    I once swallowed a stamp hinge and the tension of waiting for it to 'pass' was an experience I never want to live through again. I emerged from it a sad and wiser man :D

    I heard about the woman who swallowed her tongs and they remained lodged in her stomach for 25 years, she only recently had them removed at the age of 74!!!!

    I was Philatelising once and remembered I had forgotten to wash my hair. So I washed it and wrapped it in a towel to finish my stamp studies. It dried all frizzy!!!!
    Never again.

    If it was a mount I'd be really worried but a hinge would pass no prob. LOL
