  1. Doc is also an ex-medic. Many PAs are ex-medics.

    Tonight Tonight. What I remember is that it was a pretty uncomplicated chart. Afterwards, as requested by my daughter, I got the head pumpkin guy, I don't know his name, to sign the sheet music. Daughter loved it. She was only 15.

  4. That is interesting. I did not know that the PA program came out of the SF medic program. When I was a kid, I knew a SF reserve medic who was a PA in civilian life. His wife went to nursing school with my mom. He used to bring us cool Airborne and SF T-shirts from Ft. Bragg. :)

    Yeah when Mellon Collie came out I was 19. Probably 18 when you were playing your part in the studio. That's cool. Those songs are a part of my youth. Your part is missed by the way... when they play it live they use a string effect on one of the guitars. Not the same at all.

    Nope. I was a pharmacy technician prior to going to PA school. I was never a medic. I've worked with a lot of medics though, and as a group, hold them in very high esteem. Know which Military occupation has the most posthumous awards of the Congressional Medal of Honor? It's not hard to guess that one.

    Im a career firefighter/paramedic. I really only am friends with LEO's and other firemen outside of my church. I love the adrenaline factor of being a fireman, but the medic portion has opened my eyes to putting myself in other people's shoes. I have a desire to continue learning more and research current meds/treatments, striving to attain my goal of "no one dies on my watch bc I made a mistake" call it perfectionism, maybe even corny, but I do not like to lose people ever.

    Hey, I work for Dell, too! Well, as of Sept of last year, at least. I was/am a senior consultant for Quest, now Dell.

    In the same boat as you - I need critical thinking and problem solving every day to do my job. I need answers and need to be able to prove those answers with a repeatable process.

    I think I've always been predisposed to critical thinking and this led to my atheism.

    I'm also a bit of a stickler for precise language, this is definitely a product of my job, and that drives some folks on internet forums a bit batty.

    CavDoc has never stated that he is a doctor that I am aware of and I've lurked/posted on GT for a while.

    He has explained this a couple times IIRC why he uses CavDoc.



    My handle is chickenwing, but I assure you I am not a chickenwing.

    Thanks for the clarification, but he's not interested. He's just looking for a chink in the armor.

    Funny thing is, once you realize someones mission in life is to try to get under your skin (dermatobia hominis), it no longer is effective.

    But anyway, I appreciate you taking the time to try.

    I'm relatively new here. But my father was an actual doctor so I refuse to give him the honor of calling him Doc any longer.

    It isn't about showing him. He just isn't a doctor. He hasn't earned the title. I don't really care about whatever military tradition he thinks gives him the right to call himself that. But he simply hasn't earned the title doctor for which Doc is short.

    Your dad was an MD? Good for him. Don't feel bad, sometimes intelligence and motivation skip a generation.

    I'll just point out that you are being childish at this point and this tantrum you have been throwing is evidence that you are decompensating mentally. You're making a fool of yourself.

    I really think you need to sit back and mature abit before posting. Your actions on this thread and others show you really are here for one thing to debate. I think its time the admins step in and perhaps issue you a time out until you and act alittle more mature. This is a religion forum. It is NOT a debate forum. Yes many debates goes on here and if kept civil is ok. You are here for ONE thing only and it is not productive.

    Despite my earlier post, I feel this is a valid point. What we do/did in the military often does not translate well to the civilian world. I don't know very many former medics that would introduce themselves as "doc" in civilian life despite freely adopting the nickname while in the service. It just sends the wrong message. Non-military people don't get it.
