Wire Woman

A 40-year-old Indonesian woman named Noorsyaidah is growing metal wires out of her stomach. Apparently this is "big news" in Indonesia. The problem has been plaguing her for almost seventeen years. From the Phantoms & Monsters blog:

During the first week wires kept falling off from her body and were gone. A month later, the wires grew back again and from that time onward the wires did not fall. They kept growing! One of her sisters said that she tried to help by trimming the wires. Alas, whenever she trimmed the wires, the wire retreated as if it were hiding and then popped up in another part of Noorsyaidah’s body.

And we've got video of wire woman:

If these "wires" are more like bony growths, then it might be a real medical condition. But if the wires are actually metal, then it's b.s.

The most I would accept is some kind of freak hair or nail tissue growth, but sprouting out of random areas? Maybe, I'm no doctorologist.
