How do they get the xrays? The hospital can't release your xrays can they?
Everything and anything has been lodged up an ass according to Another Urban Myth: Hospital Edition.
It happens all the time. One of the most common is people shoving bottles up their butts and then creating a vacuum.
Back when Coke came in glass bottles, lots of ER docs learned how to break the bottom out of the bottle (to release the vacuum) without cutting the person.
The Huffington Post will never really be taken seriously because of articles like this. It's the Anderson Cooper of the Internet.
The live tweeting is a nice twist.
I don't think HP wishes to be taken seriously, just taken. They want as much traffic as their servers can accommodate. I wonder if the Daily Mail is seen as a competitor. What other outlet serves up fare like this on a regular basis?
Flared base! For goodness' sake, only use ones with a FLARED base!
I have seen patients with a variety of objects stuck up their ass: softballs, potatoes, light bulbs (!), cucumbers, pepper mills, mustard jars (the lage French's mustard jar..), vibrators, etc.,etc.,etc.
Hee-hee, the OP said "go down".
r8, your post is useless without pictures.
When I was straight out of nursing school, I got a patient who'd had a dildo surgically removed from his colon. He had a huge incision in his abdomen, and was in horrible pain.
Always use a good butt plug instead of household objects, and use one with a base!
best friend is an ER RN and probably wouldn't raise an eyebrow at this at all.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
