@th0t, it must have been great to be a doctor back then. Got some back pain? It's because of all the ghosts in your blood. Take some cocaine to fix it.
@bojangles8u, yea but it was basically a knife with teeth and a handcrank which in all honesty is better then what they were doing before
And what a rousing success it was
Well, it worked. Women started to actually push and get it done when they knew the alternative was your privates getting that treatment
