  1. I think earplugs are against the rules now. They give you "noise cancelling headphones" that don't work and fall off your head every 3 minutes instead.

  5. This is a stellar one, Fizzy. Might have to post you again later at my own blog, to brag about my amazing computer acquaintances.

    What if you worst subject is female pelvis (even if you have one?)? Then are you totally screwed?

    I tried that coat trick during the gross anatomy exam on The Pelvis. It doesn't work - just warning those taking Step 1. Step 1 is a little more important that getting one (only one in med school) F that drags your Gross Anatomy grade down to a B.

  6. I always found that when in doubt the answer was aortic stenosis.

  7. Grumpy, the answer is only lupus if the patient is a female. If the patient is African American, the answer is sarcoidosis.
