    Don't judge me him



  • Only with a whiskey chaser. as per my physician instructions.....



  • @voodoo Not before Breakfast. Otherwise all good.

    I recently got that in my elbow. Crippling!



  • Turns out that the exploratory heart thing today is only going to cost $70.

    Medicare and the health insurance finally fucking did something.



  • @NTA good luck today

    Tbh is just an esophageal ECG with a bit of saline in the blood stream. Nothing surgical.

    Hope it finds something relatable to migraine, ED, etc



  • Did anyone get the strap or cane at school and what did you do to "deserve" it? We had a principal that wore short stubbies, socks over his knees, a comb over and just loved dishing out the strap. I think I got it for fighting and maybe breaking the teachers pole they used to point to shit.



  • Bulldog Morrison (ex Battle of Britain fighter pilot) in Standard 3 used a barbers strop. Can't remember what for but he gave it a full swing of his arm. It hurt and swelled up enormously.

    5th Form Maths Can't remember the name of the teacher but feel a bit bad in hindsight. He had totally lost control of the class - used to foam at the corners of his mouth. Everyone was getting caned except me which wasn't a good look. So I sat at the front of the class, leaned back in the chair and started counting aloud. He asked me what I was doing and I replied that it was a maths class so I was counting the dots in the ceiling tiles.

    He didn't have the power of the old Bulldog. He did however have a nervous breakdown within a few weeks. Turns out his wife had left him and he was now a solo parent looking after a quadriplegic son who also had Downs Syndrome. Poor bastard.



  • I got my ass slapped when I was maybe 6 I think. Talking during a school mass.
    She lined all the perpetrators up during recess and gave us all a whack in turn. I vaguely remember my mates running crying to their older sisters for comfort but being the oldest myself had no such option.

    Can't imagine that these days, I'd like to think if a teacher hits your 6yo you're well within your rights to break that teachers face.



  • I got the cane at primary school for doing absolutely nothing wrong, unless you count being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Some other kids were acting up in the playground (I don't remember what they were doing) and I was nearby having a drink from the water fountain. Everyone in the area got rounded up and I was collateral damage. The principal, a nun, was a real disciplinarian.



  • I was about 6 and actually bending over to pick up one of those wooden boxes of different coloured rods. Female teacher must've decided I was insolent and smacked my arse.
    I pee'ed my self, such was the fright. Rushed to the bogs and bawled my eyes out.
    She couldn't apologise enough, but the scars remain.
    I danced a jig when she died.

    As for the cane or strap, well the threat of that worked a treat, I avoided that like the plague



  • I'm reading my boy Roald Dahl's 'Tales of Childhood' at the moment, and he talks at length and in some detail about getting the cane. That shit was outlawed when I was at school and thank fuck for that.

    yeah righto rocky

    perhaps you should ask why your hypothetical kid was such a fluffybunny that they drove a professional to completely lose their shit

    Fucking great drugs. And they found what they were looking for. Cardiologist will consult with the surgeon but a bit of minor heart surgery might be on the cards in the new year

    Ha.

    Ha ha.

    Just sitting here, watching golf on TV. Bored.



  • I only got caned at High School, fully deserved each time, actually, one time I opted for it instead of after-school detention.

    Only heard rumours the Principal had a 'strap' he used at primary school, even one of the worst kids in school apparently never got the 'strap'



  • I got strapped when I was 11. Teacher was a complete bully, complete fluffybunny actually. I was talking when I shouldn't have been apparently. I was relatively new to the school and sent to wait in the corridor. We were used to the sound of the leather stripping the inner arm off classmates and knew what was going to happen. My arm and hand looked like a cheese grater covered in blood when he finished. To this day I don't know what the sadistic prick had done to the leather.

    I did have the pleasure of meeting him again many years later (my early twenties). I was 6'5 by then and 100kg, I reminded him of the incident - he left rapidly without his takeaways. Never wanted to hit someone so much, which he obviously recognised. Typical cowardly bully.



  • somehow i never got hit at school, despite it still being a thing until i left primary school i think. I don't remember too many people who did actually.
