This is actually an Apple® ad and there’s an iPhone hiding somewhere in there. Modern advertising is so clever! o_O

Or maybe not.

I’m not making any comparisons or accusations here, it just serves as a juxtaposition, yo!

I was sure I had posted this already, but Tumblr claims otherwise.

I am so sorry. Goodbye by Heather and Ivan Morison, 2008, a.k.a. my future home.

ARRRRGHHH!

My dentist had this etching in his operating room when I was a child!

I had to look at it constantly when I had to have (completely healthy) teeth removed (I had dreadful teeth and my mouth was too small for them – a cast of my teeth is still part of Zurich’s museum for dental history).

He used to say that looking at something very painful and gross while undergoing a painful procedure would make your brain get used to the pain and accept it.

I was 7 then and I thought he must be a man full of wisdom to wear such a supernaturally white coat.

Now I know he was just a dirty twisted old man (why the hell would you become a CHILDREN’s dentist in the first place?! o_O)
