Do These Look Like 40 Knives That Were Found Inside A Man’s Stomach Because He Ate Them?

When a patient shows up at a hospital with severe abdominal pain and ultrasound reveals a mass in his stomach, it's only logical to think first of a tumor, perhaps cancer. And that's just what surgeons at Amritsar Corporate Hospital in India at first assumed, according to a hospital news release. But then they put a camera down his stomach Friday "and saw a very different kind of thing," Jatinder Malholtra, the chief surgeon, told The Washington Post. So different was it -- they had never seen such a sight -- that they did a CT scan to confirm what they saw, as it simply defied belief. And they found not just one of these things but many of them. The things were knives, pocket knives, each about seven inches long. "In 20 years, I've never seen such a patient," Malholtra said in an interview. "I was amazed.""We asked the patient whether he had consumed these knives in a few days or a few months," said Malholtra. "He said he had taken 28 in number in the last two months." The scan did indeed show 28 knives inside. A team of five surgeons opened him up. They found exactly 28 knives, just like the man said. But while some of the knives were folded up, some were not. Their blades exposed, the man was bleeding profusely, said Malholtra. He could not have survived much longer, he added. The surgeons carefully removed each of the 28. But "we were not satisfied," Malholtra said. Perhaps the man, a 42-year-old police officer, had miscalculated. Perhaps his appetite for knives was greater than even he knew. Perhaps he had lost count. After all, a man who eats knives is not normal, perhaps not of sound mind, never mind his body.They did another scan in the operating theater and sure enough, found another 12, bringing the total to 40. They too were extracted. Why would a man swallow any knives, let alone 40? "This was the big question," said Malholtra. "But the answer was very erratic." The man simply said "'I have made my mind to take the knives. I don't know why. Impulse.' They were taken on impulse only." Did the man have a mental problem? That "seems to be," said Malholtra. But otherwise "he's very much a normal man." In fact, there is a condition called Pica, once described in the Journal of the American Board of Medicine, as "common, but commonly missed." Pica, said the article, "is the compulsive eating of nonnutritive substances and can have serious medical implications. Although it has been described since antiquity, there has been no single agreed-upon explanation of the cause of such behavior."

Sun Sentinel- When a patient shows up at a hospital with severe abdominal pain and ultrasound reveals a mass in his stomach, it’s only logical to think first of a tumor, perhaps cancer.
And that’s just what surgeons at Amritsar Corporate Hospital in India at first assumed, according to a hospital news release. But then they put a camera down his stomach Friday “and saw a very different kind of thing,” Jatinder Malholtra, the chief surgeon, told The Washington Post.
So different was it — they had never seen such a sight — that they did a CT scan to confirm what they saw, as it simply defied belief. And they found not just one of these things but many of them.

But while some of the knives were folded up, some were not. Their blades exposed, the man was bleeding profusely, said Malholtra. He could not have survived much longer, he added.

Just a casual day at the ER in India for sure. How do I know that? Well going through the time line of the story, the guy goes walks in on the ER. He fills out some forms, select his health care provider probably, yada yada yada. Gets the sit down with his doctor and says “Hey doc, I think i swallowed something like close to 28 knives, some of them folded, some of them just fixed blade. Do you think you can help me out doc? It’s feeling rather uncomfortable.” Doctor replies back “Well sure thing! We’re gonna get you back to normal in no time. You will have to go under surgery, but It’s nothing i can’t handle!” Half way through the procedure the doc goes “Well, that just about does it, removed 28 knives. But you know what? I bet this rascal ate a knife or two more and just doesn’t remember. Let’s double check just to be sure” **removes 12 additional knives** “See! What did I tell ya! Happens all the time.”

Somehow after an extensive medical procedure to remove 40 objects used to cut and tear flesh and muscle tissue, do they bother to ask “hey man, why the fuck did you swallow all of this?” Some one should turn that into a reality tv show honestly. The emergency room in an Indian hospital where they have people that have extra limbs and skin conditions that make them look like a tree and idiots who just casually swallow 40 knives over a two month time span. I picture like an A&E Network show like Pawn Stars/ Miami Ink meets House meets every medical anomaly in India. What a show that would be.

Teen Gets Arrested For Impersonating A Cop At A Hooters. Cops Find Knives, Lighter Fluid, Zip Ties And Names Circled On An Employee List

SAGINAW, MI — An 18-year-old could serve prison time for impersonating a police officer in an attempt to become Facebook friends with Hooters workers. Nicholas M. Fuhst appeared before Chief Circuit Judge Fred L. Borchard on Thursday, July 28, and pleaded no contest to a felony charge of impersonating a peace officer to commit a crime. Fuhst pleaded to that charge, which carries a maximum penalty of four years in prison, for a May 12 incident at the Hooters restaurant at 5538 Bay in Kochville Township. Fuhst's plea agreement calls for Borchard to sentence Fuhst within his state sentencing guidelines, which either will be scored at zero months to 13 months or zero months to 25 months. Borchard then will set a maximum sentence. Fuhst's third-time habitual offender status will double the maximum possible penalty to eight years in prison. Chief Assistant Prosecutor Christopher Boyd has said Fuhst, who last lived in Vanderbilt in Otsego County, represented himself as an undercover police officer and obtained a list of employees at the restaurant. After reviewing the list, Fuhst asked for more detailed information about some of the workers, Boyd said. "He indicated that he went to Hooters because he wanted to talk to the girls to see if they would be friends on Facebook," Boyd said. At Fuhst's May 19 arraignment on a probation violation charge, Assistant Prosecutor Joseph Albosta said that when police arrested Fuhst, they found three knives, lighter fluid, zip ties and observed several names circled on the employee list. "I think there were some dark thoughts going through his mind," Albosta said. In addition to the impersonation charge, Fuhst pleaded to a misdemeanor count of disturbing workers, which carries a 90-day maximum penalty. At the time of the Hooters incident, Michigan Department of Corrections records listed Fuhst as an absconder from probation. He was serving two years of probation for unrelated crimes of arson of personal property worth more than $1,000 but less than $20,000 and malicious destruction of personal property worth more than $1,000 but less than $20,000. Fuhst on Thursday also pleaded no contest to violating his probation by absconding and by committing the crimes at Hooters. He also could receive a prison sentence for the probation violation.

Do you think guys like these ever wake up in the morning and look them selves in the mirror and say “hey I’m a psychopath”? No? Not even when they’re half way impersonating an undercover police officer to a bunch of waitresses at the local Hooters just so he can add them on Facebook? Half way through telling the ladies about his fake case that he’s under cover for he has to realize like “hey this might be the craziest thing in the world.” And not for nothing, but I’m not quite sure this guy knows how friends work. Sure talking and getting to know another person is a huge part of it. He might’ve made a friend here or there just by talking but you see a big part of maintaining that friendship is making sure you don’t ward them off by possibly murdering them via zip tying them down and dosing their stabbed body in lighter fluid. Oh and having them on a kill list probably isn’t the best either and whether you realize it or not, if you make a list with people’s name on it, it will always be a kill list. Also love the little tidbit casually thrown in on the end that he was out on probation for arson for damages up to but under $20,000 dollars. Probably should’ve kept him locked up from that point on, so to this psychopaths benefit, I’ll put that on the justice system.

What are the chances you think he had the red lipstick ready to smear on his lips after the Facebook friend request was accepted?
