The perils of medical research

Filed under: Geek-related issues — Lex @ 8:39 pm

A friend passes along the following IM conversation from her office:

Person1: anyone have cold medicine? I’ve got a stuffy head and sore throat. Free handful of candy for the first person who coughs up (ha, ha) some medication!Person2: Here ya go.

Person1: Thanks for all the drug offers. [Co-worker] came to the rescue with a new product, apparently still in the human trial stage, from [recognized brand name]. I’ll let you know if it works.

Person3: Let us know, also, if you grow horns or a third eye or something.

Person1: That’s supposing that I can still speak, of course. You never know with these human drug trials.

Person3: Good point. When I took part in one, they told me I might experience cramps or tremors in my extremities, but I think they were just bbbbbbbbbbulllllllssssssssss*******************g me.

I wonder if I could turn this into a paper for the Journal of the American Medical Association

Nah, probably not. Too reality-based.
