A learning experience
Discovery has some really great programs. Clearly I spend too much time infront of the tv, but I don't care :)

As well as Norm I now have found another great program - "The Operation". It's on discovery health and shows almost complete coverage of varied operations. It is so fascinating.

The other day an operation was being performed on someones brain to remove three anurisms. The surgeon was describing that with one wrong movement he could kill the patient due to the sensitivity of the brain region he was working in. On another patient, also having brain surgery (when the patient was conscious..omg) the surgeon was able to have a conversation with the patient but then by pressing a nerve in her brain he could completely alter her behaviour and cause her to have a mini fit where she loses her memory.
