Would you believe, if I can say that I used one of those stethoscopes as a G.P. back in the early 70s in a small town in the mountains of Colombia., where it was in the hospital's museum.

Those syringes were also used to “treat” VD. The saying goes, “A night with Venus, means a day with Mercury! They injected mercury into the patient the same way they got it.

I don't think the companies of the world could keep up with the number of masks of shame needed today. You know, supply chain issues! Lol

A lot of people would be wearing the mask of shame at any given time if its use was being enforced.
