Serious readers will remember a picture similar to this not more than 4 weeks ago. That picture showed the effects of 1000 degree bacon fat splashed on the epidermis. I've protected the dermis by breaking the underlying wrist..... a month ago. Today, I returned to the hospital after my X-rays yesterday showed that yes, it was indeed quite broken and they did this to me. I think there is something very wrong with my pain meter. On the gripping hand, gout exposes one to the real meaning of unbearable pain.
I also like the book. It was the text for docents at the Smithsonian when they opened the Human Origins Exhibit.
