It'll Put Your Eye Out

LIVERPOOL, England, Sept. 21 (UPI) -- Throwing raw eggs at people as a form of protest or a bit of Halloween fun may result in serious eye injury, warns a British study.


"The dimensions of an egg are similar to those of a squash ball, with a considerably greater weight, meaning that eggs as missiles can easily fit into the orbital rim, causing severe blunt injury even when thrown by hand," the authors write.

To clarify, the study "monitored" patients requiring treatment for eye injuries. They didn't line 'em up against a fall and pelt 'em with Grade As. And I have no idea what the alternative to being "thrown by hand" might be.

Well, I'm still sick but on the road to recovery. Drove the car for the first time in a week today, and found out I had a flat. The good times continue.
