    I wasn't quite sure where to put this web article .... 21 Real Crazy X-Rays - Gallery ...in the humour, jokes and diversions section, or here...but the linked collection of X-rays, gives an idea of how much punishment the human body can take and still survive...albeit with heroic surgical intervention.

    The important lessons to take from this, are:

    1. In a SHTF environment, risk management and hazard avoidance may enable you to enjoy a better quality of life and a longer life where access to medical resources will be minimal to non-existent,

    2. Inserting foreign objects up one's cloaca / reproductive organs may be intensely erotic, but may become quite difficult to retrieve without surgical intervention,

    3. Salad tongs may not be the instrument of choice when retrieving a vibrator up one's chocolate starfish...particularly when it too gets lost up with the vibrator!

    Watch and wonder....LOL

    And you thought the ER Docs, "Do it for the Money" when everyone knows they do it for the Stories, that they can tell, at Medical Conferences....

    Not a kitchen tool, but a speculum might be the right tool for the job. NOT a job for amateurs.

    I know that the idea was intended tongue in cheek, but the stupid really don't need encouragement! :D
