As the topic title says, I swallowed a tiny piece of aluminum foil. I was wolfing down a Toblerone bar, and as I was breaking off pieces of this yummy chocolate for consumption I didn't check for any tiny scraps of aluminum foil that may have stayed with the chocolate rather than get ripped away. I know this since I felt it in my mouth and alas, too late, swallowed it.
So yeah, I am pretty bored right now...so I thought I'd share it with you and bring up a good question...what Bizarre things have the members of A.net swallowed over the course of a lifetime?

When I was 2 years old, I picked up a snail off the ground and tried to eat it. Have it all on video too.
On a more recent note, in my freshman year of high school, me and some buddies decided to find out who could eat the most disgusting combo of food. I ate a bowl that consisted of: horse radish, two week old McDonald's maple syrup, warm mayonnaise (dangerous), flat 7Up, relish, and egg nog. Lol I took a mouth full of it, and couldn't even swallow it, let alone hold it in my mouth. I never knew I had such powerful gag reflexes I can still taste the taste to this date.

I have asthma, and a couple of years ago I needed a hit on my asthma bong at work. There was a penny in the apparatus and it shot into my throat. All of my asshole co-workers got a good laugh out of my self-heimlich. I got it out of my wind pipe and then swallowed it. I watched for it to pass, but I never saw it again.

The "link" between Alzheimer's and Aluminium was discredited (i.e., there is no longer thought to be credible evidence of a link between the two). Not to say that this will not change again in the future, so keep eating blueberries along with the Aluminium foil.
