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."

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...
Gross Creatures Are Washing Up On California’s Coast And People Think They’re Aliens

Gross Creatures Are Washing Up On California’s Coast And People Think They’re Aliens

Funny
What the heck is washing up on California's coast? Could they be alien eggs sent to hatch and take over our planet, or are they just some kind of bizarre jellyfish? As of now, no one is quite sure. However, many hypotheses have been put forward. Some say they are sea salps, a vertebrate that is similar to the jellyfish, or sea cucumbers. Others claim that they are "baby tremor monsters" or "alien eggs." After seeing them for myself, I'm still not sure what to think. The mysterious organisms have been found along Huntington Beach in Califronia. Lifeguards believe that strong El Niño tides washed them ashore.

This 14th-Century French Nobleman Made A Hobby Out Of Killing Children

Funny
When it comes to 14th-century French nobility, there are few characters more illustrious (and more terrifying) than Gilles de Rais. Rais began his life as a darling of the French military, and he even fought alongside Joan of Arc during the Hundred Years' War. However, later in his life, it was revealed that Rais was always up to no good. Early in his life, Rais was considered among the finest of the French nobility. Wikipedia After growing up in his grandmother's household, Rais curried favor among his noble peers and was admitted to the French court. From 1427 until 1435, Rais served in the French military. He was eventually named Marshal of France and spent time fighting alongside Joan of Arc. It was after he retired from the military, h...

When You See What They’re Using To Make Art, Your Skin Will Crawl

Funny
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTAT_ATF'); }); The makers of Raid roach spray just did something artistic, and it's quite possibly the weirdest project of all time. Walking into an art gallery, you never know what you're going to see. Just ask these unsuspecting patrons. Instead of pencils or paint, the creators who made these works used hundreds of dead cockroaches to create a stunning series. That's kind of morbid, isn't it? Poor little guys. That being said, it's kind of beautiful when you take a step back and just look at these pieces for what they are. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/bug-spray-ads/

No matter how long people have been doing it, taxidermy is pretty creepy. As a profession, it must mess with your mental well-being, too. Stuffing dead animals so that people can hang them up in their houses or celebrate their hunting kills is just... awful. These taxidermists must have finally suffered a mental break, because the final results of the subjects they were stuffing are just downright insane.

If You Thought Your Day At Work Sucked, Imagine Finding These In Your Desk Drawer

I've worked my fair share of odd jobs that left me with a permanent scowl on my face and moody for days. Most Americans have worked at least one job that they would describe as an absolute nightmare. Getting out of bed in the morning for a job you strongly dislike is the worst. I've been known to warn my coworkers not to speak or even look me in the eyes before I've had my first cup of coffee. But no matter how horrible my work days were, I've never experienced anything quite like this. Imagine surviving the workday commute only to come face-to-face with any of these 21 disturbing things found at work. Equal parts disturbing and outright disgusting, these are what nightmares are made of. 1. Nothing like demonic masks at eight in the morning. ...
