Lady doc fails at playing Santa

Really strange...

Cops: Calif. doctor gets stuck in chimney, dies

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Police say a California doctor apparently tried to get into the home of the man she had been dating by sliding down the chimney. Her decomposing body was found there days later.

Kotarac, 49, first tried to get into the house with a shovel, then climbed a ladder to the roof last Wednesday night, removed the chimney cap and slid feet first down the flue, Bakersfield police Sgt. Mary DeGeare said.


While she was trying to break in, the man she was pursuing escaped unnoticed from another exit "to avoid a confrontation," authorities said.


If the boyfriend did indeed see her climb on the roof and try to get in, shouldn't he be at all concerned to see what happened to her before three days had elapsed. Ick.

Well, I can't let this one just go by without hijacking the thread:

But I swear that she was not one of my plebes.

Once again these stories illustrate the difference between "smart" and "persistent"...

Always remember that 50% of the doctors in every class graduated with results below the median.

And if you are surprised that doctors can be this stupid, check out this judge and her lawyer husband:

So the headline is Lady doc fails at playing Santa.

Heh maybe I'm just old school.

The ditty goes something like, if she says no, she means maybe, if she says maybe she means yes, if she says yes she ain't no lady.

She was a bit pushy.

I will use this in my class to show technological ignorance among the otherwise well educated. Most people do not know that virtually all modern chimneys have a smoke shelf that would prevent lady doctors or Santa Clause from going down the chimney

Yep, smoke shelf. Just another useless appendage.

Except for trapping Santa and lovestruck docs. And helping to redirect smoke into the livings space. Rumford figured out how to make an efficient fireplace. But that's a whole another story.

If a man was pursing in this case; would he be described as a stalker?

pretty good piece at
Successful fireplaces in tight houses

as to a Rumford fireplace, the original version has a smoke shelf
Rumford fireplace - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(see illustration 6)

The controversy arose probably because the "smoke shelf" is not a part of the Rumford design but an incidental effect from the conversion of older fireplaces. The narrow flue however is pure Rumford and in masonry fireplaces the smoke shelf is simply the easiest way of narrowing the flue

I hope the police have thoroughly investigated this case to make sure there wasn't foul play.

"Are you cooking something in your fireplace?"

"Naaa, it's just the Mesquite wood smell"

"Well it sure reminds me of the smell outside that barbeque place... smokey like it, too"

That was my immediate thought, too. It is summer, not Christmas, and the whole thing just reeks of foul play to me.
