"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. :)

I’m not sure it’s the sluggish speed of this Ministry of Health film from 1947 or my bad posture, but I’ve never felt so narcoleptic after watching a video. 

Also featuring:

- A bus on drugs!

- City impressions from a post-apocalyptic age!

- A woman without eyes!

- Extensive up-skirt footage of an underage girl!

Nice one, WellcomeFilm.

"This film highlights the principles of good posture, both standing and sitting, and the effect of posture on physique." (The Wellcome Collection)

I actually have elaborate soundtracks to all these medical Wellcome films in my head and will soon release a very homoerotic concept album. Oh, yes
