  • Wow, that’s a whole lot o’ unnecessary drama over a few honest observations.

    I like the part where he talks about how much rough handling is involved in surgery. I’ve never performed surgery, but I *have* dissected a human cadaver, and let me tell you, those suckers is tough! On the inside, we’re like over-wrapped Christmas presents — you start eyeing the tin snips. (I’m not exaggerating. Connective tissue is some seriously tough stuff.)
