Beer, Blade, and Crazy: Careless Whiskers @dogbomb1 Follow My body is willed to the UCI Medical School, so I wrote a note for the student (s) who are stuck with my weird husk. I want them to have fun AND learn valuable skills. Life is too short not to enjoy a good giggle. Hey there doc! My name is Tony and I'll be your practice cadaver. I sincerely hope my body helps you to become a great doctor. was 55 years old when I kicked off. I was diagnosed with ALS in March of last year and I elected to make the transition to whatever comes next before the disease made that decision for me I was an avid runner, swimmer and outdoor enthusiast. I worked as a veterinary technician and I had two crazy mutts that i loved very much. I played the guitar (poorly) and lived for music.I had a ton of wonderful friends who I miss very much. I often dressed up as a giant dog, drank too much beer, and took myself for walkies. I loved to chat with people, and having a meaningful discussion that was both interesting and insightful was about my favorite pastime. As you work on my body, please remeber that I had a happy, wonderful life, and you are permitted to giggle at my weird architecture, ooh and aah at the intricacies of my innards, and generally have fun as you learn. I hope I have helped you to pursue your passion. The world needs great doctors, and I have no doubt that you'll be one. Now, lets get to work! Pick up that #10 blade and lets explore this together. Cheers! Tony 5:03 PM-1 Apr 2019 Diagnosed with ALS and very little time left to live, this man donated his body to a medical school and wrote this letter to the students that will eventually practice on his body. I found this strangely wholesome.

This never occurred to me. Not once. That Americans are against Health Care because they think it actually costs tens of thousands of dollars for a broken arm, hundreds of thousands for a complicated birth, millions for cancer treatment. Because they’ve never known anything different. The idea that a broken arm is only a couple hundred bucks; a complicated birth a couple thousand; cancer treatment only tens of thousands; all easily covered by existing tax structures. This explains a lot.  And it’s a good example of what I was talking about in my post on scarcity being used to prop up ableism – always question the idea that a resource is genuinely scarce.  Even if it seems obvious that it is, quite often that’s the result of careful manipulation and misconceptions that you’re not even aware of.   And never think you’re too smart to be fooled by that kind of thing, it doesn’t work like that.  Similarly, don’t think people who are fooled by something are stupid.  Nobody can have all the information about everything, and nobody has the time and energy to investigate and put together conscious conclusions about every piece of information they’re given.  It doesn’t take being stupid, or even just gullible, to believe something like this. I currently live in a country without free medical care and still, it’s enormously cheap compared to the USA. An American expat wrote a piece for our English language paper about how she paid more for parking at the hospital than giving birth to her baby that’s pretty interesting: https://grapevine.is/mag/articles/2016/01/06/healthcare-in-iceland-vs-the-us-weve-got-it-so-good/ Yesterday I had to go to the hospital cause I injured my eye, I’m frankly dreading what the bill is going to be, but what made me balk was being told in the pharmacy that my insurance was denied for the antibiotic eye drops and it’d be over $100 out of pocket. So I didn’t get my eyedrops. I’ve had these same drops before living in the UK. They cost me seven GBP. It’s the exact same drug, same steroid, same strain of antibiotic. But somehow the US gets away with charging $100 for a generic non brand version of a drug which is easy to create and widely used. It’s downright robbery, but also a form of eugenics through poverty and class warfare. You keep the poor poor by making sure basic necessities remain unattainable and then you make it seem like the norm so no one fights it. The rest of the world is not like this. Eat the rich. Resist. It’s downright robbery, but also a form of eugenics through poverty and class warfare. THIS. THISTHISTHIS. THIS IS WHAT I KEEP TRYING TO TELL PEOPLE. This  always question the idea that a resource is genuinely scarce.

We need support in this trying time as the great beast called Facism rises. Don’t tolerate intolerance. Stay angry. Stay together. Stay smart. resistance heroes also held strategic meetings, distributed information, raised funds, supported arrested comrades, supported friends and family of arrested comrades, infiltrated the enemy, sabotages,organized strikes, distributed misinformation, build handmade radios and guns and bombs, give medical aid in secret, resolve conflicts between hidden refugees and their hosts, distributed food and held even more meetings. Resistance was and is a lot of different kinds of work. People who punch Nazis generally already know that. Antifascist networks are doing a lot of things behind the scenes to stop fascists. The punching part is just the one that sometimes happens publicly. So yeah, this tweet is mainly useful for those that see a nazi getting punched and think that’s all anti-fascists do.
