Table which is made entirely of human body parts

“Made by Efisio Marini, Italian naturalist doctor, and offered to Napoléon III. this table is formed of petrified brains, blood, bile, liver, lungs and glands upon which rests a foot, four ears and sections of vertebrae, which are also petrified.” 


Buddha statue

A traditional Buddha statue dating back to the 11th or 12th century. A CT scan and endoscopy carried out by the Netherlands-based Drents Museum at the Meander Medical Centre in Amersfoort, showed the ancient reliquary fully encases the mummified remains of a Buddhist master known as Liuquan of the Chinese Meditation School. While it was known beforehand the remains of a person were inside, another startling discovery was made during the scan: where the organs had been removed prior to mummification, researches discovered rolls of paper scraps covered in Chinese writing. The Liuquan mummy has since been transported to Hungary where it will be on view at theHungarian Natural History Museum through May of 2015.

Isn't this beautiful?

A small Japanese puffer fish is the creator of one of the most spectacular animal-made structures. To impress the female puffer fish, the male labors 24 hours a day for a week to create a pattern in the sand. If the female finds his work satisfactory, she allows him to fertilize her eggs. She then lays them in the middle of the circle, leaving the male to guard the eggs alone.

Alex and I will have so much fun

So, even though I promised Alex to NOT buy more stuff I couldn't help myself. I just think it is too hard not to get these games when we have a Nintendo 64 and they didn't cost that much at all. 300 SEK (about $34)

It was actually Alex who bought me the Nintendo as a bithday gift some years ago. Not only did I get the Nintendo but Zelda. It was that gift that told me "this guy really likes me".

baby boy born without a nose

Timothy Eli Thompson was born premature on March 4 without any nasal passages or sinus cavities, a condition so rare it only has a one in 197 million chance of happening. Welcome to the world little one!

first human head transplant

The first man set to undergo a head transplant has been revealed, saying that he finds the controversial surgery “very scary, but also very interesting”.
Valery Spiridinov is set to be the first person to undergo the operation. It will be carried out by controversial Italian doctor Sergio Canavero, whose optimistic plans have mostly been met with scepticism.
But Spiridonov — who has the rare genetic Werdnig-Hoffman disease, which gradually wastes away muscles — says that he is willing to undergo the risky procedure to give himself a chance at living in a healthy body.
“Am I afraid? Yes, of course I am. But it is not just very scary, but also very interesting,” Spiridonov, speaking from his house in the Russian town of Vladimir about 120 miles from Moscow, told MailOnline.
“But you have to understand that I don't really have many choices,” he said. “If I don't try this chance my fate will be very sad. With every year my state is getting worse.”
Spiridinov said that he has spoken with Dr Canavaro over Skype but they are yet to meet. The Russian man was chosen from a number of people that emailed and wrote to Canavaro to ask to undergo the procedure, he said.
Canavaro raised scepticism earlier this year when he said that he would be able to carry out the procedure within two years.  Other medical experts called the procedure unlikely, and rare, as well as highlighting the fact that it would never be used for those that simply want to replace an ailing body. Some have even compared Canavaro to Frankenstein.

Fun Fact

Everything's Gonna Be Alright

I haaate my face. It is so unsymmetrical! My jaw is very square shaped, one of my eyes is more "baggy" then the other..well I could point out every millimeter of my skin and tell what I hate about it. Yet, I'm really getting more comfortable with my face and body the more time goes by. Perhaps I'm growing up?! It is pointless to hate something you are stuck with for the rest of your life. And I feel lucky to be alive and healthy. It is important to not dig too deep in self doubt, it makes you blind to all the good things you have in life. Even if I would go through plastic surgury to be beautiful I have a hard time to believe that I would find myself pretty anyway. I'm always gonna be "one of the ugly girls" or "awkward" or "UFO". That's what people told me. And when I in defense told them that "I am proud of who I am" they laughed right at my face. Cause who could be proud of being an alien? Many years later I'm still battling these things. I'm done being effected by creeps. And right now, it feels good being alien.


Late night fun

Well, I love to play with makeup. But before you go to bed is the absolute perfect time for it. This makeup was from a week ago I think. I just got this fun idea in my head and had to try it out! Hard to photograph with the bad light from the computer screen. Didn't really think that through..

Treasure - on it's way home to me

It's been a long time since I purchased a beauty like this. I collect stones but haven't bought one in ages. Many in my collection are actually regular "boring" stones. But I have some more impressive ones and are dying to get more precious stones.

Urgh roots..
