Living on the water


There are lots of people living on the water in Amsterdam... probably because there is an abundance of water.  I am sure there are drawbacks to living in a structure like this, but it certainly is beautiful.  Additional images here.

Dr. Leonid Rogozov


In 1962 Dr. Rogozov was stationed with twelve other Soviet men at a research station in Antartica. He developed peritonitis from a perforated appendix.  The closest Soviet station was 1000 miles away.  With the assistance of a driver and a meteorologist he removed his own appendix after administering a dose of novocaine to his abdominal wall.

Additional details available here.
