Tough chicks are tough

It's behind a paywall so no link, but I was reading the Sunday Boston Globe and there's a story from the "On the Job" feature about a tattoo removal nurse.  She explains that tattoo removal is a growing business as adults seek to reverse their impulsive Spring Break decisions.  Here's the funny part of the story: this nurse explained that a local anesthesia can be applied before the (painful) process.  Most of the men who refuse the Lidocaine change their mind while most of the women do not.  The nurse quips: that's "why the women have the kids."  Heh.

My advice to anyone considering medical school these days is to plan to specialize in Dermatology or Otolaryngology.

A lot of deaf and tattoed 30-40 year olds are going to need treatment between 10 and 20 years from now. Much of it will not be covered by insurance, either.
