    When I was in junior high school, a group of us got to tour a semi-restricted area of the Smithsonian that was a repository of medical oddities. One was a cast of a girl's stomach who was a hair eater. Something like 90+% full of her red hair.

    That's just nasty. What would drive someone to eat mass quantities of their own hair?
