Entry #2

I'll animate your medical questions

2015-11-16 03:07:32 by Markface

So I've been doing med school for a little while now and thought I'd give this a go. I have a break coming up before I start up back at my uni/hospital and I've always wanted to do an animation that diagramatically depicts common medical questions I get asked. I came up with the idea after trying to explain vasovagal syncope (fainting) to a mate after he tobbled in a shopping centre a few weeks back.


So, if you have any curiosities about medicine/surgery then ask them here and I'll throw the best ones into the animation. When I say 'best' I don't necessarily mean the most interesting, but ones that people may be curious about.


Yes, even questions about dicks.

Tonsil stones. Perhaps dicks in relation to tonsil stones on the subject of physical removal.

Okay but seriously, I really love your work and I'm so glad you're still at it.

Markface responds:

You're such a sweetheart. :)

Tonsil.. how about how kidney stones are formed, or what happens when spinal discs attack (press against) nerves... yeah, painful stuff needs a context |:

If ive been severely beaten by a dick, how many band aids would it take to heal my wounds?

(yes, the dick was sharp, so i have knife wounds and shlong marks all over me)

Goddamnit I'm not spontaneous enough for this.

Why would I go for a huge piss than need to pee more right after

Umm, well... I have one. Why is the immune system stupid enough to attack the body?


2015-11-17 08:00:16

How about how food turns into nutrients that are absorbed and sorted out and transported around. I don't know how the body does that, really.

Why do males have nipples?

Why do women have hymens?

How do umbilical cords work?

Why do we have hair near our anuses?

Just a few to pick and choose from...

Why is it hard for people to fall asleep even when they are tired?

Causes of sleep apnea.

Tracheotomy might be genuinely useful, or how the Heimlich maneuver works.

But blown out discs and what happens once that shit presses on the sciatic nerve... I always wondered why grown men would scream without any obvious trauma. Then 4 years ago it happened to me, and I wonder no more |:
