Scientists Swallowed Legos to Find Out How Long It Takes to Pass Them . . . The Answer Is 1.7 Days
This is good info if you have kids . . . or an undying appetite for polyethylene, I guess. A new study in the “Journal of Pediatrics and Child Health” looked at how long it takes the human body to pass a LEGO if you swallow one.
The researchers didn’t use any fancy tricks to figure it out. Six doctors just volunteered to swallow one . . . specifically, one of those little yellow heads that go on Lego people.
But the rough part was they each had to monitor their own bowel movements, and sift through them to see if they’d passed it yet.
So how long does it take? Well, obviously it varied a little bit. But on average, they found it takes 1.7 days to pass a Lego. Which is just over 41 hours.
It might be a little different for kids, because they’re smaller and their digestive tract is shorter. But the point of the study was to show that if your kid does swallow one or two Legos, they’ll probably be fine. And in the end, none of them had any complications.
They did LOSE one of the Lego heads though and never found it. But they say that’s even more proof that swallowing one isn’t a big deal . . . even if it’s still floating around in there.

Elite Daily and Whimm magazine claim an Australian woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, recently found out her fiance was cheating just hours before she was set to marry him. The woman walked down the aisle and stood at the altar before reading text messages from his fiance’s mistress.
She read one that said; “Your body is incredible. And do you know how to use it. I wish my GF had half the skills you do. I miss you so much. I can’t stop thinking about. I’ve never had this kind of connection before. This weekend. You and I. It is on, hot stuff. Bring your A game.”
The wedding was called off. The former bride says; “It was certainly not the wedding day I had planned but to our credit, it was one hell of a party.”
