Pink Underwear

Andrew Walls underwent a colonoscopy at the Delaware Surgery Center on Oct 12, 2012. For this procedure he was placed under anesthesia. And when he woke, he was wearing pink women's underwear. According to a lawsuit he's just filed, he insists that when he "presented for his colonoscopy he had not been wearing pink women's underwear and at no time did [he] voluntarily, knowingly or intentionally place the pink women's underwear upon himself."

He's claiming the pink underwear caused him "severe emotional stress" as well as mental anguish, lost wages, and loss of earning capacity. [Delaware Online]

Slow Taxi

Need to get somewhere slow? The Turtle Taxi service, currently operating in Yokohama, promises to drive as slowly as possible. They'll even turn off the engine at red lights. The service is said to be popular with pregnant women, the elderly, and parents with sleeping children. []

Painter of Nuts

Most people see peanuts as just something to eat, but artist Steve Casino sees them as a canvas. He paints them to look like celebrities. And one of his painted nuts costs anywhere between $300 to $1000. Check out more of his work at his website.

Empty Tank, Empty Head


Original article here.

Her obituary, curiously enough, makes no mention of this brush with fame.

Blaustein’s Hotel Soap Collection

Albert Blaustein had an impressive resume. He was a constitutional law expert who consulted on the national constitutions for over 14 countries. According to his wikipedia page, he was also editor of the 20-volume work Constitutions of the Countries of the World.

But in his personal life, he pursued a more eccentric passion. He collected hotel soap. He started collecting it in 1942, and by 1988 he had some 1400 bars of soap from different hotels. (See the article below.) By the time of his death in 1994, he had amassed around 2500 hotel soap bars. Following his death, the entire collection was (according to the Philadelphia Inquirer) bought by a Ripley's museum in Texas for around $1500.

Wrong Way

Frozen poop pills?!? Yes, that is what they are using to treat Clostridium difficile, or C diff, a bacteria that when over abundant in the bowel causes debilitating diarrhea. Samples of feces from a healthy donor with a good bacterial balance in the bowel are put in capsules that are acid resistant and frozen. The capsule is acid resistant so it will not dissolve before carrying the good bacteria to the intestines where it is needed. It is frozen to make it easier for the patient to swallow. The treatment has been very successful and that is great, but I have one word for the Doctors involved: suppositories!
