A choice bit of wisdom from a thread at the Student Doctor forums.
Other nice items:
"If you have taken 7 home pregnancy tests that are all positive, and you come into the emergency department...chances are that test too will come back positive."
"When cleaning a swimming pool with Muriatic acid, if you splash a large amount of it on your face and arms, vinegar is not a good neutralizing solution."
"If those two dudes broke your arm while you were walking home from Church on a Friday night, and the trauma surgeon fixed it via external fixation, DO NOT by any means use a wirecutter to remove it 4 days after discharge."
"Never, ever leave flashlights, shampoo bottles, beer bottles or any long, circular object on the floor because someday you will fall on it and it will somehow, work its way up your rectum."
"If you're on the street corner selling coke and you see the cops coming to bust you don't eat all your coke. "Posted by ryan at February 2, 2006 8:28 PM
