    Not to thread jack but......the last time I was there was in the late 90's. But I didnt go thru the beautiful front lobby . It was either straight to the ER (from the ambulance bay) Psych Ward (I forget what floor) or to the infamous 13th floor Jail ward. You wanna talk creepy try going to those floors. But despite the creepiness, I had always heard if you ever got shot "LCMC" ER ( called it this) was the place to go if you wanted to survive the gunshot wound.
    We are the Samurai, the warrior elite who protect and serve. Armed and armored from head to toe, masters of our personal weapons and bound by Honor, Duty, Loyalty, and Honesty. We walk the long path into the places society would prefer forgotten, and chase those demons that most would run from screaming in fear. We are the Samurai.

    Yeah, sorry to hijack the thread...but it's not like the Kings are playing or anything...

    ...and as far as I'm concerned, that old county general hospital is the creepiest building in the world. I still have nightmares about the first time I was there in the early 60s visiting a sick grandmother. The last time was there in 1978 I was visiting someone in the psych ward, and that didn't help the nightmare factor at all.

    The one aspect of the building that's still mind-blowing for me is a fact it's 100% concrete construction, and if you go in the rear entrance, you can still see and feel the texture from the wood forms on the concrete surface, and trace each individual pour as they made their way up.

    Even creepier are those bas relief sculptures above the front entrance.

    Glad I'm getting my second dose Monday morning (Pfizer). They opened up the old building at LA County hospital to administer the vaccines. If you've never been inside that thing, let me tell you first hand, it's pure nightmare fertilizer. I don't believe in ghosts, but if I did, that building would be the first candidate on my list for being haunted.

    Is this the same building that they used to use for the opening credits of General Hospital? Or is that a different building?

    According to this, Roy & Bjornfot are back in practice & will probably be back in the next game. Which is what I hoped for.

    Yeah that's the same building. My first wife was a big fan of the show so I was infinitely familiar with it...and I'm sitting inside the building right now waiting for my second dose. It's just as creepy as it was the last time!
