Easy Learning For The Terminally Lazy

Surgical Memory Transplant
  [vote for,

OK are we all seated comfortably?

Ahem, Jenkins! whatever your eating I hope you brought enough for everybody & Carruthers will you please stop interfering with Johnson, you know he doesn't like it.

Will you all please settle down, this is supposed to be a lecture.

[Irritated tapping of foot]

OK are we all ready?


We'll begin then..

First we crack the patients skull open, as you can see I did that earlier to save time.

Then splice in the portions of the brain associated with memory previously harvested from the donor..

Oh & before I forget, there's a service for Williams at seven, open casket.

[Picks up a tray & places it on the table]

Here's one I prepared earlier.

[Waves pointer stick & indicates various parts of the sample]

So, that's the hippocampus, neocortex, frontal cortex, temporal cortex, basal ganglia & cerebellum, so most of it, don't think we need the parietal & occipital lobes though.

"Here fido"

[Tosses a couple of obscure lumps of meat to a dog under the lectern]

First we slightly roughen the two surfaces we're going to be splicing together by lightly scraping them & smear a little pixie dust on them then we stitch them together with dissolvable collagen stitches, or you could just use clean boiled catgut.

We also need to splice in & divert some blood supply of course, as you can see we have a selection of pre-cleaned blood vessels with the cells stripped out in a selection of gauges for that on the other table, harvested from our swine herd this morning..

Yes jones that does mean the kitchens are doing pork tonight.

No I don't care that it doesn't agree with you.

Will you just shut up & let me got on with this before our volunteer bleeds out?


[Some time later]

Well, now that's done it's just a matter of putting the skull back together.

Obviously it doesn't fit anymore which is why we have some freshly cleaned & boiled sections of skull taken from the same pigs we got the arteries from & some similarly prepared bone dowels to pin them together with.

Could someone pass me the carpentry tools under Caruthers chair?


[Sawing & hammering noises]

OK we're just about done..

Now some of you may have been wondering why Wilkins has been wandering around with a balloon inserted under the skin on top of his head for the past month & why we kept blowing it up a bit more.

Well that was to stretch the skin so it would fit over his somewhat expanded skull.

See, almost a perfect fit..

We sew the edges together..

Trim the excess..

And there you have it gentlemen, the procedure is complete.

There'll be a course of stem cell injections & drug treatments over the next few months to encourage new neural connections between the old & new parts of his brain of course but otherwise we're done.

       Is it possible to use this process to remove the porcine components from certain individuals who have not only the mental capacity but also physical appearance of a retarded warthog ?

       /Is it possible to use this process to remove the porcine components from// //individuals who have not only the mental capacity but also physical appearance//   

       So make them disappear entirely you mean?   

       That's a completely different & far simpler process requiring far less skill & much less specialised equipment, the bacon sandwiches are delicious though.

       I wonder how the psyche deals with those discontinuous dreams your not suppose to have.

       I don't know about you, but I post them here.
