If you’ve ever considered yourself a disgusting person, a daily affirmation for many, then you might want to ask yourself, “Have I ever eaten my new-born daughter’s placenta?”
If you answered no, then breathe a sigh of relief for you’re not as gross as you thought you were. Feel free to go outside and engage with the rest of society, fly a kite, and smell a flower. The world is your oyster.
If you answered, “Yes, I have eaten my daughter’s placenta,” then meet Aaron Curtis, “skinny natural bodybuilder,” who ate his first born’s placenta,
Curtis’ video “Consuming your daughters placenta for extra natty gains!” is filled with mystery. For instance, Curtis never broaches why he eats his daughter’s placenta or what kind of “natty gains” eating the “organ that provided her life during pregnancy” will offer. He does cook his daughter's placenta into oblivion in a panini press to stave off botulism, though, which is its own kind of weird reward. He also never mentions if this video is real or not. We’re hoping for the latter as much as he’s hoping for natty gains.
Anyway, check out this disgusting video and spend the rest of the day trying not to throw up!
This horrifying sight might be one of the reasons why some people say they won't eat anything that had a face. A customer at the French fast food restaurant "Quick" found some disgusting proof that they were certainly eating real chicken. This fried chicken head was found among the chicken wings that they were trying to enjoy.
The customer originally made a video about this, which you can watch here:
Lush is a handmade cosmetics company that is known for their particularly fancy bath bombs. They also make a massage bar that includes organic adzuki beans which just happen to sprout in the shower. According to the product description:
Wiccy Magic Muscles contains a warming blend of cinnamon and peppermint essential oils that are said to stimulate the circulation to warm and loosen up stiff, achy muscles.
This isn't a new problem, it seems like people have been Tweeting about it since at least 2015.
Of course, it's been noted that it isn't really meant for the shower anyway. It's an oil bar after all. That hasn't stopped people from growing new little friends in their shower drains.
The Doughnut Project in New York just posted their new creation on Instagram. It's an Everything Doughnut. They explain exactly what that means in their image description:
This is our new Everything Doughnut: Cream Cheese Glaze with Sesame Seeds, Poppy Seeds, Pepitas, Garlic & Sea Salt. 😋🍩
So... 👍 or 👎? Is this savory doughnut an affront to all doughnut principles we pastry lovers hold sacred? Will it end up tasting like a sickly sweet, slightly soggy Everything Bagel? How are we really supposed to spell it, 'doughnut' or 'donut'? These questions and many more have yet to be answered. Maybe this will become the new cronut, who knows? Only time will tell.
Seeing McDonald's food looking pristine after an uncomfortable amount of time is nothing new. That doesn't make it any easier to swallow. Jennifer Lovdahl posted this image on Facebook with a description of it's quality six years after purchase.
This is what she had to say about it:
It's been 6 years since I bought this "Happy Meal" at McDonald's. It's been sitting at our office this whole time and has not rotted, molded, or decomposed at all!!! It smells only of cardboard. We did this experiment to show our patients how unhealthy this "food" is. Especially for our growing children!! There are so many chemicals in this food! Choose real food! Apples, bananas, carrots, celery....those are real fast food.
In 2009, during the Icelandic economic collapse, McDonalds shut its golden arches on the country and left it without hideous processed McBurgers to clog Icelandic arteries. A man named Hjörtur Smárason purchased up the very last cheeseburger sold in the country, but rather than consume it, he left it on a shelf in his garage for a three years. When next he looked at it, he realized the burger hadn't aged a day, and donated it to the national museum, where it sat in storage for another year.
Eventually the burger made its way to the Reykjavik Bus Hostel, where it's now on display 24/7 via live webcam and occasionally on Instagram when it goes on field trips. The burger seems a little dry more than 2200 days after it was made, but is still, grossly, totally edible looking:
Some people carry a hair tie wherever they go by wearing on their wrist like a bracelet. While it is extremely rare, a tight hair tie around the wrist could cause an infection like it did for Audree Kopp in Philadelphia. This infection didn't respond well to antibiotics so it led to surgery. If she had let it go on longer it could have led to sepsis, when an infection gets into the bloodstream.
While this kind of infection is unlikely, the result is alarming enough to make someone with long hair think twice about how they want to carry their hair ties with them.
