One of those creepy things I wish I never knew

I found out the other day that botox, that stuff they inject for plastic surgery to make your wrinkles go away, comes from botulin. Which means you are injecting yourself with:
botulism: A severe, sometimes fatal food poisoning caused by ingestion of food containing botulin and characterized by nausea, vomiting, disturbed vision, muscular weakness, and fatigue.

Lovely, isn't it?

    Now I know why I want to puke every time I look at Joan Rivers.

    I for one have never understood why anyone would volunteer to have a lethal toxin injected into their face to make is look "younger". What it really does is kill the verves and the muscles in that area to make the skin look more relaxed. However, if you look closely, you can see the local paralysis that it really is.

    Hmm, it's weird that people would not know that. Must be a conspiracy.
