Warms the Cockles

The Museum of Questionable Medical Devices lost its leader last year when founder Bob McCoy passed away in May of last year. Before donating his collection to the Science Museum of Minnesota in 2002, McCoy had the good sense to create an online archive of "the world's most inane and useless information about how to cure...what may ail you," which includes the Prostate Gland Warmer (pictured), Foot-operated breast enlarger pump, and phlebotomy (bloodletting) and phrenology (the study of head bumps to determine personality).
