I'm getting old OR what is wrong with people?

I think I'm getting a little to old for my class. I only have 10-12 years on the majority of the girls in my class, considering I was married with a child at their age, it feels like 20!

Today started off with Assessmants class, we are learning about knee conditions and special orthopaedic testing. So we do the neurological tests, and the ranges of motion, all is relatively quiet. We partner up and are going through the special tests and all you hear is "ow", from one of of the younger girls, mind you these tests are not supposed to be pain provoking, but, whatever.

After lunch, we have pathophysiology, we're doing psychiatric disorders. Same girl who was ow-ing this morning pipes up during each topic.. "I have that, oh I have that". Today, said girl diagnosed herself with chondromalacia patella, general anxiety disorder, depression and ADHD. WTF?

My clinical impression: a)hypochondriac or b)attention seeker.

Then during the drive home I hear the radio personalities talking about “The Human Centipede” written and directed by Dutch filmmaker Tom Six... here is the review:

Internationally respected Siamese twin surgeon Dr. Josef Heiter has a demented vision for mankind’s future existence. He wants to remove human beings’ kneecaps so they have to exist on all fours and then surgically graft them mouth-to-anus to form a centipede chain. When two stranded female Americans arrive at his luxury home-cum-hospital looking for help, his long-gestating plan swiftly moves into chilling action with a shocking force. Kidnapping a third Japanese male tourist he begins the tissue matches, teeth removal and buttock molding to create his triplet creature.

Yeah you just read that. Maybe sit back and think about it for a few minutes. Ass to mouth stuff going on here folks.

Either I'm getting old, or people are messed up!


  1. Perhaps the good doctor would like to start on himself as an experiment?

  2. That is so crazy it just would never work!

    hypochondriac - definitely - hypochondriac

  3. I know a lot of people on a personal journey to see if they can permanently self-affix head-to-anus... and having dealt with them, I'd say they're succeeding.

  4. The world is truly falling apart. Blogger itself has hypochondria, AD/HD - Impulsive Type, and Dissociative Identity Disorder.
    Keep us sane, Baygirl. Keep us sane.

  5. Ummm, I have nothing... I'm speechless.

  6. That's crazy. Yep, people are messed up!

  7. There is a movie trailer floating around on that one...
