Despite the excellent job that the comic strip did on making the characters.. people seem to have a very diverse opinion on what the green organ is suppose to be.
1. Gallbladder: Of course this is the correct answer, people seem to either be empathetic towards him because he is so sad.. or spiteful because it caused them gallstones in the past.
2. Bladder: Yes, the bladder can have stones, usually the kidney stones that travelled down there which is shown in the other cartoon. But yeah.. our bladder isn’t bright green. And gallbladder and bladder do completely different things. The word “bladder” refers to an inflated or hollow bubble/sac, so that’s why they both have the word in it. To be more accurate we can call one urinary bladder, and the other gallbladder.
3. Kidney. Surprisingly this is one that has been constantly showing up. I think this goes back to “kidney stones” and just somehow jumping to the conclusion that since there are stones involved, that it must be the kidney. But yeah.. once again, completely different. And more importantly.. it says gallbladder in the cartoon.
I thought it was interesting to see how this comic had been read by many others. We should have anatomy as a requirement sometime in our high school education, not just as a chapter in a freshman bio class.
I’m just going to refer you to my past post! I am really not in the best position to answer these types of questions.. but nothing is impossible! Don’t let a few numbers get you down. If you want it badly enough, you’ll make up for it somehow :).
That being said.. I am going to take some time in the next few weeks going through my past posts and re-organizing all the hashtags and stuff so that everyone can better utilize the search function (including me). If anyone has any tips, let me know!
In my personal experience… yes. But I think a lot of people who are in the medical field experience some sort of psychosis. It might be the long hours that they dedicate to their profession, or just the sheer amount of books they have had to read to be where they are…
Psychos might not be the best word to describe everyone, but definitely there are some scary surgeons out there. I saw one that had a bad temper who would throw surgical tools across the room when things went bad. There was also another surgeon who was really nice to his residents and fellows.. but then during a staff meeting brought up the performance of one of his residents and made him repeat a year..
The bottom line is, surgeons are very directly involved with a patient’s physical health because of the invasive nature of their work. So they have to be a little bit crazy, and more importantly be all-in for their patients to provide the best level of care.
That being said, I hope I’m a psycho(tic) for my work one day.
That’s awesome that you are learning Korean! The only reason I speak it well is because I am Korean; and since my parents are first generation immigrants, I speak Korean with them.
If you ever have any questions, let me know through a pm and I can help you in any way possible! Maybe we can even become penpals in korean or something.
P.S. I really love your travel blog… Makes me want to get up and take off somewhere!
Sorry I’m getting so behind on posts and messages! I promise I will be back alive soon! I’m alive so hang in there!
