Gentil Ramirez Has Penis Surgery After Too Much Viagra Leads To Horrifying Injury
This guy had a hard week.

Gentil Ramirez, of Gigante, Colombia, took so much Viagra (the erectile dysfunction medication) that he ended up needing surgery on his penis.

While multiple media outlets initially reported that the 66-year-old’s penis was amputated, Ramirez told Colombian newspaper La Nacion Thursday that his manhood is still intact.

He wanted to impress his wife, so he took far more of the blue pills than recommended. He had an erection for several days before he sought medical attention.

Doctors say that his penis was inflamed, fractured, and infected with gangrene. The mangled member required invasive surgery in order to keep gangrene from spreading to the rest of his body.

Nevertheless, Ramirez “is recovering well,” doctors told La Nacion.

Penis damage isn’t the only possible side effect of taking too much Viagra.

In 2010, Tokio Hotel guitarist Tom Kaulitz claimed he popped too many of the blue pills and then couldn’t see straight for two days.

And in 2011, 47 cases of rapid hearing loss were linked to Viagra and similar drugs.

Snake On A Plane: Mandarin Rat Snake Grounds Qantas Flight From Sydney To Tokyo
CANBERRA, Australia — A tiny exotic snake was found on a Qantas Boeing 747 airliner, leading to 370 passengers being grounded in Sydney overnight, the airline said Monday.

Staff found the 20-centimeter (8-inch) Mandarin Rat Snake in the passenger cabin near the door late Sunday before passengers were due to board the flight bound for Tokyo from Sydney International Airport, Qantas said in a statement.

Australia’s flagship airline said passengers were given hotel rooms overnight and left Sydney on a replacement plane Monday morning. Qantas said the original jet would be fumigated before returning to service in case there were other snakes on board.

The snake was taken by quarantine officials for analysis.

The Agriculture Department said the snake, a species that grows to an average 1.2 meters (4 feet), had been euthanized, “as exotic reptiles of this kind can harbor pests and diseases not present in Australia.”

The department said the snake had arrived aboard the jet in a flight a day earlier from Singapore.

“The Department of Agriculture is looking into how the snake came to be on the plane, but isn’t able to speculate at this time,” it said in a statement.

The mildly venomous Asian snake was about the width of a pencil and did not pose a threat to humans, but it had the potential to cause ecological havoc in the Australian environment if it had escaped the plane with a mate, Canberra Reptile Zoo herpetologist Peter Child said.

While snakes rarely pose aviation hazards, a 3-meter (10-foot) python in January clung to the wing of a Qantas flight from the northeast coast city of Cairns to Papua New Guinea. The python died during the flight but was still attached to the wing when the two-hour flight ended in the national capital Port Moresby.
