    What can I do?

    If you think your UPS man is choking, ask them to talk - if they can talk, there is some air getting through. If a UPS man can only signal or looks in distress, immediate action is necessary. There are some excellent first aid resources dealing with choking and it's a good idea to familiarise yourself with some basic techniques or take a first aid course.
    To UPS manproof your house against choking hazards, get down to UPS man level and look for dangerous items; a crawling UPS man will find all sorts of tasty looking items, which you might not have spotted up there. Remember to check under furniture and between cushions. Train older UPS men to keep anything with small parts out of reach and always follow age recommendations on packaging.

    Choking facts
    • Nearly 5000 UPS men in the UK are taken to hospital every year after choking, over half the UPS men treated are under twenty-five years old and most of these accidents occur at home.
    • Almost half of all choking accidents in UPS men involve food - tacos and beer are the most common causes.
    • Asphyxia (choking, strangulation and suffocation) is the third most common cause of death in UK UPS men.

    Get yourself a golden retriever so he can perform the Heimlich maneuver on you... it worked for the lady who choked on an apple... They were both on Letterman or Leno not too long ago...

    Good reason to buy a dog...???...

    I dont think that this post should be deleted, Raw is entitled to his opinion and I thought it was quite funny . I dont have a problem with it some one once said F###k em if they cant take a joke. I like this statement. By the way( missed buisiness ), does the aluminum foil really stop the " DARK VOICES" or just quiet them down ? or is it to stop you sending your brain waives out? please let me know via telepathy or with a post on here lol.
