One evening at a medical convention, four renowned psychiatrists were chatting. One said to the other three, “People are always coming to us with their guilt and fears, but we have no one we can go to with our own problems.”
Another said, “Since we’re all professionals, why don’t we each take some time right now to share something we feel guilty about?”
The others agreed. The first confessed, “I’m involved in selling drugs, and I often convince my patients to sell them for me.”
The second psychiatrist revealed, “I love expensive things, and so I cheat my patients out of their money whenever I can.”
The third followed with, “I have an almost uncontrollable desire to kill some of my patients.”
The fourth psychiatrist then confessed, “I know I’m supposed to be able to, but no matter how hard I try, I can’t keep a secret …”
What sports-related 2002 comedy was the first Western-made feature film aired on state-run TV in North Korea?

Bend It Like Beckham. A message shown during the December 2009 broadcast said the soccer flick was being broadcast to mark the tenth anniversary of diplomatic ties between North Korea and Great Britain.

“The farther I got out, I could tell the ice was getting thinner, but I didn’t think I was going to break through,” said 13-year-old Joe … who broke through. With only his head and hands above the surface at a neighborhood pond in Shawnee, Kansas, Joe began to panic. But then he heard the calls of his older brother, Jacob: “Don’t flop around! Remember Man vs. Wild? Stay calm!” Joe followed his instructions, and a few minutes later, firefighters rescued him. Had Joe not remained calm, said one of the rescuers, he’d most likely have drowned. The brothers credit the Discovery Channel show with saving Joe’s life.
Priorities: TV was adopted in the US more quickly than indoor plumbing.

    Hah, TV programing did something right. I know my psychiatrists had to do this, they all have to do this, or they could become there own patients.
