Learn to love the literature, this was just published......these people know the story. Although limited to LMWH, these agents probably have the most data compared to other classes.

lmao...I told them months ago where I work that capping the dose at 150mg for enoxaparin made no sense...I'm bringing this **** it and flopping it on the central pharmacy table. Thanks, Pria...

what you doing now fool... PGY3? :smuggrin:
Did you get a job at your mother institution?

You should note that I am now listed as a Pharmist.......

I have a job, thinking about an FDA funded PhD program though. Yikes.

Jesus H Christ. I figure I'll be going into retirement by the time you start your career.


Hahahahahaha, I know.

Let me see if my VPN feels like working right now. If it does, I will get it to you.

I'm reporting your ass to the authorities for illegally distributing copy righted material. I think it has a fine up to $200,000.

:smuggrin: :smuggrin: :smuggrin:

he gave me his "golf lesson" report... but I don't know about run for my money. But I believe you about the hotdog thing. But at least you didn't say "bbq" hot dog ..instead said "grill"

Grill is something you do to food. BBQ is something you eat. :smuggrin:


Oh NOOOOOOO miss Gly.

BBQ is a method of slow cooking meat using low heat and choice smoke from different types of hard wood based on flavor you desire and the type of meat.. It is a religious term not to be confused with any other..

Well I've only been here 4 weeks (as of today). I guess I haven't picked up all the hill jack (yes, someone used that term at dinner last night) terminology yet. 48 weeks left!

One word is all you need to know to own any BBQ argument:

MEMPHIS

(It's the ONLY thing positive going for that city.)

beef vs. pork is just that...preference.

We don't do much pork here.. Beef, it's good food. But St. Louis and Memphis folks can fight it out over who has better pork.. I have no hog in that fight.

But you can't touch our beef.

Nope. Central.

You gotta go down to below Beckley...or maybe further West...

The joints down there are weird as hell. The place will smell like a mixture of motor oil and wet dog...but I'll be damned if they don't cook some good ribs...

Crawfish season's over... dork!

I'm sure you could find some boiled crawfish, but they'll be too hard to peel.

There's always seafood dishes and seafood boudin, too.



Anyway... off to the waterpark. :) I can't wait! :D
