As absurd as this may sound, both me and my friends used to chew on those tab
s after drinking the contents. They're fun to flick
with your tongue
, bend in half, etc. It was only last year that I discovered the horrid things that can come of this behavior. I was watching The Drew Carey show
, and it just so happened that I was subconsiously splitting this tab in half, then quarters, then eights... then I laughed and it was gone. Poop.
Fearing intestinal anhilation, I raced to the E.R. where I had to wait for three hours. Finally, they gave me some sort of metal-dissolvant to drink and took my x-rays. Around midnight, I was free to go home, having learned that stuff like that usually dissolves before causing any real damage, unless it gets caught in one's throat or windpipe.
