reverse graffiti

super_blaze sent me this one & it's too good not to share (although, to be honest, it has little to do with medical school!). apparently an artist in sao paulo decided to make a statement against the city's extreme pollution by "erasing" the dirt and grime in city tunnels to create his art. the full story can be found here. but the video which follows sums it up best. enjoy!

Now THAT is creative, productive activism at its best.

I had to laugh at your comment about the internet as a time sucking vortex in one of your earlier posts. I, too, am a med student easily distracted by the internet. Tonight, I saw that you are the only other blogger out there described as an OMS I medical student. Well, I clicked on your blog when I should be studying the cranial nerves right now. Just another victim of the vortex, I guess.

Good luck with all your studies!

a little disclaimer...

i'm a medical student. just a student. so please, don't take anything i say too seriously. remember that i was an english literature major as an undergrad, so there is much fiction to be found in these pages. do you think i'm telling a story about you or your illness? more likely, you're tapping into my sense of "everyman"--that is, your story resonates with what i write here because it's not so uncommon after all. need help? please, please go see your physician. <--i'm not her. yet. ;-)
