How good are you?

If you are looking for the "How good are you at spotting differences" post - I placed it into hibernation. It appears that several people were concerned about the effect the surprise had on their hearts, which of course, being a paramedic, I can totally understand. One of the questions I routinely ask patients with chest pain is, "Did anything unusual happen today? Are you under any type of stress right now?" Can you imagine if they answered,"Yes. I got the daylights scared out of me by visiting a Catholic blog where a paramedic played a practical joke on her readers, and this big, hairy bogeyman jumped out at me from the screen and sent me into atrial fibrillation."

It was a fun prank, posted in good humour, and for all of you who enjoyed it, that was my only intention. For those who got a little frightened, I apologize. I've put the bogeyman to bed.

By the way, I found him over at Catholic Answers.
