I would probably be in law school. No wait, if that were true, I would already be a lawyer and making $120K. But I’m not a lawyer. Nope, I’m still a student and I definitely don’t make anything even remotely close to $120K. But I have no regrets about the choice I made (despite what I rant and rave about all the time here, which by the way, has more to do with grad school than med school). Besides, I can play lawyer on my Nintendo DS Lite. As a matter of fact, that’s what I did today instead of studying. After more hours than I care to admit to, I finally beat the rather addictive game called Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. It was quite fun though probably not at all realistic because the lawyers also played detective. It includes neat little features, like the fact that you can really play lawyer by yelling “objection” into the microphone if you have an objection to raise. You also get to play with a fingerprinting kit and luminol in the last case. It was a little slow and repetitive at times, but the detective work and evidence-gathering parts as well as the cases themselves were quite fun. I’m definitely looking forward to the sequel!

» Yum!  Now that’s something I can live with: eating curry to stave off cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease.  Researchers in Singapore found that people (aged 60-93) who ate curry even only occasionally scored higher on the Mini Mental Status Exam (MMSE) than those who never ate curry.  The curry spice, turmeric, contains curcumin, which has potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.  And the prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease in the elderly in India is fourfold less than that in the United States. # 0

» There’s a great article today about how the MIT Dean of Admissions wants to reduce admissions anxiety in teenagers.  How about parents getting off of their kids’ backs?  That would help.  But I do admire her for trying to create a friendlier system that might just ease the pressure enough to not give parents such reason to push their kids so hard.  Too bad it probably won’t happen any time soon.  And go ahead and try to tell Asian parents to stop pushing their kids to the point of insanity.  I dare you. # 0
