    let's see now...open up a can of beet and dump it over your clasmate's head. then laugh hysterically for 1 min w/o breathing until you pass out or until someone takes you away to medical school to be examined. imperfect, but the best i can do at this hour.

    Well, if sexual favors don't do the trick then you'll be condemned to the Caribbean medschools. I understand they hold their anatomy labs on the beach-what with all those fat, balding 50-somethings running around practically nude they don't need cadavers to examine. But they will serve you plenty of margaritas beforehand so you think you're examining this month's Playmate.

    ***Shudder to think of your fate, man!***** Maybe you'd better consider another profession.

    You want to be a doctor because you want respect and power? You sicken me.

    You should want to be a doctor because of the hot chicks! Get your priorities straight!

    you are truly an a$$hole.... maybe your post was meant in jest, but imitating students who have a hard time with the English language is in poor taste and truly disgusting. Is that your perception of Asian immigrants and immigrants of other countries? That they all just want prestige? Maybe they are searching for prestige and respect because people like you put them down for their inadequacies adjusting to a new language and culture.

    Next time, think before you post and don't be a f*ckhead.

    In my experience, the best way to beet your classmates is to firmly grasp the beets by the leafy stalk (see figure 1) and repeatedly "smack them bitches upside the mufukin head" with the root portion.

    If that doesn't do the trick, I would suggest loading separated corn kernels into a bb gun and aiming for the eyes. I prefer to use "Niblets" (see figure 2) produced by the Green Giant - he's one baaaad mofo! :mad:

    Good luck and hopefully I'll see you in med school next year! :p

    Took lot of my tension off of this process...especially as a second time applicant it is nice to see humor.

    By the way, I don't think he is trying to imitate any immigrant...etc...etc.. It is just plain funny. Most of us have seen, heard, been, felt that kinda attitude

    seen, heard, been, felt? Well, golly gee, are u an Asian immigrant? Are all gunner pre-meds Asian immigrants who can't speak English? I see the humor in the gunner attitude... but there's no need to portray a gunner as someone who can't speak or write proper English.... that's just plain stupid and ignorant.

    okay, Mikdoc never even remotely implied Asian immigrant in what he said. Get over yourself and stop thinking everything people say must somehow be related to you. I've heard Greek, Russian, Nigerian, all sorts of people who speak broken English. Sure what he was saying was stupid and tasteless, but don't get all up in arms thinking he's insulting Asian immigrants specifically.

    "there's no need to portray a gunner as someone who can't speak or write proper English.... that's just plain stupid and ignorant."

    Why not? Ignorance isn't limited to any one particular group. Almost all of my relatives are immigrants who speak broken English. I'm an immigrant too. Some of the stuff my ethnic group is known for can be funny sometimes. It's just not that big of a deal.

    I have an idea of beeting all the other pre-meds. You must jump off a 40 story building w/o any parachutes and then your corpse can be sent to Harvard and use in Gross Anatomy. Of course, I am just playing but don't actually try that. It is a good way though. :laugh: :laugh:

    yes, it is true he never implied Asian immigrant-- I did, in my previous posts, suggest that I was referring to anyone from other countries, not just Asian countries. Furthermore, in another one of Mikdoc's posts, he referred specifically to Asian and Persian individuals... Whether the reference was of Asians or not is a moot point, the ignorance remains unchanged.

    not a big deal? how can you suggest that inequality and racism in America is not a big deal?

    pillowhead - While there was no indication from his post that mikdoc was targeting Asian immigrants specifically, if you read the thread in the PharmD forum that appears to have been the inspiration for mikdoc's post, you can see that he did indeed have Asian immigrants in mind when he made started this thread. I'm with Dr. Dodger Dog too, in protesting the broken English to portray a gunner.

    thanks mystic_b for providing evidence for the strong accusations made against mikdoc. I just don't like when people cry racism so fast when no evidence is shown to warrant such an allegation.

