Removing arrows, also status and medieval medicine

The comments go into unnerving detail about removing arrows-- much detail about historical methods, and firm advice about letting professionals do it these days.

Read down, and you'll find details about medieval beliefs that the nobles and peasants needed different foods and medicines. Anyone know if this is something medieval people really believed?

Also, you can keep wolves away from mammoth meat by using yogurt.

The comic is good too, but this is one of the rare times when the comments are better.

ETA: More about arrow wounds, plus explaining why wooden cutting boards are more sanitary than plastic.
