One could imagine that if we start having the government run healthcare, we might have problems getting in to see doctors. And when people have a problem that they can't get someone to solve for them, they do the next best thing: turn to the Internet.
This is what happened at work today. A co-worker of mine asked if I would look up the symptoms of a peptic ulcer. So, being the awesome co-worker that I am, I did. No, I didn't turn to WebMD. That is a scary, scary website which makes me think I have cancer or a third arm every time I visit it. So I visited the website which has the answer to everything.
So I looked up peptic ulcers and read through the symptoms, which as it turns out, contain such charmers as "vomiting blood" and "tar-like stool".
I really don't think my co-worker has an ulcer.
Which I told him. And I added that the next time he thinks he might have something that needs medical attention he should contact a doctor and not a co-worker with a BA in Creative Writing with access to the Internet.
Here's the the future.
