    Grow a Fir Tree...In Your Lungs
    A Russian man had some extreme chest pains and the doctor found a Fir Tree growing in his lung! Earth Day fanatic gone too far? This is strange, see it here.

    Whoa that's crazy!
    Isn't that what they tell kids to keep them from swallowing cherry pits?

    Yikes!! I can't tell you the number of times my Grandma used to warn me not to swallow watermelon seeds 'cause they'd grow watermelons inside my stomach.

    Looking at my aging profile in the mirror, and having read that story about the fir tree guy, maybe I should have paid more attention to Grandma. Uh, no ...

    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    An old image just flashed in my head, a commercial, for what I don't recall, but the guy is standing by a tree saying, "Some parts ARE edible..." , lol. What was his name? Gibbons something?

    It wasn't swallowed, it was inhaled. One time when Chris was in the hospital his "roommate" was a toddler that had inhaled a small piece of walnut that lodged in his lung. They tried all kinds of non-invasive methods to remove it and ended up having to do surgery.

    The report appeared in popular tabloid Komsomolskaya Gazeta, and was picked up by Russian news service Novosti.
    Is this tabloid anything like the National Inquirer? The seed being inhaled seems possible, the tree growing enough to have pine needles without sunlight seems improbable to me.

    LOL, I remember him. I think his name was Euell Gibbons and he said "Ever eat a pine tree? Many parts are edible.". There was a local comedy show here in Cleveland that did a sketch about him that was pretty funny. I found it on YouTube here. His part starts around 5 minutes 30 seconds.
