How you can tell you've been watching too much Discovery Health Channel
There's a commercial on the previously mentioned local Air America station; quite a normal little commercial with a guy who's just died in the emergency room fretting from the afterlife about what a tool he was in not getting life insurance for his family.
The commercial starts out with a fairly strong heartbeat sound "bee-beep! bee-beep!" which immediately goes to a steady tone and a woman announcing "Time of death, 2:56 pm".
Obviously I have seen too many episodes of "Paramedics" and "Trauma: Life in the E.R." since at this point in the commercial I am given to start shouting at the radio about how quickly they call the code on the poor sap and how they don't even try to re-start his heart, f'crissakes! At least give the S.O.B. some adrenaline or something! What is this, some new money-saving HMO policy? I hope I never end up in THAT E.R....
This indicates something, but I'm not sure what.
