@JUDYAMK I also work in a pharmacy...oh the stories I could tell. When we type out the scripts...we intentionally add "by mouth, in the ear, rectally, whatever" to the directions for that exact reason.

I can't tell you the amount of calls we have gotten asking if it is OK to use expired prescriptions...I got a call yesterday asking if they could use one that expired in 1999!!!! There is an expiration date for a reason people.

is this for real?

People can develop phobias –
an extreme, irrational fear that negatively impacts a person’s ability to lead a noromal life –
and there is a phobia called nomophobia (fear of being out of cellphone service)

Can't you just see the NOMOPHOBIA defense, where someone claims they caused a car accident because they just couldn't stop themselves.

@PATTIJOHNSON.....I used to do a lot of traveling for business and frequently accompanied a colleague who would always get flagged. I came to realize ..he loved the attention. Personally, I thought he was immature. But I seriously believe a few idiots will try something bringing a pressure cooker during this sensitive period...specifically to make a statement and claim they are being stereotyped.

Better safe than sorry.

every reply here is spot on GREAT! Both meanings were caught.
YES! I love SMART people!

@Sheryl --LOL, I know what you mean about those news items. Have you seen that ad on TV where the gals tells the insurance agent that if you read something on the internet, it has got to be real.

Another "Is this for REAL?" The guy who got caught with a tampered passport who tried to bring a pressure cooker in his baggage to the US recently. REALLY?????

Not sure what to make of this thread, but it does generally seem to be a fun discussion among a variety of subjects that you have brought up, KJ!

I like responding to both "the variety of subjects," and on "weight loss subjects." I learn a lot of things from other members regarding health, fitness and diet (besides other things), but I can't say that I've been inclined to lose more weight because of the threads.

For me, the threads are fun, they keep me up-to-date on news items, and they give me a chance to think about my own opinion of things.

So, is this for real? I'd say SO!

Is this for REAL?

Psychiatrists, critics face off over psychiatric manual.
In the new psychiatric manual of MENTAL DISORDERS,
grief soon after a loved one's death can be considered major depression.

I assume that not feeling grief after a loved one's death would be considered denial.
Either way....

A few spark members need to read that for REAL! Some spark members seem to think the cafe or maybe sparkpeople altogether is just about weight loss. They seem to think all other subjects are not welcome

I've been watching the Jodi Arias videos on YouTube.
is exactly the reaction that I had.
It almost seems as if real life has become even more bizarre than the movies.

"General, fun discussion about a variety of topics."

I found this at the top of the SparkCafe' page (a serious place for weightloss discussion).
