I have to tell you, I had a 2.5 hour debate on the meaning of the word hemorrhoid. You'd think it would be cut and dry, right?
I unknowingly opened a can of worms. And, I would've liked to stop after about ten minutes, but my friend said it was important to him that we keep debating this topic. No, seriously. LOL
And, I'm still laughing that I indulged this. It goes in the Hall of Fame for stupid things that have wasted my time.
Totally an optional read on hemorrhoids, but in case you're wondering how this could be a debate...
I mentioned this quote from the U.S. National Library of Medicine. "We all have hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are normal "cushions" of tissue filled with blood vessels, found at the end of the rectum, just inside the anus. "
My friend did not agree that everyone has hemorrhoids. He quoted MayoClinic "Hemorrhoids, also called piles, are swollen veins in your anus and lower rectum, similar to varicose veins." Also, "Nearly three out of four adults will have hemorrhoids from time to time."
Of course, I told him Mayo Clinic was probably just referring to symptomatic ones. But, he thinks the term hemorrhoid is incorrect for anything other than the condition.
Anyway, it's not super important. It was a waste of time. But, that was what lead into a large debate about the word "hemorrhoid" and what constitutes a "hemorrhoid."
Must we dig for the truth in everything? hahahahaha. What a rabbit hole...
So, have you wasted your time on anything ridiculous?
