Pelvic inflammatory disease.                            http://www.womensweb.ca/health/repro/std/pid.php

There were many, many warnings about this several years ago. It was one of those news stories that hit every newscast for about three days then is forgotten. After that, I noticed warnings on the product instructions to be sure to remove the final tampon.

I had no idea it could have any cause other than forgotten tampons or might be considered an STD until I read this article and a few others that I ran into looking for this one.

I had a roommate tell me a similar story about a, um, partially lost personal hygiene article, but I'm pretty sure that one belongs in the gross-out thread.


Don't forget to tighten the bolts on the new seat you just installed on your bike.  It will go from being oriented correctly for sitting (horizontally) through several stages of diagonal and finally end up nearly vertical, while you attempt to ride it to work.

I won't tell on me, even if I've done some pretty stupid things, but a few things I like to hold above my SO's head, otherwise he start thinking he's never done anything stupid (and gets a bit arrogant when I do stupid things).

Don't start a drip coffee machine without checking the pot is actually under, and leave the kitchen. For his defense he doesn't use a drip machine and he hadn't had his coffee yet...
Don't play with the concert leaflet and set it up on the table, without noticing there's a tealight candle under.

To myself:

When you go to church, silence your phone, please. That alarm for you to be at church going off in the middle of the reading (special service and my phone was set for service at the normal time) will be really, really embarrassing and make you want to sink into the choir loft.  :-[

Actually, she did. That's how it was found, a visit to a specialist who was worried she might have tumor due to the pain. They were planning surgery.

Are you gonna post the other story to the gross out thread?

VorGuy was passing gas (something that he ate) and I lit a candle in a glass candle holder next to him to help with "freshening" the air (scented candle burning the methane was the idea).

He set the plastic lid to the chips container on top of the glass candle holder long enough for the corner to melt almost through......he was complaining about the odd BURNING plastic smell while eating his chips & sour cream dip (and passing more gas - Mexican food for lunch, if I recall what was the cause).  Then he had the unmitigated gall to complain that I hadn't told him that the candle was still burning......um, he was still passing gas......

I now know to keep burning candles further away from him.....
Let sleeping dragons be.......morning breath......need I explain?

He can't *see* the candle is burning? He has to be told?

Do not try to cut through pins with the sewing scissors.  It will not do the pins any good, and it will seriously nick the scissors.

Don't decide that you can sneak into lab really quickly while wearing sandals, even though you know shoes are advised for a reason. Don't kick a door with metal edges when you're wearing said-sandals. Also, don't look at the pool of blood forming on the floor, look at the experiment you were supposed to set up and choose to set up the experiment first.

Fortunately my lab is equipped with really a good biohazard clean up kit in addition to the first aid kit.

Furthermore, don't iron fabric with pins still there. It'll melt the pinheads.

Make sure *every* pin is removed before you try on a freshly sewn-and-ironed top - use a magnet if you have to because you will have missed a pin, it will be HOT from the iron and it will STICK into the skin unde your arm when you try the top on, burning and piercing you at the same time!

I have a lovely scar and the bloodstain never fully came out of that top.
... it might frighten them.
