Miracles of Modern Medicine: the Giant Eyeball Magnet
January 26th, 2007
This makes me very, very glad that medical science has progressed in our lifetimes. Apparently, back in the 1930′s, doctors thought this giant, 800-lb. magnet would be a good way to remove metal fragments from patients’ eyes.
It’s also quite good for sucking all the metal fillings out of their heads. I’m pretty sure that Phil Ken Sebben got his start this way. (Adult Swim reference.)
