Apparently, rumors of my demise have not been as greatly exaggerated as they should have been. Sadly, I have been holed up in my apartment for the last few weeks cramming like no other for Step 2 of the medical board exams. Well, that, and jabbing a pen in my eye and pulling it back out through my nose. As a result, I have not had time to reach into the eternal grabbag of shame known as my stream of consciousness and pull out some mildly comical and moderately depressing observation on the human condition as it relates to my self-centered life as a medical student. However, I promise that I will have a lot to say in the coming weeks, including my in-depth analysis of why interviewing for residency programs while studying for the boards is a really bad idea. In the mean-time, I thought I'd collect a few interesting articles for you all to read because it's pretty clear none of you have any lives anyways:Groopman on Experimental DrugsA Take On Apocalypto
Jews, Christians, and Values
And, finally, remember when I wrote up a post
detailing my admittedly pathetic attempt at circumcision? When I made a concerted effort to remain neutral as possible regarding this topic, focusing exclusively on my incompetence, so as not to piss off any of the extremists on both sides of the argument? Except I was bombarded
by a horde of anti-circumcision fanatics calling me a horrible person, Satan, and other such unpleasentries while suggesting that even the consideration of a itty bitty teeny weeny benefit to circumcision is undeniably wrong? Well, in response, eat shit and die, assholes
P.S. Extra points if you know which movie has the phrase that inspired the title of this post.
