He Was The Greatest Surgeon Of His Time, But His Operations Had Astounding Death Rates

He Was The Greatest Surgeon Of His Time, But His Operations Had Astounding Death Rates

Funny
Today, many surgeries are considered to be relatively minor medical procedures. When you show up at the hospital, it's a safe statistical assumption that you're going to leave that place alive. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); However, that wasn't always the case. Surgery used to be quite dangerous, and not always just for the patient, as the story of Scottish surgeon Robert Liston will demonstrate... During his career Liston was known as a surgeon with "the fastest knife in the West End. He could amputate a leg in 2.5 minutes." Wikipedia googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBM_BTF'); }); Now, I know what you're thinking. That's barbaric! Why would anyone...

What This Guy Can Do With His Stomach Is The Weirdest Thing I’ve Ever Seen

Funny
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); I'm definitely no stranger to weird body contortions. Ever since I was a little girl, I've been able to gross out my family and friends by arranging my double-jointed fingers in unnatural ways. I've seen people bending themselves backwards, and have even witnessed the disturbing effects of waist-binding. But what this man can do completely blows all that out of the water in terms of freakishness.I have no idea how it's possible to roll your stomach around like this, but apparently it is, because this guy is a total pro at getting his groove on in the most bizarre way ever. I seriously can't stop watching. For the ladies:) and Larry. After that, this looks positively tame...

This Is Why Women Outlive Men. (HINT: Men Are Recklessly Insane)

Entertainment
It's a statistical fact that on average women tend to live longer than men, and while scientists have numerous reasons for why that is, I think it might have something to do with what's on display in these hilariously crazy pictures below. George Carlin said it best; "Here's all you have to know about men and women: women are crazy, men are stupid. And the main reason women are crazy is that men are stupid." Who needs hedge clippers and a ladder when you have a fancy lawn mower and a crane. At least these workers are pulling their weight instead of sitting around. Wow! Just start etching up that headstone for him right now. I mean serio...

If you don't know this already, Australia is a pretty dangerous place. The people may be warm and welcoming, but it's the wildlife you have to watch out for. There are some extreme climates down under and there are some pretty extreme animals to go along with them. Some of the biggest bugs, most venomous creatures and craziest animals live in Australia. You may not believe it now, but you will after you see this list. The next time you think of going on a trip to Australia... don't. (Or, just bring lots of Cortisone cream, tube socks and thick hiking boots.) 1.) Pythons will eat everything. EVERYTHING. 2.) Pythons grow to be so big they can lift a wallaby. 3.) They also like to explore ...
Is This The Most Bizarre Historical Coincidence Of All Time?

Is This The Most Bizarre Historical Coincidence Of All Time?

Funny
December 5 might just go down as one of history's most coincidental days ever. On that date in 1664, a ship sank in the Menai Strait, located off the coast of North Wales. 80 passengers died -- there was only one survivor, a man named Hugh Williams.That same day in 1785, another shipwreck occurred in the same strait. Once again, all passengers died except for a man by the name of Hugh Williams. By now it should come as no surprise that yet again in 1820, a third ship lost its battle against the sea, leaving only one survivor. His name? Hugh Williams. Is all of this the result of pure coincidence, or is something else to blame? While there appears to be a clear connection between the Menai Strait and men named Hugh Williams, ...
