Exams kind of ate me, but I exist still, I promise. ...Well, exams and looking through 19th century medicine. It's fascinating, how far we've come since then, you know? I mean, back in the 1830s they were still convinced that bodily humors and all that kind of stuff were a thing. Bleeding for your health and all that, you know?
We're all much better off now, of course -- we have penicillin, and antibiotics, and all sorts of other great advancements, but -- I dunno, it's certainly interesting to remember bits and pieces sometimes. Now that I'm convinced I'm probably not going insane.
