1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    We used to hold firecrackers with our fingertips all the time. I convinced a kid that if he held one in his palm and squeezed, the pressure would nullify the blast. Didn't end well.

    Someone should start a "stupid shit I did as a kid that almost cost me an eye" thread.

    LOL

    I think I'm still a little deaf from the homemade bomb I set off in my bedroom.

    (If you cut up enough firecrackers you can make a pretty powerful little IED)

    Do you think doctors are blasé about such diseases or is it still horrifying every time

    no p, bro.


    i imagine a bit of both. but also, i dont think that is very common place, so most docs i would guess are at least mildly horrified.

    i will alert doc lawrence to help us out.


    INO.RITE!

    pB - you still havent explained why you came in contact with this.

    If they're in a field where they come into contact with this kind of thing, they get blasé very fast.

    My dad is a retired infectious disease specialist and he used to read the gnarliest stuff at the dinner table. Stuff with graphic photos of suppurating ulcers, bloated testicles, etc.

    when you see such things in person (like in rotations in large government hospitals during clerkship/internship) its not as bad as the pictures.

    its different for every one, but seeing really progressed dermatology cases always gives me the willies.... like a pus-y festering carbuncle. or a really advanced case of scabies where you just want to bathe in a vat of isopropyl alcohol after even being 10 feet near the patient.

    i did a month long pediatrics rotation during clerkship (3rd year med school) in a 3rd world government children's hospital and you'll see really horrific things. I was lucky enough to see a harlequin baby, but it was a mild case where the baby was totally smooth and actually pretty cute.
