Newbie here

Post by 411 »

I’m 72 years old, and retired 6 yrs now: Physician Assistant since 1976, LPN before that and combat medic before that.

I’m especially interested in ethics/morals and mind/consciousness, but often look into other areas as well.

I’m generally polite and rarely swear. My questions sincerely reflect my curiosity about other members’ posts and are never intended as some sort of attack.

I like to see accurate spelling and correct grammar in the Queen’s English or American English, yet I recognize that English isn’t everyone’s primary language.

Welcome 411. I googled 411 because it sounded like it's probably a well known phone number somewhere. And sure enough it turns out that it is, and that it's also used as a slang word for gossip or chat. So I've learnt something just from your name.

As you are likely aware from your medical experience it is totally possible to rip someone to shreds while being polite and never using swear words. I assume you'll do great here. Welcome.
