The Friday Post #31: A Collection of Errors, Pimping, Anatomical Knitting and One Classic Music Video

Here’s the Friday Post #31 for Apr 24 2009.

First:  A funny collection of One Hundred 404 Error Screens from the blog of Francesco Mugnai. I especially liked the guy with the long ponytail in the red cowboy bikini and the thigh-high leather boots (you know, the one holding the .357 magnum).  In fact I think it may be Sean Connery.

Do Not Sulk or Cry

Students who answer incorrectly should not become overly discouraged. Attendings rarely remember students who give wrong answers (especially to difficult questions); they often remember those who lose their composure.

Excerpt from  “The Art of Pimping” by Alan Detsky, MD – published in JAMA, Vol. 301 – issue 13, p. 1379-1381 (April 1 2009)

DB’s MedRants and many other physician-bloggers – have already blogged about this article.  Life in the Fast Lane wrote a multi-part post about pimping.  Funny and cruel.

Exams are finally wrapped up for awhile (after ten difficult days for the  students), so get jiggy with Will Smith for a minute because 3.7 million views on YouTube can’t be wrong, and besides, those Egyptians are very handsome :

    I knit but not in that way…!! I admire people who can just pick up some yarn and two needles and say, today I’m going to make a (fill in the blank), and just start creating it. If I don’t have a pattern, I’m hopeless. Thanks,
