I just stumbled on a funny reminder of the past ....

We are cleaning out junk from the house, and I encountered a stack of textbooks from med school that I have not looked at for years. They are all rather outdated and useless but we never quite got rid of them.

This particular book is significant because I noticed (or thought I noticed) something that most of my classmates did not notice (or did not admit to noticing). Or maybe I just imagined it? I'm curious what others think about the cover design of this text.

Certainly in context....

Might be subliminal...

but it certainly seems appropriate, so maybe it was intentional.

On a side note... I won't be satisfied in computers/internet until someone devises a way to search by visual cues.

Probably a copy of this and others going

back to the 40's in my father's collection. I could pose it to him. I'm sure some will view the graphic with a bit of a smirk. But I did notice something else in the url that was interesting. "~sirosler"? I suspect you've been so often asked if you're related to the man that you've adopted him into the family. Happy

No relation at all ...

But then, "Bill Osler" isn't my real name. After I allowed my real name to appear in a national magazine by expressing my opinion that most recreational drugs should be legal I was inundated by drug seekers from all over central NC. I think it took 3-4 YEARS before the problem subsided. I decided that I would avoid using my real name for public/searchable things like forums. In the process I acquired a couple of Osler-related user names, which allows me to post things like that image without giving away the real identity.
