    There you go. Fucking the thread up.

    I'm trying to encourage interaction because I'm a soft, fluffy thing, so please mention a person who could help you? (Not me)

    How old is your plant? Sometimes young plants can't tolerate too much sunlight. You may have to move it to the shade daily. Otherwise, if it's golden oregano, the internet says that's the only type of oregano that prefers indirect sun and will die in full sun.
    It's about 1 to 1.5 years old. The seed packet said "Greek Oregano." The patio is shady, but it's pretty warm and dry outside.

    Such a fickle plant. I had to try multiple times to get the seedlings to stay alive. I've nearly killed the adult plant too, because it has to be watered so often. It seems a bit happier now that it's inside and not drying out so much.

    The internet says that Greek Oregano likes warm, sunny, and dry climates, which you think would be perfect for Arizona.

    I've not heard of this, but I will say that if someone was to do cpr on me, I would prefer compression only cpr because it would almost double my chances of survival.

    http://www.webmd.com/heart-disease/n...s-more-lives#1

    The point of chest compressions is to squeeze the heart and chest. You should ideally do compressions at a rate of about 120 per minute, and if you decide not to do compression only cpr, give 2 breaths every 30 compressions, maintaining an overall rate of 100 compressions per minute...which is a really fast pace.

    Important to remember.... The compressions are more important than the breathing.

    Compressions work for breathing because the way you breathe is by creating negative pressure in your chest cavity to inhale and positive to exhale. Chest compressions accomplish this in addition to accomplishing blood circulation. The heart has one way valves in it, so compressing it can pump blood when there is no heartbeat. You squeeze the heart pushing blood out. Then when the heart is released it can only draw in new blood from the correct direction. People with heart murmurs don't benefit as much from cpr because there is valve slippage.

    Rescue bagging is preferable to rescue breathing as the o2 concentration of a human exhalation is relatively low and the co2 is relatively high....which may cause the opposite of the desired diffusive effect inside the lung.

    If you include rescue breathing, 3 person cpr teams are preferable. One to do the breathing every 30 compressions, and 2 to alternate compressions as maintaining a rate of 2 compressions per second is extremely tiring and because moving from compression to breathing and back again wastes valuable compression time.

    Never attempt rescue breathing and compressions at the same time...or in other words, always pause compression before doing rescue breathing. (because you could severely damage the lungs of the patient if you try to inflate their chest cavity while squeezing it.)

    The physics of cpr requires alternating negative and positive pressure in the thoracic cavity in order to achieve the movement of air into and out of the lungs and blood through the heart. Any technique that sacrifices achieving that pressure for speed is not a good one.

    gross. I guess I'll to it too in May: you know- to fit in.
    This just in: I'm accepting all friend requests too unless you're a fricken jerk and I can't stand your existence and inane drivel. If that's the case, then I'll accept your friend request so I can keep an eye on your ass unless you don't hold any interest for me; then only the threat of keeping my eye on you stands. feces
