More fic! A teeny-tiny Burn Notice fill, because it made me sad that hardly anyone had posted today. The theme is myths and legends, and the prompt is nobody believes Michael Weston could have been one person


In other news, I am trying to find a 70th birthday present for my uncle for next week. He doesn't want presents, he doesn't need 'stuff', and my initial plan of buying a bridge book from 1946 has been stymied by the cost of postage from the US.

I have, however, been utterly delighted by some of the random titles I found on Ebay. Including "Medical Electricity for Massage Students."

My new challenge: work that into a fic somehow. Has to be done!

I'm guessing that the medical electricity book had something to do with a TENS unit? Or did it not say?

I have no idea, I'm afraid - it was just the cover on ebay! My guess was an early TENS unit (is 1946 early for that?) but I just loved the title :)

I looked into it (because I love the title too and find it interesting!) and while the TENS unit as we know it wasn't quite around, using electricity as a pain relief has been popular for awhile it seems. I found mention of the delightful sounding "Electreat" which, among other treatments, recommends using electricity with water: https://mcgovernhrc.wordpress.com/2013/04/03/the-electreat-mechanical-heart/

I'm always amazed we have as many inventions as we do given the propensity of our forerunners to do seriously stupid stuff ;-). It's clearly a Darwinian thing!
