Go see your doctor, then take a holiday as it sounds as if you need it. Keep off the booze and drugs.

I brought this up (!) in another question -
www.experts-exchange.com/Miscellaneous/Puzzles_Riddles/Q_20530445.html 

I can find no real evidence of it being stomach lining or similar, but there are plenty of references to it, and I have heard the rumour from various sources.  Possibly explains why your stomach feels really sore after a good nights vomiting.

The carot bits are actually food (predominately meat, and high starch foods like bread or potato) that has been coloured orange by the bile in your stomach.

Your somach is usually sore the morning  after vomiting due to two main factors.
1). Vomiting involves violent contractions of the stomach... the muscles get sore and tired.
2). The body releases adrenalin to draw the blood away from the stomach (presumably to reduce absorbtion of any undesirablesthat weren't thrown up) and gives you that crampy, butterflies in the stomach feeling.

apparantly there is a pervert who stalks the streets at night with pockets full of diced carrots. When he finds a drunken pavement pizza he liberally sprinkles it with the carrot pieces

There is a very funny guy called Barry Humphries (aka Dame Edna Everidge).

When flying, he used to take a container of mixed vegetables (diced carrots, corn, etc ...) onto the plane and surreptitiously pour them into his air sickness bag.

At an appropriate time in the flight he would make a huge show of vomiting and retching into the bag.

When he had attracted enough atention he would withdraw a spoon from his pocket and tuck into this convenient mid-flight snack.

He is my hero.

The stomach lining is a horrible grey colour that makes your teeth feel like rubber when it goes past them... Trust me on this 8-/. I had a LOT to drink the first time I got drunk, and my friends took pictures of me expelling my stomach lining before my mother came to pick me up and thought I was dead.

As for the carrot theory, the bits that look like diced carrots are bolii, or the little chunks of food you swallowed that your oesophagus split up into tiny pieces that went orange in your stomach for some reason.

CARROTS AR ACTUALLY ALWAYS FOUND IN YOUR VOMIT BECAUSE CARROTS ARE MAINLY MADE UP AF PROTEIN A SUBSTANCE WHICE UR BODY DOESNT DIGEST VERY WELL AND THEREFORE WHEN YOU VOMIT YOU ARE THROWING UP THE BODIES UNWANTED UNDIGESTED FOODS . CARROTS.

No the "vomit comet" is a US plane that flies really high, then basicly nose dives.

The end result is the people in the back are in free fall with no air flow around them, thus simulating no gravity... like in space.

They use this plane to train astronauts and for people with too much money.

The unsettleing feeling of 0G often makes people throw up (imagine that feeling you get in your stomach when an elevator drops rapidly and times it by 10)... hence "vomit comet"

My favourite by far is :

Talking to god on the porcelain telephone.

If you don't get it, imagine the sorts of things you're saying as you're sitting there, head in the bowl feeling sicker than you've ever felt before. :)

"Vomit Comet" is the nick name for the KC-135. It is a NASA reduced gravity simulation plane that flies in a parabolic fashion ie successive dives and climbs.  At certain points of it's trajectory zero gravity can be achieved for as long as 25 seconds.  The zero gravity scenes in the movie "Apollo 13", directed by Ron Howard, were shot in actual zero gravity conditions aboard the KC-135.

It's been many years now but I can remember always saying "Oh God, never again" and at the time I meant it, until Friday night came round again. Nowadays I don't drink at all and I don't miss it. I must have spent a small fortune in my younger days on beer and women, so money well spent then I reckon.

Carrotty looking things are just other nasty bits of bile, tissue, partially digested food, etc.  It's sort of like peanuts in your ****.  

Or ... maybe you have carrotts growing inside your colon because the bunny gods are getting ready to harvest you.

BTW - great comit stories here:
