    [–] Daily Questions - April 11, 2019 curious_kitt 2 points ago in femalefashionadvice

    Favorite comfortable and durable work shoes for flat feet? I need something that will allow me to stand for 12+hours, run around, and still look professional.

    United States, less than $80

    [–] [V] How can I make my pasta a bit more interesting? curious_kitt 1 points ago in EatCheapAndHealthy

    My favorite cheap veggies for pasta are zucchini, squash, broccoli, Roma tomatoes, green bell peppers! A bit of lemon or just some red pepper flakes could spice it up a bit too. I also love adding a fried egg on top of my pasta. The runny yolk adds richness. And more protein is always good!

    [–] TIFU by sitting next to Mao curious_kitt 1 points ago in tifu

    Obviously, estimates vary. Just the Great Leap Forward is estimated to have killed 45 million in most recent estimates by Dikotter. Plus his many purges, classiside/genocides, mass suicides and executions, and labor camps. I can post sources when I’m home later.

    Again, not saying America isn’t responsible for horrible things, but I don’t think one human cannot compete with the number of deaths Mao was responsible for in terms of policy mistakes and genocide.

    [–] [Shitpost] Me trying to present to my attending after the residents curious_kitt 108 points ago in medicalschool

    Attending: cuts you off after ten seconds in. End of rotation feedback for student: “needs to develop plans more.”

    [–] LOOKING FOR A STUDY BUDDY ⚠ curious_kitt 1 points ago in medschool

    I’m potentially interested. DM me?

    [–] How many opportunities are there to travel during med school and residency? curious_kitt 3 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago) in medschool

    I think if you prioritize travel over other things you can make it happen. I have peers who went to Japan and Europe and other places during holidays, while I prioritized seeing my family who was helping to support my dream. Also no clue how people afford it if I’m honest.

    At most schools, during your fourth year you should have time off to travel too. Almost none during Third. And maybe some between one and two. Residency, I wouldn’t count on it. But different fields have different expectations.

    I think it depends also if you want to go abroad for a month... that’s obviously harder.

    [–] White Coat Ceremony Gift Idea curious_kitt 9 points ago in medschool

    Everyone is different and I don’t know her preferences, but I would prefer a bouquet. My reasoning is like you said - it feels less prom-y. But congrats to your sister!

    [–] TIFU by sitting next to Mao curious_kitt 15 points ago in tifu

    Not saying the US presidents don’t have major issues but I don’t think this is comparable.

    Mao is estimated to be responsible for 78 million deaths. Take the number of deaths both Stalin and Hitler are responsible for and DOUBLE that, and then you get close.

    [–] What’s the most fucked up thing that your country has done? curious_kitt 5 points ago in AskReddit

    They lived on valuable land.

    Tibet has mountains with rare metals and materials that are valuable.

    Plus the water in Tibet supplies about 1/3 of the global population. Most notably: India. Controlling a basic life necessity of surrounding countries is a fantastic way to secure people not messing with you.

    [–] What’s the most fucked up thing that your country has done? curious_kitt 4 points ago in AskReddit

    Well said. Can I add the My Lai Massacre, CIA Tibetan Program, and Japanese internment camps to the list of fucked up?

    [–] What’s the most fucked up thing that your country has done? curious_kitt 34 points ago in AskReddit

    And wiped out about a million Tibetans. Those who are left are now not allowed to practice their religion, go to school, and can be forcibly sterilized if they seek medical care. Things are so bad Tibetans are lighting themselves on fire to try to draw attention to it. If they survive, they are imprisoned and tortured. If they try to escape they are sniped down in the mountains.

    The Tibetan genocide is horrifying.

    [–] This is just a work of an hour! #trashtag curious_kitt 1 points ago in pics

    I’m glad you wore gloves! (I get nervous thinking about used needles.) Thank you for all your hard work!

    [–] [I ate] Honey Toast in Tokyo curious_kitt 8 points ago in food

    Can confirm. I’m his girlfriend and he woke me up with this picture. I got ready in record time for one of the best breakfasts I’ve had.

    Everyone should try Tokyo Premium Bakery (and their curry buns)

    [–] Rant: I'm your doctor, please stop. curious_kitt 25 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    20 something female Med student here: I would actually appreciate suggestions on how to best handle these situations. It honestly happens too often. I consider myself a “bold” person, but for some reason I really struggle with addressing these situations, especially when I’m rounding with the whole medical team and everyone else just laughs it off. Thanks for the guidance!

    [–] Good Guy Chidi curious_kitt 1 points ago in blackpeoplegifs

    The sign in the back just fits.

    [–] A good cooperation curious_kitt 10 points ago in AnimalsBeingBros

    Fun fact: Australian Shepherds are not from Australia. I believe ranchers in the western US/Rocky mountains developed the breed to help with herding. The name is a total misnomer!

    [–] He's a doctor curious_kitt 207 points ago in insanepeoplefacebook

    This. I’m in medical school and have seen two people in the past 3 months with this. Both were young, one in his late 30s, the other in her twenties. If you’re going to go to a chiropractor please don’t do traumatic adjustments on your neck!!!

    [–] What is something extremely dangerous that most people aren’t aware of? curious_kitt 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Yes! And those IV vitamin bags that some health concierge companies are pitching as hangover prevention or whatever. We had a lady in a coma from electrolyte shifts after getting one. I thought it was just vitamins and saline, but maybe they administered the wrong ratio or something?

    [–] What is something extremely dangerous that most people aren’t aware of? curious_kitt 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Chiropractic adjustments are more risky than people know, so be sure your provider knows their stuff. I’m sure it is rare and you need to have underlying risk factors, but I’ll never forget my young patient who was paralyzed and couldn’t communicate after a neck adjustment led to a traumatic vertebral artery dissection.

    Disclaimer: pretty much all medical procedures come with risk. Just weigh the need for it, the providers expertise, and your individual risk.

    [–] What character has an undiagnosed mental disorder everyone just ignores? curious_kitt 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I think Patty from Insatiable has borderline personality disorder. The splitting and blaming kept me watching because it felt like a glimpse into some of my patients’ heads.

    [–] What character has an undiagnosed mental disorder everyone just ignores? curious_kitt 5 points ago in AskReddit

    I always thought Luna Lovegood had schitzotypal personality disorder. Also, narcissistic personality disorder fit Lockheart so well. Mad Eye Moody could have had paranoid personality disorder too!

    [–] Students of Reddit, what is something your teacher did that really pissed the whole class? curious_kitt 15 points ago in AskReddit

    My honors organic chemistry 2 college professor deducted points for asking questions (in class or during office hours.) Total prat.
