    I'd be inclined to think the same, but his track record shows otherwise - "In 1987, Carson successfully separated conjoined twins, the Binder twins, who had been joined at the back of the head (craniopagus twins). The 70-member surgical team, led by Carson, worked for 22 hours. Both twins survived."

    Impressive. It's amazing how dogma can affect that the ability of people who are obviously naturally intelligent to believe some pretty irrational stuff.

    He should probably stick to surgery rather than politics, though.

    Trump, Falling in Polls, Holds Brief Live Q&A on Twitter

    • Filed Under: U.S., Donald Trump, Twitter
      The Donald Trump phenomenon is showing signs of obsolescence since the second Republican debate. Trump got ahead in the polls in no small part by dominating the Internet’s nanosecond news cycle, and in this spirit he announced a live Twitter Q&A Monday morning, under the hashtag “AskTrump.”

      It was hard to tell whether the event went according to plan. For about 30 minutes, Trump posted a series of 20-second videos showing himself in Twitter’s New York City office, answering questions that were mostly about his political priorities.

      “I will totally protect Israel,” the mogul told the first respondent. “Believe me, Israel will be very, very secure.”

      Try Newsweek for only $1.25 per week

      Using his signature hyperbole, he repeated the word tremendous several times in describing America’s problems, while delivering promises to reduce student debt, eliminate homelessness through job creation and secure the border. As has been his strategy, Trump focused on connecting emotionally and repeating his message, rather than offering suggestions about how he would accomplish his agenda. He did direct one participant to a policy outline on Second Amendment rights, recently posted.

      He also said that he would give up his presidential salary if elected. Trump has primarily funded his campaign using his fortune, and he claims to only take small donations.

      #AskTrump was trending on Twitter in the aftermath of the session. A large number of questions posted to the site were framed negatively, accusing Trump of everything from racism to sexism to idiocy.

      Other questions were clearly meant to troll the candidate.

      After the session was cut short, Trump's Twitter account posted a photo of the candidate listlessly surveying the tweets about him. To continue his rampage through the election cycle, he may do well to provoke another controversy.

    But there has never been a study saying Paxil is good for teenagers. They lied about that. If they could come up with som empirical evidence to back their position that's it's good then they wouldn't have had to lie.

    I never used to think it was possible, but Sanders is making a real move. He was down by 50 points on July 1st, it's now 18 (which is still huge).

    However, he's competitive in Iowa, ahead in some polls there. He's ahead in NH. He's way behind in South Carolina tbf. Actually good get a lot closer than I thought.

    Surgery is a rather mechanical wing of medicine.

    In my experience, general practitioners are a bit more humanistic. They see the whole person, speak to them in health and sickness, often discuss the larger issues of a person's life as they relate to their health.

    By contrast, surgeons are engineers. They work on bodies, not people. The ones I've met are egotistical, unemotional, lacking in bedside manner, the kind of people unable to consider other options of anything.

    When my wife needed orthopedic surgery, she went to the ortho surgeon to get checked out and previewed for surgery. The surgeon, one of the best in the south with a list of celebrity athlete clients, looked her straight in the eye, grabbed her post-pregnancy belly with both hands, shook it and said, "I'm not doing a thing until this is gone." :smashed:

    Point being, the field doesn't seem to attract holistic thinkers.

    Yeah youre right. Surgeons are pricks, dont need much intelligence to be one - it's manual dexterity (and a lot of the time not even that much), maybe daring and recklessness are important traits (but then they've always got the anaesthetist next to them if shit really hits the fan).

    In the UK they only became "doctors" fairly late on in their history and were barbers by trade - that's why when you pass your membership exams to enter The Royal College of Surgeons you go from Dr. back to Mr.

    After the operation they dont give a fuck, and dont know how to manage any medical post-op complications and it's the juniors having to deal with it.

    Really!

    I knew they were Mr., but didn't know the history of it. Amusing:

    Why are surgeons in the UK called Mr/Miss/Ms/Mrs, rather than Dr?
    In most other parts of the world all medical practitioners, physicians and surgeons alike, are referred to as Dr while in the UK surgeons are usually referred to as Mr/Miss/Ms/Mrs. This is because, from the Middle Ages physicians had to embark on formal university training to gain possession of a degree in medicine before they could enter practice. The possession of this degree, a doctorate, entitled them to the title of ‘Doctor of Medicine’ or Doctor.

    The training of surgeons until the mid-19th century was different. They did not have to go to university to gain a degree; instead they usually served as an apprentice to a surgeon. Afterwards they took an examination. In London, after 1745, this was conducted by the Surgeons' Company and after 1800 by The Royal College of Surgeons. If successful they were awarded a diploma, not a degree, therefore they were unable to call themselves 'Doctor', and stayed instead with the title 'Mr'.

    Outside London and in the largest cities, the surgeon served as an apprentice like many other tradesmen, but did not necessarily take any examination. Today all medical practitioners, whether physicians or surgeons have to undertake training at medical school to obtain a qualifying degree. Thereafter a further period of postgraduate study and training through junior posts is required before full consultant surgeon status is achieved. Thus the tradition of a surgeon being referred to as Mr/Miss/Ms/Mrs has continued, meaning that in effect a person starts as Mr/Miss/Ms/Mrs, becomes a Dr and then goes back to being a Mr/Miss/Ms/Mrs again!

    I bet Trump has a tremendous surgeon.

    Knew the barbers bandages thing but didn't realise surgeons weren't really docs. I thought they were like premiere league doctors.

    Always heard off mates in the NHS they treat most staff like shit cos they think they're superstars or some shit. TMYK

    Had this exact kind of thing with my surgeon (orthopedic, knee) . Very blasé, saying that I will be fine to be discharged 2 hours after surgery, when 5 hours later I was still absolutely fucked from it all. He spoke to the nurses as if they were some sort of sub-human minions and the physio said to me 'please don't tell him (the surgeon) that I've told you to do these excercises (for rehab) as he might not agree with what I've told you' ...lol. since found out that a friend of a friend has to work with him in theatre and that he's universally hated for talking to juniors and nurses like crap.
