HailRobonia: Is that why my doctor "checks my oil" and gives me a "lube job"?
Tom_Slick: Wait does this mean I can have a race car bed?
dickfreckle: I'm approaching 40 and am terrified of having to start going to regular check-ups. There's also this whole thing about not liking fingers in my butt.Meh, everyone gets older. It'll happen to you, too.

Prank Call of Cthulhu: "Well, frankly I was afraid you'd condescend to me and then jab your hand up my butt," I replied, "and so far, we're half-way there." She didn't think that was funny. Not funny at all.
Aidan: May I recommend my doctor? He'd think that was hilarious.
Prank Call of Cthulhu: Aidan: May I recommend my doctor? He'd think that was hilarious.No, you may not. There's no way in hell I'm letting a dude stick his hand up my ass and turn me into a meat muppet. It's a slippery slope. You let one guy "putt from the rough" like that, and the next thing you know, you're singing showtunes, flying the rainbow flag, mooning over Judy Garland, and pronouncing "fabulous" with an overemphasis on the first syllable./I keed, I keed.
HailRobonia: I don't really understand the huge fear of "finger in the butt". Guys act like it's the most painful thing or something, but you've shiat out turds that are way bigger than a finger.
JackieRabbit: Stupid. Good call Subby. Meanwhile there is able evidence showing that check-ups and annual physical exams are a complete wasted of time and money. Only rarely do they reveal anything of value.
There's Always A Bloody Ghost: The way I look at it is, you have a choice. Go to the doctor once a year, have a full exam, find anything wrong early enough to treat. Or, do what most men do, don't go to the doctor until you have symptoms, now it's too late, six months later you're dead. Happened to my brother-in-law. He ignored his symptoms, put off tests twice, diagnosed with colo-rectal cancer in February, despite surgery he died in December. Such a waste, he should still be alive.
windowseat: I'm 50. I eat well, get plenty of exercise and take good care of my teeth. I go to the Doctor when I need one. I'm not interested in what I might have or spending the last years of my life dependent on pills, devices and constant nursing care.
Arcanum: Makes sense.Your body is a complicated tool that you need to maintain to be able to accomplish all the things that you want to do.Instead of thinking you can take whatever life throws at you and are tough enough to not need doctors, change your perspective to managing your sophisticated equipment to remain fully capable.
GoldDude: JackieRabbit: Stupid. Good call Subby. Meanwhile there is able evidence showing that check-ups and annual physical exams are a complete wasted of time and money. Only rarely do they reveal anything of value.I work at an employee-owned professional business.We pay for a reasonably-thorough annual physical (including things like measuring internal organs using ultrasound, and comparing year-to-year). They caught very early-stage cancers in two employees, both in their 30's. Caught before any physical symptoms, and both were successfully treated.It was strange enough that we paid to have our office air & walls tested to make sure it wasn't something environmental.So yes, most of the time annual physicals don't reveal anything. But that's probably because most of the time there isn't anything to reveal.Based on my experience, I'm going to continue my annual physicals.But you can feel free to be blissfully ignorant should there be something easily treatable now, but fatal by the time you show symptoms. Hope you at least have a decent life insurance policy to look after your loved ones.
beachboy: Doctor told me to stop cut back on Regular Cokes, candy and beer (Sad face)
Hand Banana: Didn't I read an article here a while back saying they had come up with a non-invasive alternative to Mr. Finger?
