A great moment from Voyager : The Haunting of Deck Twelve.

An alien life form is "sucking all the breathable air" from the bridge, and the reaction of the crew was to start coughing.  I thought that was kind of odd, so I search Wikipedia for "hypoxia" to see how the crew should  have reacted.  Here's what I found:

"The symptoms of generalized hypoxia depend on its severity and acceleration of onset.
In the case of altitude sickness, where hypoxia develops gradually, the symptoms include light-headedness / fatigue, numbness / tingling of extremities, nausea and anorexia. In severe hypoxia, or hypoxia of very rapid onset, ataxia, confusion / disorientation / hallucinations / behavioral change, severe headaches / reduced level of consciousness, papilloedema, breathlessness, pallor, tachycardia and pulmonary hypertension eventually leading to the late signs cyanosis, bradycardia / cor pulmonale and hypotension followed by death."

I didn't see coughing in there anywhere.  LOL

JUST FRIGGING AWFUL. . .READ THESE
 
• Rule #3 Do not be afraid.
• Rule #4: Do not verbally defend yourself.
• Rule #7: Do not tell on bullies.
• Rule #8: Don’t be a sore loser
• Rule #9: Learn to laugh at yourself and not get “hooked” by put-downs.

You can read the full list, along with their descriptions
Fifth grade students at Zeman Elementary School in Lincoln, Neb., were recently sent home with a “flyer” outlining how they should handle bullies. The instructions were apparently deemed so ridiculous by parents that the school district quickly issued an apology and the “inaccurate information” was pulled. That was...

From Art Bell: Somewhere In Time, November 2, 1995:

"I've got a fax here that I'm going to read, and I'll deal with it in a second, concerning Vince Foster; and the hearings yesterday, and I was aware of it...I will read the fax and deal with it.  I didn't bring it up for a good reason, but I will read the fax.  Here we go.

'Art, the following occurred yesterday in the Senate Whitewater hearings.  During a series of intense questions regarding phone records, Maggie Williams, Mrs. Clinton's Chief of Staff, answered, "The night Vince was killed..." and then quickly corrected herself to "The night Vince committed suicide..."  This was about a half-hour into the hearing.  I've got it on tape if you'd like to hear it.'

I did hear it, thank you.  'Please verify an error if you feel it is relevant.  Either way, it sure was an interesting slip-of-the-tongue.  I was going to phone (in to the radio show), but I thought you'd rather have the choice of airing this or not.'" 

Gotta love the Internet.  I can listen to an old radio show, transcribe the content, and post it publicly here.  Hope I don't suddenly "disappear."

Work
Occupation
I'm in the process of becoming an author. While that's going on, I'm working as a janitor to support myself. My greatest career was as an electrician. I've worked a lot in food service. I used to work on the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California, and I still love that beautiful old boat. I've worked for a dairy, for a newspaper, in telemarketing (don't hate me too much), I've mowed lawns and shovelled snow and done general handyman work.

Introduction
I'm a writer, and president of a publishing company, Happy Cat Books.  I live in Cheyenne, Wyoming with my two cats, Stig and Jerri.  I've written a collection of short stories about my two lovely kitties, and although they're presented for entertainment value, I also hope you find something useful in them.  I've spent a lot of time and energy trying to make my cats happy, and I put those ideas together in 5 Short Cat Tales,which is for sale at happycatbooks.com.  I've included in that book a couple of other stories that were written by my sister and my sister-in-law, that I edited/co-wrote.  I have three blogs you can read at toastandbacon.blogspot.com , and mysteamengine.blogspot.com, and happycatbooks.blogspot.com.  I'm on Facebook and Twitter as well, just look for my logo.  See you on the social sites!

PS  Yes, I know I need better pictures.  I'm working on it, okay?!
Bragging rights
I went to school, but I'm really self-educated in the topics I love. I have had too many jobs in my life, but it's given me a lot of experiences to draw upon. I worked as an electrician in the 1990's, licensed in the state of Colorado. I survived a chronic illness, which no doctor could diagnose or treat. I also continue to survive the war going on between my two cats, day and night.
