We now return to your regularly scheduled Fightlinker

Hello everyone and welcome back to ‘business as usual’ here at For those of you who were concerned, I’m not dying or anything … there’s just no way of saying “Ryan’s back at the hospital” without things sounding really bad. Basically I just had a shitload of pain over the weeekend that kept me from sleeping for like 40 hours.

According to these guys, that’s ‘normal’ (which is actually a lot more depressing to hear than “Oh, that’s not right, let’s fix this”), but at this point I no longer really trust these quacks so I’ll be back in on Wednesday for another wonderful visual journey up my rectal cavity. I don’t think there should be any more delays with content this week, since as long as I know I’m going in I can do some posts in advance.

By the way, Low Blow will be recorded tonight and released tommorow morning. And as always, we appreciate you sticking around through the inconsistant posting.

    Now what do you think about your free Canadian health care?

  • fightlinker

    It’s free, I never have to wait longer than an hour to see someone. I’m pretty annoyed that they allow people who can’t speak english to work as doctors, and overall the fuckers are extremely stringent about pain killers … I have a feeling they think i’m a junkie who’s just trying to score some meds because they WON’T give me anything other than creams for the pain, which really do very little at all.

    Overall though, the care ain’t bad, ain’t great. Considering the circumstances, there’s not a heck of a lot they can do before scheduling new tests, which is now done

    Welcome back.

  • Kalak

    I really hope you get well soon. Best wishes.

  • dulljake

    you don’t know how good a health care system is until you loose it

  • Fightlinker is Wrong

    I must say Fightlinker I’m glad you are not dead. Only because it would be really awkward if I kept making comics and you weren’t reading them and I also wanna train up and kick your ass some day.

  • Jemaleddin

    @dulljake: I’ve been trying to loosen my health care system for years. :-)

    @Fightlinker: the nice thing about this site is that instead of the writer being up every fighter’s ass, or the commenters being up the writer’s ass, there’s an assigned medical crew to do the spelunking.

    Yay, Ryan’s not dead!

    “I’m pretty annoyed that they allow people who can’t speak english to work as doctors.”

    Srsly? How the hell? I might burst into an immigrant rant here, but basically: I have uncles who were heart surgeons in the motherland (and can speak English, surprise!) but aren’t recognized doctors in Canadia unless they go to med school again.

  • fightlinker

    yeah i live in Quebec aka Frenchland. Good luck trying to get a job if you can’t speak french but apparently people can be your doctor without having to know how to speak even the slightest bit of english :-p

  • frickshun

    What is actually wrong w/your ass? My buddy had colitis. It is soooo easy to make fun of him that I got bored. What’s ailing you??

  • Gong

    Oh. That’s true. I keep forgetting you’re in Quebec. Quick question about the podcast tonight: can we listen to it live? How?

    I heard on the radio that Kashmir is the most popular song to play when they’re shoving the cam up your anus. Is that true?

  • Captain

    I don’t think any of us degenerates who visit this site are overly worried about inconsistent posting. Just don’t turn into a douche and you’ll be all right by us. Good luck with your butthole.

  • Big D D

    Glad you are back! I hope you got a 2nd opinion, never trust one person to care for you- Docs aren’t all the same.

  • Matt (but I signed up as Mr. Unbelievable Pants)

    Holy crap, dude… back already and like 8 quality posts done… you’re a machine! With a faulty anus!
