oblivious: do you know where your chopsticks went?

Last week, kung-fu master Wing Ma, 40, noticed that he was getting pains in his stomach that did not subside.

Wing Ma has learned the art of dealing with physical pain. So for him, a trip to the hospital shows that he was in quite a lot of pain.

Doctors did the necessary tests and found the cause of his pain: a 7-inch chopstick that he had swallowed 20 years ago.

It seems that when Wing Ma was 20 years old, he was training his body to handle pain. What better way to do that then swallow a chopstick? So, that is what he did.

Said Wing: It never came out the other end. I forgot about it until the other day when I started to get pains in my stomach"

Doctors at a hospital in eastern China have extracted the chopstick.
good thing he didn't use a fork
