A girl obsessed with her beauty regimen decided to try a new miracle treatment. The young girl mixed sesame seeds in her bath water and soaked in it. After several hours, she had yet to emerge from her bath. Her mother began to worry. Her mother repeatedly knocked on the door and asked her daughter if she was alright, to which the girl continually replied, "just a moment".

At the height of her worry, the girl's mother burst into the bathroom and found her daughter curled up in a ball in the corner. The sesame seeds had begun to root into her skin. Hundreds of thousands of seeds had all embedded themselves into her skin. Her mother could only watch as her mad daughter dug out each seed one by one with a toothpick.
