Accidental Science

Last week on House, we learned that if you're in pain, and you experience new, stronger pain, the pre-existing pain gets pushed aside so your brain can concentrate on the new, more urgent pain.

This morning, I learned that if you have a truly hideous case of the flu, you can make your body forget about it for a few hours by falling down the stairs to your basement office so hard that the right side of your body, from jaw to kneecap, turns into a giant scrape-cum-bruise.

Now you know. And knowing is half the battle.
