    On the original Star Trek, Dr. McCoy’s scalpels were originally supposed to be salt shakers.

    And Geordi LaForge’s visor on STNG was made from 2 hair barrettes and painted gold.

    Swedish salt shakers from Macy’s bargain basement. During filming of one episode, Dr. McCoy was doing some operation on Captain Kirk- he waved the salt shakers over Kirk, and DeForest Kelley said, “Captain, you’re pregnant!” and pulled a tribble out of him.

    The moral is: salt shakers do a lot in the future. :-)

    The device Al always used on Quantum Leap was a bunch of neon-colored legos glued together.

    The Freiberger (named after the prop man) was McCoy’s medical scanner and it was made from a salt shaker with a spinning disc on the bottom.

    About 30 years ago a doctor told my dad to do the same thing (tsp. of vaseline a day) for diverticulitis. He did it quite a long time, and got it under control. (He stopped doing it then.) He’s still around at age 98.

    I believe vaseline is pretty inert even though it is a petroleum derivative. People use it on their skin all the time.
