Here's a reminder: not all bets are worth taking. A 40-year-old man in China swallowed two ballpoint pens after losing a bet when he was 14-years-old. Almost four decades later, he finally had them removed.
The man, only identified by his surname, Wang, claims he forgot about his unusual snack. After having an x-ray recently, he decided to have surgery to get them removed. It appears the man has recovered from his procedure.
