are you fucking kidding me
This is the day you will always remember as one of those days when you realised that you were mistaken when you thought Sherlock Holmes could not get any gayer.
Indonesian doctors have extracted a total of 25 10-centimeter-long rusty nails mysteriously inserted into the legs of a three-year-old girl sometime in the last six months, according to a report by TVRI.
Kamaruddin, a doctor from the Andi Makassau Hospital in Pare-Pare, South Sulawesi, said they had also been able to remove a broken syringe needle but were yet to attempt to remove one final nail located dangerously close to the girl’s spine.
I have no source for this.
And that doesn’t bother me one bit.
What. Is. That.
The 22-inch-long (56-centimeter-long) fetus has a single, functioning eye at the front of its head—the hallmark of a congenital condition called cyclopia, which occurs in several animal species, including humans.
Earlier this year fisher Enrique Lucero León legally caught a pregnant dusky shark near Cerralvo Island (see map) in the Gulf of California. When León cut open his catch, he found the odd-looking male embryo along with its nine normal siblings. “He said, That’s incredible—wow,” said biologist Felipe Galván-Magaña, of the Interdisciplinary Center of Marine Sciences in La Paz, Mexico.
Once Galván-Magaña and colleague Marcela Bejarano-Álvarez heard about the discovery—which was put on Facebook—the team got León’s permission to borrow the shark for research. The scientists then x-rayed the fetus and reviewed previous research on cyclopia in other species to confirm that the find is indeed a cyclops shark.
Cyclops sharks have been documented by scientists a few times before, also as embryos, said Jim Gelsleichter, a shark biologist at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville. The fact that none have been caught outside the womb suggests cyclops sharks don’t survive long in the wild.
Overall, finding such an unusual animal reinforces that scientists still have a lot to learn, Gelsleichter added.
