Things i have learned about money because of medical school

1.)         Asking your parents for money really sucks. Borrowing money from the government sucks even more. Medical school in the USA is synonymous with massive debt. Not being able to work and make money has a way of making an adult feel like a child. Think long and hard about entering …

“Arguing Is Pointless”

Life's Best Advice

From Peter Bregman of the Havard Business Review Blog Network titled Arguing Is Pointless …

“Think about it. You and someone have an opposing view and you argue. You pretend to listen to what she’s saying but what you’re really doing is thinking about the weakness in her argument so you can disprove it. Or perhaps, if she’s debunked a previous point, you’re thinking of new counter-arguments. Or, maybe, you’ve made it personal: it’s not just her argument that’s the problem. It’s her. And everyone who agrees with her.

In some rare cases, you might think the argument has merit. What then? Do you change your mind? Probably not. Instead, you make a mental note that you need to investigate the issue more to uncover the right argument to prove the person wrong.”

Arguing for the Sake of Arguing: Pointless Debates

Ah, the never ending debates.

Back to the subject at hand, debates. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion right? And the beauty of free speech is that you can say whatever you want to pretty much whoever you want with the only repercussion being other people cursing you out and telling you why you’re wrong and they’re right. The problem with most…

The genius of women, or the capacity to love others more than you love yourself.

So yesterday, we talked about the fact that men invent and produce almost all of the really useful things that make our modern lives so very pleasant. All of the major revolutions in human history have been dreamt up and accomplished by men: the printing press, the textile loom, antibiotics, anaesthetic, cars and computers.

Throughout history, women have contributed very little to the great leaps forward in human achievement.  Oh come on, that’s not even controversial.  Even Caitlin Moran (I can’t help it – she’s so cute!) acknowledges that women really haven’t done a whole lot in terms of building bridges and discovering nuclear fusion. She’s worth quoting at length.

Even the most ardent historian, male or female—citing Amazons and tribal matriarchies and Cleopatra—can’t conceal that women have basically done fuck all for the last 100,000 years. Come on—let’s admit it. Let’s stop exhaustingly pretending that there is a parallel…
