I just started watching House, and it's the most unique show I've ever watched. It's just so good. I figured out that House is like Sherlock Holmes but in the medical sense. (He's a diagnostician) When I went on Wikipedia.org, and typed in House, I found out that it is a homophone of Holmes, and a lot of things in the show are modeled after the Sherlock Holmes series.

You have to go to medical school for that.

The idea of a character like House having once been a med student makes me cringe.

Here's a (long) thread about PF Mentorship. Hopefully it will answer your question.

Very nice entry, G01. Well done. You might consider putting the past PF thread links that Evo and Moonbear and I linked to, into the Past Forum Threads section of your library entry. But it's up to you -- it stands well just as-is too.

Sounds good berkeman. I don't think I can add things to the "Recent thread list." I believe that is just a automatic process. Any new threads with the right words become listed there. I can possibly add them to the "See Also" link, though. Let me see what I can do.

Also, I noticed in one of those threads, Evo was talking about how she was never going to become a mentor! Two points:

1. Evo- Be confident! You can do it!

2.You told be you were always an all powerful and omniscient mentor.... I'm....so.... confused.....My world view....collapsing....
