Why do some people get really drunk and then take on totally stupid bets? A 50-year-old man in China recently had an operation to remove two plastic pens from his intestines. The man says he swallowed the pens around 30 years ago while drinking with friends and they dared him to do it. He said he’d forgotten all about the pens until he started having severe abdominal pain. I wonder how you say “Hold my beer. Watch this!” in Chinese?
