Facebook Insanity

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

So, a friend of mine today, on facebook, posted a long story about some poor guy she works with, who was at the gym and suffered a serious heart event and died for several minutes before being revived. The guy was then taken to hospital where he spent days under observation, having tests done, stuff like that.

So, now comes the stupid part. Someone responds to the facebook comment saying that they dont agree with the diagnosis that the Dr’s made, and the guy should get a second opinion.

COME ON! The guy spent DAYS in hospital being poked and prodded and tested by highly trained doctors, cardiac specialists and who knows what else using million dollar machines to do the tests. And you expect him to say ‘Well thats not right, I want a second opinion because someone on facebook said so’…
