is Horse Latitudes. When the still sea conspires an armor, And her sullen and aborted currents breed tiny monsters, TRUE SAILING IS DEAD! Awkward instant, and the first animal is jettisoned.

I think he came flat up against one of the greatest trials or our age, specifically, to be used (emotionally) incestuously by his mother. (Which emotional is the standard though generally unrecognized form of mother/son incest.) He took some pains to understand what happened to him, though in the end was unequal to the resultant self-destructiveness. Still, all that notwithstanding, he did his best to "live out" and make a positive contribution in the form of great/cathartic art and entertainment.

QUALIFYING as an MD might indeed be hard work, but though many doctors do in fact ultimately "toil" significantly, they also stand to ultimately attain relative autonomy AND be turned loose ("orgiastic") upon a trough of green backs. An engineer's fate, on the other hand, is more along the lines of "an honest day's pay for an honest day's toil."

To summarize, that (ie. "money mountain") is precisely what still draws substantial numbers into medicine.

Comment Re:Wouldn't They See That in the Endocrine System? (Score 1) 252

Yeah, that article looks like real schlock. I'm shocked to see something like this anywhere outside of the tabloids

Mainly, I'm shocked that we should appear to know so little about physiological development. I guess their saying there is nothing wrong with her endocrine system must mean the hormones are found. But, does that mean they then know nothing about the receptors and secondary developmental mechanisms? In that case, how would they know the things they are looking at are even growth hormones? Truly shocked medical science should draw such a blank on this one.
