McLean Hospital researchers are reporting that xenon gas, used in humans for anesthesia and diagnostic imaging, has the potential to be a treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other memory-related disorders.
"In our study, we found that xenon gas has the capability of reducing memories of traumatic events," said Edward G. Meloni, PhD, assistant psychologist at McLean Hospital and an assistant professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. "It’s an exciting breakthrough, as this has the potential to be a new treatment for individuals suffering from PTSD."

“Bertone sculpted the body to look as though it had been crafted from a single block of metal.”
Evening Post: August 12, 1899.
"She immediately alighted, caught hold of the astonished youth, and gave him a sound thrashing, using her fists in a scientific fashion…”
I would love to know what this means.
I think that might be code for “punched him in the balls with devastating accuracy”.
I’ve had enough of soft grunge. It was rubbish from the start.
Everyone stop with soft grunge.
What passing-bells for these who die as cattle?
— Only the monstrous anger of the guns.
Only the stuttering rifles’ rapid rattle
Can patter out their hasty orisons.
No mockeries now for them; no prayers nor bells;
Nor any voice of mourning save the choirs,—
The shrill, demented choirs of wailing shells;
And bugles calling for them from sad shires.
What candles may be held to speed them all?
Not in the hands of boys, but in their eyes
Shall shine the holy glimmers of goodbyes.
The pallor of girls’ brows shall be their pall;
Their flowers the tenderness of patient minds,
And each slow dusk a drawing-down of blinds.
Fun Fact, I have the same name the guard who gets an inmate pregnant in OITNB, Mark Wahlberg’s character in Ted, the first diver to go below 1,000 on self-contained breathing apprentice…..
And a guy executed by the American military for raping then trying to kill a little girl while stationed in Austria.
So a mixed bag really…
