    I believe one of the requirements is to be accused, at least once, of NETY in a post. I think that may be substituted with an allegation that you are just jealous because the poster is young and...

  19. Tool For Un-Occluding IV's?
    I'm willing to bet it was before the age of safety needles and she pulled a stylet out of a new angiocath. I've seen idiot nurses do that. So many things wrong with that scenario.
