Now, make the buy out mandatory if a general partner dies. Don’t fuck yourself, you have to have rules about these things.
S, JD on legal stuff to take care of in starting a practice with someone else.
When you’re at the gynocologist, and they say, “A+, I wish they were all like that.” What does that even……refer to?
You are welcome?
OB/GYN: words are important.
I’ll never forget the exam where I was told my cervix was tricksy.
Female voters in the US have been called “soccer moms” and “security moms”. In 2004, single women were “Sex and the City voters”. Now – because apparently women can’t ever just be “citizens” or “voters”, or more likely because conservatives prefer to call us names instead of delving too deep into women’s issues – we are “Beyoncé voters”. Bow down, bitches.
Most single ladies would generally be thrilled with a comparison to Queen Bey in any way, shape or form, but the cutesy nicknames for politically-engaged women need to stop. Surely pundits and the political media culture can deal with the collective electoral power of the majority voting bloc in this country in some better way than symbolically calling us “sweetheart”, complete with head pat.
Last night we admitted on suspicion of pertussis (still waiting for confirmatory labs when they were transferred to the floor) a less than one month old preemie. They were in the pediatric ER because they stopped breathing at home.
You know a heartbreaking sound? Hearing a baby who should still…

and then in 2009, they said “Maaaaaybe we should talk about that whole internets thing”…
S, JD on HIPAA . He actually gave a 15 minute snark. It was amazing. There was a slide comparing hippos to hipaa too.
The law says you can enter into a contract at 18. Why? I know 16 year olds who are very responsible and could enter a contract to buy their own car or whatever, and 30 year olds who are so immature they should never be allowed to enter a contract at all. But we can’t take the time to make a case by case judgment for every contract…
S, JD on informed consent.
Marvel Comics is making Thor a woman. From Time Magazine:
TIME: How do you think this will impact fans who have been with the male version of Thor for such a long time?
Jason Aaron, writer of the Thor series: If you’re a long-time Thor fan you know there’s kind of a tradition from time to time of somebody else picking up that hammer. Beta Ray Bill was a horse-faced alien guy who picked up the hammer. At one point Thor was a frog. So I think if we can accept Thor as a frog and a horse-faced alien, we should be able to accept a woman being able to pick up that hammer and wield it for a while, which surprisingly we’ve never really seen before.

Hubby came home all bloodied up from a code grey today. He’s pretty much a badass. Pretty sure he could be the PMAB/ tai chi grandmaster.
