Nature and Machine

That's just pretty!!

Doctors at the Policlinico Juan D. Peron, the main
hospital in Villa Mercedes in San Luis province, Argentina, had a
patient on the operating table when the power went out. "The generator,
which should have been working correctly, didn't work," a hospital
spokesman said, so "a family member got some cell phones together from
people in the hallway and took them in to provide light." The surgeons
were able to finish the emergency appendectomy thanks to the cell
phones' backlit screens. (Reuters)
