    that makes little if any grammatical sense ... and who are the "we" you represent?

    Where did I say 'nobody helps the homeless'? I'm not asking whether she helps the homeless and I certainly haven't suggested she is "lying" about that [can you quote me if you think I have?] I am enquiring about how one can possibly lose count of how many people one has effectively brought back from the dead on the street or on the back seat of a speeding car by giving CPR. Was it a joke perhaps?
    Hi again, FMF.
    I don't think she said she brought back anyone from the dead. She said that she has administered CPR to people and that some make it and some don't. Have a nice long read all about CPR and you will find that this makes perfect sense. In order to 'bring back anyone from the dead' (your words, not hers) you need defibrillators, drugs like adrenaline and atropine and an operating theatre, ideally. CPR simply maintains blood flow, albeit at a less efficient rate than the heart, around 30 percent at best.
    Another thing: heathcare professionals will indeed forget how many patients they work with/on over a long period. Why do you suspect this is a joke? In a 30-year career as a SAR helicopter winch operator/winchman paramedic, I have forgotten how many times I've been involved in a CPR protocol. And that's not a joke. Most don't make it of course but some do, which is always surprising.
    But a word to the wise: why start an argument with someone about something you plainly know nothing about? At best it makes you look a wee bit foolish.

    Only trying to help .
    Its a bit like we in Britain saying " I like a fag now and then " fag ,being a slang word for a cigarette .
    Might sound strange to you that side of the pond, so be careful what you do with your weapon .

    It's just a turn of phrase.

    Its context was some holier-than-thou Christian philanthropy willy waving on the Spirituality Forum, and what made it seem odd was her reaction when questioned calmly and respectfully about her claim. I was not the only poster to notice her instant lash-out/evasive behaviour. I think in the setting in which the claim was made, it was not a "joke", as such, but, instead, a letting off of a bit of a head-of-self-righteous-forum-steam, and her repeated refusal to clarify her casually grandiose claim seemed to underline that. She was asked politely, and immediately played the victim card, as is her wont.

    This is exactly the kind of answer I was trying to elicit back during that peculiar conversation on the SF, except of course, it wasn't you and your career I was asking about.

    Surely the hospital would get a bit suspicious.
    Here she is turning up night after night, maybe several times a night with dead
    or gasping people in her car.
    I always thought she should get out more. I have changed my mind.
    She should get out less.

    OK, fair enough. I was probably a bit harsh with you there. But heck, there are some festering vendettas on these forums...!
    Edit: CPR on its own almost never brings anyone around. If your circulation stops for more than a few minutes without CPR, it's usually adios. As I said, prompt, high quality CPR plus immediate specialist care will occasionally do the trick.

    I think, with Suzianne, it's more a case of online disinhibition effect than it is a "vendetta".

    What does that have to do with the topic?

    I imagine that most of what gets said out there on the internet in response to the question "Ever used a gun in self-defense?" is probably affected to some degree by the online disinhibition effect.

    A person with disinhibition caused by brain injury would not have that filter. ...
