I had to laugh at the understatement

In a programme called "The Real A&E". Ambulances and paramedics are called to a traffic accident where a motorcyclist is trapped under the front of a lorry. With no sense of irony the paramedic shouts under the truck to the motorcyclist "does it hurt anywhere" He didn't say but I like to think I would shout back "no the truck's fine".
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: I had to laugh at the understatement

My wife loves those programs, personally I find them irritating after a while.
The one thing I find amusing is when the paramedic says to the casualty.."Breathe"!  like there's an option?? Grin
