A siren’s call was never pleasant. Many a sailor met his doom after hearing it, because it was too difficult to ignore. The beautiful women sang out insult after insult at passerby, trolling the waves for victims.
As a result of this, folktales compared their physical nature to that of harpies. This is an insult which falsely came to be believed.

In 1961, Leonid Rogozov, 27, was the only surgeon in the Soviet Antarctic Expedition. During the expedition, he felt severe pain in the stomach and had a high fever. Rogozov examined himself and discovered that his appendix was inflamed and could burst at any time. With a local anesthesia, he operated himself to remove the appendix. An engineer and a meteorologist assisted surgery.
