The most f'd up thing I've read about in months

And it doesn't matter whether you read the Reuters version or this one from the AP version, it's nasty (both links pop). The headlines tell it all:

AP: "Ants Reportedly Eat Woman's Eye in India"
Reuters: "Ants eat away woman's eye in hospital"

Nice of the AP to put in that "reportedly" there, like maybe it didn't happen...of course, they're the ones that say the woman died, while Reuters mentions none of that.

In any case, having your eye eaten out of your head while you're in a hospital is the stuff of a Wes Craven movie. Remind me to always carry a big can of Raid and maybe some ant poison powder if I ever go to India, on the off chance that I end up in a Calcutta hospital.
