Truth is Stranger than Fiction

I am a medical student currently doing a rotation in toxicology
at the Poison Control Center. Today, this woman called in very
upset because she caught her little daughter eating ants. I
quickly reassured her that the ants are not harmful and there
would be no need to bring her daughter into the ho spital. She
calmed down and at the end of the conversation happened to
mention that she gave her daughter some ant poison to eat in
order to kill the ants. I told her that she better bring her
daughter in to the Emergency room right away.


Seems that a year ago, some Boeing employees on the field
decided to steal a life raft from one of the 747s. They were
successful in getting it out of the plane and home. When they
took it for a float on the river, they were quite surprised by a
Coast Guard helicopter coming towards them. It turned out that
the chopper was homing in on the emergency locator that is
activated when the raft is inflated. They are no longer employed
