How to Date a Med Student

Posted: July 26, 2010 in fun

Dating a med student? Check out these tips for a “healthy” relationship.

1. Don’t expect to see them. Ever.

2. Accept the fact they will have many affairs. With their books.

3. Learn to hide your “ew, gross” reactions when they tell you all the stuff you never wanted to know about your bodily functions.

4. Support them when they come home after each test, upset because they failed—and gently remind them after they get their well above passing grade how unnecessary the “I’m going to fail out of medical school and never become an MD” dramatics are.

5. Each week they will have a new illness. Some will be extremely rare, others will be more mundane. Doesn’t matter. They will be certain they have it (no second opinions necessary.) Med school can, and will, turn even the sanest into a hypochondriac. Date them for long enough, and you’ll become one too.

6. There will be weeks you’ll forget you even have a boyfriend—friends will ask how he is and you’ll say, “What? Who? Oh….right. He’s well…I think.”

7. They’ll make you hyper-aware that germs are everywhere and on everything. Even though you used to walk into your home with your shoes on, and sit on your bed in the same clothes you just wore while riding the subway, or sat on a public bench in, you’ll become far too disgusted to ever do it again. Believe me, it’s going to get bad…you’ll watch yourself transform into the anal retentive person you swore you’d never become. And when you witness others perform these same acts that, before you began dating your med student, you spent your entire life doing too, you’ll wince and wonder, “Ew! How can they do that? Don’t they know how many germs and bacteria they’re spreading??!”

8. Romantic date = Chinese take-out in front of the TV on their 10 minute study break.

9. A vacation together consists of a trip down the street to Walgreens for new highlighters and printer paper.

10. Their study habits will make you feel like a complete slacker. For them, hitting the books 8-to-10 hours a day is not uncommon, nor difficult. You’ll wonder how you ever managed to pass school on your meager one hour of studying per night.

11. They’re expected to know everything. Everything! The name of the 8 billion-lettered, German sounding cell that lives in the depths of your inner ear, the technical term for the “no one’s ever heard of this disease” disease that exists only on one foot of the Southern tip of the African continent. But ask them if your knee is swollen, or what you should do to tame your mucous-filled cough, or why the heck your head feels like someone’s been drilling through it for oil for two weeks straight, and they won’t have a clue.

12. “My brain’s filled with so much information, I can’t be expected to remember THAT!” will be the standard excuse for forgetting anniversaries, birthdays, and, if you get this far, probably the birth of your first-born.

13. You’ll need friends with unending patience who pretend never to get sick of listening to your endless venting and complaints. Or, you’ll need to pay a therapist who will pretend never to get sick of listening to your endless venting and complaints.

But take this all with a grain of salt. It’s not like I’m speaking from experience or anything…

Struggling hard to learn the basics of mixed martial arts .(a full contact combat sport that allows a wide variety of fighting techniques, from a mixture of martial arts traditions and non-traditions, to be used in competitions. The rules allow the use of striking and grappling techniques, both while standing and on the ground. Such competitions allow martial artists of different backgrounds to compete. The term may also be used, less correctly, to describe hybrid martial arts styles.)

Gaming notebooks are often the trappings of the wealthier geeks — or at least those that forgo food to afford a pr_msi_gx630_f

MSI GX630

high-priced rig. But now you can afford a decent gaming notebook, even if you aren’t the type who has a season pass at Aspen and a Lamborghini. You don’t need a dump truck full of cash to afford the $800 MSI GX630, and it can actually hold its own in the most heated frag-fest.

Granted, it can’t go head-to-head against a $3,500 Alienware 17-incher, but it isn’t a dollar-menu double cheeseburger either. MSI included a 2.3-GHz AMD X2 and 4 GB of RAM to give it a respectable 100.4 frames per second in Quake 4, and its business performance score put it in league with a Sony FZ or Apple 15-incher.

