I've already mentioned how ridiculous I find some of my friends' facebook status posts. Some need to post a status about every little thing they've done in a day. Some write very long status messages that describe in detail what is happening to them. Still others post cryptic messages like, "just checked into medical city" prompting everyone to ask, "Why?" Ang dami talagang KSP sa mundo :)
One such FB friend posted a photo of himself on a hospital gurney. So everyone jumped in and asked, anyare? I guess he had his mobile device in his hand because he immediately replied in one word, GERD. I would think this prompted a lot of people to Google GERD. Yeah, okay, me included :)
According to medicinenet, it is a condition in which the acidified liquid content of the stomach regurgitates up into the esophagus. Okay. That's gross but it's simply acid reflux.
I've actually learned a lot of new things from those Facebook status posts especially when I encounter posts like this. So, okay, it might not be so bad after all. I will just have to learn to ignore those posts that are just too ridiculous and pathetic.
