"When morphine for injection was first introduced it was often injected just under the skin rather than intravenously, though this could lead to abscesses and scarring as shown here. This ‘morphinomaniac’ subject was a male nurse pictured shortly before his death." (Illustration by H H Kane, 1881 - courtesy Wellcome Images)
Yo, Londoners! Get your lazy arses to Euston’s Wellcome Collection to check out their new show High Society.

I thought I had posted this back in June but it seems I was wrong. This video was featured in the laziest exhibition at the Wellcome to date, entitled SKIN which was totally not worth seeing as all the good objects were really just carried down from Medicine Man upstairs. OUTRAGE. :)

Afternoon skull examination at the Swiss Benedictine Abbey of  Einsiedeln
[From the Klosterarchiv Einsiedeln*]

Switzerland - Bashing Protestant skulls since 1291
Oh, and could it be… maybe… TREPANATION HOUR already? No? You sure? Pardon me… o_O
* Einsiedeln is a fascinating place. Surrounded by moors that are haunted by dead soldiers. The average age of its population is so high, probably around 135 years old, you’re not even sure people are alive anymore. Go see the Black Madonna in case you ever get stranded there.

Govard Bidloo & Gérard de Lairesse - Ontleding des menschelyken lichaams. Amsterdam, 1960. Copperplate engraving with etching. National Library of Medicine. Via Dream Anatomy: A National Library of Medical Exhibit.
This stark dissection—with ragged flesh fully displayed and hands bound with a cord—signals a commitment to a higher level of realism. To our eyes, the picture may suggest a distressing indifference to, or even pleasure in, human suffering.
