Don't laugh.  I was able to help my MIL out with her problem by watching an episode of House.  She was 84 at the time and having bouts with violent, uncontrollable diarrhea about once a month.  I took her to a few MDs about it, they gave her all the tests and finding no real reason for it they labeled it IBS and gave her some meds which didn't help.  Watched an episode of House where one of the back-stories was a guy with the same problem.  House told him to start smoking cigarettes. 2/day.  No more, no less.  SO I told her about it.  Of course, she was reluctant to try that at first, but she gave in after she had an accident in the grocery store.  Since then she's been smoking 1 in the morning and 1 at night.  Not gonna say it cured the problem, but along with the medication, instead of it happening once or twice a week, it now only occurs about twice a year.  She'll be 88 in June so we're not worried about any long-term effects that smoking may have on her.  AT this point it's about the quality of whatever life she has left.  She's now much more confident to leave her home and do stuff with us.  Just sayin'.

...55-year-old man who was in a serious and baffling decline thanks to an episode of hit medical television show "House".

Yikes, didn't know House could do that to you.

interesting tidbit at the bottom of the article...

Cases of heart failure as a result of cobalt poisoning are rare and have in the past mainly been observed in steel workers and heavy consumers of a specific Quebec beer that was found in the 1960s to have had cobalt sulfate added for foam stability.

anybody know of this Quebec beer?

Great, now IBM is going to start having Watson view episodes of House. Ever seen the crazy things a computer with an opiate addiction will do for its next fix?

So you're happy to be an abrasive, offensive, know-it-all drug addict? More power to you.

Abrasiveness is right next to bluntness, and why would I waste time being overly polite and cutesy? Being offensive only means that someone takes offense to what I say--and if you take offense, then I'm sorry you found me offensive. Being a know-it-all isn't a bad thing so long as you actually know it all. And the drug addiction? Fark it--I like my Vicodin. It lets me work.

You would 'waste time' because there is a difference in between being polite and dodging the point.  You can, as a matter of fact, be both polite and truthful.  Furthermore, I sincerely doubt you've earned the arrogance you purport to idealize: you probably don't make that much of a difference and are not that good at what you do regardless of your profession and proficiency therein.

Also, House helped me pass my pathology exam: thank fark for Congo Red dye and its association with red thongs on ridiculously attractive patients with the flu.

You know, of all the really bizarre and just plain gross stuff that Cronenberg puts in his movies, that shot of the bum kneeling in front of the TV, then looking up with that beatific smile, creeps me out the most.

According to my grad school professors, I've earned the right to a little arrogance given my work. So there's that.

*raises eyebrow*  so the guy almost died from the first attempt,  several friends argued in front of a white board.  Tried another cure- takes a pain pill.  3rd time around someone breaks into a house to see what's causing the disease. Then finally they figure it out.

Yeah, I can see how the show would be helpful. Excuse me while I go see if I can take a cancerous tumor out of a friend's leg with 2 ibuprofen and a chihuahua

It wasn't that they thought I was special--it was that they saw groundbreaking work in what I was doing. As in, an entire department was interested in my work because it had never been seriously done before.

Yeah...as is mine.  So what?  Being an insufferable ass makes you neither a prodigy or accomplished.  It just makes you insufferable.  And an ass.

Humility is a fantastic trait.  The most accomplished are usually the most nondescript and down-to-earth.  I have learned that through experience and hope to emulate it.  I'd recommend you do the same...but if you are too busy basking in the attention being given to you by one department in one university due to the views of a single academic, I completely understand.  Although in that case, you should supplement your vicodin regimen with carbamazepine.

Cheers.
