Just like so many of the articles in the Reg, the reporter hasn't bothered to proofread their article before submitting it - as I read the articles, I find there are several typos in each, often obviously from the use of a spellchecker, but often from the simple use of the wrong word, as well as missing or poor punctuation. The articles are great - the standards of Use of English shoddy. £60? A glaringly inappropriate figure in this context. Sad, really. And the misuse of Bespoke as a verb? Even sadder.
Two points you've all forgotten...first (though surely coincidentally) the date of the disaster, when it kicked off, was Hitler's Birthday and the second, knowing those hipsters at the banks, the date was 20/4...or to Americanise it, 4/20...National Marijuana day...or am I just being ultra-paranoid?
At my workplace (in a busy operating theatre suite in the NHS) we have to use a new form which is useful in that it helps protect patient safety (right person, right operation, all that stuff that the patients like to hear) called a WHO form (as it's a World Health Organisation product, to be used in all theatres all over the world) and among its many sensible questions is the one that asks the surgeon if there are likely to be any unexpected events during the procedure.
I have the greatest respect for said surgeons (even though I work in anaesthetics and am aware of the real meaning of the blood-brain interface - the blood's over there, the brain is over here) but this question taxes even their immense intellects (well, maybe not that immense in orthopaedics...)
