Open Post: Hosted By The Dangers Of Gas Station Sushi

December 5, 2020 / Posted by:

Any story that involves gas station sushi is guaranteed not to end well, and this one is no different. You may be asking yourself what lofty, aspirational level of death wish someone would have to have in order to tear open the plastic lid, get their nostrils assaulted by a sour smell that wasn’t the usual vinegar in the rice, and still think it was a good idea to devour the whole mess. And all of these unfortunate decisions probably followed pumping a few gallons of unleaded into their car and grabbing a pack of ciggies (I just made this part up, but the ciggies would totally be the healthiest purchase they made that day). According to The Mirror, the sushi eater in question, known only as JC, had a rough ride after swallowing The Rice-Bundled Seafood of Doom:

via The Mirror:

A woman suffered hallucinations, insomnia and incontinence for months after she ate five-day-old sushi from a service station.

Medics treating the woman, a 34-year-old only identified as ‘JC’, were left bamboozled as to what was causing her illness – until they eventually discovered the problem living in her gut.

A giant tapeworm had been lurking in her stomach for nine months.

Her symptoms started after she arrived home late from work and realised she hadn’t eaten all day.

Starving and with no restaurants open to order from, JC opened the fridge and spotted some sushi she’d bought five days ago from a service station, according to medical professor and YouTuber, ChubbyEmu.

Here is physician, YouTuber, and clinical adjunct professor ChubbyEmu’s hot, dramatic reenactment of JC’s harrowing day:

The Mirror again:

She endured months of treatments, blood tests and examinations and was rushed to the hospital twice after suffering terrifying seizures before doctors realised it might be a tapeworm and examined her stool and discovered thousands of tapeworm eggs.

They also found broken off segments of a tapeworm.

Doctors clocked the tapeworm as diphyllobothrium latum – one of the largest that can infect humans, and a species can grow up to 9m long.

The parasite loves vitamin B12 and is known to “compete” with humans it infects for the nutrient – which is exactly what it had been doing to JC, effectively starving her nerves and cells of an essential building block.

So to summarize, we truly have everything here:  A mysterious, bad-decision-making woman known only by her initials; a gas station in an unknown location with sushi aged far beyond its shelf life; and a feisty doctor who goes by the hot name ChubbyEmu as he shares his observations and high-drama video reenactments with the unwashed masses. The moral of this and every other story, as always, is: DON’T DO IT.
