Who’s Got the Ace of Spades?

American medical students having a card game with a cadaver in 1890.

Wow, that last one certainly makes for one creepy prequel to Weekend at Bernie’s! I don’t know about you, but I think the past was pretty freaky. I mean, did dolls and clowns really have to look like that? Not to mention the crazy medical procedures back then.

But then again, perhaps in 100 years CT scans, x-ray machines, and ultrasounds will look like barbaric torture devices. Everyone in the future will probably all be living like they’re on an episode of Star Trek where every illness can be cured with the swipe of a small scanner!
