A: Hey do you know why Mr. Rockefeller was rich?Sounds dumb, no?
B: Oh of course, he's rich because he
hadearned lots of money.
A: Ahh thanks for telling, that's helpful!
Well, what about this conversation.
A: How did he die?Sounds dumb, no?
B: He died because his heart stopped.
Now time for some pseudo-medical-jargon 101:
Cardiac - adjective - related to the heart.
Arrest - noun - Stopping.
YES when you read a paper that says "Michael Jackson died of cardiac arrest", they are telling you "Michael Jackson died of the stopping of his heart".
And they irk my nerd-sanity big time. Too tired to write more right now, I will update this post tomorrow.
