Do you ever wonder who was the first person to think that you could take a person's large intestine out and attach a bag and htey would be ok? and how on earth did that person even know to do that? Shaz's website has an article about
the history of ostomies, and it is very informative, but it obviously doesnt' tell what the person was thinking. I wonder about
weird things like that sometimes, this is off topic, but i also think, who thought it was a good idea to eat a chicken egg? i mean, soemone looked at it and thought "i think i will eat this thing that fell out of a chicken's butt."
but i also wonder about how it was even possible to have such a major surgery performed hundreds of years ago, without the benefits of modern technology.
This is the nerd in me coming out, but does anyone have any thoughts?
