I watched the moon landing on TV. In Dhaka. I don't know whether that was live or delayed. (I was also watching challenger live. May they RIP.)

PS. I can top your bill. Multiply the number by about 6 and add the $ sign in front. Thank god for insurance. I ended up with a $30 copay. Thank god for great doctors. Not only do I have a piece of mind - I have a mind. And I am alive.

Thanks - it was the wife...just simple complaint of abdominal pains, and then boom.

We took my mom to the US a few months back after a serious car accident here in Dhaka - 3 week hospital stay in Virginia. She is doing very well now...but she almost passed out when she found out what the bill was

The professional courtesy I was shown despite being a surgeon from a completely different field was mind blowing - I was humbled by how down to earth her Primary was.

I know healthcare in the US is expensive, and not everyone has access to it(well you could run into the emergency room, and they're obliged to treat you), but you definitely get value for your money.

I got a title that's bitchin'. It's a bitchin' title. That's what that is.

CEO, MLC.

(although I liked the sound of Commissioner (it was that for a sec). I consider myself to be the CEO, and named some imaginary dude to be the Commissioner, idk Dick Jones or something. Now I wanna move up to Commissioner's position! Someday, someday. )

Not to sound insensitive and not that the state of your health wasn't extremely concerning at the time, but I still find a comment from that thread utterly hilarious. Something along the lines of "Praying for you, Dr. Z. If the doctor amongst us is sick, then what will happen to us regular patients?" Haay re Bangali...
