From the Corpus Callosum
I learned that today is World Voice Day
“Larynx or voice-box cancer most often presents as hoarseness, and the American Cancer Society estimates that about 10,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year,” says Hogikyan. As with many other cancers, the chance of curing it is best if it is discovered at an early stage. An estimated 3,770 people will die this year from laryngeal cancer.
When Craig had his recurrence it showed up as vocal cord paralysis which first manifested as hoarseness. Of course the first tendency is to think you have a virus and continue ignoring it even if you intuitively know something else is going on.
The Corpus Callosum also has an entry from late March called: On the Uselessness of Intuition; An Untestable Hypothesis to Explain Creationism
. I told him back then I wanted to come back and argue a little but haven't been in a place mentally to do it and he's been pretty occupied with some delightful newcomers to his brood (see pictures
, more if you scroll
) so I don't feel horribly bad for not getting back earlier. I don't think 'argue' is the best word because I really just want to hash through his 'untestable theory' more. Readers of this page who are interested in intuition may want to go read his thoughts. In a sense I've been posting some of my 'arguments' on this page without pulling them together. Arguing an untestable hypothesis is also a bit ironic I've concluded.
