    Well, while it may look scary to some to get inside of that spinning monstrosity, you just have to remember that the inside is the safest place to be if anything came loose. Why? Because if it sent something flying, it will always fly away from the center of rotation, ala centrifugal force

    However, if it came completely off the bearings, there wouldn't be a safe place to be found in the room! :O

    I had my first MRI and CT scan in November 2019, and I'm pretty sure that the techs (and the surgeon, and the nurses) thought I was mentally stunted. I was foaming over the machines and the process, asking all sorts of technical questions and generally being oddly enthusiastic. I commented then that it would be cool to see the machine operating without the shrouding. I think that I stumped the band, as all I got in return were confused stares and perfunctory nods.

    But, where’s the trash can that someone bangs on while I’m in there?
