Effective I.E.D. Medication Discovered

I often must stand in awe at the ingenuity of modern scientific medical advancement. Just a couple of brief days ago, the psychiatric community announced the invention of a new mental disorder, Intermittent Explosive Disorder. (I.E.D.)

"CHICAGO - To you, that angry, horn-blasting tailgater is suffering from road rage. But doctors have another name for it — intermittent explosive disorder — and a new study suggests it is far more common than they realized, affecting up to 16 million Americans.

“People think it’s bad behavior and that you just need an attitude adjustment, but what they don’t know ... is that there’s a biology and cognitive science to this,” said Dr. Emil Coccaro, chairman of psychiatry at the University of Chicago’s medical school."

Today it was announced that a cure for I.E.D. has been developed. Several I.E.D. sufferers were successfully treated and permanently cured by a one time dosage of two 500mg tablets of a new drug named FFA*.

Administering the Cure

"BAGHDAD, Iraq - Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the al-Qaida leader in Iraq who waged a bloody campaign of suicide bombings and beheadings, was killed overnight by F-16 jets dropping two 500 pound bombs, U.S. and Iraqi officials said Thursday. It was a long-sought victory in the war in Iraq.

Al-Zarqawi and seven aides, including spiritual adviser Sheik Abdul Rahman, were killed inside a building in a remote area 30 miles northeast of Baghdad, officials said."

Al-Zarqawi's I.E.D. was permanently cured by a surgical strike. Props to the operating Docs.

Al, I think it is flashbacks from my ill-spent youth.
