(I'v seen documentaries about police training, according to that they ARE trying to change that. They even pose a noob next to an "abusive cop" pretending to abuse and hit a suspect, the noob was supposed to stop the senior officer.)

1) In Germany, you are trained to not shoot if not absolutely necessary. If you could take cover, you may not shoot at all.

Since 1952, 2364 shots were fired and 476 people were killed. (Wikipedia)

2) Shooting into the chest "in order to not hit arteries" is only cynical.

3) daegog, If you are prepared to possibly need to shoot, if you aim at the limbs in the first place, you can shoot there.

a) You can believe in Crom the God of Iron and Swords, but Crom is not a god like Elohim. 
-or-
b) God is every god, but not every god is God. You should not deal with mere fragments and reflections of his light, they only lead astray.

Possibly both, depending on the god you're talking about.

AFAIK, science says by collecting the plastics from the ocean, you waste too much fuel, thereby creating more pollution than you clean up.

Catching plastic where it's cheap to catch might be a smart idea ... but only as long as there aren't many boats on the dirty rivers. I don't need to say: There are.

What I care about is the micro-plastic in "my" local river, because it binds poisons in the sediments and the local fish will eat that together with the plankton. I can't help the Chinese but I can avoid local pollution.

captkangaroo They don't take last year's sample, but it's still a guessing game. They are good at it, but far from perfect.

I'm not a doctor but I read a lot:

1) Since there are many strains of flu, you can get the wrong shot. Delivering the right shot is a guessing game, and e.g. in the H1N1 year, there were two kinds of flu competing. (That's why people freaked out about them possibly combining and flu shots were recommended. Fortunately they didn't know the fusion moves and the pig flu turned out to be the lesser of the two strains.)

2) if it's not a passive shot, you'll have the virus you caught _and_ a little bit extra from the shot. I don't see how you can expect having a lesser flu if a shot and catching a life strain coincides, but I guess you were doomed anyway. (Therefore having a bad flu after a shot it's a valid observation.)

Therefore and again my ¢¢:
1) you should get a shot if you're one of the people dealing with many other people or if you have low health. For other people, especially if if you can stay at home, you can skip it.
2) you should get your shot before being infected … weeks before being infected. If you wait for the season to start, you're too late.
3) even then, you may get a different flu. That's life.
4) See toetagmodel2.

5) and BTW and not about flu:  Doctors should ask their clients weather or not they refreshed their vaccinations. Most people don't and are unaware of not having an effective vaccination while complaining about other people not having a vaccination.
6) Also: If you want everybody to vaccinate, make it mandatory by law instead of pretending it's a free choice and then punishing those who didn't.

woodyville06 So Obama was right to stop this, and if Trump would not just drop the law, but allowed redistribution among staff only, he'd improve the law ... but I guess he'll just drop it and the owners will be free to take a share again?

5cats Exactly that's the common misconception, socialism is about sharing wealth and caring for the people, not about obeying rules. Otherwise it's just a wrongly-placed label.

What was the pre-Obama-regulation? Did the owner get a share?

Anyway, cooking a good meal is part of good service, so the kitchen staff should get their share. Also if you have to work at idle hours, your service can be as good as it may be, your tips will be low. Therefore sharing tips isn't bad.
