I’m surprised that there is that much of the nail left after 30 years.

I read a report of a man who had a breech plug form a precussion muzzle loading rifle in his skull for 20 years plus or minus. He had no ill efects and went on about his business after he had blown up a rifle. This was in the 19th century before x-rays, ect. He finally started to have some trouble of some kind. The Dr discovered and removed the breech plug. They figured it went in through his eye socket.

@bently

Where did it get the sunlight it needed in order to grow?
I seriously doubt that thing started growing inside him -.-
He probably eats trees, and accidentally got one into his lung, and started getting chest pains, the thing still looks pretty green so it cant be that old -.-

Edit: Unless he also swallowed a lamp, that glew on its own and gave the seed the light it needed to start growing :P
