    Some might call that healing? But some might call Rat a heel.

    Finally Rat admits reality – he’s the thorn who is the pain in the a$$ to people

    Man that is like someone being a real **** to their neighbor and then tell them its actually a sign of affection so they can forget about who the president is or about the covid or any other horrible thing that is jamming your life up…….

    That’s like calling cutting “difficult.” Consider it axiomatic that a #$%^ (like Rat) will not feel badly for being a #$%^.

    You’re a pain that potentially carries the plague, Rat!

    Acupuncture, done correctly, does not hurt.

    But acupuncture doesn’t involve pain. Bee venom therapy would have been a better analogy.

    Like a splinter, or maybe a 3 week cold. Too mild to stop you, but too annoying to forget. You found your niche rat.

    That is like my being a ‘bad’ example. Someone has to be a good at it so parents can point to me and tell their children “You don’t what to be like him”.

    Rat is waxing philosophical these days. Must be he has plenty of time to reflect on Life and All That.

    Stick a needle in Goat and get him to become more alert….

    A fairly common saying (in various forms) among clinicians: One thing about your troubles is that they take focus off of your problems.
