Today I witnessed a man wearing a white dress get out of his red Audi, blocking the road for all traffic to insult a flagman at a roadworks site. He was shouting at this poor guy (35-40), "I'll fuck you up laaitie".

What a douche.
are you trying to tell us you found jesus ?

What happened? Old ticker?
very long story, but the shortest version.
on a wednesday night (a few months back) had severe chest pain and was literally paralysed in bed.
called a neighbor doctor - blood presurre was 228/124, heart rate was 106. he wanted me in hospital that night - instead i went to my gp on the friday. ecg showed recent heart attack and she wanted me to get to hospital.
i told her i'd go on the monday, as it was pointless lying in bed all weekend until the specialists returned to work on monday.
monday morning at around 4am i have a repeat of wednesday, paramedics arrive - they do another ecg, again another heart attack - ambulance arrives and off we go.

in the er i'm connected to an ecg, but nurse is puzzled - the declares the machine to be faulty and gets another. rinse & repeat.
she realises it's not the equipment that is faulty, but the patient.
off she dashes and arrives back shoving 2 tablets into my mouth. "chew and swallow" is all she says.
a doctor comes rushing in with a syringe, the size scared the bejesus out of me.
without a word, he rips my shirt up and stabs me in the stomach with the assegai he was wielding.
"we are going straight to theatre" he announces.
turns out i was midway thru a really bad heart attack while connected to the ecg- the injection was to stall cardiac arrest .
so this is heart attach number 4 in 5 days, each worse than the previous.

i have a valve replacement done + stent #2.
in icu i develop bronchial pneumonia - after 2 days my oxygen saturation is down to 74.
a decision is made to put me on a ventilator for a week to 10 days - but i simply refused to wake up again.
lots of tests and scans, everything is good, but im not waking up (this is a common thing - we wake up wnen we are ready).
10 weeks later i emerge from my slumber - as tho nothing happened. it was like i went to sleep one night & woke up again the next morning - i had no sense of loss of time, never suffered the very dreaded icu delirium most people do when under induced coma.

got discharged a week later.
spent 10 days in the maldives (call it rest and recuperation)
then went off to hong kong, cyprus & london (dealing with my mother's deceased estate)

i bid on the freddie mercury auction in london (via proxy) - wanted to bring back the gold records awarded for south africa.
partnered with multichoice - ownership was to go into some form of public trust or museum - multichoice would have right of possession for display purposes. we were to contribute 50/50 to the purchase price. they baled out at 4000 quid !
its a pity, would have been nice to bring them home.

Wow that’s hectic, glad you made it.

So you can see a heart attack on an ECG?

seems a couple of ppl at mybb thought i had dropped dead - got mail from someone.

truth is, after the hospital fiasco i had little inclination to return, place was becoming more toxic than chernobyl.
amazed i have not been banned - i became increasingly confrontational, abrasive, hostile, obstreperous & cantankerous with certain ppl as each day passed

its all self inflicted.
im fully aware of the really bad heart history in my family - but ignored.
despite have a stent etc done previously, i still chose to ignore advice.
both my neighbor doctor & gp wanted me in hospital the moment each saw me - as usual, i ignored !

so now for the rest of my days, i feast on a smorgasbord of pharmaceuticals, in the morning and again at night.
there is a price to pay for stupidity !

I’m already on two chronic pills a day for cholesterol and hypertension.

Also currently peaking in weight at my new record of 114kg. Starting a diet on Monday. Took four months last time in early 2021 to lose 20kg, so here we go again…

So last night had the potential to be one of the most embarrassing of my life.
a chicken comes over, things play out as usual.

but suddenly i'm getting whatsapp messages, to i put the phone into flight mode.
a while later i take it out of flight mode, but now there are and additional 11 new messages, nonsensical messages from ppl like :
"what is this?"
"grant, i cant hear anything"
"good morning ??"

i take a look and see all the messages are in response to 2 voice notes they received.
there are 2 sent voice notes from me one is only 1 second, so nothing there - the 2nd is 18 seconds long.
so i take a listen - the voice note is primarily background noise, with the last couple of seconds having the sound of a woman moaning.

transpires the chicken was showing me something on pornhub - featuring a screamer !
at the same time i was stretching to reach my phone, and somehow opened whatsapp, inadvertently recorded 2 voice notes - and to top it all, send the voice notes to 42 ppl on a bantry bay residents broadcast group !

needless to say ppl were expecting some form of information about the voice note.
in a desperate attempt to cling on to what remains of my dignity, i had to resort to a little deception - blaming Pulp Fiction for the "moaner", then quickly delete the voice notes to try exersise some damage control.

Damn @Grant glad you are good.
Stop being like the idiots you argue with on myBB and take advice from actual professionals!

real pitty about the Gold records on the Freddy auction.
and the pulp fiction movie is a fantastic cover to the sounds, popular enough that people will know it. well done.
