At no point in the history of the world has WebMD ever been the slightest bit useful to anybody.

WTF phrases in that article:

She Googled "how to treat gunshot wounds" and went to self-diagnosis website WebMD rather than the emergency room to treat her son


The entire incident was caught on an in-home surveillance tape

I used a variety of web based diagnostic tools to figure out I had a blocked Sphincter of Oddi.    Went to the ER (SEEK MEDICAL HELP IMMEDIATELY!) and told the doctor the symptoms I was experiencing, that I had recently had gall bladder surgery, and what seemed most likely to me.   She agreed that it was probably exactly that, and ordered up an ultrasound.   It was exactly that.  

I suppose all I really accomplished was sparing myself a long list of questions about symptoms.   I did get two big-assed vials of morphine pretty much immediately.   It still hurt.
