It's no more America's responsibility to feed the children of the world than it is to arm it...Let's not turn this into an anti-America thread, guys.  Moving on....

I'm simply posting random facts that show up without regard for if they are about animals, humans, politics, Russia, Korea or whatever. My postings in this thread are random and for fun, no intent to turn the thread to anything otherwise or to post anything in particular.

 

The only thing I do when finding random facts to post here is to leave out those of a sexual nature. Sometimes there seem to be a lot of those out there.

 

As to your other point, I fully agree it's not America's responsibility to feed the children of the world. It's not America's responsibility to police or parent the world at all. Those are points for a serious thread, not a fun and games thread.

This from my studies in pharmaceutical healthcare for my Health Informatics major.

 

If you combine every prescription drug given for every kind of physical disease (cancer, heart disease, diabeties, etc), injury, or chronic physical condition.  They would equal only HALF of the number of prescriptions given in the U.S. to treat emotional issues, behavioral, stress, and depression.  A sad statement of the peace and joy of the modern world we live in.

Geographically, Alaska has the distinction of being the most Eastern State in the U.S. and ironically is also the most Western state because the 180 Longitude which geographically divides East and West travels through parts of Alaska.  Alaska is also the most northern state, and in 1941 tried to purchase 100 square miles of Antarctica and grant it Alaskan statehood so they could also be the most southern.

When I was a child many believed blowing cigarette smoke in the ear of someone with an earache would make them feel better.

Yeah, I heard that one too.  A lot of politicians must have heard it also.  They are blowing smoke all the time.

Yes, I had smoke blown in my ears when I had an earache and all it did was make me gag, cough, sneeze and my nose start running.

 

Having my tonsils and adenoids removed cured my earaches.

The doctors took those out of me, back when I was five years old too.  That was in the forties.  I don't think they do that anymore for some reason.  I never had any ear prOBlems either.  Just about every youngster I know seems to have a lot of prOBlems today.  I believe it's cause the doctors don't the tonsils out the first time there is a prOBlem.  Of couse as usual, I ain't no doctor, so what do I know.  :coffee2:

Insurance companies decided taking them out was costing them too much money so they stopped covering such operations unless there was an extreme need. That's why so many children in the 80s ended up with tubes in their ears.

 

From what I've been told, the insurance companies ended up not covering many tube procedures so the doctors had to switch to something else.

 

It's a sad random fact that because of greed, insurance companies and the government control many doctors decisions more than does actual medical sense.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
