    technically you would drink krok being it is the shit extraction of codeine from cough syrup that uses codeine. I still wonder why you wouldn't just drink the cough syrup.

    The reason I know so much on the subject is because I am very pro-active in fighting a cough. I like to take some just in case to make sure, and the trippy fun is a plus. But really I am taking it for the cough because taking it for fun would be wrong, just like playing with a super deadly weapon just for kicks would be wrong.

    I'm calling bullshit. No way are US lightweights ready for more than one can each of Icelandic beer. That shit doubles as snowmobile fuel.

    That's a moot point really. I wouldn't approach Tererun to purchase any product or service unless I was in an OSHA approved biohazard suit and lost a bet.

    oh ye of little faith. :no: Not condoning drinking, but I did my share. My two tours of Korea should have been enough to make me stop completely, but my dad didn't raise any quitters!

    Trump writes off the 11 military personnel suffering possible traumatic brain injuries after the Iranian attack on Al-Asad as "they had headaches, it's not serious".

    and? His uninformed opinion won't stop these soldiers from getting the medical attention they need. It's not like the doctors & nurses said "the president says you only have a headache, so adios! Don't let the hospital door hit you on the way out!" or anything. Sorry but I've had plenty of leaders with a "shake it off, you're fine!" attitude during my military time.
    Okay, fire off a joke! Something like "that explains much!" for example.

    Is this a smart attitude? Most likely not, but many soldiers take pride in being able to "tough it out" when they are injured and expect their leaders to assume they can handle anything. Obviously the medical staff are "the cooler heads" and will take care of the soldiers as needed.

    Not a sports fan, but I think quite a few coaches have a "shake it off you'll be fine" attitude when their athletes get their bell rung.

    So you don't have a problem with it? You don't have a problem that Trump says traumatic brain injuries don't count as being wounded?

    Trump has proven that traumatic brain damage and mental retardation won't keep you from the most powerful position in the world.

    what he says about it doesn't matter. He's not a medical expert. The medical experts are the ones that make the decisions as to the severity & treatment of their injuries - the president has no say in this other than to offer his opinions. The military has a lot of leaders that are full of bluster, bombast, and transparent macho posturing & bravado. You learn to tune it out and ignore it. You did serve in the military if memory serves or I may be thinking of Shooter. A lot of wordforge members have served, so if you did you know the drill on leaders that you wish would just shut up most of the time and just stick to the facts. Trump would be an example of one of those types of leaders.

    really? Check the wordforge archives for my opinions on Obama (other than busting on him for being a Democrat). I have a much higher opinion of him than you have of Trump. But hey, he's evil & Hitler & racist & dumb and all that so fuck him, right?

    Okay, so the recurring theme I keep getting from you is that you don't think it makes any difference who's president because nothing a president can say or do will have any substantial effect big picture. Is that close?

    no it's not. What the president says & does can have a great effect on the big picture. But we weren't talking about the big picture. Eleven people being medically evaluated for possible brain injury as a precaution is pretty serious stuff, but considering what was going on in the sandbox about twelve years ago? It kind of pales in comparison - but that's just my 2 cents.

    So I guess dissing Gold Star parents is okay too. I guess dissing John McCain for being captured was okay. I guess all of these are okay...
