    That last part of that prescription often needs to be repeated three or four times during the evening.

    I'm 71.

    ETA: I don't bother with the vicodin.

    It's safer to substitute vicodin for part of your scotch when you get older?

    I'm seeing camels everywhere so I know it's not Alzheimer's.

    Could be lung cancer though...

    "treated like a demolition derby"

    That pretty much describes me.
    sports, rodeos and motorcycles have taken their toll...

    At this point, I've still never counted how many operations I've had.

    The net assures me I died 3 years ago...

    I have an herbal medicine book and it seems everything can be cured with a lemon water enema. I guess it may work wonders but I will never know.

    Dr Interwebz carries no malpractice insurance.

    On the flip side, you're getting advice worth exactly what you paid for it.

    Looked like 5 weeks in ICU to me. I don't remember much of it, so time travel could have been involved.

    Unless you are allergic to vicodin, then it might not be a good idea. Stick with the scotch.

    Not even that. It really is just tap water sold in a little glass vial with technical words on it. It almost looks like a medicine bottle, you know...by accident.

    I'm all for placebos, they work wonders at a pretty high rates of success. Sugar water or capsules are pretty cheap though so not a good business model.

    They use the Al Sharpton business model instead - go where the money is, not where the problem is.
