Back in the day, I posted a video by a wacky group of harmonizing nurse anesthetists going by the name of the Laryngospasms.  Here is another of their fabulous repertoir, lamenting the pain of coming out of anesthesia.  Enjoy, as they report to patients everywhere, that waking up is hard to do.

People of my generation may remember Schoolhouse Rock, a collection of campy educational cartoon shorts from everything from history to government to math, to grammar and English.  Here is a reworking of the greatest of them all from my completely unbiased point of view, reviewing the greatest of the body’s organ systems, the Nervous system.

Okay, so its a bit of a stretch to call this music, but still a very educational run down of the hypothalamus.  Enjoy and then let your ears rest a bit.  For those with fine music sensibilities, my profound apologies, I can’t help it, I Liked it!

They Might be Giants is a very unique Rock duo with a flair for the educational.  One of my favorites as a teen, my kids now love them too.  Here is their catchy rundown of the many functions of the juice flowing through our veins.  Enjoy!

I found this wonderful live action video of white blood cells at work, showing the neutrophil, one of the most common  cells in the immune system, (though if I’m not mistaken it looks more like a macrophage, but I’m no pathologist) , on the prowl hunting down the bacteria, set brilliantly to music, Perfect for Biology geeks everywhere.  Enjoy!

     It is a strange thing to sit at the end of a very long, very intense road that is training to be a physician and take a look back on the winding, arduous road I took to get here.  I am now endeavoring to prove I have done all of it by gathering documentation of the past 15 years of my life in excruciating detail.  With just one final test to go, my neurology boards,  I have become an absolute master at the ubiquitous modern knowledge measuring tool, namely I can fill bubbles on a scan sheet in completely, inside the lines with a no. 2 pencil, choosing only one answer and always guessing if I don’t know.

   It is amazing how standardized tests have become the mainstay of education these days.  Colleges and medical schools use them to differentiate students, nations use them to compare their system to other nations, and No Child Left Behind uses them to set minimum standards for funding our schools.   We use them to prove we can drive in most states.  We use them to measure IQ’s all over the internet.  We use them to poll current public opinion.  We use them to test marketing for the latest breakfast sandwich.  Mensa and the triple nine society determine your eligibility for geniushood by these tests.  Everyone can be boiled down to how they fill out these neat little bubbles.  Read the rest of this entry »

In continuing the theme of dignity, disability, and respect from my last post I found this incredible video which makes my point ever so eloquently, so prop your feet up, sit back, and prepare to free your mind for the predicament that is the Euthenasia Blues.  Enjoy

And we’re back.  With this blog now in its second year, I am resetting the counter for points of interest, my irregularly irregular romp through all things mind, body and soul on the internets.  I waited on this oune until the weekend when I have usually put these out and as such had too many great posts to include.  Sheesh, slow down bloggers.  If only my muse were so kind.  Anyway, without further delay, I present the best I could find- Read the rest of this entry »
