So....who's getting lynched for this one?
I thought ESD was Irish, not Chinese
I don't understand how we're importing food products from these savages.
I got food poisoning from my trip to China last week. But it was from shell fish. I think it was from this restaurant which was in the chinese ghetto, the kitchen was the guys apartment and the dining area was the street. You pointed at the live sea animal you wanted and they would go in their apartment and cook it (quite good but not gutted). To go to the bathroom you used the bathroom in their apartment.
The food poisoning ward in the hospital was awesome, you go in, it's a tiny line, they take you to your own room and immediately with out tests give you anti-biotics and an IV drip. No forms, no bullshit, no delay before you can get your meds. All of it for $30. And you leave when you want, you don't get charged for staying in the room. I got better in 24-36 hours.
It was actually a romantic dinner, we had cold beers and sea food by the ocean side. We had sea snails and these mussle like things.
Most of the food in China is amazing though and cooked / prepared well.
They didn't ask for a medical history to see if you might have a potential allergic reaction to the anti-biotics?
I could give you about 50 reasons just off the top of my head why this hardly qualifies as "awsome" medical treatment. You got seriously lucky bro. I have been expossed to "health care" in China as well. Next time you are there take a little visit to a dentist and you will get a serious attitude adjustment in regards to their lais·sez faire attitudes towards "treatment".
Yep, no tests to check against allergy. Where-as in the US you would do the tests, pay extra, and have to wait (in the mean while the infection gets worse) in China they immediately give you the cure. Which one out of 1000 cases would save more lives? Who knows, but the Chinese version is quicker, more comfortable, and cheaper.
Another interesting thing is the antibiotics were OTC.
They're gonna be caught quite literally telling joke and doing peepee in our Coke in just a short while.... you watch!
And I am sure those antibiotics were pharmaceutical grade... :icon_eek:
They were pretty mild, made me a little drowsy is all. I think the reason they worked so well was because I started taking them quickly after getting sick. Also they might have been specially designed for stomach bacteria.
[Dr Evil]Riiiiiight[/Dr Evil] All I can say is China is the wild west for drugs and such...
http://www.fda.gov/oc/po/firmrecalls/dentfresh07_07.html (I know toothpaste dude... some asshole in a factory in China misread Diethylene Glycol (when making a batch of toothpaste) instead of Propyelene glycol so would not even want to guess what they gave you... gah.
Oh wicked quick search of "Chinese forged drugs"
This is how they weaken us before their slow, crushing takeover of the world.
They just recalled a bunch of toys made in China because they're made of lead paint. When you make a toy that you know will be eaten by a few retards, why would you make it with lead paint? If this was the very first toy ever, fine. But it's 2000 fucking 7. Is it cheaper? Do they just hope we won't notice?
Good riddance to the toy eating rug rats.
Cost seems to drive most of it... like my buddy sources automotive tooling in China and he can get four molds made there for the cost of one made here. And some of the horrors he saw in main land... like green rivers of cadminum etc...
Any word on Chinese Maryanne ? is she still on Girrigan's Irand ?
Maybe the American manufacturing sector will see a comeback.
