Medical Mystery of the Day

Hmmm...

DOCTORS ARE predictably baffled by what would appear to be a medical mystery. Over the last three days, assorted plant leaves and seeds have been continuously popping out from one of the ears of Aman Deep, a 12-year old boy in Faridabad.

ENT specialists, and the radiologists who performed a high-resolution CT Scan of the boy's skull on Friday, looked clueless after the test as they sought to find an explanation. The boy's ear poured out two leaves even during the investigation at the diagnostic center here. As the doctors tried to figure out the mystery, others are already attributing it to superstition and something that was beyond the world of medicine and science.

Where's House when you need him?!

I don't watch it, but from what I understand about the show, the correct answer would be: in the stockroom shooting up.

For me, Hugh Laurie will always be Wooster.

He takes pills.

And they never prevent him from doing his work... they allow him to do his work.

You should watch it sometime. I like it a lot although it's getting a bit formulaic. Most shows do after a while.

The whole seed thing reminds me of Mary Toft, the English lady who gave birth to rabbits. I'd call the Amazing Randi.

That reminds me of the young Syrian girl whose vagina kept yielding up long strings of knotted rags. Her sheikh could not explain it. He felt it was a mystery, but made himself available to remove the inexplicable objects whenever necessary.
