Podcast Duel....

So...there's not much do after work around here. The 8 movies we had on the laptop and old paperbacks are running out. Even for a med student, there's is only so much studying that can be done. The TV (sporadic at best) has been out for a couple weeks. The mileage on our evening runs is increasing. Often, we entertain ourselves with podcasts while we make dinner. God bless BBC Africa. You would be amazed at what's out there. Unfortunately, we don't always agree on what to listen to. So tonight Kevin and I have decided to hold the first ever Bratcher-Harvey Podcast Duel. Whoever can stand the other person's podcast the longest without falling asleep or talking wins. Kevin just downloaded 1 hour and 10 minutes of 2 English web developers talking about "HTML snippets, pros and cons of version typing, and a featurette on javascript techniques." Scary. However, I will unleash the New England Journal of Medicine February 21st. Highlights include: "Featured are articles on aprotinin during coronary-artery bypass grafting and risk of death, the effect of aprotinin on outcome after coronary-artery bypass grafting, surgical versus nonsurgical treatment for lumbar spinal stenosis, hepatitis E virus and chronic hepatitis in organ-transplant recipients, and scientific and legal viability of follow-on protein drugs; a review article on lumbar spinal stenosis; a case report of a woman with renal failure and stiffness of the joints and skin; and Perspective articles on quality-improvement research and informed consent. " If y'all are smart, you'll bet on me. Results to follow.

Sounds like you guys are forced to improve your minds after work. What a bummer!
Here, where we never are without multiple stimuli, the UT boys basketball team, number two in the nation beat Memphis, number one in the nation.
And then, of course, there is the election. I understand that two men, brother and brother-in-law, got into an argument about Clinton and Obama and ended up with one of them stabbing the other in the stomach.
How strange life is.
Take care.
