Primus, volens et potens

Today I taught an EMS endorsement class to a group of First Responders.

I used a recording of Darth Vader to explain respirations, a naked picture of Vin Diesel for skin assessment and a clip from Psycho as an example of a blood-letting device for the glucometry section.

I knew someday all that time I spent watching movies would come in handy.

*Primus, volens et potens
First, willing and able.
Motto of First Responders.


  1. Checking every inch of Vin Diesel's skin for...anything...sounds like the job for me. Can I take your class? What? He was wearing shorts? Drat.

    Seriously, though, I think you chose great stuff for teaching material. Sure beats the heck out of yet another textbook.

  2. Actually, he's not wearing shorts.



Glad to hear from you!
