Mailbag – First Aid Edition

Esteemed Dr. J – 

You might want to consider putting one of these into your car’s first aid kit in lieu of or in addition to the knife for cutting seat belts and breaking windows. The Mythbusters guys did this a few seasons ago. Of course, a knife is useful in other ways, such as dissuading would-be looters from trying to steal your tires while you’re tending to the injured. 

Best, Operative BG

Dear Operative BG,

Nifty gadget that life hammer. However, Dr. J. carries something better than a knife up his sleeve:

Lightsabers cut through schools…

About Dr. J.

Dr. J. was born the son of a New Atlantean sharecropper who cornered the market on notoriously delicious seaweed Himanthalia elongata (popularly known as Thongweed). With his newly minted seaweed fortune, Mr. J. the Elder sent his son to attend the Academy of Sorcery, Alchemy and Surgery where the good doctor apprenticed with the finest sorcerer surgeons in New Atlantis. Dr. J.'s areas of expertise grew to include bleeding, cutting for stone, trephination, medical divination with outstanding spatial and temporal resolution, cybernetic sorcery and medicinal alchemy. When King Orin of Atlantis fell ill with the Ick, Dr. J. stepped in with an elixir he devised from a combination of minerals, herbs and saps. Curing the king, Dr. J. gained significant notoriety which afforded him the luxury of time to devote himself to his side hobbies which include porpoise racing, the study of supply-side economics, cooking and raising his lovely merchildren alongside his lovely bride the archconservative Mrs. Dr. J.
