I learned how little I care when my family leaves the house for 6 hours without telling me where they're going. Also, how much the bottom of my hand hurts from using the mouse and the keyboard all day.

I learned that the criminals in Congress get free healthcare for life while they whine about Obama trying to provide for those who can't afford it.

TIL that the emergency department likes to make all their referrals to the medical registrar approximately half an hour before the registrar is due to end his shift. Why? They have a strange aversion to speaking directly to the consultant, despite the fact my consultant is a lot easier to refer to than I am. Just because I'm nice doesn't mean I'm not going to ask you a million questions and then possibly decline your referral... my consultant just lets everything through xD

Today I learned that there's a federal subject of Russia called the Republic of Dagestan. I had to look it up to see if it was a new separate country, but it turned out not to be, which is probably why I've never heard of it.

Oh? Where did you acquire such a controversial bit of knowledge?

Today I learned how hot hot mustard really is. I ordered a sandwich that came with honey mustard, but they accidentally put hot mustard on it. I could literally feel the burn all throughout my face.

I still ate the whole sandwich.

What makes you think everything has been planned since the dawn of time?

Today I learned that when my toenails grow out sharp, i should cut the sharp bits off before I smash my foot into someone and get blood on my toenails. I also learned that if I fall asleep on the bus near the sixth graders, they will attempt to draw on my face.

Today I learnt that thalidomide can be used to treat multiple myeloma... but it comes with cumulative dose-related toxic neuropathy. Thus the old dude on my ward who can no longer walk properly, though arguably he has at least 2 other problems that could have done that all by themselves and I now have to figure out which one is more responsible for what...
