Another one bites the dust

As a physician, do not make the mistake of walking around a hospital humming the tune to, or worse, singing the lyrics to “Another One Bites the Dust” by Queen.

Fauvism

The term for the art style Fauvism was coined by an art critic who was shocked by the artists’ wild brush strokes, and referred to them as “Les Fauves” or “wild beasts”.

“Of all forms of caution, caution in love is perhaps the most fatal to true happiness.”

Bertrand Russell
