So I'm Watching "House"...

... and I've got a couple of questions:

1. What does happen when Munchausen's sufferers get sick for real?

2. Why is it called Munchausen's anyway? Didn't Munchausen hate doctors?

Yeah. I'm leading a fun life.

Answers to your questions:
1) They die. Or they get better. With or without treatment.

2) Munchausen syndrome: The name derives from one Baron Munchhausen (Karl Friedrich Hieronymus Freiherr von M√ľnchhausen, 1720-1797), to whom were ascribed a series of fantastically impossible tales written by Rudolf Raspe.

3) I'm awesome. Also, it's too freakin' hot to sleep in my apartment. So I look up useless information instead of figuring out a way to convert my waterbed to a giant ice cube.
