Norwegian artist ate his own hip bone

Norwegian artist Alexander Selvik Wengshoel enjoying the best meal of his time, and that is eating his own hip bone. A glass of wine, a potato gratin, and a piece of meat from hip that makes himself a dinner when his girlfriend is out for work, a nice moment between him and his hip bone. Even consuming the flesh surrounds the bone because it tastes like wild sheep.

He also said the process of taking down on his hip flesh was therapeutic.

“The hipbone had been such a problem for me for over 20 years, and it was just a way of making it better again,” he said.

There are several accounts when human history has some graphic revelations when eating human flesh and how far they tasted.

In 2012, Japanese artist Mao Sugiyama was charged with indecent exposure after allegedly cooking and serving his own severed genitals to a group of cannibalistic diners who paid about $250 each for the privilege.

While Wengshoel stated the dish he served up tasted similar to “wild sheep,” other accounts of the taste of human flesh differ.

German cannibal and convicted killer Armin Meiwes said in 2007 that his human brethren tastes like pork, but “a little bit more bitter, stronger.”

And in the 1920s, journalist William Seabrook wrote that the human flesh he consumed while spending time with some cannibals in West Africa tasted like “good, fully developed veal.”

Microscopic alien-like organism discovered

hydrothermal worm

This is how the unseen organism look alike when exposes in our naked eye using the powerful electron microscope. We have never seen that kind of specie of our entire lives. But witnessing this little guy makes us in state of shock. Opening its mouth with lots of sharp teeth align in one direction like the mouth of a dinosaur. But where are the eyes? The body was wrapped with cotton skin, and absence of face formation, simply an opening of its mouth dominates the facial expression. You cannot tell how weird the creature is but will make you speechless.

In our own way of understanding, this alien inhabited our world. There are certain theories that single-celled animals first started to rise on earth through meteors invasion. Then, here comes this weird individual discovered unexpectedly in our own world crawling anywhere.

We sometimes think that a spaceship landed on Earth and carrying them unintentionally without the knowledge that they shipped out from their planet, and fall accidentally on the land. Then maybe they started multiplying as they love living in our own atmosphere.

We have seen movies making aliens as the villain putting a small dose of trauma in our mind. Do they exist?  But when we saw that little wiggler, it seems we have our own aliens invading our own planet or invading our own body.

The discovery blamed on  modern microscopes that have come a long way since the days of Hooke and van Leeuwenhoek. “Nobody’s looking with their eye anymore — everything’s digital,” said biophysicist David Piston of Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee.

Neuroscientists often use confocal microscopy to visualize activities at the synapses between neurons. They can even look at living slices of an animal’s brain, Piston said.

Electron microscopes provide a stunning level of detail that reveals fine structures. Scientists have used these microscopes to create the iconic close-up images of red blood cells or human hairs.

But ultimately, microscopy’s importance lies in the dynamics of living cells, Piston said. “The ability to look at how things move around will really revolution how we think about cells.”

Google Maps discovered mysterious Pentagram: Is this done by human or an alien

google mysterious map

This pentagram shows exactly the shape of the star in a place of isolated corner in Kazakhstan.  We do believe in Earth that there are mysterious places and formation happening from the different locations, this formation leaves us in bizarre mode in our mind.

If you look at the map, the star looks perfect at any angle. And if thinking more like flying up from the sky to make an aerial photo, you cannot trust yourself but think of it as not the work of mankind. Ever such kind of phenomenon, we simply tell that is beyond from the power of human. This mysterious shape has something to do with sign or symbol from the past either done by human or an alien.

We can make our own perfect star using pencil in a paper. Human power establishes in our own human way in a limited manner, exposing ourselves in an earthly way. But if you draw a star perfectly using a pointed stick in a vast land, you can think of it an extra amazing, it will leaves a thrill in our mind that is is the work of  a giant creature creating a star in his own pencil, or an extra terrestrial residing with us in an unknown location. Well, the map simply tell us mysterious and bizarre formation.

Though it’s difficult to discern from an aerial photograph exactly what the Kazakh pentagram is, Emma Usmanova, an archaeologist with years of experience working in the Lisakovsk area, has an answer.

“It is the outline of a park made in the form of a star,” Usmanova told LiveScience. The star was a popular symbol during the Soviet era (Kazakhstan was a part of the former Soviet Union until its dissolution in 1991). Stars were often used throughout the Soviet Union to decorate building facades, flags and monuments. (Several online comments had suggested the star shape was the abandoned site of a Soviet-era lakeside campground.)

