Jellybean 35 with Charles Bruen @ResusReview

So one super long training period is enough for most of us. Most. Not Charles. Charles studied aerospace engineering at MIT. (Yes that MIT.) Having literally engineered rockets Charles retrained as an physician. (Critical Care Medicine and Emergency Cardiology no less!) (Nutter.) Engineers make things happen. That’s almost the job description.

Matt MacPartlin gets a chat going about the engineering mind set and how it fits into the medical world.

We are confronted with problems all the time. Patient problems we can usually deal with although its a curious type of logic we have learned to use. But have you ever been confronted by a system problem. Have you ever been in a meeting where some bright spark suggests a solution for that problem only to be sucked into the black hole of cynicism.

Have you ever had the depressing moment where someone says; “Oh, we tried that once and it didn’t work.”? (Funny how we didn’t abandon Activated Protein C a bit quicker eh?)

Charles looked at medicine and was fascinated. How he is looking at what we are doing is not necessarily the same as the way I am looking at it. Or how you are looking at it. I’m curious to see where he goes.

I don’t know many successful engineers have made this career jump but it cannot be many.

And Charles loves an old Series 2B Land Rover too. (Nutter.)FullSizeRender.jpg

@wanderingsootball I used to travel with Sluggy all the time. He still comes on many trips but he is less of an exhibitionist these days. Or maybe he just didn’t want to steal all the limelight. I don’t know. He doesn’t talk much. But somehow I feel that Kuro and Sluggy might get on. He’s made of slugginess and slime. He’s not made of soot but he is a big fan of Spirited Away. Am I right in assuming that Kuro is in fact one of the very talented soot ball actors from the scenes in the boiler room with Kamaji, the Boilerman?

You could sleep on the couch? But why would you when you can sleep on the roof? Another #urban #rooftop #winter #hammockcamping in #Brunswick #melbourne #victoria #australia Hammock @ddhammocks Tarp @hammockgear pimped with @dutchwaregear Quilts @hammockgear Cans @marshallamps_uk @marshallamps_us
My mate Gerry. A winemaker and wine thief #extraordinaire Here clambering among French oak at @willowcreekvineyard in ninja like fashion ( the equally agile @mammoth_wine might be concerned about her bringing a knife to a gun-fight! ) thanks to @mpplunge for a great day.
A rather different sort of trip today. @mpplunge
#hammockcamping where #hammocks don’t make sense. I’m always out on the trail with my #hammock but I’m often out there with people that sleep on the ground or in a hut. Funnily enough that’s not always the easiest place to find a good #hang ... maybe I’m hanging out with the wrong people? #frenchmanscap #tasmania #australia #incessantrain #underquilt @hammockgear & @dutchwaregear
New Post on the website. #hammockcamping with people who do not do #hammocks It’s a complex matter!
Sleeping up at about 1000 metres on the side of #FrenchmansCap in #Tasmania in the #rain and #cloud and in my #dutchware #hammock under my old @hammockgear #tarp at #Tahune outside the very nice new #TahuneHut Everyone was stuck in the hut, except the idiot in a hammock! That was me! I wanted to see how much rain and wind I could manage and I was beside the hut if it failed. I don’t know how much rain fell but my @hennessyhammock water collector caught 2000 mls in 6 hours and that was collecting from the highpoint of the #caternary cut on one side. It was around freezing and the rain and spray was actually going upwards as the wind funnelled up the valley below #LakeTahune There is one reasonable hammock spot on a tent platform outside the amazing new hut. The trees are small so you really get bounced around when the winds hit #galeforce but I stayed dry and warm. In four days I never saw the #Cap despite taking a very wet walk up to the #summit the day after the worst weather. Despite it all this has to be close to the #mostbeautifulplaceonearth even in the #incessantrain It was so dark I had to put the camera down for a 1/30 second exposure and it blew over twice.
