In perusing the online schedule for the Chest 2008 conference (Oct. 25-30 in Philly), I've discovered an atypical attention to alliteration. Here are the titles of three sessions in a row:
Peculiar Pleural Problems
Perplexing Pulmonary Pressures
Propitious Pleural Problems
"Propitious?" Holy 800 SAT Verbal!
Then the next day we have these:
Miscellaneous Mish Mash
Capricious Cancer Cases
Speaking of freakish, how about this title:
"Surgeons: 6, Mortality: 0".
I, for one, am intrigued.
Then we have those titles that fall into the category of overly-sweeping and grandiose. Like this one:
"Women and Tobacco: A lesson for mankind"
Finally, there is an event called "Asthma Bingo" in the exhibit hall, with the prize being a free CPAP machine. (just kidding. The prize is a laptop.) Instead of numbers, do they shout out allergens? ("B- Dander!" "G-Pollen!")
I can't wait to find out.
