Nope, but I accept that there are prodigies. I wouldn't want that for my kid. These are my friends and peers who are teaching their 2-year olds to count.
He was from a family of snow boarders or ski fanatics, had an eight year old sister or brother who was boarding too and had their grandmother was doing it too. It was on the humans are awesome or the business insider feed on facebook.
I'm a believer in late developers, I couldnt read properly until a couple years after I was at secondary school but once I got into the habit I became such a reader and an over achiever
At the hospital lab since the rheumatologist wants more blood work.
Wonder if I should bother telling the nurses this time to use the butterfly needle on the first attempt. They never listen, then apologize profusely for sticking me several needless times. Or nicking the bone of my wrist. It doesn't hurt, really, it's more the thought of making my skin needlessly vulnerable to infection that bugs me.
It's kind of annoying to get a smile-and-nod /ignore my warnings, when the regular needle fails EVERY time. Butterfly needle. Left arm. One of the veins of the antecubital fossa... Not the back of my hand. Let me make a fist/pump my hand, you'll make me do it anyway. Yes - a thousand times, YES - I fucking hydrated. I just have tiny, miserable veins that hate nursing staff & their one purpose in this world is to undermine said staff's abilities in front of whatever trainee is standing around uncomfortably close by at the time.
So listen & let me help you to not look like an idiot, going from the bend in my elbow to my hand to my elbow to my other arm, & repeating the whole dance again before you try the butterfly or get another nurse who immediately asks if you've tried that yet.
:edit: OMFG what is the holdup? I'm the only person in the lab waiting area aside from this elderly..androgynous individual who just materialized here, at some point. Wtf is taking so long. Take my blood already. I have to get outta here by 615 if I want time to pick up my prescriptions & get my friend when she gets outta work, since I'm using her car.
Looks like I'm gonna have to be a bit blunt this time about the needle type. I don't have time for the I'm SO sorry! Song & stabby dance, today.
:edit: That grandma wasn't even a patient! Her grandkid just showed up from another area & left with her. I'm the only patient here. I've BEEN the only patient here!
..maybe it's a shift change or something. Sigh.

Reason: Because I'm tired, sore, crabby, pressed for time and fucking crabby. And because I can.

i got a rant to tell you, yeah i got a rant, now listen to this:
here it is already wednesday and i still haven't done anything significant with my life.
i mean what the heck is that all about? who's my manager anyway?
SJWs are going to ruin the fledgling career of Leslie Jones (of the new ghostbusters). She's hilarious in a way that other comediennes are not. Much like Norm McDonald and Tracy Morgan pretty much anything she says is funny.
Did anyone ever bitch about Tracy Morgan's acting or comedy being racist?
Take the weakest thing in you
And then beat the bastards with it
And always hold on when you get love
So you can let go when you give it
I watched it once a long time ago and i only remember the scene where they destroy the copier in a field. I suck at remembering movies. I watched the thing twice in 2 months wasn't drunk and wasn't distracted both times but i couldn't remember it the 2nd time it was like watching it for the 1st time.
