At the rehab hospital, the nurses had a name for a particular brand of patient: “STB,” for Stupid Teenage Boy.  When I was there, I met one, a 17-year-old who had been racing another teenager in his car and ran into a tree. Now he was in a wheelchair, spoke with an unnaturally high voice and giggled a lot for no reason. STB.
