NIIGATA — Surgeons operating on an elderly man to remove a stomach tumor have found a bandage left there 27 years ago, hospital officials said Tuesday.
The man in his 60s went for a checkup in December last year, complaining of stiffness in his stomach, and tests revealed a fist-sized tumor.During an operation at the Niigata Prefectural Central Hospital in January to have the tumor removed, doctors found a clump of bandage inside the tumor.
After checking his medical history, hospital officials learned that the elderly man underwent a stomach operation in November 1977.The doctors believe the bandage was left in the man’s stomach during the earlier operation and caused the development of the tumor. The hospital offered an apology since the earlier operation was carried out at their hospital.”
That (leftover bandage) was clearly our mistake. We feel sorry for the patient,” an official of the Niigata Prefectural Chuo Hospital said.
This is one of the most bizarre video games i’ve ever seen, and so of course it must be Japanese. The object of the game appears simple, you have to jam a big plastic finger up someone’s rear end. Why? I have no idea. Built into the cabinet is a bent over backside, and on the screen in front of you appears the expression of the person as you shove the finger inside. The harder you shove the finger inside, the more points you score. From the brochure: “This is a fun game of spanking the people that make your life miserable. When you spank the character that you choose to punish, the face expression of the character will change as they scream and twitch in pain. The funny face expressions will make people laugh and relieve stress.” Riiiight. Well in any case it has made me laugh. Although I don’t understand why they call it “spanking”, since you’re actually shoving a finger in someones butthole.
