Your car does not necessarily feel pain. A patient with a blood pressure monitor will seek medical review if his BP is too high, but he will not necessarily feel pain; maybe he will feel a mild anxiety, maybe he will feel annoyance at having to go to the doctor, maybe he won't feel anything at all despite understanding the implications. -- Stathis Papaioannou -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
