A giant hairball was removed by doctors from the stomach of a teenage girl addicted to eating her own hair.
The 15-year-old girl named Kavita Kumari has been suffering from a hair-pulling disorder called Trichotillomania. For the past year, the teenage girl had been swallowing single strands of her hair. Her addiction became so severe that she resorted to even picking up or plucking her classmates’ hair strands and eat it.
Through time, Kavita lost her interest in eating and would vomit every time she was force-fed. The teenage girl often complained of weakness and severe abdominal pain.
Her parents decided to bring her to the doctors when her stomach started bulging in a strange way. But Kavita’s condition remained undiagnosed and they were only given medicines that would temporarily took the swelling and pain.
“She would complain of severe abdominal pain and was even unable to digest water. Her stomach had bloated so much that we thought she is so sick she would just die.” Kavita’s mother Phool Devi said.
Kavita was eventually brought to Siddharth Multi Speciality Hospital and research Centre in Uttar Pradesh when her condition worsened.
After conducting endoscopy, doctors were shocked to find a five-feet long hairball inside the poor girl’s stomach.
“Her parents told us about her habit of eating hair. We did endoscopy on her that revealed she had hairball inside her stomach. We diagnosed her with Trichotillomania,” said Dr Lal Bahadur Sidharth, one of Kavita’s gastro and laproscopic surgeons.
“I didn’t expect the hairball to be this big. After I removed it from her stomach we were shocked. I measured it and it turned out to be five feet long. I had never seen such a case before,” he added.
Kavita luckily survived the sensitive operation that removed the giant hairball. As of the moment, the teenager is recovering from the surgery and will undergo counselling sessions to overcome the habit once she fully recovers.

This is what happens when a playful bet goes terribly wrong. YIKES!
Let’s face it. A party won’t be called one unless the groovy and the naughty ones are also part of the gang. As they say, what’s a bang without the gang, right? Unfortunately, as a bunch of partygoers who seemed to be a little bit tipsy high with a dose of alcohol started playing tricks, turned out, the game was on them!
It all started with JUST a bet. As these two buddies bet on who could slash the sausage locked into one’s mouth, something terrible suddenly happened. With a matter of few attempts, the next thing you know, they were picking up both the sausage and something else!

Americans Sign Prank Petition for Pre-Emptive Nuclear Strike Against Russia
Although this was supposed to be funny, it’s alarming how all these Americans willingly signed the petition to nuke Russia.
Mike Dice does it again!
In the past, the journalist-slash-prankster made fools out of many Americans by asking them to sign fake petitions such as “I Support Illiteracy,” “I am a Zombie Who Does What I’m Told, Without Thinking,” and the campaign to “Add Soylent Green (or human flesh) on School Menus” for Michele Obama’s lunch initiative.
This time, the guy is back for another ridiculous petition that again earned a lot of signatures....
Underneath This Black Hole, There’s An Entire Village Living Within
They’ve got homes, swimming pools, motels, bars, stores, and even churches down here.
Australia is best known for its beaches, its exotic and bordering on dangerous wildlife, and its vast and remote outback. We’ve all heard about Australia being the “Land Down Under” but have you ever heard about the country’s “Town Down Under?”
The extreme freezing and scorching temperatures of the outback make it difficult to sustain communities, but there is one town situated smack-dab in the outback’s hostile environment. Located in the opal mining town in South Australia is an extremely hot place called Coober Pedy.
