Let me guess: they were closed when you swallowed them?
THIS is why I want to be a doctor. I want to be the first guy to see this x-ray, just because, come one. Now, I have no medical knowledge at all, but I'm guessing this is a baby, cause those ribs look pretty small right? I want to be the guy to put this baby under, slice him open, pull those suckers out of his esophagus, and save his effin' life. That's a pretty bad-ass day's work.
On a side note, yes, this x-ray is from the Mutter Museum in Philadelphia. I have actually been to this museum when I lived in Filthadelphia, and it's pretty bad-ass. It's a museum full of medical oddities - giant skeletons, siamese twins stuff, and (one that sticks out in my mind) this giant colon filled with poo. Seriously, some guy had a medical condition whereby he didn't poo for like months. He died, and they stuck his giant-ass colon full of poo in a museum!
What a shitty way to go!!
