Wow, is that standard practice in Finland?
So somebody is reading these!
Someone must have read the wrong text book at medical school. That´s what they used to do when preparing their mummies
in ancient Egypt!
I cant blame anyone for doing that since I did that too myself. Not drilling people's skulls, no, but reading Sinuhe the Egyptian instead of those boring marketing books. Sinuhe was skull drilling expert, I highly recommend reading it if you haven't already (but Waltari's The Adventurer /The Wanderer is even better ).
I think we have it in our bookshelf actually - I may have read it a long time ago. Ancient Egypt is quite fascinating in many ways...
Back when ndobbs lived here he showed his sinuses to a doctor and the next day he moved all the way to Switzerland! I wonder what kind of operation they planned to do...
Trepanning? One of the oldest surgical procedures, always worth a try...:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trepanning
See, Jagge, we care for your health!
Maybe if it could be used to suck out your brain and exchange it for Thierrys it might be worth a try after all...
That might actually not be that painful - for the size. https://twitter.com/tgueorgiou
They didn't drill, they stuck needles up and electrocuted.
Son of a wild ass.
If that was the iniitial plan, I hope you didn't stick around for a Plan B or Plan C!
Now, if they had just suggested leeches instead, maybe you could have given it a brief try....
