And learn how to correctly use ellipses ....

That's hilarious.

Ellipses are used to indicate missing or unspoken words, and there are always three of them, not four.

EXAMPLES:

"Oh, say can you see ..."

or

"HLB is a complete ..."

Nice try, though,

You live in a state with a population that is less than the population of the greater Atlanta area, and where about 1.7% of your state's population is African American, whereby roughly 55% of the greater Atlanta area is African American.

You don't know what racism is, and you don't know what reverse racism is, nor have you ever lived in an area that racially segregated.  I bet you didn't have one single African American in your schools, when you were growing up.

It could be said that your state is racist, because you don't have many African Americans in your state.

You need to come down to the Southeast and let me take you to some clubs in certain areas where you can "blend".  You will get your ass kicked just because of the color of your skin.

You don't know what racism is.  To you it's just a word in the dictionary, and not something that you've ever lived and experienced.

Right, famously, the American South has TONS of black people because they are so welcoming to black people.  Got it.

So Saturday was fun.  Wok to symptoms of stroke.  Partial paralysis in facial muscles and tongue.  Nephew came over to take me to Hospital.  Did some quick googling and concluded on the downside it was stroke with slight brain damage or, on the upside Bell’s Palsy.  Told my nephew my conclusion and he looked at me and said from the way I looked and sounded it was a fucking stroke.  I tended to agree with him because Bell’s is generally a follow on to a prior viral infection and as far as I know I hadn’t had any.
Got to ER, rushed through EKG, CAT Scan and MRI.  So after about 6 hours they came and told me Bell’s Palsy.  Good news because generally temporary nerve damage rather than brain damage.  Most symptoms clear in few weeks to 6 months.  I can’t hold my right eye closed bottom lid muscle paralyzed, mouth hangs down on right side won’t close against glass or cup to drink and tongue feels swollen slowing and slurring speech and use less to move food around while eating.  That’s the good news.

Today I got a call from the hospital asking if I wanted to schedule a visit with an ear nose and throat specialist about what they found on the left side of my throat.  I asked what did they find because nobody had said anything about my throat at all.  She didn’t know and called someone.  Called me back and told me they found a lesion on my paratid gland.  After some google research most common reason for that is a tumor, cancerous or no cancerous.  Here we go again.

Geeze Don, no fun.  I hope you get through this. Best wishes.

Hope you are feeling better, and the lesion is benign. Next time don't fuck around with self diagnosis, get someone to immediately take you to ER, strokes are not something to mess around with, and time can be critical.

I agree.  I was waiting for my nephew to drive to my place 10-15 minutes, when I did the googling

so little if any time wasted.  Still, solid advice.  Mayo Clinic and John Hopkins pages said most parotid gland lesions are benign, some cancerous but I’ll be hoping you’re right!  Thanks for well-wishes.

Sounds like you’ve got some medical background.  I’m taking a steroid for 5 days in connection with Bell’s Palsy.  Blood sugar is spiking, once as high as 160 after eating nothing but skinless chicken breast and avocado in prior 24 hours, once 135, while it normally is about 104.  Online sources say those spikes are normal for steroids.  I’m seeing my Doc on Friday, know anything about it?

Don, you have your nephew to help you out right? He’s solid?

Unfortunately my medical knowledge is mostly from experience with family members.  My grandmother,  who lived with us until she passed away when I was 18 was paralyzed on one side and wheelchair bound the final 15 years of her life by a stroke. They run in my family,  so I have some awareness. 

As for steroids spiking your blood sugar,  had that happen with my mother about a year ago. She had a steroid injection for a back issue,  and her blood sugar and blood pressure both spiked. She became incoherent and we were fearful that she was having a stroke. Rushed her to ER , and once they got her sugar and BP down she returned to normal.  Very scary.

Same, my grandmother had a stroke while we were in the ER for my uncle (who had taken about 2 dozen sleeping pills because his wife left him, blah blah, long story, he's fine now).  My G-ma was dragging her feet, slurring speech, and docs said it was a miracle she had the stroke AT the hospital, otherwise she'd likely be dead.   

She lived another 4 years, but it wasn't the kinda life you want.

Three ellipses mean there is the beginning of the sentence, followed by an omission of the sentence, and then the last part of the sentence.  FOR EXAMPLE:  "Quack 12 thinks he pulled one over on HLB ... then showed that he doesn't know what he's talking about".

Four ellipses denote a full omission of material from a sentence.  FOR EXAMPLE:  "Quack 12 thinks he pulled one over on HLB ...."

Ellipses

  • 1. When placing an ellipsis in the middle of a quotation to indicate the omission of material, use three points with spaces before and after the ellipsis. ...
  • 2. When placing an ellipsis at the end of a quotation to indicate the omission of material, use four points -- a three-point ellipsis and a period. ...

Yeah, notice how it doesn't say to use 4 ellipses in a row, dipshit.
