This is the picture that solved the mystery of a drunken student's lost door key.
Chris Foster had no memory of swallowing the two-inch Yale key at a party to stop his friends taking him home when they decided he had had enough to drink.
The 18-year-old computer design student spent the night on a convenient sofa and did not believe his friends when they told him why he couldn't find his key the next day.
When he started feeling unwell, however, he began to suspect they might be telling the truth and went to hospital for an X-ray which revealed the key nestling in his stomach.
Doctors sent him home, telling him to let nature take its course, and the key emerged 31 hours later.
After a thorough rinse it was back on Chris's fob - saving him the £20 his landlord would have charged for a replacement. Link

"Prince Randian was an armless and legless sideshow performer known alternately as “The Living Torso,” “The Snake Man,” “The Human Worm,” “The Human Cigarette Factory,” and “The Amazing Caterpillar Man.” Randian spoke Hindi, German, English, and French, and was able to write, paint, shave, and roll a cigarette using only his mouth. He makes a brief appearance in the 1932 film “Freaks,” lighting a cigarette and uttering only one virtually inscrutable line of dialogue: “Can you do anything with your eyebrows?” He died of a heart attack in 1934 at the age of 63."
A news story about a German brother and sister who have had four children together. Not that I'm saying it's right to do what they are doing, or normal, but it's not until the end of the news report where you discover that even though technically they are brother and sister, they didn't meet each other into their teens which is a bit different to growing up together.
