A 42-year-old guy in China got into a fight with his wife recently, when she wouldn't let him watch what he wanted on TV. Then around midnight, she told him to stop playing video games and come to bed.

When she wouldn't stop nagging him, he put a pair of tweezers in his mouth, and threatened to swallow them. And when she wouldn't back down, he did it. Which didn't really help his cause, because she just started nagging him to go to the hospital.
