Quotes of the week  

1. Jessica: You don't just wake up one day and realise Oh, I'm gay.
    Mary: I did.

2. On inspecting the kidney of a dead man: 
Me: So, that thing from the kidney's leading down south ... it must be a ureter going to the bladder, right?
Michael: It's going to the cul de sac.

3. I'm going to start posting fic on this journal again and use the other as a storage space. If that bothers anyone 
Rhett Butler: Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.

ETA: Everyone who commented on the last post? Yes, you know who you are. I always thought it sucked to give a generic 'thank you' instead of individual ones, but right now I really can't do justice in my replies. I'm touched, undeserving of people's opinion of me, and dead tired.

Well oncologists are (at least in the US) noted for trying to get their patients to go through radiation therapy long after it would have done any good and even when the patient is, for all intents and purposes, dead.

... Yeah, it may be kind of an obscure joke, but I get a kick out of it. A twisted and slightly morbid kick, but there you have it.

Yes. We have a proud tradition of drugging our kids into submission.

Actually, just the other day I was listening to a radio program that talked about how many kids have DIED because of these ADD/ADHD drugs, and how quite a few of them hadn't actually ever been diagnoses with ADD/ADHD. Parents think that they need ADD/ADHD drugs to calm their kids down, when, you know, kids are naturally excitable and these drugs are pretty much just slightly safer variations of speed, so unless they actually have ADD/ADHD it's not going to do a heck of a lot in the calming-kids-down arena. It was sad. I think the saddest thing about it though is that some doctors let parents bully them into writing a prescription for kids who don't actually need the drugs.
