I heard you have to pull strings to get medical care in this country but this is ridiculous.

Doc, will I be able to play the violin during brain surgery?

Certainly!

Fantastic, I wasn't able to play it before brain surgery!

Eddie Adcock did this with his banjo several years ago. The placement of the electrodes have immediate results, especially on fine motor skills, which provides essential feedback to target into the narrow parameters for effective placement. Else, this might temporarily cripple fine motor skills and require further surgery with potential hazards.

Man, Fark is really slipping when it takes 3 days after other sites noticed this to get a greenlight.

I mean, I been here a long time, and I love Fark.

what's the difference between a violin player and a fiddle player?

a slight mishap during brain surgery.

BTW, isn't all brain surgery done with the patient conscious?  You know, in case you touch something that you shouldn't, you can ask the patient about its effects?
