Yay for people with too much free time

Posted in Iramville at 11:11 pm by Iram

I’ve been trying to learn all of the nerves and branches of the brachial plexus, which is the bundle of nerves and arteries and veins that runs down your shoulder, through your arm pit, and into your arm. The number of branches is ridiculous, and I have already spent several hours tracing and retracing each piece on a picture trying to remember what everything is called. Then, a classmate sent me a link called “Learn the Brachial Plexus in Five Minutes.” And it’s true! I learned the stupid thing in five minutes and can recite all the branches like a parrot. So yay for all the people that have too much time on their hands and don’t have anything better to do than to officially PUBLISH quick ways for medical students to learn complicated structures! Keep it up!

    Hello,
    Was setting up my wordpress account and realized that my name is already taken šŸ˜‰ But, I always blieved that Iram was a Persian word. Check the DSAL persian to english dictionary. On the other hand I could be wrong…
    It was great reading your blog and apologies for writing this in the comments section
    Cheers
    Iram

    Iram means paradise. The most well known reference in history (if you believe religion to be true) is the city of Iram which was destroyed by God because they tried to make the city a paradise on Earth. I thought her name was quite unique, but i guess i was wrong.

    And those people should have made you pay to do it. What, did they make some type of acronym or song for the names? Usually, a stranger or more perverse song is easier to remember.
