“Semenly” Harmless Back Pain: An Unusual Presentation of a Subcutaneous Abscess
We report, with review of the literature, the case of a patient who developed a subcutaneous abscess after intravenously injecting his own semen in an attempt to treat longstanding back pain. He had devised this “cure” independent of medical advice. This is the first reported case of semen injection for use as a medical treatment.
A 33 year old male was seen complaining of severe, sudden onset lower back pain. He reported lifting a heavy steel object 3 days prior and his symptoms had progressed ever since. This gentleman had a history of chronic low back pain without neurology. Thorough physical exam of the upper and lower limbs revealed an erythematous papule with a central focus on the medial aspect of his right upper limb. His ASIA score for neurology was normal and non-contributory. The patient disclosed that he had intravenously injected his own semen as an innovative method to treat back pain. He had devised this “cure” independent of any medical advice. Upon further interrogation of this alternative therapy, he revealed he had injected one monthly “dose” of semen for 18 consecutive months using a hypodermic needle which had been purchased online. Upon this occasion the patient had injected three “doses” of semen intra-vascularly and intra-muscularly. The erythema extended medially along his upper limb over the course of the following 24 hours as seen in figure 1.

He’s 243 years old, and is here to clear the air on all the conspiracies at DEN. Turns out this gargoyle is wiser than we thought, and is sharing more than we planned. Along with giving travelers his two cents, he’s surprising them with smiles and plenty of laughs. We believe interactions at DEN should not only be helpful, but fun too. That’s the art of airporting.
This grandma posed for a photo on an iceberg — then had to be rescued when she floated out to sea

A 77-year-old grandmother lived out her dreams of royalty when she climbed atop a throne-shaped iceberg during a recent trip to Iceland.
Judith Streng, from Texas, struck a regal pose on a hunk of ice that washed up on Diamond Beach in Jokulsarlon, while her son snapped a picture. It was a moment of triumph for the magnificent “iceberg queen,” as she was later dubbed.
That is, until a sudden wave dislodged the icy throne — setting grandmother adrift.
“When I got on it, it started to totter and a wave was coming in,” Streng told ABC News. “A very large wave came in and kind of made the throne kind of rock, and I could tell that I was slipping off.”
On Monday, Streng’s granddaughter, Christine, posted the text messages and photos her father sent after the Feb. 26 ordeal. Successive photos show Judith farther and farther from the camera.

“Lost her kingdom when she drifted out to see! [sic]” Christine’s father texted her. He added, “No joke. A coast guard rescuer had to save her and bring her back to shore!”
Photos of grandmother’s nautical adventure had garnered 66,000 retweets by Friday evening.
The daring grandmother told ABC News that her rescuer was Randy Lacount, a boat captain from Florida who witnessed her float away. He did not immediately respond to a request for comment Monday evening.
“I thought it was safe,” Streng told ABC. “One girl had been on it and then two girls at the same time, and it was very secure with them. But I don’t weigh very much. So it was a little easier to float off with me, I guess.”
Of her choice to sit on the throne, she told the network: “You know, I always wanted to be a queen. I mean, come on, that was my chance.”
Streng returned to the United States on Monday and is recuperating from her trip, Christine told The Post. While she was not available for an interview, the elder Streng relayed to her granddaughter that she’s “glad people are getting a kick out of her story.”
“Being so popular is wild,” the grandmother added.
In a way, it’s royalty.

Buffet brawl over crab legs includes 2 people fencing with tongs, smashed dishes
Police in Alabama said a brawl over crab legs broke out at a buffet restaurant, leading to plates being smashed on the floor and two people using serving tongs like fencing swords to battle it out over the delicious sea meat.
Huntsville police officer Gerald Johnson was at the buffet joint and was just about to sit down to enjoy his meal when the alleged fight started in the food line on Friday night.
“There’s a woman who’s beating a man, plates are shattering everywhere,” the officer told WHNT 19 News.
Turns out, people were waiting line for over 10 minutes for the restaurant to refill the buffet table with crab legs, the officer said.
“Everyone was saying, ‘They cut me in line. She cut me in line. He cut me in line. I was here first,'” Johnson explained to the news station.
Then came the sound of serving utensils clashing together.
“It’s not something you typically hear, if you can imagine a fencing match,” the cop said.
Then the crab legs came out.
“They’d been waiting there for the crab legs for a good 10, 20 minutes. When they finally came out, it’s very heated,” Johnson recalled. “Especially if someone is taking more than their fair share.”
Authorities charged Chequita Jenkins for allegedly assaulting John Chapman, who suffered a cut on his head. Chapman is charged with disorderly conduct.

Crab legs sparked a brawl at a buffet. A day later and hundreds of miles away, it happened again.
