Does anyone like going to the doctor? It seems like every time you go to see one, they tell you to stop doing something cool, like night swimming, living off of triple thick shakes and/or night swimming in triple thick shakes. The Hippocratic Oath is all about doing "no harm," and they've got the gall to boss you around, discouraging life's glorious excesses. Who needs that?
What? All of us? Or we'll keep feeling terrible and maybe die?
I supposed we should express some gratitude as doctors have the wherewithal to handle patients reluctant to take orders, particularly when our bodies need the occasional surgical overhaul. Without them, we'd all just be giving each other bad advice, and who needs that kind of accountability?
