Random: Things for me to worry about....

Remember back in the day when the old folks used to mess with you and tell you that if you ate a watermelon seed a watermelon would grow inside of you? I didn't buy it, but i was always a little suspicious. Apparently, my suspicions were not without their reasons...though i'm really not sure i buy this.

Artyom Sidorkin, a 28-year old Russian, went into the hospital complaining of chest pain. After some x-rays, doctors were convinced they'd found a tumor in his lungs. When they went in to remove it, they found a 5 centimeter fir tree. Not a branch. A tree. Not in his stomach. In his lungs. Turns out he'd been coughing up blood because pine needles were stabbing his capillaries.

This is the best part...the doctors believe "that the patient might have inhaled a small bud, which then started to grow inside his body." [source]

What. The. Frak.
