DAYTON, OH—Voluntarily surrendering the remarkable talent that gave her profound insight into the true nature of existence, the only person with the ability to see the world for what it actually is has started taking antidepressants, sources confirmed Thursday. Like a divine seer who blinds herself rather than face the overwhelming light of truth, Ingrid Pearson—the 28-year-old account manager and sole individual capable of seeing through the facade of joy and meaning human beings project upon their lives—reportedly relinquished her unmatched perceptivity by filling a prescription for Zoloft from her primary care physician. According to sources, Pearson had carried the burden of her vast wisdom from her teenage years up until this week, when the daily 50 milligram dose of her medication began to correct for her brain’s serotonin deficiency. At press time, accounts confirmed Pearson had already capitulated to the cosmic farce of humanity by enjoying a night out with friends instead of brooding over the cold and vast nothingness of the universe.

Medical Professionals and Bystanders Share the Weirdest Pregnancy Misconceptions They’ve Witnessed

You don’t need to be a doctor, nurse or midwife to know where babies come from. That said, some people are way too old, and in some cases have too many kids, to not know the most basic information. How are people so bad at this. It’s okay when kids ask hilarious questions in sex-ed because they’re just learning, but this is too far. People have strange relationships with their doctors, going as far to deny really WTF stuff.

Pfizer Unveils New Prescription Medicine To Help Adults Quit Sitting

NEW YORK—Touting the new medication’s ability to assist in cessation of the unhealthy activity, pharmaceutical giant Pfizer unveiled a new prescription medicine Thursday to help adults cut down on and eventually quit the practice of sitting. “We at Pfizer are proud to announce the rollout of SitoDerm, a low-dose transgluteadermal formulation designed to help the thousands of Americans who want to avoid the debilitating effects of being seated but need some help dealing with habituation,” a press release from the corporation read in part, also noting that the medication is delivered through a flesh-colored extended-release patch placed on the buttocks, and is prescribed in variable doses depending on the severity of the patient’s sitting habit. “Sitting, whether a simple lean or a full-on slouch that occupies an entire reclining chair including the arms, is a dangerous activity leading to muscular atrophy, spinal deformation, and even heart disease, contributing to the deaths of dozens of Americans every day. Clinical trials prove our patches reduce semi-supine cravings, readjusting brain chemistry to resist the sitting urge. Over 70% of our subjects ceased sitting in six months thanks to SitoDerm.” Pfizer also notes that the side effects of SitoDerm include excitability, rectal pain, musculoskeletal stiffness extending from the lower back to the knees, and occasional suicidal ideation.

Ignorant Anti-Vaxxer Challenges Doctor On Twitter And Loses

New York State recently got rid of its religious vaccination exemptions, forcing students who want to attend school to receive all mandatory vaccinations. The move has caused uproar among anti-vaxxers who believe their rights are being violated and that vaccinations cause autism, and in some cases, even death. One of our favorite things to do is watch ignorant anti-vaxxers get owned, and New York’s new laws have provided ample opportunity for this kind of carnage to occur. In this instance, somebody posted a melodramatic tweet about an un-vaccinated child crying because he was kicked out of school, and folks started railing into him. While we feel bad for the kid, we greatly enjoyed this opportunity to watch an apparent troll (who happens to have a PhD) school a woman who appears to believe that Lisa Bonet (also anti-vaccination) is some kind of medical/scientific authority. If you like this exchange you can check out the thread in its full glory right here.

Medical Professionals Share the Dumbest Things They’ve Had to Explain To People

Doctors, Nurses, certified nursing assistants, pharmacists, and anyone even  tangentially related to medicine constantly have to talk to people who have no basic understanding of how their own body works. Patients will do stupid things, lie, and even deny the most WTF stuff. It’s kind of sad to think about where we’d be without medical expertise, and it’s flabbergasting to see what people think is healthy behavior.

Strange Things People’s Bodies Do That Aren’t Quite Right But Not Worth A Doctor’s Visit

Incredible Breakthrough: Researchers At The Mayo Clinic Have Successfully Switched A Man With A Moose

Medical science is advancing by leaps and bounds with every passing day, and this story is just another incredible example of what our innovative researchers can do: A team at the Mayo Clinic has successfully switched a man with a moose.

Just astounding!

The breakthrough came from a group of physicians and scientists at the Applied Biomechanics Lab at the Mayo Clinic, who have spent almost 10 years working to find a way to safely and completely replace an adult man with a 1,200-pound moose. In the project’s early stages, the scientists made a critical discovery when they realized that by tying a rope around a moose’s neck, they would be able to lead it into a laboratory inside which a human male research subject would be waiting. The team then spent the next several years working towards developing never-before-used medical technology consisting of a bell, a dead rat, and a big arrow—the use of which has allowed them to consistently entice a moose to stand inside a room where a man had once been standing, while simultaneously moving the man outside the room to stand where the moose had previously been. Today, in 1,000 separate trials, they have successfully swapped a man and a moose with less than one fatality per 100 instances.

This is truly an amazing step forward for the entire scientific community!

“What we have now is a consistent way to put a moose where a man was—and we think this will have major implications for our ability to treat all kinds of issues in the human body,” said lead researcher Peter Swanberg. “For instance, this could mean that in the coming years, we will be able to take a man suffering from stage IV pancreatic cancer and swap him out with a moose with very few side effects. With a few more years of research, the same could be said for human women and children with all kinds of ailments”

Wow! This is incredible news. Kudos for the team at the Mayo Clinic for working so hard to make this amazing discovery. Let’s hope they keep it up and make some more strides at time goes on!
