Out Of Control

Monday 17 July 2017

Reference visit to ER, looks like kindly old Doc Welby will keep Jan another day at least, maybe two, to make sure she's de-infected. Don't understand her disappointment about staying in hospital, what with the comfy beds, quiet wards and delicious food, but there's just no accounting for preference. This allows me to run amok, eat all the lollies on the boat and watch every blood and guts movie on Netflix at full volume. It doesn't get any better.

Biked to hospital this morning (15 KM each way), but should have the car this afternoon to allow greater scope for aforementioned running (amok is from Malay and means "rushing in a homicidal frenzy"... we're seldom homicidal except around screeching children while parents ignore them nearby).

After hearing Jan describe her restful night listening to the constantly retching wally brought into emergency last night with blood alcohol of .22 who may have a concussion from falling off his bike, it occurred to me that Australians seem to imbibe a tad more than your average bear. Checked with WHO (World Health Organization) for per capita consumption rates. Topping the list, not surprisingly, are Russia and many former Soviet Union countries. At the bottom, also expected, are predominantly Muslim countries. Based on 2015 projections of 191 countries Australia comes in at #9, best of the west, well above sentimental favorite Ireland and also France and Germany. America is even further down at #49. Hooray for us. However, with Jeff Sessions as Attorney General cracking down on even legal drug use we may find ourselves on the way up. Hooray for us.