Kids in Roosevelt High School on Chicago's Northwest Side have been receiving burnt pizza, rotten fruit and generally unhealthy, unappetizing school lunches. Most people don't get excited about school lunch but this takes it a little too far and the kids at this school decided to do something about it. They've created something called The School Lunch Project: Culinary Denial where they share information about the school's lunch provider Aramark as well as pictures of unsatisfactory lunches like this one:
Ultimately, their demands are for better alternatives to the lunch they are offered. Currently, Aramark benefits by being the only food provider in school and lowering their bottom line as much as possible. If kids don't eat, the company might have to change their menu or risk losing profits.
This cleaning has been a long time coming. It might look like vandalism that got out of hand to you but in the city of Seattle, it's a landmark. People come from far and wide to add their own disgusting piece of chewed gum to the wall near the famous Pike Place Market. Now that it's been cleaned new gum has already been placed. This wall will probably be back to it's former glory in another 20 years.
She wants you to use WHAT on your face?!
Beauty blogger and man juice aficionado Tracy Kiss has a pretty controversial beauty secret—skeet.
In a video uploaded to her YouTube page earlier this week, the beauty blogger uses semen harvested from friends and rubs it on her face. She says she is not involved in the "extraction" of the materials.
Although, she notes, that when she is married she will perform this regimen every morning. (Hey, fellas!)
Here's what she says about the facial on her blog:
As the beauty consumer, it is our own personal preference to ensure that products we use are acquired from an organic and sustainable source, manufactured in a safe and non-hazardous way and not tested on animals if this concerns you as it does me. Unfortunately for my semen facials a human organic c*ck is badly beaten on a regular basis in order to produce a mask, which some people may find disturbing; however I am reliably informed that the level of distress was kept to a minimum at all times, as obviously battery c*cks cannot provide the produce required or I would have been well stocked for life. I would also like to stress that I am not present during the donation process, as I simply receive it in a plastic container fresh from a sensible friend who delivers it to me after in his own time.
Oh what a world we live in.
What has three eyes and swims in the water?
Video has emerged showing a three-eyed catfish that was caught in the notoriously polluted Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn.
Greg Hunter, who shot the video, told WABC that people started crowding around a man who caught the catfish from a bridge.
"It was a crazy scene," he said.
Today in "Things that make you squirm" news:
A 26-year-old student from California thought he mad a migraine, but nope. He had a live tapeworm inside his brain.
After a month of intense pain, Luis Ortiz's mother drove him to the hospital where he started vomiting and eventually list consciousness.
Doctors ran tests and found that a a tapeworm larva had implanted itself inside his brain, forming a cyst that was blocking circulation.
"We made a hole in skull bone over the eyebrow and drove the camera into the centre of the brain and fished out the cyst and the worm… The worm was still wiggling when we pulled it out," Dr Soren Singel, one of the neurosurgeons who performed the emergency surgery, told the Napa Valley Register.
"Another 30 minutes of that blockage and he would have been dead. It was a close call," he said.
Doctors say he had probably eaten a salad with unwashed ingredients.
And this is why you should never eat salad.
Seattle has gotten itself in a sticky situation.
After 20 years of build-up on the city's famed "Gum Wall," the over one million pieces of gum will be scraped away in the coming weeks.
The wall, located in the equally popular Pike Place Market, was once named the world's second-germiest tourist attraction.
Tourists are encouraged to place their chewed gum on the wall.
Old gum must be removed because sugar and additives are eating away at the brick wall, Emily Crawford, a spokeswoman for the Pike Place Market Preservation & Development Authority told Seattle Times.
"We're not saying it can't come back," she said. "We need to wipe the canvas clean and keep (it) fresh."
The cleanup job is expected to cost about $4,000 and involves industrial steam cleaners that will melt away the gum.
You probably, maybe, definitely have herpes. And there's nothing you can do about it.
According to a report from the World Health Organization, about 67 percent of the world's population, or 3.7 billion people under the age of 50, have herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1).
That's the mouth kind of herpes. You know, the one that gives you a cold sore.
Not so fast though! HSV-1 can also spread to the genitals.
"The new estimates highlight, however, that HSV-1 is also an important cause of genital herpes. Some 140 million people aged 15-49 years are infected with genital HSV-1 infection, primarily in the Americas, Europe and Western Pacific. Fewer people in high-income countries are becoming infected with HSV-1 as children, likely due to better hygiene and living conditions, and are instead at risk of contracting it genitally through oral sex after they become sexually active."
In January, estimates showed that 417 million people aged 15-49 years have HSV-2, which causes genital herpes.
So adding those numbers together...over half a billion people have some form of herpes.
