You know how Altoids claim they are “curiously strong mints”?

Well, I’ve had mintier mints from those free mints they give out at restaurants for free.

(But the mini Altoids are actually quite minty themselves, but they are way too small…)

Patients of surgeon Harold Gillies during WWI and WWII

Okay, these photographs pissed me off a bit, because they don’t show off how much of a genius Dr. Harold Gillies, the father of modern plastic surgery, was.  Rhinoplasty, skin grafts, and facial reconstructions have been practised for centuries.  However, it was this New Zealander surgeon who standardized these techniques and established the discipline of “plastic surgery.”

The introduction of more destructive weapons of WWI and WWII resulted in devastating injuries. In addition, in trench warfare, the head was more exposed than the rest of the body, and soldiers’ faces were often shattered or burnt beyond recognition. Despite the best efforts of surgeons, many soldiers were left hideously disfigured. Traditionally, the edges of facial wounds were simply stitched together, but when scar tissue contracted faces were left twisted and disfigured, so a new type of surgery was needed.

Gillies rebuilt faces using tissue from elsewhere in the body. Antibiotics had not yet been invented, meaning it was very hard to graft tissue from one part of the body to another because infection often developed, so Gillies invented the tubed pedicle,” where he used a flap of skin from the chest or forehead and “swung” it into place over the face. The flap remained attached but was stitched into a tube. This kept the original blood supply intact and dramatically reduced the infection rate.  After many surgical construction, grafting, and healing, which could take months to years, the tentacle-like tubing would be removed, and (volia!) a new face!

He was also the first to do sex reassignment surgery from female to male in 1946, then male to female using a flap technique in 1951, which became the standard for 40 years.

tl;dr, these were his patients BEFORE the surgery. He didn’t DISFIGURE these people he HELPED them.

Love the NA box art. It’s like revenge on the sort of lame box art we got on Bravely Default. (But seriously, the European cover is beautiful while the NA one is pretty much black. With Airy (who’s SO ANNOYING). She’s like the new Navi in video games…)

WHAT’S MY GRANDSON’S NAME

ARE THEY A BOY OR A GIRL

PLEASE DO HELP ME

WHY MUST MY HAIR BE GREY

WHICH START POKEMON ARE THEY GOING TO CHOOSE 

WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO USE YOUR BIKE INDOORS

WHY WOULD YOU FISH ON GRASS

HOW DO I KNOW YOU’RE GOING TO USE SOMETHING YOU’RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE USING 

WHY CAN’T THE POKEMART JUST DELIVER THE POKEDEXES TO MY LAB?

WHY DID I CONGRATULATE THE NEW KID ON BEATING THE ELITE 4 AND CHAMPION MORE THAN MY OWN GRANDSON?

WHY DO I KEEP IN TOUCH WITH HIM SO OFTEN?

WHY DO I NEVER DRAW ILLUSTRATIONS ANY MORE? I WAS REALLY GOOD AT THAT.

OH GOD I JUST REMEMBERED THAT ASH WENT BACK IN TIME AND MET ME WHEN I WAS A CHILD SO IT’S HIGHLY PROBABLE THAT ALL MODERN CREATIONS IN POKEMON DATA COLLECTION ARE BASED OFF OF DESIGNS FROM THE FUTURE THAT ASH BROUGHT BACK WITH HIM TO THE PAST WHICH I THEN IMPLEMENTED AND DESIGNED IN THE FUTURE, NOT TO MENTION THE OBVIOUS IMPLICATIONS OF ME MEETING ASH FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE PAST AND THEN STARTING HIM ON HIS QUEST TO BECOME A POKEMON MASTER WHICH LEAD TO HIM GOING BACK INTO THE PAST TO EVEN MAKE ANY OF THIS POSSIBLE
