More like 68.2 kg. Tongue

I blame my school for teaching me that 1kg equals 2 pounds. Though the difference of roughly 7kg doesn't make the story any more credible.

Did a lawsuit ensue? If not, why not?

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Good question. I pursued it with several lawyers.

1) My then Doctor had his hospital privileges revoked.
2) The hospital waived all fees including the 2 extra weeks I had to stay with the full attention of their infectious disease specialists treating the resultant peritonitis with state-of-the-art antibiotics.
3) I had plenty of sick leave available so I didn't experience a disruption in income.
4) Lawyers told me only damages I could really expect was for pain and suffering and I was back to work a month later so it didn't really warrant their investment.
5) I was grateful to the surgeon who saved my fucking sorry ass even though it was complicated by the fact that his incompetent colleague ordered a fucking barium exam on a guy with a burst appendix an hour before he had to operate.

Silly Bullshiddy, that's not what Hendrix was talking about. ... Not even close.





Not necessarily stoned, but beautiful...

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

RE: Your own "light at the end of the tunnel" experiences.
All of my seizures were heinous experiences to put it lightly when my consciousness was stable enough to only withhold my sight and my ability to breathe from me. I once suffered one by my dying grandmother hours before she died and to this day my sister proclaims it to be god's wrath against me for defecting from faith. I had a seizure driving once, not a shred of memory of it is retained however. But no there was no light in any of these experiences because I focused more on reacquiring my breathing ability with backward facing eyes and distorted vocals. Other than my last suicide attempt I have not had the displeasure of such experiences.

Leviticus does not justify stupidity, but it is more than enough to define corruption of the human mind.
