April 16, 2009: Tree Allergy?
It is reported from Russia that a suspected tumor in a man's lung turned out to be a 5cm fir tree, which it is believed must have grown there because it's too big to be inhaled. link Enough of the whys and hows... here's the pic..... have at it with the recipes!

Again: Crazy Russians. Want to know whats growing in the lungs of the Zapashny Brothers, that makes them ride a lion.

during sinus season I have often felt I had a tree growing in my maxillary cavities.

.....prior to sauteing, carefully remove fir tree and set aside to use as garnish.....

I sure hope they take it to the chipper for recycling.

I wonder if this closed loop system has an anti-global warming application?

Sorry if I'm going out on a limb, but did they ever get to the root of the problem?

Nature's own rebreather--he makes his own oxygen.

All he needs to do is inhale some light bulbs.

No puns or quips from me I'm afraid.

I'm throwing a bullshiat flag on the field. You can germinate a seed in total darkness, but it certainly won't develop there. Here's another really big clue. It's green. That requires a little thing I like to call photosynthesis.
lumberjim Saturday Apr 18 03:50 PM
he may have inhaled some sunflowers, too....in which case, this would be entirely plausible

Speaking of ticks shudder, I got the following email.
capnhowdy Sunday Apr 19 04:56 PM
Great tip. Especially on a fuzzy wuzzy like my JRT. I always wind up pulling a chunk of hair out with the tick. Thanks xoB.

I've had luck removing ticks with oragel or ambesol... seems to numb the tick and the skin and they come off with no complaints. My sister jumped all over me for it though, saying you shouldn't put anything on the tick because that can stress them out and make them puke.

Yeah, I got an email this morning from someone that went through a lot of crap with Lyme disease. He said the Tick Borne Disease Clinic told him soap would make them think they were suffocating and puke.
