Ok. I claim to interfere in healthcare, which I do. Also, my responsible adult is a consultant surgeon.

We are both familiar with the concept of never putting anything smaller than your elbow in your ear.

However..

Ten mins prior to setting off on holiday today I decided to a) put a cotton bud in my ear and b) retrieve it sans the cotton wool tip. It appears to be stuck to my eardrum. The GP practice near where I have rented a cottage looks like getting some work tomorrow.

As we both work in healthcare, she is so happy that I am partially deaf when she is talking at me and that day 1 shall be spent in a surgery being called a dozy pillock.

I assume this is divine retribution for starting a heretic religion on an adjacent thread. Watch yer back Steve!

Perfection is an elusive goal. Many try to attain it. Few succeed. But you, Musket...you came soooo close! I weep for your fall. (grin)

Here's a tip for next time. Rotate the cotton bud when first inserting it. You will find that when rotated one direction, it tightens more around its wooden shaft...rotated the other way, it starts to loosen some. If you always rotate it in the direction of tightening, it's most unlikely to come off when you go to remove it.

Just testing it now myself to see which direction is the right one for tightening...and.........ummm..................-----oh, shit!

Have you tried pouring olive oil in your ear, Musket? The cotton tip can't be stuck with superglue, just wax. Oil (warmed slightly) may flush it out fairly easily. But do try not to poke at your ear too much and inflame the inside. Good luck!

Thread title is nice to know.   Sorry that you're the only Mudcatter who isn't perfect.

But stick around, we'll do our best to teach you.

However, "heretic religion" is not the problem, as I suspect you know.   Your and your fellow militant atheists have determined what everybody else should believe---you are the new orthodoxy (the martyr's hairshirt doesn't quite fit you), and you are not willing to live and let live, which the believers on Mudcat are willing to do.

And please note I was not the one who brought this up on your new thread. For the culprit, look in the mirror. Thread creep?:       Physician, heal thyself.



All that said, sorry about your ear problem.



And I will turn the thread back to you--this is my first and last comment.   Somehow, however, I suspected it would not be said without my participation.

You are all bullying my religion I'll have you know and there are laws about that over here. Just because it doesn't have a name yet and I am having to form a coalition with a Liverpool supporter doesn't make it any less credible than any other Creed.

"Who needs reality when I can find comfort in my delusion?" You've just described most of the people in the world, religious or not!

But I think it's time we heard from your dog, Musket. ;-) He's probably less delusional than 98% of humanity is. I bet he never worries about politics and identifies with no political party whatsoever, for instance. And he probably ignores utterly arbitrary conventions like borderlines drawn on maps, and is unfazed by nakedness in public places.

Ok. Back to silliness.

Yep. My greyhound, known on Mudcat as the good professor, in racing circles as Fridays Touch and the Musket household as Rio is bloody intelligent actually. He is top dog and no mistake. Ten mins from now, he will be strutting round Southwold whilst I carry his shit for him in a bag.

Politics is complicated for him. Born in Kilkenny, raced in Dundalk, his take on life is Irish to say the least but the gravy bone lobby has his vote, as does the campaign to allow dogs to fart without being kicked out from the comfortable fireside rug whilst we are trying to watch telly.

Ex racers make excellent pets. He is timid and took over a year to come out of his shell. I doubt his treatment was much better than the press stories about how racing dogs arettreated so no wonder it took so long. No matter, he has a humane loving family and a hoard of admirers now. He plays second fiddle only to my granddaughter in my affection.

LH....as Ian appears to know as much about greyhounds as he does about politics or social issues, perhaps I can answer your question.

Greyhound breeding kennels often use a prefix such as "Droopy's", "Ballymac", or "Friday's" on most of the pups they produce to advertise their origin...They then add a second part to the name to designate the particular hound.....like "Droopy's Rocket", "Ballymac Pride" or "Friday's Touch".
A "touch" is greyhound parlance for a winning bet.....almost always contrived by devious means! (presumably thats where Ian comes in) :0).

Friday's Touch was a fair beast in his racing days....in fact he is quite closely related to two of my own dogs through his dam line.
I use the "Slaneyside" breeding and the dogs grand dam and great grand dam were from "Slaneyside stock".

Friday's was just under open class as a racer, but even so, was much classier than his owner!

You sound surprised Goofus. I thought your conversations with him, you would have learned a little about his past.

As Akenaton agrees (whilst trying as ever to make me look small) , the names are unique. The extra details he supplied are available on most greyhound sites. My little boy did have a short but successful racing career and was worth a bob or two in his Ireland days. Of course I never knew him then.

Ex racers make excellent pets and come fairly well house trained. They are not always used to homes though and take time to become fully domesticated. He is 6 years old and only last year learned how to play for playing sake, seeing a game of chase in the garden as something he starts rather than me and not feeling he is in trouble.

I suppose the sad bit is the advice from the rescue trusts not to allow them loose in public places as they are trained to see small furry creatures as prey. There is evidence on the RSPCA website to suggest some are trained with live bait, sickening but where money is concerned, not surprising.   Luckily, he has a very large garden to run in and his walks on a lead are long and often.   Otherwise his hobbies include sleeping and farting. He also steals paint brushes and wine corks to chew on.

Earlier this morning on our hols, the beach was empty so he did get a good run. The rescue trusts do say they don't need much exercise. I assume this is to not put people off adopting. Funny though that the more he gets the better he is...

The best thing about greyhounds is that they are non judgemental. He even goes up to gay people for a fuss.   I take it yours do too Akenaton?

You can disagree with someone's choice of football team, prefer alternatives in music or choice of religion including no religion.

But you don't disagree with murder, you don't disagree with bigotry, you don't disagree with intolerance. You state it is wrong. You refuse to give it credence. You deny it the respectability of debate.

Like it or lump it, you repeatedly state an opinion that goes beyond respectability. You exhibit a preference for not respecting the equal rights of people based on their preferences of partners in love. Goofus thinks preference can be"cured." That is disgusting. Full stop.

You're assuming some very bad things about your customary "opponents" that are extreme stereotypes, and are probably not true. A little less heat and a little more willingness to actually listen to what other people are saying and genuinely attempt to understand their concerns would do wonders.

On the other hand, your bickering does provide a certain form of cheap entertainment on a slow day, I must admit...and I know that there's probably nothing I could possibly say to get you to stop doing it....so...what the hell...

Have at it, ye poxy swine! Do your worst, you knaves, varlets, and cutpurses, and the Devil take the hindmost!
