low pain threshold?

Dear me. My poor little girl fell on the nasty, sparse, spiky gravel at the start of our drive - a real hands and knees smash, she'd been skipping home from her friend's next door with some pringles. I heard the screaming from outside.

Holy Shit. I don't know where it comes from, this huge, long drawn out NRNRNRNRNRNRNNRNRNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANGNANGNANGNANG, followed by wailing, like a foghorn or a powerdrill, or all of them being used to kill pigs.

She saw her bloody knees and FREAKED, taking it to an even greater level of loudness, and I found myself unable to function, scrabbling in my handbag for the arnica, pausing at the first aid/remedy cupboard, paralysed, unable to think, my brain just scrambled by the awful, insane loudness of the noise.

Did I do that??
Fucking Hell!

You have me in stitches here because my DD fell and cut her two knees for the first time 4 days ago......she's 3.5 years old and like your daughter she screamed immediately but when she stopped to look at her knees and saw the blood she totally freaked. The decription of a powerdrill killing pigs is very apt.

You need think about it. Despite the emails, the overwhelming evidence showing global warming is happening hasn't changed.
"The e-mails do nothing to undermine the very strong scientific consensus . . . that tells us the Earth is warming, that warming is largely a result of human activity," Jane Lubchenco, who heads the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, told a House committee. She said that the e-mails don't cover data from NOAA and NASA, whose independent climate records show dramatic warming.
