The following is a blog documenting two Los Angeles Times editors' attempts to lose weight. It all began on Jan. 10.
Hey, remember that old saying, "I need to lose weight so I think I’ll stick a knife in my head"?
Neither do we. But it may just work (although it’s probably not endorsed by the AMA).
A Chinese man apparently had a 4-inch knife lodged in his skull for the last four years. He didn’t know it was there.
What tipped him off? Really bad headaches and then frequent bleeding from his mouth and ears (thus, the potential for extreme loss of appetite; it's working for me).
Of course, we wouldn’t be having fun with the subject matter if there weren’t a happy ending. The doctors X-rayed his head, discovered the knife and took it out without issue.
