BBC:

Figures published by the Department of Health have revealed a huge range of unusual accidents which put people in hospital in England in 2004.......

One child was admitted to hospital after a "prolonged stay in a weightless environment". He or she did not stay overnight. There are no further details about who this person was or how they had come to need treatment. :ooh:

Only wanted to comment on the last on the list without making everyone read all the way through it.

15 people were admitted after contact with a marine animal, needing an average of two days in hospital. Got off lightly if you ask me. Should be locked up for that sort of thing !

4. Two people needed five days' treatment after contact with centipedes or venomous millipedes.

Dangerous insects those centipedes....extremely evil. :\

Surprised no-one's mentioned this, JB being the place it is :E

Four people had an average of two days' treatment after exposure to vibrations.

I only had 1 of 'em... who's going to admit to the other 3?
