Here's Why You Shouldn't Eat Corn Off A Power Drill

Food for thought.

Mom told you not to run with scissors. But eating corn off a power drill? That must have slipped her mind.

A YouTube video showing a woman in China attempting to eat corn with the help of a spinning drill is proving to be a cautionary tale for the rest of us.

For the first few seconds, all seems to be going well for the unnamed woman. She's holding her mouth open, the drill is spinning and the corn is coming off the cob.

Then, things go horribly wrong. See for yourself.

Missed it? Here's a gif:

The corn-drill catastrophe is actually part of a series of videos.

In the second installment, the woman is treated by a doctor, who gently dabs her bald spot with an unspecified liquid.

LiveLeaks reports that the doctor told her the hair would grow back. Eventually.

Part 3 shows more close-ups of the bald spot, while Part 4 shows the woman eating dumplings with a large bandage on her scalp.

Part 5 is where it gets interesting (though not as interesting as attempting to eat corn with the help of a power drill).

The still-unidentified woman answers critics who suggest that she faked the stunt for attention.

The woman denies those accusations by showing her bald spot and tugging at the hairs around it.

"See? It is real!" she said, according to the translation. "I am not trying to do sensationalization. Don't discuss my hair is real or not, please." 

The woman's attempt seems to be piggybacking of the viral success achieved by Eater Yang, whose attempts at power-drill corn eating were more successful, according to Mashable.com.
