Brain Tanning: Using the Brain to Tan Skins
Imagine someone capturing you, ripping your brain out and then smashing your brain all over your skin.
Apparently there are hunters who use the substances contained in animal brains to cure, treat, or tan, skins, hides and leathers. That's using the old noodle.
For those who are disturbed by the notion of having your brains smeared all over your skin to tan your hide, don't worry, your brains won't get lonely. If your skin is tanned by this traditional method, they will pound your feces and urine into your hide as well as your brains!
