@49,

And clearly you had nothing but cultural sensitivity in mind when you said "those same asshole Pakis..." I can't imagine how I managed to see that as deragatory!

@46: if the US had any control whatsoever over whether or not China gets to become a world player-- or what Chinese people do and don't get educated about -- then the world would be a veeerrrry different place.

@44: Yeah, that's great and all, but what the fuck does it have to do with what I said in my comment?

I didn't object to using drones on military targets in Pakistan (if we can prove that they're actually military targets and not things we kind of think might be military targets). I objected to using them on civilians -- and to using "don't stand near a terrorist" as an acceptable standard to judge who is and who isn't a civillian.

Then again, the fact that you're using the word "Paki" tells me that I might be wasting my breath.

@31, are you serious?

You do remember that bin Laden was hiding out in a nice Pakistani suburb, unknown to many of the people living there?

It's bad enough to kill terrorists (sorry, people we kind of think might be terrorists) without having to, you know, prove to a judge that we know for sure that they're terrorists. But just balls-out shooting anybody who happens to be standing near them (or standing near where we think they might be)?

Something tells me that that kind of policy miiiiight help to explain why terrorists have such an easy time recruiting people who want to kill us.

Forget your actual risk of pregnancy. You should bite the bullet and buy Plan B because you told the guy that you would.

@43, people die every day from being unable to expel what's in their poop chutes. Things get stuck, things get infected, and, eventually, THINGS TEAR, meaning that all that lovely bacteria gets out of your nice, safe intestine and into the rest of your body, where it proceeds to kill you to death. Mostly, that happens when people don't go to the hospital because they think that they can just hang out, drink some coffee, and wait for the bowel to do what it does. Not a good plan.

@19, that is kind of not accurate. A rectum is not a vagina. Vaginas are blocked off by a cervix. Rectums are not. If I lose something up my vagina, it has nowhere to go. If I lose something up my rectum, it has a long way to go -- and if it goes far enough (absorbing liquid and expanding all the way), then no, I am not going to able to just shit it out. I will have a bowel obstruction -- one that yes, without medical help, could become extremely dangerous.

Dan, I think you're awesome, but honestly, what did the sleep-deprived, overworked staff of a typical ER ever do to you?
