Re: Sorry I've been away

I found out a few minutes ago Min that a woman died March last year from the same procedure that I underwent, a contaminated probe gave her Hep B. The report condemning the ward was published a few days ago, so I was a nasty shock for them. My wife was phoned and warned I might not make it, a volunt...

Re: 13K years ago in FLA

To be honest Min I said no if I was to end up in a vegative state, otherwise, yes.
Mind you, I was on a Morphine drip! :D

Re: Sorry I've been away

Hi Min. I had a heart attack on Sunday, totally unexpected and it damn near finished me!
Got back home about half an hour ago, very shaky I might add, but still breathing I'm glad to say.

Re: Dino deaths.

Simple organisms have no true heart, just a pulsing artery to squeeze the blood along, so a secod 'heart' is feasible. We have one way valves in our veins to stop blood pooling in our legs, such in the neck would have helped the load on the heart with the long necked sauropods, but wouldn't have hel...

Re: Dino deaths.

That'll be the day! :lol: I suspect that the faster predators had a 4CH but as I said earlier the big herbivores would seem to have gained little from such, having said that their arteries must have been made of concrete! And something must have stopped them from 'redding out' when they lowered thei...

Re: Dino deaths.

The respiratory system of birds is more efficient than that of mammals, transferring more oxygen with each breath. Which would have given birds an advantage, the Crocodilia have four chambered hearts, which is less efficient than the four chambered hearts of mammals and birds, so if the Crocs could...

Re: This could be dynamite.

Yep, many of the 'Jewish' jokes I've heard over the years could be seen as anti semitic, but for the fact they were told by Jews.
To be able to laugh at your self is generally a good thing IMO.

Dino deaths.

An impact, the massive eruptions? I've been studying dino skeletons and suggested metabolisms. We know now that some at least were warm blooded, that implies a fairly active life style which also implies either a 3 chamber heart or more likely a four chamber heart, either of which raises a problem. ...