Then again, you can’t offer such an affordable gamer without cutting corners. There’s no Blu-ray option, so you won’t be piping any hot hi-def out to your TV with this machine. The keyboard is also a weird mix of thoughtful accents and blundered control placement. The addition of a numpad is smart, but some gamers will fume at the misplacement of the left Control button (there’s a Fn button in its stead). There are also only 2 USB ports, and the fan blows right on your mouse hand (unless you’re a southpaw).

The system’s 1.5-hour battery life is poopy at best. It gets a little leeway by being a gaming machine, but for a 15-incher, the battery life should be better. But for all these shortcomings, the GX630 receives an executive pardon for its price — ramen-eating game junkies everywhere should rejoice.

WIRED Cheap, cheap, cheap. Offers decent but not astounding gaming performance combined with solid business skillz.

TIRED Mushy keyboard with a misplaced Control key. Hot fan makes for sweaty mouse hand. Where’s our Blu-ray drive?

Soon we may get the first ever glimpse of the dark side of the sun.

Well, no, there’s no actual dark side of a luminous ball of burning gas, but there is an effective dark side, as in, the side of the sun we can’t see at any given time.

Scientists aren’t content to get just half of the picture, so they’ve launched the STEREO (Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatories) mission, a pair of NASA spacecraft that will orbit the sun simultaneously to provide a complete view of all sides of the star at once.

“Then there will be no place to hide and we can see the entire sun for the first time,” STEREO project scientist Michael Kaiser of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center told Wired.com.

The perfect spherical view will come on Feb. 6, 2011. Right now the satellites, which were launched in October 2006, are about 90 degrees apart, which allows a picture of about 270 degrees of the sun — the fullest view yet.

“The who goal of all of this is to try to get a better handle to try to predict solar storms, which cause cell phone disturbances, and disruptions to communications and power.” Kaiser said. “We’d like to be able to predict these things as far in advance as possible to give us a longer warning time.”

Solar storms are magnetic disruptions on the sun that release violent sprays of charged particles into space. These storms can produce magnificent displays of the Northern Lights. But some past storms have also cost airlines and satellite communications industries millions of dollars, and have led to large scale power blackouts (including one across the entire province of Quebec, Canada). Being able to reliably forecast these tempests in advance could make a huge difference in preventing disturbances on Earth.

Predicting solar weather is also important for the future of manned spaceflight. If astronauts are exposed to the intense radiation from solar storms while traveling beyond the protective magnetic field of the Earth, they could suffer serious harm. Even astronauts close to home who venture out for a spacewalk during a storm are put in danger.

“For future missions going to the moon and Mars, that’s very important,” Kaiser said. “Some of these solar storms can be very intense. If the astronauts were completely exposed to one of these storms the radiation could be high.”

The STEREO mission also aims to improve our basic scientific understanding of the dynamics within the sun, which could shed light on the workings of stars in general.

Há Dias

Há dias que vem
Só vem
E dias que vão
E só vão
E eu sei
Também só tenho que passar.

Beira a mar
A beira ira
Maravilha ou solidão
É para que?
E para quem estou?
De qualquer maneira
De qualquer maneira vai passar
De qualquer maneira
De qualquer maneira vou ficar

[translation]

Há Dias (There are days)

There are days
that just come
And days
that just go
And some days,
I just pass too

I’m on the edge of a beautiful sea
On the edge of anger,
marvel or solitude
What is this for?
Why am I here?
I know, I know
Good or bad
It will pass
And I’m not giving up

Cognitive dissonance is a psychological term describing the uncomfortable tension that may result from having two conflicting thoughts at the same time, or from engaging in behavior that conflicts with one’s beliefs, or from experiencing apparently conflicting phenomena.

Do you sleep on your side, with one knee bent and the other straight? You are a quiet and introverted person. The saying ‘Still waters run deep’ seems to have been made for you, because though you don’t talk much, you observe and listen. You talk less because you don’t believe in indulging in unnecessary conversation. You are intelligent, and are of a balanced nature. Rarely will you lose control of yourself. You know what you are doing, and where you are going. However, you don’t have too much patience with those who are less intelligent than you. Loosen up! You don’t discuss your feelings, and are not a very emotional person. You are rational and think with your head, not with your heart.
