I am nearly speechless.
The illustrious people who look after our health were in the news again yesterday. Once more, they have managed to kill a poor girl with their incompetence. There is rarely a week that goes by without someone being killed or maimed by our “health service”.
I saw yesterday though that it last they are doing something constructive.
They are providing a week long course on how to cough.
Do you know how to cough?
I would have thought it was a fairly basic action that most of us have got the hang of from a fairly early age?
I can cough if I want to. If I have a cold, I can cough if I don’t want to. I’m sure you are in the same situation? Even our dog can cough, and does so on occasion.
Apparently our health service think that training is required.
I suppose it would make sense if this course was for the benefit of new-born babies, where they could start life off on the right footing and be experts in coughing from the outset. That would make a strange sort of sense.
But no. This course is for the benefit of doctors, nurses, dentists and medical attendants. What in the name of sweet holy fuck is this about? Instead of teaching them how to correctly diagnose a severe headache, they are teaching them how to fucking cough? Instead of teaching them that it is better to remove a damaged kidney and leave the good one, rather than remove the good one and leave the poor victim with a damaged kidney, they are giving a course on how to wash their hands?
I find this unbelievably surreal.
This is weirdness to the power of infinity.
There are times when I am at a loss for fucking words.
