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!

OMG Pinocchio did become a real boy!



Cloud  Thursday Apr 16 01:57 AM

that's just very creepy



Kolbenfresser  Thursday Apr 16 04:14 AM

No surprise

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



SPUCK  Thursday Apr 16 05:35 AM

Great! Medical doctors branching into horticulture.


The patent must be a real sap.

Here's a corresponding vid:

A biologist says it is impossible to grow a seed in a lung.



Trilby  Thursday Apr 16 07:39 AM

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 disagree. I always cook lung tumors with the fir tree in them to add tang.

I often feel like I have a tree in MY cavities as well.


Gravdigr  Thursday Apr 16 03:01 PM

Trees in lungs, yew don't see that very often.



Shawnee123  Thursday Apr 16 03:03 PM

I think that I shall never see
A lung that's filled up with a tree..



dar512  Thursday Apr 16 04:12 PM

Good thing that guy got early treetment.

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

Or to the Ripley's museum.



Griff  Thursday Apr 16 05:17 PM

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



Queen of the Ryche  Thursday Apr 16 05:46 PM

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

All he needs to do is inhale some light bulbs.


Sundae  Friday Apr 17 03:15 PM

No puns or quips from me I'm afraid.
All I could think when looking at the photo was: aren't lungs pink?



Tick  Saturday Apr 18 02:06 PM

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.

I almost didn't post this because of butterflies in my stomach and a frog in my throat.



lumberjim  Saturday Apr 18 03:50 PM

he may have inhaled some sunflowers, too....in which case, this would be entirely plausible

You're just being a stick in the mud.

Doesn't look green to me, sort of gold/brown.

Speaking of ticks shudder, I got the following email.

How To Remove a Tick
Bet it would work on dogs too.

Apply a glob of liquid soap to a cotton ball.
Cover the tick with the soap-soaked cotton ball and swab it for a few (15-20) seconds.
The tick will come out on its own and be stuck to the cotton ball when you lift it away.
This technique has worked every time I've used it, and it's much less traumatic for the patient and easier for me.
Unless someone is allergic to soap, I can't see that this would be damaging in any way.
Now back to your regularly scheduled IOtD.


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.



jinx  Sunday Apr 19 05:13 PM

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.
Ticks are so freakin nasty... and of course plentiful in this area.



xoxoxoBruce  Monday Apr 20 08:08 AM

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.
