By the way. That was a neat (US usage) way to get the topic back to medicine, don't

This thread never was about medicine, unless you count the curative powers of smiling and laughing and dancing till you're dizzy

Faldage,

Only Lorenzo knows, and Lorenzo disappeared on October 19, 2000.

Ironic, isn't it, that the most-read thread on the medicine forum has little much to do with medicine?

Ironic, but perhaps not that surprising. A medicine thread will probably be of only superficial interest to other-than-physicians or paramedical or complementary personnel, presumably hoping [altruistically, of course] to share their knowledge. Things may be worth a quick read but not yield more that a superficial discussion. The topics of keenest interest will be too personal to generate a broad base of (public) responses...

Back to work!

No idea what I was thinking.

Doesn't matter. We all knew exactly what you meant :-)

EDIT: And it's probably not too hard to figure out what you were thinking, either -- whether to say "has little to do with..." or "has not much to do with..." and winding up saying both at the same time. (I'm sure there's a word for that!)

Or maybe just writing one and then re-writing the other, with incomplete editing
