"Lips" Reversed

A semi corollary to the "lips" of 85's post..

A few years back, about 1980 or so, I remember picking up a chart with the chief complaint of headache. Walked in the room to see a young fellow. Asked him to describe his headache and he says "It ain't that head Doc" I almost pissed myself!

Tx'd him for GC and sent him on his way. Probably the best STD I ever treated!

  1. but was it the best STD you ever had?

  2. Hey man, STDs are no joke. I caught the GC in college, from a preachers daughter as a matter of fact. Got the probe up the wiener and a softball of penicillin in my ass. Of course now I'm the most selfrighteous asshole around telling people to use condoms and wait for marriage.

  3. Texas Tech is so classy we have our very own STD. Raider Rash or Lubbock Clap.

    Go Raiders.

  4. Doesn't Tech also have "Tortilla Trich"?

  5. Lubbock actually has one of the highest STD and teen pregnancy rates around.. the STD rate for Lubbock is higher than the Texas rate and national rate.. scary! Guess there's not much to do out here.. especially with these stupid dust storms (we're in the middle of one right now)..

  6. Tortilla Trich, hehe.

    Jess- Dude, it's sad that we have to wear sunglasses when it isn't even sunny, just to keep the dirt and leaves and shit out of our eyes!

  7. Speaking of STDs my 13 year old daughter stumped me with a physics question this weekend. Imagine you have a 250,000 mile long rope, with no slack that extends to an astronaut on the moon. At a given signal you give the rope a vigorous tug. How long will it take for the astronaut to feel your tug? I answered it wrong.

  8. Sounds like Jess speaks from experience on this matter!

  9. Yes erdoc85, I am a giant whore. Not really. Had to sit through a boring ass lecture recently about the "health disparities" and other touchy feely crap about West Texas, which included the rate info I mentioned above. Oh and ee I forgot to grab my sunglasses today on the way out the door, which made for a very sucky million mile long walk from my car to the building.. I hate dust storms!

  10. what's the physics answer? Can't be instantaneous... must be 2.792 x 10^8 m/s (or "c")...

    ReplyDelete
  11. yes, do tell about the physics answer. it must be an ideally unelastic and ideally taut rope then i guess the fastest possible would be speed of light. do tell!

    ReplyDelete
  12. He should feel it instantly.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Well crap, maybe not...

    The tug may be absorbed long before it was felt, if the tug propagates at the extensional velocity (the speed of sound in that medium)...but I don't know what the extensional velocity for rope is...

    ReplyDelete
  14. Changed my mind again, it would be felt instantly.

    There is a speed of light.
    There is a speed of sound.
    There is no speed of force.

    That's my final answer, Regis.

  15. Somebody's brain is definitely working overtime! ee, get out your protocol for SVT and stick your head in a bucket of ice water....QUICK before you overheat! (p.s. I agree with your final answer)

  16. Haha, I'm kind of a nerd...

  17. Jess: Thank God you're just a giant whore! Take heart. It could be worse...I mean you could be married to a Mexican or something.

  18. According to relativity, nothing can go faster than the speed of light, so the tug will be felt about 1.5 seconds later. I answered that the tug should be felt instantaneously, which was how Newton thought gravity worked back in the 17th century, quite appropriate, since thats where I get my child rearing ideas.

    ReplyDelete
  19. You're telling me that the THEORY of relativity trumps the LAW of gravity? I'm not buying it. I say it would be instantaneous...now prove me wrong. Sir Newton kicks Einstein's ass (he even had a title).

  20. erdoc85: even worse, I could be an AGGIE! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Jess: Love ya, but you could NEVER be an Aggie.

    Gig 'Em doll face.

    ReplyDelete
  22. ErDoc, I'm sceptical about the relativity thing too. Its like you have a central line hooked up to some one on alpha centauri(4 light years away) and you give it a big yank...its not gonna come out for 4 years?? I'm steering my daughter toward being a F-22 pilot.

    ReplyDelete
  23. erdoc85: Love ya too.. I know I could never be an Aggie.. can't do that cult mentality thing.. or worship a dog..

    ReplyDelete
  24. Frank: Classic! The answer to the central line question depends on whether the patient on alpha centaur is in a VA hospital or not. If so, there's a 99% chance that the nurse will accidently pull it out before you have a chance to yank on it.

    Jess: We don't worship the dog...we revere her. There might be a big difference here, but I don't know what it is. As for the cult thing, well....you got me there!

  25. erdoc85: Please see my latest blog post. You'll hopefully enjoy. ;)

  26. ee: agreed.

    Classy? Definitely NOT.

    Funny? Reluctantly, I have to say that I did supress a giggle.

    You're young, so you may not know about this. A number of years ago, merely days after Reville the III or IV died, the Rice Band (The Mob) performed at Kyle Field during half-time.

    They formed a fire hydrant on Kyle Field and played "Oh where, Oh where has my little dog gone?".

    They needed a police escort out of College Station! Also not classy, but funny.

  27. That is so wrong! Funny, but wrong!

    Haha.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Nothing funny about STD's. No matter how much you educate people...they all think it'll never happen to them!

  29. ErDoc, good one, a few years at the Alabama-Auburn game some Tiger fans had a skeleton wearing a Bear Bryant Hounds tooth hat, with a "Shake hands with Bear Bryant $1" sign around his neck. Its like 6th grade, your enemy only wins if you let him know it bothers you.

  30. "Just answer the fuckin' question!!"

    (from maybe the greatest movie ever made)

    When will he feel the tug?? Depends on if he has his pants zipped or not..
