About Indeterminate Causality

Indeterminate Causality is a collection of some of my comics, doodles, and sketches. It's a commentary on life, situations we all find ourselves in, the world of medicine, being a guy, and interpersonal interactions, with a slant towards making scenarios as amusing as possible. Updated Monday-Wednesday-Friday (I try, sometimes its difficult with school/exams and such).

Got Snow?

37 Got Snow

If you don't you should get some. The correct amount of snow is important for children to grow up learning to make snowmen, which, as we all know, is one of the best parts of being a child.

Surgeon Niceties

33 Surgeon Niceties

This was an interaction while demonstrating an Allen's Test to the class. She held it so long, I think there might have been some ischemic injury.

Well son, getting PETA to agree to that might be difficult, but it might be worth a shot.

Yes, I realize that if you add up the percentages it doesn't add to 100%. I got bored and decided I liked the pretty colors.

Well this is awkward.

You're never too old for poop jokes.

"And tomorrow we're going to be learning about copulation"
"Well fuck me"

Tuesday, December 7, 2010

CLEANUP IN THE HALLWAY! Gosh, this is fun.

Study Efficiency

14 Study Efficiency

Yea, I'm "Studying" at the moment. Yes I know, I'm about to get back to it.

Adaptive Response

Today in class we were talking about sensory receptors, and those that adapt slowly to stimuli and those that respond rapidly to stimuli. It reminded me of when I was a kid and this sort of scenario would occur.
13 Adaptive Response

Hey man, no need to get violent now, it's cool.

06 Kreb's Bicycle
