A 29-year-old woman in Beijing, China had 23 1″-long needles embedded within her gut. All of the blood in her urine was an indicator. What disturbs me is how these needles got there:

Qu said doctors believe the woman’s grandparents may have inserted the needles long ago, hoping she would die and her parents might have a boy in her place. China limits most families to just one child, although rural Chinese may be allowed to have a second if their first is a girl, subject to the payment of fines.
