    Again, he suggested injecting it.

    Maybe you should take in consideration, with your act of liking trump and playing a dumbf**k redneck, that less mentally stable mdl members don't get your act;)

    When I got my MRI for my brain tumor, they used Gadolinium as a contrast.

    These days, they use something different.

    I'll find out and let you all know when I get my abdominal MRI. They'll be using contrast too.

    First two MRI on my lower back i fell asleep. So 3rd time I said I'll put my hands behind my head with elbows up. Not a Good Idea. Both shoulders rolled back out the sockets and Bat screamed for like 45 minutes till dey got the Emergency Room Doctor and Anesthesiologist down to knock me out. From den on I'm claustrophobic and dey had to put me under. Also need both shoulders replaced. Ain't gonna happen o_O

    Chinese government has "rules". They even have laws. They committed mass murder. And they censor speech.

    https://qz.com/1846277/china-arrest...onavirus-memories-page/?utm_source=reddit.com

    One of the biggest problems with censorship is that it dumbs-down the discourse to the level of the censor. If the censor disagrees with the point, doesn't understand the point, misinterprets the point, doesn't like the person that posted it, or isn't intelligent enough to even participate in the discussion, much less "moderate" it, the level of discourse naturally evolves and adapts to the level of the deficiencies of the moderator/censor.

    Because:
    Why post something that the Moderator/Censor is going to delete/censor? Why risk having your account suspended? It's called "the chilling effect" and socialists used to complain about it all the time until they acquired power, and now it's their primary weapon. They don't win arguments on merit; they win arguments by censoring any opinions that are counter to their political objectives. All that talk about "rules" etc... is meaningless and dishonest, because rules can be interpreted broadly, subjectively and the standards can change at any time and for any reason. The very nature of human speech is that it is ungovernable. It's the first response to danger, or alarm, and it's hard-coded into our DNA. Also, speech control is mind control. Preventing one person from expressing their thoughts to another is controlling the minds of both people. Many simple-minded people are in favor of censorship and "moderation" because they lack the ability to think and express anything other than what someone else has told them and/or what other people consider to be acceptable. This creates stagnation and degeneration, and increasing levels of intolerance. Further, it rewards those that use their perception of being "offended" as a means by which to "win" an argument that they lack the ability to win on merit. If the lowest retard in the room is insulted by the smartest person in the room, the smartest person must retract his statement, apologize to the retard and suffer a permanent loss of credibility. In short, the retard wins.

    I find this completely unacceptable, and refuse to participate in any system that punishes the superior, and rewards the inferior.

    Thread closed and unpinned.
    If a team majority requests deletion it'll vanish soon.

    It derailed pretty much. It is not possible and I am right that some people simply cannot go together....
    It's no matter of intelligence. A few of them have even studied.

    I am sick of trying that again. I offered a will to discuss rationally and posted my POV. But my offer has been treated with contempt...

    I cannot justify that any longer at the MDL team...sorry.
    Sad...:annoyed:
