My “spine” is tingling…

When I was in college, a friend and I went to visit my Materials Science professor in his lair at a nearby hospital. There he showed us “the machine I use to break human spines.”

Cadavers, I assume.

Very nice!

If not before, then afterwards.

It would be a much more tempting offer if you got to choose whose spine they used as a mould.

The content links are presented via a shortener that directs through a redirector that, according to uBlock, is no good.

@doctorow Maybe direct links to the Etsy store would be more appropriate?

I’ve been coveting these ever since they appeared in Harry Potter & The Prisoner of Azakaban. I don’t know if I could actually bring myself to burn them though.

Given that they are located in WI, they could very well be locally sourced; artisinally prepared spines.


#10

Mmmmm. Heirloom spines.

Tangentially related: Jack Handey has given a ringing endorsement of the magazine Cannibalism Today.

Yeah, I saw the unfamiliar “tidd.ly” redirect and tried to visit the top-level domain to see what it was.

http://tidd.ly/ is a blank page.

Sketchy as fuck.

What no DIY? Are we makers or wusses?
