    So sorry to hear about your mom. Glad to hear that you are planning on being an EMT. I did it for twelve years before I became a nurse, and it can be quite rewarding work.

    I'm guessing this was somehow very important to him.

    Well, it was my first post in the alley, and it was ment to be a very political and serious post.
    Then it happened - I would have never thought it could happen here on SP, my post got deleted (or moved from the forum it belongs to, what's the difference ?)

    I had to get this message out, so I posted it again. Now it's locked :mad:

    Should I make a third one ? Or just give up ? Or what ?

    Your original thread is here and it is still open. As you can see it was not taken very seriously, and even your opening post indicated that you were just trying to get the word out and didn't care whether anyone believed it or not.

    If you really wish to have serious discussion about something, you should not just post a link and say you don't care what anyone believes. You should post what you think and use your source as corroboration for your belief and ask what people think in return.

    And just FYI, threads get moved here all the time. But instead of cluttering the board with redirects, we move them completely, and send a move notification via mail to the person who's opened the thread. It's no big deal (and no harm done), as I said, it happens all the time.

    But once we move a thread, of course we don't expect the person who's made it to post a duplicate in the inappropriate forum again. That would negate the whole point of moving it.

    Thank you all, tough time but thanks to my religious beliefs I'm doing fine.

    @Brallrock: Yes I've heard it is quite rewarding, I just wish the work schedule wasn't as long.

    As of Monday, I shall be going home for the summer, and thus, shall be offline until September. I thought that I should post this now, given that I'll be away pretty much all weekend, so I'm not sure if I'll get the chance to post beforehand.

    I'm off to Germany in a few hours, for work-related activities sadly. I'll be in Bremen for the whole week, and will probably not have BoM access there (I'll probably have internet access, but it's not the same :) )

    @WotW: Enjoy your summer vacation.

    @Eldular: Very sorry to hear about your mother. I wish you both all the best.

    Sorry to hear that Eldular. I lost my mother some years ago to breast cancer and it was tough supporting a family on minimum wage, but you will get through it.

    I'm off to Europe ladies and gentlemen! For 2 weeks, you will not hear from me, as I will be tearing up Italy (Rome, Sicilly), and Barcelona!

    My flight leaves at 5:30, but I have to take off now to meet people, etc.


    Don't spam too much without me (how about me only missing 2 RBPs ;) ), and keep those alleys short enough so I don't have to read the books you guys write when I get back :D .

    I'll see you in 2 (more or less) weeks :D
