Hitler on Match Day

May 13, 2011 6 comments

Every year on Match Day during the month of March, thousands of medical students find out where they are going to be enslaved performing their residencies in US hospitals.  In this clip, I present to  you Hitler finding out his match results.  (I made this video with the help of  Windows Live Move Maker using a scene from the movie, Downfall).

Doctor Nurse (NOCTOR) Shopping at Costco

"Oh no she didn't!"

 Just when you think you have seen it all folks.   Mad props to “DREDAY” over on the SDN forums for capturing this pic at a recent trip to the local Costco (who verified that this was indeed a doctor nurse from the labeling on the white coat).   They say a picture says a thousand words.  I think it says a million.  Still wondering why I finally had enough?  The bastardization of American healthcare marches on.

Goodbye Medicine

“I find I’m so excited I can barely sit still, or hold a thought in my head. I think it’s the excitement only a free man can feel. A free man at the start of a long journey who’s conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend, and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope.”

One for the Emergency Medicine Docs

Nothing like a good Xtranormal video to portray a day in the life of an ER doc.  So funny because it is so damn true!  The original version that garnered over 1 million views was pulled down but here is an equally entertaining remix.  Enjoy!

Scariest Graph Ever

“Until recently, I thought that there would never again be an opportunity to be involved with an industry as socially destructive and morally bankrupt as the subprime mortgage industry. I was wrong. The for-profit education industry has proven equal to the task.” -Steve Eisman (renowned hedge fund manager who called the housing market collapse)

I have been preaching for almost two years now how the student loan crisis is shaping up to be one of the most catastrophic financial disasters to lay assault on this country. And it is. Education in America has been hijacked by a cartel of banking thugs and administrative wolves cloaked in sheepskin all in cahoots with the US govt. Though the media has SLOWLY been picking up on this issue, our govt continues to sleep behind the wheel (surprising?). I have done quite a bit of research on this very topic and have quite frankly been blown away by all the disgusting corruption and greed that goes on behind the curtain. Everything from former for profit college lobbyists now working at the Dept of Education to recruiters drumming up warm bodies at homeless shelters to the University of Phoenix’s impressive 4% graduation rate for online students is enough to make my head spin in utter disbelief.
Today in France the youth are protesting in droves after the govt proposed raising the retirement age from 60 to 62. I can only imagine how they would react to our student loan situation! We should be in the streets going ApeSh!t over this. Check out the graph above and see for yourself how this bubble is inflating beyond belief. It makes the recent housing bubble seem like a mere blip! Scary graph indeed!!!