    It is definitely racist, it is just ambiguous which race this assh*le is making fun of.

    Hey, DDD, is one of the prerequisites for admission into Hopkins having no sense of humor? I didn't see anything in the OP's original post that had anything to do with Asians, or any other minority group. In fact, I've seen worse stuff on the Affirmative Action thread, and I don't think you've ever complained about that. It's all in good fun. No post on SDN is going to be responsible for setting back race relations 50 years, and neither will they be solely responsible for perpetuating ugly stereotypes. It's people like YOU, who have to find insults in things that are simply said in innocent fun who are responsible for perpetuating ugly stereotypes, in this case, the anal gunner who has his head lodged so far up his butt that he's afraid everyone is making fun of him, but, oh wait until he has some power and prestige! Then he'll show them!!

    Do yourself a favor and GET OVER YOURSELF. You used to be a cool poster, but I think you're developing another stereotype since you've gotten into Hopkins: the pre-med/med student with a God complex.

    I'm sorry, but I had to weigh in here... Speaking broken(or fluent) English(or any other language for that matter) is not an intrinsically racial characteristic. Someone with the exact same racial makeup as myself(caucasion/white/whatever the hell you want to label me) may very well speak poor English, if English is their second language. There are a myriad of reasons why English may be their second language, but their racial identity has next to nothing to do with it. Perhaps "culturalist" is a more apt word to use, if one must get up in arms over the original post.
    "Racist/Racism" are two terms used far too casually and often in today's quasi-intellectual world.

    Hey Entei,

    I couldn't agree with you more. When I initially read the original post, I was laughing pretty hard. I think this original poster had no malicious intention, but was just trying to poke fun at the pre-med stereotype that has perpetually existed on college campuses for years. I think people are being WAY too sensitive about this issue and have that rod stuck up their @ss a little too far. The original poster never mentioned anything in his/her post about Asians or Persians and if you are reading into this and are believing that he/she is specifically trying to bash your ethnicity/culture, than that is simply because of your inferiority/insecurity complex. And while we are on the subject of Asians and Persians, in my many years in college, I have seen these groups of people definitely to be the more ambitious, goal-oriented, and driven individuals who have mindsets of becoming doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, etc....there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. I'm Hispanic and I wish I could say the same for my culture/ethnicity, but I just can't make that sweeping statement in my case. The bottom line is, that hypertension, ulcer, or whatever you may develop from having such a delicate, sensitive personality and exploding at the first sign you think someone is "after you" really needs to chill out a little and really, you should try to find the humor in life rather than having a total meltdown about such insignificant, inconsequential things.

    Personally, I think people who walk around life with a big chip on their shoulder and have self-esteem/inferiority problems should really be catapulted off the planet (WHooooosshh). It really makes life a lot more difficult to deal with when you have to interact with these individuals...they always think someone is out to get them.

    What the f*ck are you talking about? If you don't know me, don't make those kinds of remarks about me. I am not making any personal attacks here. I am making comments respectfully and from the heart. I really resent individuals like you who say things like that about me. If you knew me, you would know I have one helluva sense of humor but some things just aren't funny. It's up to people like me to point that out, otherwise stereotypes are perpetuated.

    Get over myself? I used to be a cool poster? Where do you get off making remarks like that? If one person finds something offensive, he should be able to voice those concerns without being attacked on a personal level.

    As much as I want to attack you personally, I don't know you so I don't even have anything to say about you... Just cuz I got into Hopkins, you start assuming all these things about me--- that I'm a gunner--- that without being an anal retentive gunner I couldn't have gotten a 4.0 and a 40. It's people like you making these jealous assumptions that pisses the $hit out of me. Again, if you don't know me, just keep your f*cking mouth shut.

    DDD,

    Wow, such anger, bitterness, and hostility coming from you...and you are one of our our future MDs?? I can't believe it seems like your whole Thanksgiving day is being ruined just because of the posts on SDN. From reading your posts, I'm envisioning you now as a beat red tomato faced guy ready to explode. Please learn how to NOT take SDN so seriously for God's sake.

