Finally, you would probably be surprised by how many medical students have chronic illnesses or medical conditions. In my experience a ton of my classmates have medical stuff going on too; I sure for a lot of them it influenced their desire to go into medicine (I can think of any other reason that a group of young adults from relatively affluent backgrounds would be in disproportionately poor health).

David Foster Wallace has been the recipient of so much praise since his death in 2008 that perhaps it best to contribute a gripe. Wallace is a disquieting read.

Apis the bull was the animal manifestation of Osiris, and according to Diodorus Siculus (Diodorus the Sicilian) the Egyptians performed the following ceremonies “There should be added to what has been said what still remains to be told concerning the ceremonies connected with the sacred bull called Apis. After he has died and has received a magnificent burial, the priests who are charged with this duty seek out a young bull which has on its body markings similar to those of its predecessor; and when it has been found the people cease their mourning and the priests who have the care of it first take the young bull to Nilopolis, where it is kept forty days, and then, putting it on a state barge fitted out with a gilded cabin, conduct it as a god to the sanctuary of Hephaestus at Memphis.
