun one for us Americans is Brits/Euros reacting to college football and the sheer size and spectacle of the whole thing. Many have no clue as to the scale and what goes into college football.

But so many now are pandering and clearly full of sh*t because they've seen how successful channels like Jamal have been.  Everyone's hopping on the bandwagon which is my chief complaint. Even if all these Black people don't know Let It Be, dod they really think we need a fifty third reaction video from a channel that came into existence two weeks ago?  That's my biggest problem. 

And not just Black people reacting to white classic rock or movies.  There's this NZ family that have clearly figured out if they pander to the Yanks they'll find a bigger market than a "Where Frodo Drank Mead" video.  They keep putting out stuff like "NZ family reacts to size of American Army" and then just play someone else's video while oohing and aahing.

Someone never even knowing any verse of the song, nor recognising ANY of the melody, not even knowing that Queen was a band would be like a NZ or a SA saying that they weren't even aware that hockey was a sport or that it was played in winter.

I cannot name a single Ella Fitzgerald song, but I'm sure if a couple came on I'd go "Ah yeah, I've heard this somewhere" and when quizzed, I'd say "Yeah, she was singer from the 40s."

I don't think every single black person would pass a quiz on 5 questions about Queen, but jesus. Even my dad knows who bloody Snoop Dogg is.
