We are prepared for any emergency that could come our way

My work hired a guy to give some of us new trainees a seven-hour session in First Aid. I don't remember the class very well, but here are some of the highlights:

- teaching us the recovery position. He showed us how to do it once or twice, then we all had to practice on each other. I hadn't remembered how to do it but no one responded to my asking for clarification

- also zipped through learning how to tie a makeshift sling, showing us only once. I wouldn't be able to repeat that if my life depended on it

- showed us the Heimlich maneuver once, didn't seem too concerned if nobody could find the correct place for their fist or which motions to make during practice

So that entire thing took up about five minutes of our time total. What about the other 6 hours and 55 minutes?

They consisted of him making us watch an Achmed the Dead Terrorist sketch, which took a long time to load, on YouTube, and him telling us the dangers of getting fat (not only could we have a heart attack, but it would be difficult for fire fighters to get us out of burning buildings).

I feel I'm prepared for any situation after that!
