This semester I'm taking a CPR, First Aid, and Sport Safety class.  Today I learned how to do compressions on both adults and children (on practice dummies).  Because it was hard for a lot of us to get the rhythm of doing 100 compressions/minute our professor gave us a way to time it right.  You just compress to the beat of "Stayin Alive" by the BeeGees which is 103beats/min. Awesome right?  Then he told us that there was a song that had 100beats/min, but it wasn't very appropriate in that setting. Any guesses as to what it is?  No?  Well, I think people would think you were trying to kill the person instead of helping them if you were doing compressions while singing:
"Bada bump bump bump....Another one bites the dust!"


Awesome professor! And I will soon be CPR/First Aid Certified!

Check out what I made for dinner tonight over on Joy in the Kitchen!
