I wonder how many people have survived this kind of things back then.
They should literary have the fear of "drowning"

"Blow man! Blow!!!" the indignity of nearly drowning, only compensated for the indignity of beeing blown up the ass...

I would never look at the sea if this was a solution for drowning.

Politicians have been blowing smoke up our butts for many years.
The butt-smoke bellows and a few other early medical instruments can be seen here:
All I can say is OMG!!!!

I guess this is around the same time we thought the world was flat?
It seems like there is period in time where we forgot everything astrologers and scientist learned and figured out about the world.

Well, then how did "blowing smoke up your ass" come to mean to fool someone or to lie?

#11, from the link #9 left us:
"The tobacco enema was used to infuse tobacco smoke into a patient's rectum for various medical purposes, primarily the resuscitation of drowning victims. A rectal tube inserted into the anus was connected to a fumigator and bellows that forced the smoke towards the rectum. The warmth of the smoke was thought to promote respiration, but doubts about the credibility of tobacco enemas led to the popular phrase 'blow smoke up one's ass.'"

Nice - mainstream medical advice! I bet the people at the time that the people who questioned this might have been ridiculed for their lack of "science", and no doubt the "trust us, we're experts" line would have probably come up; No doubt there would have been "studies" to show how effective these things were. Nothings changed in modern mainstream medicine at all Isn't it also really interesting to note that the use of vaccination originated in this same period of time? But "immunisation" is irrefutable science today right?