The star in the Soviet-era lakeside park is marked by roadways that are now lined with trees, Usmanova explained, which make the star shape even more distinct in aerial photos.

Is this Snail can make your face smooth and young?

face with snail

In our eyes, as we see crawling mollusks in a plants bath with mucus or oily spill from their body will makes us spit and turn away because we believe that it carries dirty fluid and bacteria, like the one that causes schistosomiasis and skin-borne diseases.

But here in France, one farmer, Louis-Marie Guedon, treated snail in a unique way by crawling them in your face to gain a youthful looks and smoother skin. Yes, the snail possesses properties or substances that will competes to those cosmetic products around the stores.

According to him, once the snail started moving around your face, the mucus secreted leaves a trail of collagen, glycolic acid, antibiotics as well, and other compounds to regenerate cells and heal cuts.

There are many things a person can do to make smooth and glossy face in front of many people. The least you can do is to pamper with different brand of substances or chemicals either synthetic or natural in forms. Company uses advertisement of their products to reach out to individuals who want to make a pleasing aura as they possess a youthful look.

But now snails started competing in the voluminous market in Paris spreading in European Union down to South America and Asia. Guedon, who is engaging snail production for a quarter of century, sells 25 million baby snails in a year to prop-up increasing demands of the market outside France.

Sun’s Huge Dark Spot Emerge

Sun’s solar activity recently posed a danger signs to living things on Earth as it shows a huge dark spot, almost a quarter size of the sun, spewing solar materials and gas outside the atmosphere.

The rare phenomenon occurrence of our very own star in the solar system provides a significant impact when it displays its dark properties, probably it will passed from one planet to another the effects of losing its light in the future. The signs could constitute a tired Sun’s spewing solar flare every second but this one almost gave up its activity and coping a signs that will lost its fire.

Once the Sun showing abnormal activity beyond from what we see, then hopefully it’s not yet the end of the world. Our plants shows greatness when sun started to show its light on the ground, animals dependent on it to survive. It’s a one way ticket to survive in our very own planet.

In the future, it will not only shows a quarter dark spot, hope it will not become a half dark spot or dominating the flare activity of the sun, because we will all going to die once the Sun started fading in our system.

That could be a bad news for us if we still live on Earth, the more dangers for the future generations.

Urine can Grow another Set of Teeth in Your Mouth

teeth from urine

Those toothless individuals especially the old ones don’t need to worry anymore for losing your teeth forever because it will replace with new set of teeth that grown back in your gum.

Yes, a scientist discovered that human urine can make your toothless gum regrow a new set of teeth replacing those falling old teeth. It is not about putting your urine in a cup and draw a drink or bathing your gum with those salty liquid excreted from your body.

The real score is a team of scientists at the Guangzhou Institutes of Biomedicine and Health decided to take inspiration from Duanqing Pei, a professor of stem cell biology at the research institute, took epithelial cells found in urine and converted them into teeth.

“We have a long-running interest in tooth formation,” Pei told ABC News. “We want to use somebody’s own cells to generate a tooth.” Pei added that if the cells came from somewhere else, they could be rejected by the host’s body.

Don’t expect your urine to just crystallize into a new set of dentures though. Pei and his colleagues needed to first convert the epithelial cells into induced pluripotent stem cells, iPS cells for short. iPS cells can be grown into many different types of tissues, and it’s those iPS cells that eventually turn into new teeth.

But stem cell technology became the center of controversy years before because it was involved with moral value by allowing cell generation with a touch from human hand instead of nature’s way of finding solution to physical change.

Yu Yu: a Toddler with Feet Growing

Three year old Yu Yu suffers a rapid growing feet that force her walking without shoes or slippers. Those bizarre formation never stop growing while walking barefoot from day to day living. The same place where Li Hongfang lives, a mother with disfigured face.

Yu Yu’s feet are constantly swollen and heavy, making moving around extremely difficult. Her parents due to poverty could not afford to buy large shoes to protect her feet from sharp things outside.

Despite of struggling to survive from poverty to make ends meet, her grandparents are slowly raising funds to take their little girl to the hospital for checking her conditions. They are planning to go to Beijing to seek medical assistance after collecting money from selling several pigs.

But as of this moment while waiting, little Yu Yu has no other way but walk barefoot along the way in her place Xi’an, in the Shaanxi Province of China.

