The Administrators of the Pittsburgh VA hospital discovered there was legionella in their water supply. Rather than taking proper steps to, you know, fix that before it killed people less work to use an agent that doesn’t kill legionella to treat the water. They didn’t even bother to tell staff and patients. As a result five veterans died and sixteen more got sick. One of those killed was a WWII veteran only in for dehydration. How are the people who deliberately poisoned all those people being punished? Have they been arrested for manslaughter? Have they at least been fired? Of course not. They got huge bonuses for “doing such a good job.” Have a Great Fucking Memorial Day! There are six more honored dead who would have been alive if they hadn’t gone to the hospital to remember today.
I'm androgyne, transexual, poly, and androphilic. Nec hoc nec illud is Latin slang for bisexual, but I use it because it translates loosely as "Neither one thing nor the other." I think this is a good description of me, even though I'm not bisexual. This tumblr is neither one thing nor another also. It's random stuff I'm randomly interested in. I don't do "reblog if you believe X" posts, as I feel they are coercive to the reader and if you read my stuff you already know what I believe.
Ask me anything
I will generally answer non-troll asks.
Sometimes it’s weird for me to think that I was actually in a war. Nobody really considers the Kosovo/Bosnian conflict a war, but having been there … shit, that place was hell. What’s sad to me is that given the modern perspective of what is or is not a war, I find myself caving to this perspective and not really thinking I was a combat veteran of an actual war.
