I don't ever remember putting anything in my ear or nose but I do remember my brother telling me it was good to eat rocks and so I found a really tiny one (might have been hard dirt, but it felt rockish) and tried to chew it. I was probably 3 or 4.

I can't imagine how a tooth can go all the way into the skull!!??!! Must've been a very painful fall, btw.

Well, I said skull but I guess I meant "face." lol

It was shoved up behind my nose...very hard fall indeed. The other front tooth, though root-canaled, had a slow and painful death. It just started to hurt one day, about a year later, and they thought it was dead but it hadn't been, and they root-canaled it and it still didn't die.

I finally got caps/bridges when I was 18 and my head was fully grown. Before that, it was a series of "flippers" and teeth attached to my braces, made of plastic.

Good times.

But it made me very brave at the dentist, and the years and years of orthodontists. "You have a small cavity, do you want novocane?" Uh, nah...I can probably take it.

I had one on my left wrist that was huge. I was schedule to have it removed, but after I broke my watch band, the damn thing went away within a month.

I have one of those! The doctor tried to drain it, but the fluid is too thick. Contemplating the surgery.

when i was in 3rd grade, I got frustrated with a math problem, and spazzed. I went to jam my pencil point into my desk to destroy it, but I had the pencil backwards, and the point drove into my hand right in a crease(of the head line) and broke off. it's still in there.

In 2nd grade, I had someone hold their pencil upwards on my seat just as I was sitting down. I had lead in my butt-cheek. I think was too embarrassed to go to the nurse, my teacher just let my go to the bathroom and make sure I got the point out. It wasn't too bad I guess, but that is the only foreign object I can remember.

No doctor, but I had a two or three inch sliver of glass in the pad of my foot. A quarter inch or so was still on the outside, so I was able to carefully pull it back out. It got infected later and hurt like an SOB. I had no insurance and no money, so I never went to a doctor. Soaking in hot water all day let the pus find a way out. I cringe just thinking about that.

A cow-orker got a splinter of fiber optic embedded in his eyeball... Had to go to the ER for that one.

I've had fiber sticks (mostly in my fingers) so many times, I've lost track. Polaroid film & tweezers are your friends.

technicaly then that doesn't count as it wasn't removed :p

I have a balck mole on my arm which I am convinced is a piece of grit from A fall off my bike when I was a kid.

Some small ball up my nose when I was small, the nieghbour was a nurse who fished it out, does that still make the cut since whe wasn't a doctor

I had several small bits of black plastic from the handle of my ski pole lodged in my lip from a bad fall. They worked there way back out over the next few years...

Any polarizing filter/film. It helps differentiate the shiny glass from the shiny wet, bloody tissue surrounding it, as they have different polarization reflection characteristics.
