Don't believe that for a minute. Pharmacy is one of the most complicated professions there is; most doctors don't even understand it very well and depend on the pharmacists to cover them.


According to a pharmacist friend the group with the highest suicide rate is pharmacists.

This persisiant sub freezing cold weather will make the ohio river start icing over at Louisville ,..It Does that every now and then,..my dad was born 1n 1915,.. and grewup fast in the roaring 20s,,. i heard him tell this story serveral times .. when he was in his teens , they would have ice skating parties ,hockey games and dances out on the river ice ,where the river is a mile wide above the lock and dams, and maybe the water 3to 5 ft deep on the Jeffersonville Ind side where the water was still .They Had a Great Time complete with bonfires and beer gardens ,.. they would rope off the dangerous water that was moving above the falls and away from the moving channel ,,.. and all was well,,..One especially cold yr,the entire river frozeoverm,,. closing all river traffic ,,.. except ,.. in those days there was a toll to cross the bridge ,,.And YOU Guessed it !,,.. a few beat the tolls with their model Ts and found a good crossing that everyone began using ,,,.. sometimes crossing 1 hour after a boat went thru in the channel !,.despite POLICE tickets and warnings. ..serveral went in ,,Dad told of Kids that were racing on the river with their cars and broke thru into the channel one nite and were never , ever seen again

(quoted from post at 08:45:57 01/01/1Cool Don?t know how true it is, but several years ago I heard a story about a couple of guys who wanted to go duck hunting on a lake that was frozen over. One was driving a brand new Ford Expedition, hadn?t even gotten plates on it yet. They drove out onto the frozen lake, and their plan was to throw a stick of dynamite out onto the ice to blow a hole in the ice for ducks to land.

They had their dog with them. They threw the stick of dynamite out onto the ice and the dog, who was trained to retrieve things, just naturally ran out, picked up the dynamite, and began running back with it. They guys didn?t know how to stop the dog, so they began trying to shoot it. The dog ran for cover, and the nearest cover was ? under the Ford Expedition.

The remains of the dog and the remains of the Expedition both wound up at the bottom of the lake. And the guy hadn?t even made the first payment on the Expedition.

I have no idea if it?s true or not, but it made a good story.


Kinda funny but as I heard it, it occurred in MN. Be a strange year indeed if there were ducks still around to hunt when the lakes were thick enough with ice to drive on.......ducks proving they are smarter than humans are in much warmer climates by that time...... Laughing
