How Bizarre

But first – "Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain."

Now back to the real blog. I saw this in the news yesterday. There’s a man from Russia’s Udmurtian Republic that was diagnosed with cancer. He had chest pains and was coughing up blood. They did x-rays and saw a growth.

But then, when they went to remove it, the doctors discovered it wasn’t cancer at all. Nope, it was a baby fir tree that had sprouted and was growing within his lung. They figure he somehow breathed in a seed and it took root.

As if there’s not enough to be paranoid about in the world today.
