Let's play doctor...

I have been uncompromising, peppery, intractable, monomaniacal, tactless, volatile, and often times disagreeable ... I suppose I'm larger than life.

I’m a lover and a fighter. I get angry easily, but I’m working on it. I sleep and think too much, but I get my shit done. I have a weakness for sweet talkers, but I’m learning and enforcing my boundaries. I don’t let many people in, but once they’re in, they’re there forever. I’m strong and independent and I’ve been broken, but never shattered.

This is how medical school ruins moments like this. Go ahead and watch the clip if you haven’t.

It’s obviously fake, and you can come at this from the cinematic approach but I’ll show you how someone in the medical field would view this.

When a pedestrian is struck by a car like that the bumper will impact the lower leg, the hip or shoulder will then impact the hood of the car and the shoulder or head will impact the windshield. At this point the pedestrian is going to be thrown to the side of the vehicle or forward. “But wait Josh, she’s kind of thrown forward in the clip!” Ok, when I say thrown forward I mean thrown forward. Think physics and the transfer of kinetic energy here, there would have been a great distance between the car and the pedestrian post impact. Also notice the lack of dent in the hood of the car.

At high speeds (like on a highway) the victim is going to fly up and over the car, and then could be run over. At the speed depicted the pedestrian would be thrown to the side or forward. For the pedestrian to be run over as depicted, the car would have to be going slow. As in slow enough that the pedestrian could be briskly walked out of the way.

When a pedestrian is thrown up onto the hood/windshield we often find pelvic, and rib fractures. Depending on the angle of the collision spine fractures are also commonly seen. The blunt force of the impact often ruptures organs and causes internal bleeding. The most common cause of death in a collision is head and neck injuries. Facial, skull and neck fractures are the usual suspects. Epideral and subdural hemorrhages are also usually caused by the force of the impact to the head. So yeah, don’t get hit by a speeding car, ok?

There you have it. It’s frustrating watching movies at times because people who make movies rarely have any idea how these things work, so I end up laughing awkwardly at traumatic scenes that creep people out.

another “steering wheel” aortic dissection. the trauma of being in a high velocity trauma causes the heart to separate from the aorta resulting in nearly instantaneous death, so think car crashes or falling from a plane.


WOWWWWWWWWWWW

Omg, seriously?? way to be totally bias. I think I will do one about Democrats now..
I’m going need to find a XXL t-shirt for that, though.
I’m just kidding, clearly I won’t do that. I do think it’s absolutely ridiculous that you waste your time posting things like that.
Of course the majority of college students are Democratic, it leaves room for exploring and it will be that way until you are out in the real world. I can’t wait for peoples’ views to change when the rules actually apply to them. 

That’s funny, because that’s how I feel about young people who vote Republican. Wait until you’re my age and a parent and struggling to get by because the rich politicians only care about their campaign donors. 
By the way, it’s “way to be totally biased”.

OP: You “won’t do that” because YOU CAN’T THINK OF ANYTHING. But here are some ideas!
I voted Democrat and all I got was some health insurance, extended unemployment, more rights (abortion, marijuana, gay marriage), and the knowledge that if something terrible happened to me and I had no family or friends to support me, I would never have to be homeless and destitute. And if I ever make a lot of money — which I will, some day — I’ll have to pay a tiny bit more of it to make sure every American has the same safety net. WORTH IT.
I’m “out in the real world” now, and I am thrilled to be a Democrat.

except it should actually say “i voted democrat but i didn’t get a damn thing because republicans are thwarting any hope of progress or positive change”.
but i mean, that’s just my opinion. 
and don’t act like just because i’m eighteen my point is invalid. i have been directly affected by issues like unemployment, abortion and healthcare. just because we’re young doesn’t mean we don’t notice the shit our parents go through.

iwantedtruth asked: awww Going med?
Will be going to reach your dream?
Goodluck sweety:)
I someday hope I can go study med too <3
Tell me you're experience, and what you felt while studying kk? If you wont mind?
hee hee take care :D

Hello =)

I’ve been doing med for a while now. 1 year.

Med is a HARD career to study for. If your in it for the money, I can guarantee you won’t make it.

Your whole LIFE is consumed by it. You eat, sleep, dream MEDICINE. 

A friend recently commented to me an analogy: Studying medicine is like eating pancakes. Everyday you have to eat 5 pancakes. Some days you hate you, somedays you don’t mind, other days you can’t get enough. BUT EVERYDAY YOU HAVE TO EAT THE PANCAKES. And if you don’t eat them one day, the next day they pile up.. instead of the minimum 5, you now have to eat 10..etc.. 
Thats how you study medicine. EVERYDAY.

But when you love the science, the mountain of medicine no longer seems like an impossible mountain to climb, but instead becomes a series of small hills that you overcome each day. 

 I love it and I can never see myself doing anything else.

What do I feel while studying? A RUSH.
