Welcome to the internet's busiest one-person medical site. I'm Ed, "the pathology guy". He's not a postmodernist but he's an experienced lecturer and autopsy pathologist and an all around cool cat.

"Whenever I am tempted to call anyone else stupid, I put it in perspective by remembering all those years when I could have had my flat-top crewcut."

That's certainly an interesting way of looking at life.

When does this guy sleep?

SomethingAwful, a left-wing satirical site, actually honored this page as their "awful" site of the day. I enjoyed the joke more than anybody else, and only wish I were as good-looking, romantic, or versatile they'd have you believe! Thanks for the traffic!

He seems to have a good attitude.

Yeah, mine too. I had to restart firefox in order to make my comment about the interior page.

Well, it's not a pretty site but the scope of Ed's interests, intellect and energy leap off the page.

It also made me think that much of the energy put into Metafilter gets wasted because things fall off the front page so quickly. Think of what Metafilter could be if there were some way of retrieving the most fabulous links posted here.

Why don't we institute some kind of rating system? Or have a page where we can nominate links as all time favorites and require 50 or 100 of us to agree before the links go there?

Not the best web page in the world, but seems like a pretty okay guy.

I'm with notmtwain on this one. He's obviously not a designer or webmaster, but it's obviously because he's focused all his time on other important things in his life. I mean, for all the cool flash pages in the world, this guy probably has more useful and valuable information than a good portion of those combined.

You obviously haven't seen a site designed by Velvet Elvis.

Interestingly enough, he believes he might have the XYY karyotype.

"If you know about Christianity mostly from hearing televangelists or fire-and-brimstone preachers, you might get the idea that Jesus Christ is our "savior" mostly from our being arbitrarily and atrociously punished after death just for acting like human beings. This never seemed reasonable to me, and if it were true, you'd expect to find it stated explicitly somewhere in the Bible. It's not there. I'm told that the Greek ψυχη means as much "life" as it does "soul". Among other things, following Christ as my Lord has saved me from wasting my life in vanity, greed, malice, meaninglessness, whining, sensuality, and despair. It's made all the difference."

I like the cut of this guy's jib. He seems like a righteous dude, plus he's a dead ringer for William H. Macy.

Thanks for posting this, pieoverdone. He seems like a good guy, and a genuinely good Christian.

Something Awful is a left wing site? How can he tell?

I'm taking nursing patho this semester. His notes are a bit hard to find at first, but solid and really helpful. Thanks for the link!

From his site: If 47 years on this planet has taught me anything, it's that making good decisions (for yourself and others) begins with looking at the world as it really is, taking elaborate precautions against kidding ourselves.

Yes. Applies to all aspects of life.

From his site: Playboy(link). My politics and my romantic side, though not my lifestyle. My mother's father was a friend of Hugh Hefner's in the 1950's, and this magazine -- now mainstream -- is something of a family tradition. This link is placed without apology to either the Right or the Left.

Mmmm, Playboy being a family tradition. Just dream of the Christmas presents...
