First Aid, The Under Appreciated Skill

First Aid Gets no Love

We interrupt our normally scheduled programming for a rant. it’s a simple but timely but timeless rant. With the recent shooting in Los Vegas, I once again realize that first aid must be the most under-appreciated skill. First aid is one of the most universally useful skills. It does not matter your age, job, location, creed, or race, first aid is useful to you. It’s useful to me being an expatriate that lives alone as it to my married friends with kids back in the USA.

Harry Potter is Fucking my Sister

I use to know a red headed Irish man. When he got drunk he use to do a Ron Weasley impression