    No my thanksgiving isn't ruined... in fact, i'm making two turkeys as we speak... one in the RONCO Showtime Rotisserie and one in the oven.... ANYWAYS... the point is that I just want everyone on SDN to know that posting something offensive towards others will be responded to...especially unwarranted personal attacks.

    Believe me... having been through so many medical procedures and seeing so many doctors, I know what it takes to be one... and I'm going to be a damn good doctor, no matter what medical school I go to. So Jupiter1, god forbid in the future if you ever need a pediatric ent and you're in the LA area, look me up... Dr. Dodger Dog...

    I'm with you all the way, Dodger Dog. After reading his post in the Pharm forum and his post here, it's safe to say mikdoc was attacking Asians/Persians. Even if he was joking around, I still think it's inappropriate. You have to wonder how these preconceptions of Asians/Persians will affect his performance as a physician in the future.

    Happy Thanksgiving

    DDD, you present a very stressed-out, anal-retentive personality ON THESE BOARDS. True, I don't know you in real life, but unless you're some kind of schizophrenic, you probably have a personality on these boards that's similar to the one you "really" have in real life. You're quick to find fault where there is none. I don't know about any of the other posts that the OP has made, but I know that this one post that you took offense to in this thread doesn't have anything to do with Asians/Persians anymore than it has to do with Puerto Ricans or Russians or Eskimos. You're quick to come down hard on this guy because of some percieved slight when the post HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU. THAT'S what I take issue with, and THAT'S why I think you're arrogant. The fact that you're quick to mention your 4.0 and 40 MCAT just makes you seem like more of a selfish, shallow gunner who thinks the world revolves around him. The ONLY one perpetuating stereotypes around here is YOU!

    But, hey. No hard feelings. The last thing I want to do is make you angry, but if you want to make sure that people keep thinking of you as a "cool guy" then my unsolicited advice is that you should lose that chip on your shoulder. Happy Thanksgiving.

    Why don't you all take a look below at MikDoc's post on the pharm forum. Look at his comments toward the end about Asians and Persians. Judge for yourself:

    Look at his previous posts. Even if it is a jokes, the basis for it is just as bad as a joke that involves black criminals, money-laundering jews, lawnmowing mexicans or any other horrible racial stereotype you can have. If you look at his previous posts, you can see what kind of moron he is. Im really surprised he hasnt been given the boot from SDN for his racism.

    And all of you who are so quick to defend him for being funny, that too is extremely sad. Just because he is funny doesnt excuse him for being racist. If you think it is so clean a joke, maybe you should present it exactly in its form as your own at a med school interview...

    It is very distressing that so many people are rallying to this racist idiots defense, and I am extremely disappointed at several in the SDN community right now.

    i don't want to make sure people here keep thinkin of me as a cool guy... i could care less what other people think of me on this forum...

    the post has nothing to do with me? as an active particpator on this board, every post has everything to do with me... like it or not. It's a public forum and what's posted affects all who read it.

    um. . .what am i doing checking sdn on thanksgiving?? anyway. . .

    i think sometimes it's hard for non-minorities to realize how hurtful even subtle racial/ethnic barbs can be. . .
    all so often, we are told to 'lighten up' or 'not take things so seriously'. . .but as a society, just in the interest of consideration and understanding each other better, we *need* to take things seriously once in a while. . .at least in my opinion.
    love to all and happy, happy thanksgiving day!

    well put care bear ... it's easy to pass things off as a joke as your first instinct... but yeah... we need to take things concerning race and ethnicity seriously.

    DDD, I agree completely with your point of view. But did you really have to bust out the stats and the "I dont care what others think"? Im pretty sure Mikdoc didnt care much for what others thought either. That said, I agree completely with DDD's message, just not the way he presented it.
