Things I learned from watching the news

1. There is a medicine out there that’s called ‘pandemrix’. It’s supposedly causing narcolepsy in children or something, but that’s not important right now.

Who came up with that ridiculous name? Pandemrix? Seriously? That sounds like what the Gauls’ doctor would be called in an Asterix comic.

And anyway, why associate the brand name of your medicine with exactly that what you should be trying to avoid? What’s next, Aidix? Cancrus? Hemmorhix?

2. There is a kid out there whose first name is ‘Lupus’.

Now, maybe I didn’t hear this correctly, but, if true, that’s just beyond stupid.
