It’s silly season

I’m just winding up my third visit to the States in the past few months, and I’m all talked out. No opinions left. So I’m declaring it sex and drugs silly season, and leaving you with this, courtesy of David.

    Something else for the silly season (courtesy of http://www.badscience.net, not that there’s anything wrong with the science in this case):

    A 27-year-old lady presented with persistent cough, sputum and fever for the preceding six months. Inspite of trials with antibiotics and anti-tuberculosis treatment for the preceeding four months, her symptoms did not improve. A subsequent chest radiograph showed non-homogeneous collapse-consolidation of right upper lobe. Videobronchoscopy revealed an inverted bag like structure in right upper lobe bronchus and rigid bronchoscopic removal with biopsy forceps confirmed the presence of a condom. Detailed retrospective history also confirmed accidental inhalation of the condom during fellatio.

    Ha! My guess is their risk of STD transmission has increased because they DIDN’T swallow.
