Lecture Notes

close

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 14 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 14 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

I know I’m a medical student and should have gotten over the laughing thing, but when one lecture has eighty-three pages of accompanying notes, I think I can be forgiven for amusing myself with these particular quotes…

“Smelly wind is not your fault”

“Worse still, some of these smelly gases are absorbed into the blood stream and excreted in the breath as well, so that you may smell at both ends: Be warned”

“If you think you have excessive flatus count every time you break wind – even the little silent ones – for a day or so. (If you break wind less than 40 times a day you are normal)”

“It’s natural to feel strongly about stools or faeces”
