Re: What is this ?

I'm just here, browsing around some threads, searching here and there for info and come upon this one.

Then, after looking through this thread, a great quote from Bugs Bunny came to mind:
"I knew I shoulda taken that left turn at Albuquerque."

Bugs Bunny Albuquerque - YouTube

I feel like I stumbled on some deep dark room where there's all kinds of weird voodoo around.

Friend of mine's dad was a doctor.. he complained that the cost of a stethoscope that he had to buy through a medical supply was 2x that from a vet supply.... and it was the SAME if one compared them.