Li Hongfang – Incredible Transformation of Disfigured Face

Li Hongfang, 40, a Chinese mother of two sons, living in Tianchao village, Qianxian county, in west China’s Shaanxi province admitted to shy away from public after 70 tumors started engulfed her face and thought herself a monster. But her husband loves her anyway despite of the horrible face.

But her amazing transformation back to normal life after a hospital offered a surgery for free.

Li Hongfang suffered a rare type of bone cancer causing tissue to grow under her skin distorting her features beyond recognition. She was forced to endure this type of condition called Chordoma for more than a decade for lack of money to pay hospital expenses.

But her case was recognized and touches the hearts around the world shaming the country’s ailing health services. In response, a hospital in Xi’an, capital of northwest China’s Shaanxi Province offered to carry out surgery for free which normally costs £60,000.

Tens of millions of Chinese people, particularly those living in the countryside, cannot access a doctor or afford treatment.

Officials are debating a programme which aims to provide health insurance for all its 1.3 billion people by 2020, but at present, the health system falls far behind the needs of those it is supposed to be treating.

Paul Mason – Unfriendly Flaps of Former World’s Fattest Man

Paul Mason, the former fattest man on earth, struggled to lose weight from half ton human to 200 kilograms after a gastric bypass operation in his stomach to neutralize his calories intake. But after fighting few years of losing fat in his body the present worries started to emerge were hanging bulging skin under his arms, legs and stomach that needs surgical operation. Those bizarre formations are the leftover flesh hanging in an unfriendly sight once scrape will completely manage him to have a normal life.

But NHS at Chichester Hospital who manages operation will not accept for those unfriendly flaps to be removed unless he reaches stable weight that is standard for having operation to push through. The removal needs cosmetic surgery and not anymore clinical in nature. Cosmetic surgery is not available automatically at Chichester Hospital.

Paul Mason was in pain during his younger years when his father died and later his mother deterioration of health started to succumb himself to food binge to fight depression. Later his eating disorder became a tough job to beat, and could be incurable. Doctor’s advice is for immediate gastric bypass operation to evade his life closer to death.

He captured the fattest man on earth when he reaches 500 kilograms but not happy of the recognition, and suffers emotionally as he takes his journey to drain fats in his body. He could not stand and walk and became a bed-bound for the rest of his life. There was a time that he needed medical attention due to hernia that a group of firefighters demolished his front wall and used fork lift truck to lift him out from his house and placed him in ambulance.

Cremation in South Korea – From Ashes to Beads

South Koreans are now changing the culture of the dead. Instead of burying the dead in a cemetery, they are now accepting cremation: turning the dead body into ashes. Much more, making it a difference, turning the ashes into gem-like beads. Making it bizarre transformation of culture that used to be a natural form of disposing the dead.

The gem-like beads from the remains of your love ones relates emotional attachment seeing them in your hands like precious stones. This how Kim II-nam of South Korea deeply attached to his father who died 27 years ago. Maintaining treasure moments with his father to fight from grief and keeping his father close to him the moments seeing those crystal beads in his hands.

Not only Kim II-nam started embracing the new trend of keeping the death of love ones but the whole Korean communities started leaving the Confucian way. A law was passed in 2000 to remove the grave after 60 years buried in land. Additional campaign from the government is pushing their citizens to accept cremations to save space in a densely populated small country. The campaign was successful that cremation rate increase putting only 3 out of 10 dead humans were buried.

The rise of cremation in South Korea gives way to the sharp increase of beads maker companies that involves technologies in making gem-like beads from human ashes. It will take 90-minute for the whole process with ultra-high temperature forming into solid crystal. The resulting colors attracted one’s eye mostly blue-green, while others are turning into pink, purple, and black.

Bonhyang is one of the companies successful in this field founded by Bae Jae-yul. According to Bae Jae-yul the beads allow people to keep their relatives close to them, wherever they go.

Kim II-nam paid as much as $870 to the company who transforms the ashes into crystal beads after digging up the bones of his father from the grave. He put it in his urn the blue-green color like gem stones. Some of the beads put it in his car while some give it to his five daughters. Whenever he saw them it feels his father is in them.

The other side of moral issue is profit-taking venture when companies dramatic rise find it lucrative for business the rising demands of cremation and beads making.

But some conservative against it. For them the highest level of respect for the dearly departed is to let them go back to nature.
