i wanna be so close to someone that we can talk all night and never get tired
according to the Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein AMA they told Kyle MacLachlan to improvise “literally anything” for this song
Why do you think those two are hugging and crying? my resident asks as we watch our attending embrace a man about his age. It’s because one year ago that patient was given four months to live. I saw him then, he looked like he was on his deathbed.
No one knew what he had
But our attending figured it out. He diagnosed him.
It was a rare form of leukemia.
You know it’s rare when Google’s feeble attempts to help out only turns up a handful of journal articles.
Do you know how he knew?
He read an article about it a few weeks before.
Everyone laughed at him, but he remembered that article and demanded we run the tests.
Turns out, he was right.
Never forget, reading saves lives.
To the first years, just staring out your med school journey, not sure why they signed up for this. To those who just finished boards, and never want to pick up a text book again. To the premeds, who just want to finish up their pre reqs and get to medical school already. To the spouses, who wonder if they will ever see their significant others without a textbook again.
This is why we do it.
This is why we stay up past our bedtimes.
And wake up before the sun.
This is why we memorize overly complicated pathways until we can do them in our sleep.
Why we can name every class of antibiotic, even those no one uses anymore.
This is why we push ourselves to be better every day than we were the last.
Why we put our lives on hold.
Not for more letters to put behind our name.
Not for some number on a score sheet.
Not because mom told us to.
We do it because one day, a day that will occur far faster than we are ready for, we’ll have our own patients.
One day someone will come in and ask you “so doc, what is it.” And you’ll say to yourself, I know this.
So when the tediousness of studying gets you down, don’t forget:
Reading saves lives.
This feels like it needs epic music to go with it.
Compose the music and I’ll sing this from the rooftops.
(In all seriousness — this is an important reminder for all physicians and healthcare providers, before/during/after school/exams/residency/beyond!)
Quick someone start composing. I’m betting we have enough musicians on here we can get an epic Lord of the Rings-esque piece going.
I’ll dust off the ol’ flute
A hydra is a snake right? So basically Nick fury is trying to get hydra off the helicarrier right? Does that mean he’s trying to get those motherfucking snakes off his motherfucking plane?

i shouldn’t have laughed as much as i did
When you realize that someone is only being nice to you because they want something
SPREAD THAT WORD BUTTER ALL ON THEM EAR-BREADS
"Why do you want this job?"
Because under capitalism I am forced to sell my labor in order to subsist.
