Heres my fact of the day.

Hypotrophiccardiomyopathy is a condition which can be genetic or contracted. In its contracted from it is caused by high blood pressure or other strains related to stress and/or weight problems. In its genetic form its effect can be seen under the microscope and its contracted form it is seen immediately in the form of mass. It is a common heart defect and few people even know they have it.

Hypotrophiccardiomyopathy literally means big heart muscle. It is not good for your heart muscle to be big since then it requires more work to get the blood out of the heart and around the body. The heart works harder to pump the bood and grows even bigger. So the vicious cycle continues.

Damn medical documentaries

Half ideas,half quality, half a million pound law suit!

^ No it doesn't. I think you've got your terms mixed up there.

In medical terminology hypo- refers to values that are below normal range while hyper- refers to values that are above normal range. And, that, is my fact for the day. tongue.gif

And it is two words (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy) - hypertrophy meaning excessive growth and cardiomyopathy a disease of the heart muscle with an uncertain cause. It is one of the four types of cardiomyopathy [Hypertrophic (HCM), Dilated (DCM), Restrictive (RCM) and Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular (ARVC)].

This is true, one of my relatives has RCM

Today i learnt that the majority of people who emigrated to the US between 1st Jan 1892 and 1954 went through the immigration office on Ellis Island. And, around 5000 immigrants were processed every day and only around 2% were rejected entry

I found out all this from a higher gaelic paper! smile.gif

I thought you weren't coming back here, man? Oh well, it was good while it lasted. dry.gif

Anyway, I think if you mentioned that, it may be because you have a problem with bed-wetting. Perhaps a visit to the doctors is in order for you.

The scottish bank note is actually legal tender in England and if someone refuses to take your money, legally they are cancelling your debt to them so you don't have to pay.

Said by my economics lecturer today who has done that and the restaurant owner phoned the police and there was nothing they could do.
