Some cautionary tales!

On today’s programme we heard a couple of cautionary tales – firstly why it might not be a good idea to look at naughty pictures and secondly why you might want to give careful consideration to items you might want to include on your bucket list.

First off we heard about a 20-year old Swiss man who got so excited over what he had been looking at that had to get himself down to the local hospital after experiencing chest pains, shortness of breath and hearing his lungs crunching!

Doctors carried out X-rays and discovered the man was suffering from spontaneous pneumomediastinum – a condition in which air leaks from the lungs and gets trapped in the rib cage.

In this particular case his face had become swollen and air was found to be trapped all the way up to the bottom of his skull.

He had to spend a whole day in the ICU and three more on a regular ward.

According to a subsequent study the “crackling sounds” he heard which seemed to emanate from his neck to his elbows resulted from free air within the mediastinum, not associated with trauma. 

This is a rare, but usually benign and self-limited condition, more prevalent in young males, presumably those getting overly worked up looking at dodgy pictures!

At the other end of the scale we then reported on the terminally ill lecturer, 55-year old DARRELL MEEKCOM from Kidderminster who had determined that before he died he wanted to moon at a speed camera.

Why you might want to do this strikes me as somewhat strange but nevertheless while his wife went to buy some bread from a nearby Tesco Express, he dropped his trousers by a mobile speed camera on Stourbridge Road in Kidderminster.

20 minutes after he returned home police arrived at his house.

That seems amazingly fast, try getting anyone round to investigate a robbery!

According to reports the police subsequently bashed in his doors, thereby causing considerable damage and then charged him with resisting arrest, but apparently the charge sheet makes no mention of the alleged initial offence of mooning at the camera.

West Mercia police said later that the could not comment since legal proceedings were active.

His day in court is scheduled for next month.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your Bank Holiday but if you’re around tomorrow it would be great to have your company again,
Scott
