Okay, so I posted this photo last year. But most of you weren’t around last year; laziness is the fall-back position today anyway, so what the hell. It’s still funny, if, um, vulgar.
I also figured it was a day for links: looking back over the past few weeks, there’s been a lot of substantial writing. In short: tired brain. So without further ado:
- Do dogs enjoy dressing up for Hallowe’en? Short answer, no: “To put raiments on a dog is to blithely ignore his essential dogness.”
- Updated version of the Monster Mash, for the emergency department.
- “Findings shared with Nursing Times reveal that members of the public, who were interviewed in 81 research sessions, commonly described nurses as overworked, underpaid, patient, stoic, put upon, unambitious and passive.”
- Free medical journals online.
- Art helping physicians to relate to the human condition. Works for nurses too. Which is why, also, I post poetry here.
- U. S. life expectancy declines, and the convoluted American health care system is to blame. Reminds one, disturbingly, of the decline in life expectancy in a former superpower.
- Heparin possibly contaminated; also contains the fun fact of the day, the principal source of the drug.
- A useful idea. Would this model works in Canada?
- Climate change evidence concisely put.
- Yet another reason to be cheerful. Why do I think our descendants (if, in fact, we have any) will view our stupidity with the same distaste, shame and smugness (if truth be known) we view the Inquisition, burning at the stake, the Thirty Years War, the slave trade in the 17th, 18th and 19th Centuries, or the Opium War?
- Good thing I like 27 of them.
