That was... very interesting. It wasn't really about him getting high, though, it was much more. Of course, he's kind of a nut, but we've all got something wrong with us, right?

yeah they really do awesome docs for some reason...

I could write thirty pages on why Vice is making a lot of interesting docs right now.

They made a short but pretty good documentary about my old roommate, back in like 2007-08. Think I should post it?

the universal symbol for healthcare or doctors always includes snakes dude dude dude due icosnpiracy

Species
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ophiuchus_%28astrology%29

"Ophiuchus holds apart the serpent which with its mighty spirals and twisted body encircles his own, so that he may untie its knots and back that winds in loops. But, bending its supple neck, the serpent looks back and returns: and the other's hands slide over the loosened coils. The struggle will last forever, since they wage it on level terms with equal powers""

13th sign of the Zodiac.

Yo dummies the caduceus is depicting the parasitic nematode Dracunculus Medinensis. Shit ain't snakes. But whatevs.
Schwa
(I am fully aware the caduceus is from the staff of Hermes. I'm pointing out that the symbol has shit to do with snakes or nematodes. Rather, it was a symbol adopted for arbitrary reasons. But we can invent whatever fun backstory we want.)

Species
Not that I believe everything Wikipedia says, but this "It is a short staff entwined by two serpents, sometimes surmounted by wings." Not Dracunculus Medinesis.

Maru
This is literally the stupidest explanation of the caduceus.

Jet Bin Fever
Though in modern day they use two serpents and the caduceus of Hermes much more frequently, traditionally the symbol of Asclepius (another medicinal symbol) was a single "fiery serpent" wrapped around a stick, which undoubtedly refers to the removal of Dracunculus medinensis by the method of wrapping the worm around the stick. So, you are both right, kind of. Maru is wrong though, because there are far stupider explanations out there.

And I took medical helminthology, protozoology, and several other parasitology courses and heard that caduceus and asclepius' staff were derived from Guinea Worms on several occasions. So, I'm inclined to believe my professors on this one.
