Oh your wife lipping off to much at ya. Bring her down to my office we'll vibrate all those stressful thoughts away. For the people not getting it, doctors use to get women off for "medical reasons" that is why the vibrator was invented so the doctors hands didn't cramp up.

You could literally tell your patient that they're a witch and the whole town'd have to believe.

Im listening to a funny history podcast called "The Dollop" and its so crazy how many people died because they had a cold, or the doctors just didn't wash their hands lol.

While a lot of 'old timey' medicine was bullshit, there is evidence that some methods doctors used were effective and influenced by the scientific method. I attended a lecture from one of the scientists that tested a "[1000 year old medicine](http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-nottinghamshire-32117815)" the antibiotic was composed of something like 11 ingredients and removing a single one made it ineffective.

Have this heroin, it's a non-addictive alternative to morphine. - presumably some doctor in the late 1800's

Up until 1920s/30s Cocaine, Opium, Heroin, Cannabis, Belladonna, etc were all common components of medications sold by Eli Lilly Pharmaceutical and other big Pharma that still are in business today. You could mail a distributor for a catalog and order tablets of Morphine or whatever you'd prefer. Methadone was originally formulated in Nazi Germany bc WW2 Germany had little access to Opium/Poppy for treatment of soldiers and Hitler was also a mixed addict so Adolphine was synthesized... Just some fun facts...

I'm a young ER doc. Being a young looking guy in my early 30's, most patients are skeptical when I try to tell them about logical and evidence-based things. Conversely, the oldest guy in our practice is like 70+ and looks like an older Tywin Lannister from Game of Thrones. This motherfucker could walk into a room and tell you that you should eat your own fingers or you will die, and you'd believe him. He just has that, "i've been a doctor for 40 years" look and no one EVER questions him, nurses or patients. Meanwhile, to patients i'm like "um, yeah so definitely stop eating chalk." And patients be like "um, yeah, you look too young to be a doctor. I read a website saying chalk is good for you. So fuck you."
