Random Tidbits

Sorry for the shortage of has gotten overwhelming since going home for a short interblock break after the renal exam. Some very sad things happened. We started the gastrointestinal (GI) block last Thursday.

Some interesting tidbits gleaned from school and life:

- Saw Mandy Moore at the airport last week...that was random...but I was actually able to recognize a celebrity...

- A Cochrane Collaborative mug that reads: "What have I learned from the Cochrane Collaborative?" [turn mug around] "Answer: Life is full of trials."

- Human beings have "anal tonsils." What are they, you ask? Lymphatic tissue just like your oral tonsils, except that they line the other end of your GI tube...makes perfect sense in a gross kind of way. God thought of everything, he really did. The presence of anal tonsils may have increased or facilitated the transmission of HIV among homosexual men.
