I've been monitoring the "fail" phenomenon for awhile, it is my favorite recent internet trend.

Wow! I enjoyed reading the fail blog as well as the thread. But with respect to the thread you quote yaah, I am flabbergasted that this is what premed education has been reduced to.

Where I went to college, there was a distinction between A and A+ but to do something unethical like that to try to bump one's grade from A to A+ is unbelievable.

OK, so I found a new website of FAIL and I was actually crying I was laughing so hard. So I moved all the related posts to a new thread, here.

http://www.shipmentoffail.com/

I highly recommend the "Highest Rated Fails" on the right side. #1 is killer.

Ahh glad Gutshot posted that link... I scanned a bit of that thread about the pre-med cheater. I'd like to dedicate this to him/her:

We must all remember, there is a great continuum between Epic Fail and Epic Win. We must always strive for Win, and avoid Fail.

Maybe we should at least make this pathology relevant.

Oh my god I was crying I was laughing so hard. I love the guy's determination to just irritate the crap out of someone.

We do need more pathology fail. Hard to come up with much more than the positive margin surgical fail though.

I was bawling in tears after seeing that picture.

But then the surgical FAIL and chemotherapy FAIL made that stop.

yaah, you have a lot of time on your hands today. Go start that private practice job now! :laugh:

AP enterprise: Activists complain that tobacco settlement money is being squandered

the billions that began flowing from cigarette makers to the states a decade ago also helped outfit the niagara county, n.y., golf course with new carts and sprinklers. And the money has gone toward college scholarships in michigan, tax breaks in illinois and ohio, a dog catcher in lincoln, neb., and jails and schools elsewhere around the country.

Of the $61.5 billion divided among 46 states between 2000 and 2006, only 30 percent was spent on health care, according to federal government accountability office data analyzed by the associated press. Less than 4 percent went to anti-smoking efforts.

Government fail!

Spectacular, and very public, pathology fail, please read these in the order they’re listed…

I am always surprised when journals actually print stuff like this, but it is interesting. I remember one that I randomly encountered a couple of years ago, it reference a Human Path article, here

To the Editor:

I was disappointed to read the study by Naeem et al[1] on c-kit expression in small cell lung carcinoma and its implications for prognosis. The studied neoplasms were from patients with all disease stages, including IA, IIB, IIIA, IIIB, and IV. The authors did not state whether these stages were clinical or pathologic. The use of adjuvant therapy varied and appeared to be unrelated to disease stage. Scoring criteria of c-kit expression were arbitrarily devised by the authors. The authors found that c-kit expression had a significant association with survival on univariate analysis. No multivariate statistical analyses that included adjuvant therapy, age, or disease stage were reported. Based on the results of a single univariate analysis, the authors concluded that c-kit was associated with survival. The authors then used this conclusion to suggest that “clinical trials may be considered for selected small cell carcinoma patients with c-kit expression.”

The authors, in my opinion, fell far short of providing sufficient, clear, strong evidence to substantiate their conclusions and claims, especially pertaining to the initiation of clinical studies. I also question and chastise the reviewers and the editor for the scrutiny given to this study when it was under review. Studies with this number of gaping methodology flaws and overstated conclusions have no place in reputable pathology journals.

Would have been perfect if he just ended the letter with FAIL. I don't know if I would ever have the balls to write such a letter to an editor.

Crappy science is everywhere, and it is up to the reviewers and editor to run defense and prevent this kind of garbage from making it to press. Both the article and the letter were amusing.

Not citing someone elses work (even out of ignorance) is somewhat different, but it still reflects poorly on the reviewers & the editor.
