    IANative: Indeed, when you grab Brent (or he grabs you), it feels like liquid unobtanium wrapped in rawhide... whereas Greg is just solid muscle wrapped in hate, seasoned w/ snuff and a little lead.

    BTW, if you're from California, might you be related to a Marine aviator from Oakdale named John Valenzuela?

    Welcome!

    BTW, the last cert is missing something. NREMT is the certifying organization that handles EMS certs, you are either Emergency medical responder, EMT-b, Advanced EMT, or Paramedic. NREMT is just the org.

    Not being a jerk, just making sure he gets credit for his certification.

    That's great and all, but one question: Why are you wearing gloves to eat lunch?
    Peace through Strength!
