She's a CRNA and was blown away by the medical sloppiness: No gloves when blood samples were taken, the unsanitary conditions when blood transfusions were done, and to her amazement, the episode when the Postal bus fakes a mechanical on the way to the hotel and everyone got their transfusions while the bus was parked at the side of the road. She asked how the vein puncture from a transfusion wasn't obvious to everyone. I have no idea-- in July it's too hot to wear arm warmers, makeup would smear. How did they cover up the needle tracks?

Not my idea of a date to take my girlfriend to. Also," To her amazement, the episode when the Postal bus fakes a mechanical on the way to the hotel and everyone got their transfusions while the bus was parked at the side of the road". I hope you explained to her it's a lot safer to pull over and stop in getting our transfusions than in a moving vehicle except on a bridge or in the middle of a railroad crossing.

Really nothing new, we've seen this train wreck play out over the past decade but to the casual observer the movie was a bit of a stunner. She was going on about how -7 was so bold in his declarations of never doping and what a pathological lier he was. I quoted someone here and said we should just be grateful he didn't go into politics or Wall Street.

It's a documentary so it is LA as himself.
