    While generally, I believe in creationism and to a lesser extent evolution, for example microevolution where you get distinctions within the same species like you know border collies, poodles, etc.

    I can't help but think of how monkeys groom eachother, you know? I wonder if it's some kind of thing like, I don't know, something like that.

    I love wounds and abscesses. I also observed a penile implant and that was pretty cool. Not a fan of the sputum, though. Or when you cath someone and it comes out like pudding? I could stare at that forever b/c I am so amazed that can actually happen.

    I'm with student. I LOVE starting IV's EXCEPT on HIV patients. I totally lose all confidence when I can't pull my fingertip off my glove to feel the vein (even if they are sticking out at me!)
    Other than that I LOVVVVVE stickin people!

    I love it when we lance a big sebaceous cyst. I think it is so cool when all of that gunk comes out. Now, I don't want to touch it, I just like to watch. Totally gross huh.
    I am still waiting to see maggots used in a pressure ulcer. That would be neat.

    How 'bout ear wax extraction? It is amazing how much ear wax can be in a person's ear!

    Also, what about nasal packing? Again, how does it all fit?

    Have to say I love starting IV's too. I get such a sense of satisfaction when I feel that little pop and see the flash; I even like advancing the cath off the needle.

    Ever been caught checking out someone's veins in public?

    "Really Miss/Sir, I wasn't checking you out I was just admiring your veins".

    I used to work in a place with teens who would stick ANYTHING they could in their arms... glass, plastic, pieces of CDs, pencil shards... anything. Also in their ears. While I didn't like that they were doing that, there was a weird thrill to grasping the tip of some glass with some tweezers and pulling- and out comes a 4-inch piece. There was also a lot of nausea.

    In a trauma, they cracked his chest, no blood because it was all in his belly. His lung fluttered out the hole every time he was bagged. Very weird, but strangely fascinating to watch.:uhoh21:
