    About 6 years ago, I completely destroyed my elbow. I broke it in several places. When I went to emergency, I received the same treatment. A doctor quickly walked by, looked at it without even touching me, said some jargon to a passing nurse and kept walking. They then made me stand in a hallway for about 20 minutes, while I watched a group of 5 or 6 nurses just stand and socialize about 10 feet away from me. I tried to be good and quiet, but then out of nowhere I felt super weak and then fainted from the pain. I remember right before I blacked out, seeing one of them look over at me and rush at me. I woke up in a bed on a morphine drip. After about 2 hours, they did the xray and realized what actually happened. But because they waited so long, the orthopedic surgeon had left for the day, and because of our shitty medical laws, that meant I now had to schedule my surgery. The soonest they had was 15 days from the incident.

    So they wrapped me up with a bandage and sent me home with 15 days worth of very heavy pain killers. Well, on the day of my surgery, I spent another 10 hours waiting in the hospital. They ran out of time and couldn't see me. It was delayed another 10 days. On try number 2, it was a 16 hour wait before I could see a surgeon. Thankfully he did it, but he did a very poor job. He also didn't fill out my paperwork correctly, so I was literally pushed out the door in a wheelchair, unable to walk from all the drugs, and sent home.

    I couldn't bend my arm after for 2 years. They just kept saying "it'll get better, there's nothing we can do." I finally moved to a completely different province and had another surgeon look at it. He said it was a very poor job, and he could fix it. 2 weeks later, I was in and received care that was miles ahead of what I received in the original hospital. I was in the hospital for two days, as it turns out having your elbow rebuilt is even more painful the second time around. But literally as soon as I woke up from my 2nd surgery, I was able to completely bend and turn my elbow again, as if it had never been broken.

    This story brought back a lot of resentment I have for the Ontario healthcare system. I completely sympathize for that woman.

    The calories in this are unreal!

    I just did the calculations - assuming this serves 4 people, it's approx. 730 cal/serving - probably delicious, but definitely something I'll stay away from.

    Total nutrition value is approx.: 2914 Cal, 209g Carbs, 211g Fat, 165g Protein, 3264mg Sodium, 40g sugar (for anyone interested)

    Yeah, I feel like there's probably a bit more to this story that isn't being mentioned here...

    I don't think this article could sound snobbier - who cares? drink your beer how you like it. taste is such a complex sensation that you can't categorize it in black and white like this at all. i can't stand snotty "foodie" hipsters for this reason.

    I love this idea! I hope they do it in Canada as well!

    The sooner the industry finds a way to work alongside streaming industries rather than against them, the better.

    I used to pirate all my music (except my favorite albums, which I would buy the physical copy), until streaming services finally came to Canada. Now I haven't downloaded anything in well over a year. It's a massive step forward and should definitely continue.

    I don't want to share it because I still use it for a lot of things - but it was the code for my first bike lock I got when I was 7!

    I went through something similar. In less than 3 years, I moved across the country twice, both times taking only what I could fit in my tiny car. It completely changed my perspective on spending and buying "stuff". I hate buying stuff now. I spend my money on things I need, and that is it.

    Reading that whole article, all I kept thinking to myself was "how do they afford this?!"

    "Last served first" sounds like it would operate basically the same way if someone said "no lines allowed". People would just find other stuff to do until they could see no one was there.

    I'm on a very reduced calorie diet and sometimes worry that I'm not getting enough vitamins and minerals in my food. So I take a multivitamin. I have no idea if it helps or not, but I figure I'd rather be safe than sorry. I will stop taking them when I'm back to eating at a maintenance rather than a deficit.
