"In every age it has been the tyrant, the oppressor and the exploiter who has wrapped himself in the cloak of patriotism, or religion, or both to deceive and overawe the People.” ? Eugene V. Debs, Voices of a People’s History of the United States
Another big “drug bust”, another raft of occult numbers. Can someone please show me how to “weave” heroin into a carpet? My grandmother had a loom that I used to explore as a child. I am really puzzled where one could have inserted heroin. It is a powder I believe.
Other than intimidate actual drug smugglers or show the public they’re doing a great job, what is the purpose of faking such a story? They seem to come at us every 3 months or so.
If this is a silly photoshop, then what is the purpose of this lie? Are they trying to sell us on how magical medicine is? That they can do anything?
After a Chinese man’s nose was irreparably damaged from infection, his doctors decided to “grow” a second nose on the man’s forehead to replace the original nose.
The patient, identified only as Xiaolian according to Reuters, has his nose damaged from an infection following a car accident. His doctors decided the only way to reconstruct his nose was to surgically form a new one on the 22-year-old’s forehead.
While they quote a Dr. (is he a real, possibly?), he doesn’t exactly endorse the veracity of the story
Dr. Patrick Byrne, the director of Facial, Plastic and Reconstruction Surgery at Johns Hopkins Medical Center, said forehead skin is used to help reform noses because it is the closest match to skin on the nose. However, usually the nose is reformed during surgery instead of on a patient’s forehead.
“My guess would be that they felt that the tissue in the nose was so damaged they had to use the forehead skin on the interior part of the nose,” said Byrne. “It’ll be a real nose and [have a] breathing passage way.”
