    I'm considering steroids so I don't look so out of place when I start residency in July.... The other three guys starting in my program are beasts, as prototypically ortho as you can get.

    IQ + Bench Press Wt. > 300

    So really, it depends on your IQ.

    As an MS3 I weighed 175 and my 2RM was 315.

    Now I weigh more and can lift less. What a ripoff.

    I know someone who bench presses 600 lbs in my class (for a grand total of one rep). He's definitely taking your ortho spot.

    Oho so it's time for cock jokes on the ortho forum!

    I'm scrubbed in on a carpal tunnel release with an ortho attending and an upper level, and the attending is pimping the resident on the location of the median nerve at various points of the forearm.

    Attending: "So how deep do you think the nerve is right there?"

    Resident: "...A centimeter? Centimeter and a half?"

    Attending: "Oh, come on, *******. How thick is the whole forearm there?"

    Resident: "****, 3 inches?"

    Attending: "So the forearm is as deep as your cock is long, huh?"

    Resident: "Sir, if this lady's forearm were as deep as my cock she'd be like f***ing Popeye with compartment syndrome."


    This thread's getting better and better.

    If all else fails, he can always use his teeth to rip out the knee and insert the replacement at a later time.

    Funny the OP asks, I came into contact with an ortho residency director at my local gym and when he saw how much I bench pressed he offered me a spot as a PGY1 bypassing medical school, as an incentive he offered his wife to me as well. It was a hard decision, I am so confused on what to tell him!:scared:

    A classmate of mine also starting ortho residency wanted to give this line to interviewers who asked "why should we take you in our program?": "because I'll work hard, get along with people, and I won't truck your wife."

    Actually no it isn't, it's an up and coming bodybuilder named Frank McGrath. Check him out at Animalpak.com.

    Me at an interview:

    Program Director: "So, Dre, where do you see yourself in ten years?"

    Me (to myself): Don't say "Doin' your wife," don't say "Doin' your wife," don't say "Doin' your wife..."

    Me (out loud): "Doin' your...son?"

    It's funnier in the context in which I put it. Perhaps recognize an obvious pop-culture reference when it is intended to be recognized.

    Obviously I recognized the pop culture reference or I could not have called you oout, on trying to make us believe you are original. Get a clue son.

    I meant for it to be recognized. Read the post, "son."

    If I'd been trying to pass it off as my own I wouldn't have made such an obvious quote. I will ignore further asinine comments or any more calling me oout, as calling people oout is unproductive.

    I read it, and I recognized it and called you out (not OOut). No need for immaturity by responding to this post. I was merely teaching you a life lesson. Learn it and move on with your life, boy.

    1) DrDre was making fun of YOU for your spelling mistake. :rolleyes:

    2) Don't call random people on the internet "boy" and "son." Particularly not when they're older and more experienced than you are.

    3) Don't be so rude and disrespectful, period.

    1) Didn't realize that you need an invitation to participate in an open thread in an open forum. Oh wait. That's because you don't. :rolleyes:

    2) Who was being rude? I was just pointing out the obvious facts that you clearly missed the first time around.

    3) Jesus F'ing Christ, I'm a girl. How many guys do you know would have a picture like that for an avatar?

    It's probably because you're posting in an ortho forum. Obviously only guys would do so... oh, wait.

    Um, eww. But I agree.

    So how much does a girl have to bench press to get in? And considering I haven't lifted weights much since high school, I'm bad now. =(

    As long as you smile a lot, and wear a bikini to work, I don't think it should be a problem.
