    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081218/ap_on_re_us/foot_in_brain ok. I didn't see that one comming when I opened the news this morning. I can tell you my breakfast was less appealing thinking about this story. I guess that's why I'm not in medicine. To some people it is probably very interesting.

          Stephen King wrote a book about this sort of thing.
          Which book? I've read 'em all (nearly), and I don't remember this. MTA: Ok, I kind of remember something like this, but I still can't remember which book.

          On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office.  But you will wish that you'd spent more time running.  Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

            I think I've worked with some people with this congenital defect. Except they had their head up their butt somehow. Big grin
            I ran a mile and I liked it, liked it, liked it.

              One of my good friends from high school/college had emergency surgery as a freshman to have her ovary removed due to a cyst or tumor or something. When they took it out, they found teeth and hair growing on it. To this day, I shutter at the thought of it.
                my mother-in-law apparently has two spleens. Or is that spline? I never figured on plural use of the work spleen. Anyway it kind of gives me the willies.

                        I believe they are called teratomas. I always thought it was an family myth that my Grandma had one. She was part of a rather superstitious immigrant family. They thought it was a baby that was "went wrong." Maybe someone with medical knowledge can shed some light.

                          I had a friend in college who had a similar tale. Some sort of abdominal surgery when she was a teen discovered that she had absorbed a twin in-utero. That knowledge would give me nightmares for the rest of my days, I'd think. Globule, I think the book was titled "The Dark Half," maybe...Confused

                            The second one is the b spline. (this is another incredibly obscure joke for bhearn and math/CS-heads who will probably never see it)

                              Oh yeah, that's the one. Thanks, that would've bugged me all day! Big grin

                                I so innocently logged on at lunchtime to peruse the site...and now I think I might vomit, both from the news article and the follow-ups...OMG.
