I have decided to start a new series called "Freaky Friday". While searching the internet for news throughout the week, I come across some very strange stories. Some apply to the world of politics while others apply to human nature. These stories need to be shared as they give a lighter and sometimes humorous look at the world around us.
The first story comes from India, where a man shocked people as part of his skull decided to come off.
Hundreds of people are thronging a hospital in the eastern Indian city of Kolkata to see a patient holding a piece of his own skull that fell off.
Doctors say a large, dead section of 25-year-old electrician Sambhu Roy's skull came away Sunday after severe burns starved it of blood.
"When he came to us late last year, his scalp was completely burned and within months it came off exposing the skull," Ratan Lal Bandyopadhyay, the surgeon who treated Roy told Reuters Wednesday.
"Later, we noticed that the part of his skull was loosening due to lack of blood supply to the affected area, which can happen in such extensive burn cases."
The piece came off Sunday and hundreds of people and dozens of doctors now crowd around his bed, where he lies holding the bone.
Bandyopadhyay said the skull's inner covering and the membrane which helps produce bone was miraculously unaffected, allowing fresh bone to grow.
This certainly gives a new definition to the term "giving head".
