Paleo Medicine

Paleo Medicine

Following on from the hit fad of the Paleo diet, comes the latest in ill-advised crazes: Paleo medicine! Got a headache? Forget paracetamol or silly old aspirin! Come in for a good old fashioned head drilling. Trepanation is the oldest form of surgery, and what’s good for the cavemen is good for the goose. We use only the finest blades carved from elk bone to peel back your skin and remove a chunk of your skull over the affected area....

There was recently a flurry of activity online, sparked by videos apparently showing buffalo fleeing Yellowstone National Park in the United States before a recent 4.8 magnitude earthquake. The thinking is that the animals were running for their lives, because they, like all the animal kingdom, apparently possess a super-sense which allows them to tell when a cataclysm is approaching.

There is a lot of incredibly weird shit on YouTube. You probably know that. But some of the particularly weird shit I’ve been looking into recently is the “extreme eating” community.

More Blended Pies

Three years ago, I blended a pie and ate it. It’s a long story, but basically, I lost a bet. I’ve always regretted the incident. I told myself that it was a mistake. Looked back on that blended pie slurry with disgust. As if it were the blender’s fault. Or my fault for coming up with such an idea. Ha. But what if I was wrong?
