In Sydney, Australia, a 48-year-old man complaining of headaches was referred to doctors at Westmead Hospital. A CT scan showed what looked like a calcified lesion in the nasal passage. When surgeons went in for a closer look, they ended up removing what a study published in BMJ Case Reports described as “a rubber capsule containing degenerate vegetable/plant matter.” The man remembered an incident in which he was about to go to prison and his girlfriend gave him a parting gift of some weed in a rubber balloon. The man inserted the balloon up his right nostril, but ended up inhaling it further than he expected, to the point where he thought he had swallowed it. He forgot about it, despite suffering numerous sinus problems since.
In Lincoln, Nebraska, staff at a Pinnacle Bank branch reported to police that a man tried to open an account with a fake $1 million bill. The Lincoln Journal Star reports that bank employees say the man was adamant that the bill was real despite tellers’ attempts to convince him otherwise. The man eventually left with the bill, but without a new account. Police are reviewing surveillance video to try to identify the man, saying they want to check on his welfare and make sure he was not the victim of a crime.In South Point, Ohio, a woman driving home from a Halloween event crashed into a deer. When first responders arrived, they found her in a “Carrie” costume, complete with prom dress, tiara and fake blood. “The very first responder was a gentleman that pulled over being a Good Samaritan,” Wolfe told HuffPost. “You could tell he was horrified.” “Next came the police officers who were like ‘oh man’ and kept asking over and over again if I needed medical assistance,” she said. “The second round of cops that came weren’t in on the makeup and said, ‘Are we just gonna ignore that blood is dripping and she needs medical assistance?’”
