Six scientists have swallowed Lego figure heads to find out how long it takes to poop them out.
The study, titled “Everything is awesome: Don’t forget the Lego,” was published in the Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health. The study used two scoring systems: Stool Hardness and Transit, or SHAT, and Found and Retrieved Time, or FART.
The SHAT score was split into two, a pre-SHAT score. This was logged the normal bowel habits of the researchers. Next a post-SHAT score that was logged after the Lego head was swallowed. The pre and post SHAT scores were then compared and data gathered.
Meanwhile, the FART score required the participants to sift through their poop in the days following the swallowing. They did this in the hopes of finding a little yellow head. The study aimed to find out how long it takes to poop out a Lego head. They hoped to help parents of small children who love eating things that aren’t designed to be eaten.
The study was conducted by six brave scientists.
They were all willing to swallow Lego heads to find out how long it takes to poop them out. The scientists, who were all paediatric health care professionals, ingested the small Lego heads for a study titled: Everything is awesome: Don’t forget the Lego.
They conducted the study with a lot of enthusiasm and humour, and the scientists were happy to participate in it.
The end result was a great success. It showed that it takes an average of 1.71 days to poop out a Lego head. The study also showed that there were no complications or adverse effects.
The study was a great example of how science can be fun and entertaining. It also showed that even the most bizarre questions can be answered with a little bit of humour and creativity.
However it goes without saying, leave these tests to the professionals and do not try this at home.
