Accidentally Ingesting Fossils
Collecting fossils gives us answers and helps us piece together a past we know nothing about. When this person was conducting field experiments in the wild, they found an object. They couldn’t discern if it was a rock or a fossil, so they licked it, which sounds pretty strange. The object stuck to their tongue, and they went into a coughing fit and swallowed the fossil. They’ll have to wait a few more days for it to pass through their system before they can properly study it (Cheezburger).
