Beware of the "neck-breathers" among us!
The lesson? If only doctors could build our cars.
From an era when "laxative" obviously meant something different than today--I hope!

Osmosis Skincare have created Harmonised H2O UV Protection, which claims to stop harmful rays with liquid molecules that vibrate on the skin. Dr Ben Johnson is the founder of US company, Osmosis Skincare. He explains that "The liquid molecules vibrate on the skin, cancelling approximately 97% of the UVA and UVB rays before they hit the skin."
The drinkable solution￼ is supposedly the equivalent of factor 30 SPF sun screen.
Not only drinkable, but holistic! That certainly sounds credible.
Back in the 17th century, if you suffered from a burst blood vessel in your eye, the medical treatment of the day called for squirting pigeon blood in your eye. This was to be repeated 5 or 6 times. The treatment is recorded in a number of medical manuscripts, such as this anonymously authored one
from 1663 preserved in the Wellcome Collection. [via The Recipes Project
For a stroke or pricke in the eye if it causeth payne:
Take a pidgeon and let him blood in one of the winges in the vein & let the blood spinne out of the veine into the eye & it will helpe you yf you use it 5 or 6 tymes.
According to NehandaRadio.com
, baboon urine is "selling like hot cakes" in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. The place to go to get it is the Bulawayo City Council run toilets at Egodini commuter omnibus terminus.
The source of its appeal is the belief that "a baboon by its nature urinates only on one spot. Even if it travels from Matopo to Bulawayo, when it gets pressed, it will travel all the way to Matopo before it relieves itself."
Therefore, by extension (and because the ancient medical 'principle of similitude' dictates this must be so), if the stuff is applied to a man it will "start regulating his bedding tendencies." That is, it will make him faithful to one woman.
The article goes into details about how this is done. However, one husband found his wife's vial of baboon urine, got mad, and domestic violence ensued.
Another example of an attractive woman (Gail Andrews) modeling a strange piece of equipment.
In this case, the equipment was a "raincoat respirator" invented by John Emerson of Cambridge, Mass. and displayed at a meeting of the American Academy of Pediatrics in October 1960. It was an oversive plastic bag "much like a huge raincoat" attached to a modified vacuum cleaner motor. It helped patients breathe.
As you might suspect, these pills eventually met with Federal displeasure.
