Trepination

That last post seemed to garner a little more commentary than my usual ramblings. I admit - it was a bit more obtuse than most of my posts, and some of you seemed concerned that I was drinking myself into a spot where diefic trepanation was an inebriated fantasy, but it's not. I cut the heads off of Mary, Joseph and Jesus and mailed them. While this might seem sacriligious, it was entirely justified given the circumstances, and my new appreciation of Jacobson's Organ, and ye who shall receive, shall understand why. My only regret is not taking a picture first so that there was proof of my crime.

And yes, I was involved in sending squashed clams and itty-bitty peanut butter sandwiches to a .NET publisher, fermenting sushi and macarconi to a future high-school teacher (although it was intercepted by the U.S. Postal Service and those of us involved were served a cease and desist regarding transporting unsafe substances in the mail), and troikas of Morman girls to unsuspecting friends ill prepared to resist the tempations of the spirit. These things were necessary in their time and place. As the good book says, there's a season to dance, a season to sing, and a season to mail shit to your friends and call the Mormon hotline on them.

P.S. I don't need tongs. I have many. I'm just too lazy to get them when another instrument is nearby, regardless of how inadequate that instrument seems.

Documentary Examines Benefits Of Drilling A Hole In One's Head

It would seem common sense that drilling a hole in one's head would not be recommended for one's health and well being. Really? What if you were told that Bill Clinton's mentor at Oxford University, Lord James Neidpath, drilled a hole in his head? Or that the procedure is as old as the ancient Egyptians and Incas that practiced it? Or that those who have undergone the surgery report added energy, increased brain power, and even induce a permanent feeling of high?

It is the strange phenomena of trepanation, the procedure of drilling a small hole through one's skull, that is examined by an hour-long documentary released by alternative/rock musician Cevin Soling. 'A Hole In the Head' examines the development of "modern" trepanation as used by people in the United Kingdom, the United States, and The Netherlands for the purpose of attaining a higher level of consciousness.
