I forget precisely where this was found, but it's one of the
most interesting pieces of memorabilia that we ever uncovered at the
CRCMH. It's a good old-fashioned rubber stamp used to ascertain whether
or not the patient in question has a twin (presumably for purposes
of transfusion etc) which is fairly bizarre given the low percentage
of patients that might fit into such a category. Its impression looks
why would anyone
actually use the stamp at all if the answer to the first question
is no? - very silly. Though naturally, half of my possessions
have since been ruined by having its smeared image stamped on them,
which is of course entirely pointless. There's not really much else
to comment on, except to say that modern technology is nowhere near
as fun (or indeed messy).
Ever wanted to pretend that you worked
in passport control? It's quite addictive in
a very very very annoying type way...
