That man is in the middle of removing his own appendix, and no, this isn't a test project for the future of American healthcare. The year was 1961, and surgeon Leonid Rogozov was part of a Soviet expedition to the Antarctic. One day he realized he had appendicitis, and the remote location, brutal winter weather, and roving shoggoths made getting help impossible.

And also because he had left absolutely all of his fucks at home in Russia.
