She thought it was just a simple case of stomachache. Well, apparently not.

Minati Mondal, a 51-year old woman from India, was suffering from intense stomach pain and acid reflux for two months before she decided to visit the hospital. She was admitted to the Debdoot Sevayan Hospital in Kolkata, where doctors performed a series of tests in order to determine what was the cause of her stomach pain.

After dozens of lab tests and ultrasound, doctors found out she had gallstones. Not just a few of them though, but thousands of them. In varying sizes.

According to Dr. Makhan Lala Saha, an endosurgeon from the hospital where Mondal was tested, they were expecting to find gallstones based on Mondal’s presenting symptoms. What they did not expect however, was the sheer number of gallstones in her body.

She was scheduled for an operation to remove the stones from her body, and it lasted for 50 minutes, with approximately 11, 950 stones removed. The gallstones ranged from 2mm to 5mm in size and took over fours for hospital assistants to finish counting all the stones.

11,950 Gall Stones Removed

Apparently, there have been previously recorded cases of huge amounts of gallstones removed from a person, but the quantity removed from Mondal is triple the current world record, which is 3,110 stones from a German patient in 1983.

Gallstones are composed of cholesterol and salts which form in the gallbladder. Some cases do not exhibit symptoms, but in some, the stones can block the gallbladder, causing pain and possibly, infection.

Years after the disaster, the souls of its deceased residents are still roaming the streets, going about their everyday business as if unable to tell they've left their corporeal selves behind.

In fact, several taxi drivers in the area have reported taking on what they eventually realized were ghost passengers who seem to not have realized they'd left the land of the living.

This Student is in Serious Trouble for Using the Flag to Mop the Floor

You’re in deep sh*t, son.

Since we were kids, we were taught to respect the national flag. We should handle it with care and do absolutely nothing that can desecrate it. A person caught disrespecting the flag in any way will pay big. This student may be in serious trouble for using the Philippine flag to mop the floor of the classroom.

You see, disrespecting the flag has serious consequences, no matter which country you're in. Under the U.S. Code, "Whoever knowingly mutilates, defaces, physically defiles, burns, maintains on the floor or ground, or tramples upon any flag of the United States shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for not more than one year, or both."

Aside from getting into trouble with the law, there's another solid reason why you simply shouldn't do it...

No matter what age we are, we should always take care of our teeth. Proper oral care helps us protect our teeth from cavities, weakening and gum diseases.

Enamel is the hardest part in the body; it is even harder than our bones.
Beneath the enamel, a substance can be found called Dentin. Dentin is as hard as our bones and it protects the pulp of our teeth.
