"In the past everyting was better" No fucking way, give me a band Aid with dino's in it. And i wil walk it off
Okay, saw off my legs but please stop fingering my gaping bullet hole!
Jesus christ At that point If u are hurt on the battlefield in 1805 Just shoot the dude in the face Fuck He is gonna be crippled for life anyhow
Consider that it's the same nation that invented the guillotine for a fast and humane execution. With so many amputations it would have been reasonable to build an "amputation machine" instead of going through that ordeal every single time. Nobles still had privileges after all.
The crazy thing with this is that it was generally done in under three minutes. Being able to perform fast amputations was pretty much a requirement for surgeons back then.
also don't forget about the innovative anesthesia they had back in the day
I doubt that anesthetics existed in the battlefield. My stomach turned a bit at the idea of having my leg cut off without any painkillers... So either the person had to be drugged, drank A LOT of alcohol, or a wooden spoon to bite down on...
The guy Lysterine is named after did an amputation where the patient died, his assistant died, and some guy in the audience died.
