Importance of Second Opinion and experience

Importance of Second Opinion and experience

Second Opinion!

The doctor said, 'Harry, the good news is I can cure your headaches.
The bad news is that it will require castration.

You have a very rare condition, which causes your testicles to press
On your spine and the pressure creates one hell of a headache. The
Only way to relieve the pressure is to remove the testicles.'

I was shocked and depressed. I wondered if I had anything to live for.
I had no choice but to go under the knife. When I left the hospital, I
Was without a headache for the first time in 20 years, but I felt like
I was missing an important part of myself. As I walked down the
Street, I realized that I felt like a different person. I could make a
new beginning and live a new life.

I saw a men's clothing store and thought, 'That's what I need... A new suit...'

I entered the shop and told the salesman, 'I'd like a new suit..'

The elderly tailor eyed me briefly and said, 'Let's see... Size 44 long.'

I laughed, 'That's right, how did you know?'

'Been in the business 60 years!' the tailor said.

I tried on the suit it fit perfectly.

As I, admired myself in the mirror, the salesman asked, 'How about a new shirt?'

I thought for a moment and then said, 'Sure.'

The salesman eyed me and said, 'Let's see, 34 sleeves and 16-1/2 neck.'

I was surprised, 'That's right, how did you know?'

'Been in the business 60 years.'

I tried on the shirt and it fit perfectly.

I walked comfortably around the shop and the salesman asked, 'How
about some new underwear?'

I thought for a moment and said, 'Sure.'

The salesman said, 'Let's see... Size 36.

I laughed, 'Ah ha! I got you! I've worn a size 34 since I was 18 years old.'

The salesman shook his head, 'You can't wear a size 34. A size 34
would press your testicles up against the base of your spine and give
you one hell of a headache.'

Renu October 01, 2011  

superb:)..even otherwise I think before going under knife, one must take min. three opinions.

Chez October 01, 2011  

Seems that second opinion, coming from the 'right' source, is invaluable :)

aativas October 01, 2011  

If second opinion contradicts the first, people generally go for the third and fourth and so on.. and thus get caught into the circle. The option could be to explore alternatives!

There were 3 brothers. They had 5 balls in total. There were 3 children between them.
Some requirements:-
1) Do not discuss about number of balls either directly or indirectly.
2) Do not rack brains out as to who is the father of a child.
3) Do not give a ball to the world.
