this is your periodic reminder that old-timey medicines did not fuck around

Yeah that’d probably handle a cough.

CHLOROFORM?!

That’ll do it.

Back when medicine was a party in a bottle.

This week we started the Victorian era in summer camp.  I had to explain early-modern medicine to the 7 to 11-year-olds without discussing heroin or vibrators.  The struggle was real.

I love how people reference medical documents from this era as proof that corsets cause harm to people. *facepalm*

When you have them in a concrete tank, these are very acoustic animals which means that they rely very heavily on their hearing. We rely so heavily on our vision and on our sight, we can’t really understand that. They have perfectly good vision but they’re completely sonic creatures, their echo location, their passive listening is just far superior to ours. And so to put them into a concrete environment where it is very monotone and there’s simply no variety, no texture, no substance, no depth to the environment why use their echo location, they know where the four walls are, it’s an extremely limited environment.

There’s nothing in the tank, there’s no fish, there’s no algae, there’s no anything and so, it’s not that they can’t use their echo location in a concrete tank, it’s—why use it? They know exactly the limits of their environment so there’s no point to it and I think it’s a terrible thing to take away from them.- Dr. Naomi Rose
