My problem is that all things are increasingly interesting to me.
[04:40:35] <@kate> In the OR, they refer to “Perfusioners” as “Slushers”
[04:41:49] <~relope> “Perfusioner”?
[04:45:05] <@kate> The person responsible for chilling/perfusing the blood during surgery
[04:45:35] <~relope> They run the Slurpee machine.
[04:45:41] <~vai> Does the blood come with crushed ice?
[04:45:59] <~relope> Wikipedia says “perfusionist”.
[04:46:22] <~relope> And people who are unreasonably uptight about it are “perfusionistas”.
[04:46:51] <~relope> OH HO LOOK AT YOU WITH YOUR *PEDESTRIAN* HEART/LUNG MACHINE
[04:46:54] <~vai> your coffee culture amazes me.

Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls. The most massive characters are seared with scars.

A burn bag is the informal name given to a container (usually a paper bag or some other waste receptacle) that holds sensitive or classified documents which are to be destroyed by fire or pulping after a certain period of time. The most common usage of burn bags is by government institutions, in the destruction of classified materials.
Example: note the burn-bag next to Obama in this recent photograph taken during the capture of Osama Bin Laden.
