I promise, one day soon, I'll post something with substance...
...but these are my days right now. A maze of words and quizzes.
Pseudohypoparathyroidism: an autosomal recessive disorder, cararcterised be renal end-organ unresponsiveness of the kidney to PTH and by shortened fourth and fifth metacarpals and metatarsals, short stature, and other skeletal abnormalities.
Similar skeletal abnormalities, without parathyroid hormone dysfunction, characterise a rare entity termed pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism.


Dear God. Pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism?

NMS Medicine book is here. It's fucking huge. 696 pages to learn. But I have the question breakdown for the 173-question final, so I'll take that into account (20 questions on Cardiology, 1 on urology means why worry about urology?).
Also just-arrived: Cane Toads: An Unnatural History. Yay, my very own copy. Must inflict on Ayoyo at earliest convenience.

Chapter count: 20. Three completed this morning, despite my distraction.
Four chapters to do this afternoon, including skin, CNS, musculoskeletal, and the it-bit (yay for Jeff-isms!) one on medical statistics. I'm on target. I'm also starving. Time for lunch.

Pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism???

Huh?

What in the blazes is that supposed to mean? "Fake Fake Hypoparathyroidism"? "Fake Counterfeit Hypoparathyroidism"?

Whoever came up with that term needs to be hurt. Or at least banned from coming up with any more terms.

Okay, time to go take a walk and get my van. Maybe I can make it to the garage by 5:30. @#:+)

Cane Toads?

Cane Toads? That looks rather scary actually. Can you spoil the ending? What did they eventually wind up doing to them all?

Re: Cane Toads?

They're still spreading, as of the film's making.
