It’s so stupid
Scarificators were used in bloodletting. The spring-loaded blades in this device would cut into the skin, and a special rounded glass cup could be applied over the wound. When warmed, it would help draw the blood out at a faster rate.
Saw one of these whilst visiting a museum of curiosities today. The world was once a much more intense place to live. I won’t lie, this did make my skin crawl, in a curious way.
The photo I obtained from google doesn’t look as intimidating as the one at the museum was. This one is less rusty and well lit.

All they want to talk about is how much drugs Kurt and I did. That is not all we did. We had a life. We ate breakfast. We ate lunch. We ate dinner. We rented movies, and ate ice cream. We would read out loud to each other almost every night, and we prayed every night. We had some fucking dignity. - Courtney Love
