    Default stupid question

    so I was bored and I had a penny, and decided to see if it would fit in my nose yes I know. IDIOT!! anyways it seems it does fit and my nose sorta swallowed it and I don't want to go to the doctor, cuz that's kinda embarassing, so do you think if I induce a sneeze it will come out? and if not is it really that dangerous that it stays up their?

    nevermind I just swallowed it. and I didn't choke, so I figure since when I was three I liked swallowing quarters and my parents knew but didn't really take me to the doctor I'm putting this in that catagory, as I'm going to fine.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I think you better call a doctor. Right now.

    Don't worry, they see it all...and worse.

    THAHAHAHAHAHAh oh my goodness me, for shaem.

    I don't think you're in immediate danger, but please do get it removed. It'll probably take them three minutes, and you'll be out $100.

    If you accidentally swallow it, like if it works it was in your sleep or something... it's gonna be a worse proceedure:

    lol, I think you need a little clarification with the posts. I was just glancing on the Ispy an all I got was swallowing is worse....have you tried tweezers?
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    It's really not much of a problem.

    You won't be able to digest it. Your stomach acid will strip away some of the outer metallic shell. It won't split into pieces, if that's your primary concern. It should remain in its approximate state throughout its voyage.

    Passing it won't be much of a problem. Your sphincter is much more flexible than your nasal cavity. If you didn't experience any pain during the initial swallowing, you shouldn't have any real discomfort to worry about.

    Internal bleeding probably won't be an issue.

    If it is, you'll know pretty quickly.

    I would probably let it ride, but I'm kind of dangerous like that. Might take heart's advice if you want to play it safe.
