Morning Cup O' Joe

Time you enjoy wasting isn't wasted time.

When Applying Life-Saving Measures…

… the tempo at which you apply the chest compressions matches the tempo of two songs (according to my wife who just had a practical exam today for nursing):

  1. Another One Bites the Dust by Queen
  2. Staying Alive by The Bee-Gees

I’d prefer singing the latter in my head, but you know what?… I’ll always remember the former now.

  1. Those songs are at 120, so any Sousa march should work, too (for those of us geeks who were raised in a marching band and not the 70’s)

  2. When you sent this out on Twitter, I immediately heard “Another One Bites the Dust” in my head, and could imagine doing CPR to the beat… Thanks for the tip.
