A book about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

My friend DiamonDie (Maija Haavisto), who is also a member of the Hugi Core, has written a medical textbook about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. As a medical student, I find that very interesting. It lists more than 250 medications for CFS. In the textbook I'm currently studying (internal medicine), there's just one page about this disease.

Strange dreams

Last night I dreamt that an elementary school mate of mine asked me whether it's possible that gastroenteritis causes haematoma. I was embarrassingly not able to answer it in the dream. (Haematoma results from damage to a blood vessel, which shouldn't happen in gastroenteritis.)

Some days ago I dreamt that Paralax was spending a term in Finland as an exchange student.

I also dreamt that a politician had saved a girl's life by treating her medically.

I also dreamt of having a lot of new video game consoles.

Magic numbers

Yesterday I noticed a magic number relation: The German Empire was founded in 1871. The First World War ended 47 years later, in 1918. The Second World War ended 74 years later, in 1945.
