    mates? I was just watching a program on the Discovery Channel and the point of the program is that most animal behavior can be explained by the fierce competition for desireable mates. Is that what med school really is all about. To make ourselves attractive to an equally attractive mate? Is med school really a mating ritual?

    If it is, then that's one more thing I suck at in medical school. :( ;)

    Yeah, that sums it up. I'm trying to get my MD just to date a girl. Man, requirements to procreate with the best egg-producing gals are just so high these days. What's up with that? Wait, I got it! If I fake my fitness (ie medical degree), I can increase my chances of getting a mate. This means wearing scrubs all the time with fake blood stains, toting around a stethoscope, acting overly gunner-ish, and, of course, obtaining a laserjet printout of a medical degree. In yo' face natural selection....you punk.

    For South Asians it kind of is: If you're a doctor you can have your pick of anyone, and won't have to settle for a skinny guy straight from the motherland who keeps coconut oil in his hair and only wants you for your greencard (or, even better, your citizenship).

    My sentiments exactly.

    I really really hope this is a joke. If not, I guess it's added incentive to do well. :thumbup:

    lol, while I'm sure we'd all love to use our MDs to become Christian Troy wannabes (although arguably he's not quite that fit since he only has one son, but still, he's had so many partners that he has a special antibody only manwhores have [actual explanation in an episode!]), I don't think that's quite the reason I'm going to med school. After all, artsy types get all the sex anyways, and the people who tend to have the most kids don't tend to be stressed out MDs with no time to be at home.

    On the other hand...it does make you a much more attractive sperm donor if your description says you're a doctor...hmm...

    lol

    No, Med School is just preparation so you can get the Porche/Lexus/etc. That's the mating ritual...

    South Asian girls don't have to be docs so that they don't marry the skinny FOB. You just have to be hot like that American Idol Sanjaya's sister. I mean, she's a Hooters girl for crying out loud.

    Actually most guys don't want girls who are docs or dentists. Its most girls who want guys that are in those fields. The girls have a harder time finding someone if she's highly educated because it also means she'll have less time to spend with the kids 24/7 and possibly making more money then the guy.
