Man coughs up nail after 35 years

This appeared on boingboing, so everyone is no doubt aware of it already. From out of Sacramento, CA, we have this story.
In 1970, a bizarre gardening accident embedded a small nail deep inside Guy "Bud" Hart's body... More than 35 years later, the nail made an unexpected return, much to Hart's surprise... The
Placerville man was stunned earlier this month when a coughing fit
expelled the inch-long sliver of metal, completing its decades-long
trek inside the 84-year-old's body.
