I was desperately looking for cellulitis. I never did see it. Some say I'm still looking for it to this day.

welpdedelp  Same lol. A question I had was I thought lymphangitis was supposed to precede some sort of injury, obv not lol but was the lymph node the main giveaway? +1
keyseph  I think the key distinguishing features are the red streaks leading to an area of local lymphadenopathy. Otherwise, cellulitis would be a viable option if given. +6
charcot_bouchard  Cellulitis can lead to lymphangitis +1
notyasupreme  I thought lymphangitis is seen more with erysipelas +

I'm relatively sure that most people were 50:50 between bleach and drain cleaner.

letsdothis  Yeah, I spent maybe like 20 seconds on this question. I knew I wouldn't be able to reason this one out. +1
lilmonkey  Same thing. But then I remembered myself using bleach wipes with no gloves - didn't get any ulcers or even irritation. But drain cleaner is really strong shit as it can dissolve ("ulcerate") all this solid gunk. +3
charcot_bouchard  At least those chores paid off finally +5

"No bruits are heard over the neck"

I swear I cannot bang my face hard enough against a wall.

letsdothis  Me too. Un-friggin-believable +1
cinnapie  Yo @seagull I am a huge fan. I am a huge fan. I think we gave step 1 around the same time and now Step 2 CK. Anyway, keep up the good work, we need someone like you to add some humor to this fucking shit. Not all heroes wear capes!!!! +5
sheska  if no bruits then why should we do a carotid duplex goddd +
tinylilron  bruits probably are not sensitive or specific enough... duplex is probably a better test +3
lindasmith462  "everything is in the question for a reason" I tell myself "not everything is a trap. how many questions have you gotten wrong because you thought something was a trap? go based whats on the question for once self!" NBME going Admiral Ackbar on my butt over here. +2
