Random stuff


What began as a faint popping noise in a nine-year-old boy's ear - "like Rice Krispies" - ended up as an earache, and the doctor's diagnosis was that a pair of spiders made a home in the ear.

"They were walking on my eardrums," Jesse Courtney of Oregon in the US said.

One of the spiders was still alive after the doctor flushed the fourth-grader's left ear canal.

His mother, Diane Courtney, said her son insisted he kept hearing a faint popping in his ear - "like Rice Krispies".

Dr David Irvine said that, when he examined the boy, it looked as if he had something in his ear.

When he irrigated the ear, the first spider came out, dead.

The other spider took a second dousing before it emerged, still alive. (!) Both were about the size of a pencil eraser.(!!!!)

Jesse was given the spiders - now both dead - as a souvenir. He has taken them to school and his mother has taken them to work.
