Vibrating eyeballs and other 21st century ills


In no other century …

The online systems against which there is no protection and no appeal:  fellow-feeling, while watching Henry Marsh, a consultant neurosurgeon, fail to complete his electronic timesheet in that excellent documentary The English Surgeon.

Then there is the horror which is unscrumpleable money:  tradition requires one to scrumple all new notes, whether sterling or dollars, and this vile currency is made of plastic and simply won’t.


And finally, the sonic toothbrush.  I wondered why I felt as if I couldn’t see while using it.  Turns out I really can’t see properly while brushing.  Cleaning the top teeth transmits vibration via the skull into the eyeballs.
