Do Not Read This While Eating

This article is a list, including pictures, of the sixteen most horrific growths to appear on humans over the years. Some of the growths include a huge facial tumor, the world's largest hand, people with horns, a tree growing inside a lung and people with tails. And don't worry, this picture is just a cactus.

What’s On Your Mind?


Are we just a few steps from being able to read people's minds? Japanese researchers have discovered a way to process mindwaves by deciphering the images we see. In one experiment they flashed a series of letters on a screen and recorded the brain patterns of those watching. The software was able to break down the rough shapes of the letters into recognizable patterns. The Story. Won't be long now before we're all forced to wear tinfoil hats.

Citizens Vote Against Mayor’s Fashion Statement, Mustache Institute unhappy

image

According to The Salt Lake Tribune, Dave Snarr, the Mayor of Murray, Utah may be losing his trademark handlebar mustache. Mr. Snarr has put the fate of his mustache up for a public vote and so far, it is not looking good for this favorite facial feature.

This is part of an event to to raise funds for the Children's Miracle Network. Unfortunately, even the charitable deeds of politicians are not without criticism. The ire in this case comes from the American Mustache Institute , which has written the mayor a letter and posted a blog entry about the event.

According to the letter, written by American Mustache Institute CEO Dr. Abraham Jonas Froman:

"...you represent a community of downtrodden Americans - Mustached Americans - for whom you stand as a sign that we are not only fit to hold positions in waste collection, motorcycle repair, and hospital equipment maintenance. You are proof that a Mustached American can be a mayor, a leader, a respected beacon of excellence."

The Mayor's response? "...whatever you do, you're damned".

Voting for the fate of the mustache is open until May 16th.

A Slithering Spa


At Ada Barak's spa in northern Israel, slithering snakes don't give people the creeps. They give deep-tissue massages. For several years, Barak has been entertaining visitors to her carnivorous plant farm by passing around samples of the small reptiles her plants will consume. When her visitors claimed that holding the serpents was soothing, she got an idea, and thus, the Slithering Spa was born. Barak claims that the heavier king and corn snakes produce a kneading sensation as they move across your body. Want to get your own Snake Massage? Time magazine has more information.

Pierced Glasses

image
If I were to ever get a piercing I would definitely consider getting this done. A piercing that actually has a function. Apparently, each lens is attached to a piercing in the bridge on the nose by magnets and I hope those magnets are strong enough, so you don't accidentally knock them off all the time.

So, We Taste Like Bacon?


Ever wondered what human flesh would taste like but you've never been trapped in the Andes due to a horrific plane crash? Then this cute little robot has the answer. Designed by researchers in Japan, the Winebot is supposed to be for sorting different types of wine, cheese and hors d'oeuvres. But when a reporter placed his hand against the sensor, he was declared to be "bacon". Anyone care to confirm?
