“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.”
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".
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.
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.
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..
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.
