Yes, you were taunting. Reread yourself.
I am not paranoid.
I got splatted for mentioning 24 hour collections, in a thread about urine collection.
My then medical community was pretty sharp re medicine, as are a number of other places in the u.s. and the rest of the world. We were never isolated.
No, I wasn't taunting you, and I should know better than you what I intended.
I was joshing you but that is something entirely different. I though you could take some gentle ribbing, but maybe I was wrong.
Maybe you're not paranoid but you are displaying a very thin skin on this topic.
You seem to want to be affronted by anything and everything.
I have no reason to believe that your medical community was not a world leader and set protocol for other medical communities around the globe. As far as this thread goes, it really doesn't matter.
Irrespective of how influential your medical community was to the wider medical community at large, it was quite isolated in comparison to the far broader community of people who include bakers, teachers, stock brokers, retail clerks, housewives, construction workers, lawers, steam fitters et al, and who, believe me, would never think collecting urine for 24 hours in large jugs to be common.
Lighten up while you still can.
I like and respect you Osso, but these silly tiffs generated by the chip you are carrying on your shoulder are becoming tiresome.
