Latest P.T. Barnum reference, today's news

Post by bec on Fri Aug 07, 2009 10:31 am

12 bonus points and a cookie to the poster who can pick out the Barnum reference in today's AP article. I have to run off to work, but I'll be back tonight to hand out points and cookies.

Happy hunting (don't worry, it's canned, lol!)

The multiple sedatives. Barnum requested multiple sedatives/doses for hours before his death and his doctor/s gave him multiple doses over a period of time?
Multiple sedatives plus propofol.
I can't find anything else in that article atm, feeling slightly stupid.

*Edit*
Benzodiazepines - work to calm patients before surgery. They don't actually work as an anesthetic, they just intensify the anesthetic itself.

Nope, still feeling stupid after multiple readings of the article link. I'll wait and see if anyone else has managed to see what I haven't.

The irony is getting so thick you need a steak knife to cut through it at this point.

So, APOM, chocolate chip or peanut butter?

Yes, I picked out the similarities between Barnum and MJ's death on my post on MJHD forum 'the death bed scene and PT Barnum'.

Also the similarity between the way he 'died' and that of Barnum:

One of the requests made by Mr. Barnum was that, when all hope was gone, sedatives which would make his passage to the next world more peaceful be administered. About 4 o'clock this morning the veteran showman spoke his last words. He was asked if he wished a drink of water, and answered, “Yes.” Soon after he sank into a lethargy. It was difficult to arouse him from this state, and on opening his eyes a faint gleam of recognition alone indicated that he had knowledge of his surroundings, or knew those about him. All day long Mr. Barnum lay in a semi-unconscious state. About 10 o'clock the first sedative was administered, and repeated several times during the day.



Far too similar to be ignored I think!

Bec - Chocolate chip of course lol tongue Very Happy
Apologies for not replying sooner, I hate time zone differences
I agree with you though, it just feels like the news/media is giving us everything that we're asking for. We question something and BAM! it's answered in the news as 'Exclusive! Breaking News'
Don't they realise we'll pick everything they say apart? We're not stupid. Bring on the next news item! bounce lol!
