Brains Igor, BRAINS!!!

Saw my first brain surgery today. Not nearly as exciting as I had been led to believe. Hard to see anything, and it all looks the same, and everything bleeds lots (which contributes considerably to the previous problems of not being able to see anything and it all looking the same).

Suppose I can scratch neurosurgeon from the list too. It’d be OK at a push as a career (they do get to play with some really pretty cool technology) but I wasn’t sufficiently inspired by the procedural stuff, and many the outcomes for the patients I’ve seen on the wards would require you to have either a really thick skin or a huge daily dose of Zoloft.
