Things I Just Don't Get: Botox

Human vanity knows no limits, of course: that's a given. I still don't understand Botox, though. Paralyzing your facial muscles to prevent wrinkles -- dude, that's so f'ed up. You have to wonder how they figured out that botulinim toxin eliminates wrinkles. Did some old lady get a bad batch of canned goods and kick the bucket? Did the pathologist say, "Gee, poor old bird died of botulism-induced respiratory failure, but wow, her skin looks fantastic!"
