A man coughed up a blood clot in the exact shape of the passageway in the lung where it had been located:

Gross.

The Atlantic called the clot, first documented in the New England Journal of Medicine, beautiful. I’m calling it strangely... familiar.

Damn. I can’t even imagine how it felt to cough that up.

Also reinforces my self-congratulations for >finally< giving up cigarettes a few months back. If I hurked up a cast of part of my lung, it would prob be black & tarry still. Yuck.
