    A hit to the head with a blunt object!  Opps, nope, sorry, that was the first known general anesthetic!  Sorry, got my facts confused there for a moment! HAHA

    Jokes aside, I think it was cocaine smile

    Mentioned in ancient Greek and Roman medical texts, opium was one of the first used anesthetics, but cocaine was the first effective local anesthetic (first used in 1884).
