Pregnant Through A Stab Wound?

OK, so I am not even going to slightly pretend to understand the medical complexity of this case. But suffice it to say it is craaaazy. Here are the basics: A 15-year-old girl in South Africa was born with no vagina—she’d never had a period, etc. But she did have a boyfriend and was having oral sex with him since intercourse wasn’t happening. While giving him a blowie, an ex caught them mid-act. The three of them got in a knife fight and the girl was stabbed twice in the abdomen. She went to a hospital, where docs stitched her up. But over the course of the next few months, her stomach began to expand. 278 days after her first trip to the hospital, she was admitted again. Surgeons did an emergency C-section to see what was up—and lo and behold, they pulled out a baby boy who was very much alive. Experts think that the girl’s boyfriend’s sperm must have been in her stomach when she was stabbed, and since she just happened to be ovulating at the time, it was able to fertilize an egg. Geez, it’s like those things have a homing device or something. [Discover Magazine] Keep reading »

How To Fall Out Of A Plane And Not Die

I’m not a huge fan of flying. I’m better about it than I used to be, but, you know what? Sailing 30,000-plus feet over the ground in a flying sardine can driven by forces I do not have the intellectual capacity to understand is not what I would refer to as “soothing.” More like “terrifying.” Sometimes, I wonder, mid-flight, what I would do if the plane suddenly exploded. And I was still alive. And I’m sailing down to earth trapped in my seat. You know, like, waiting to crash. What would I think? What would I do? Then, I try and think about something else. But fear no more! Thankfully, Popular Mechanics has taken the time to explain to you how to fall 35,000 feet through the sky — and survive. Keep reading »

I Need A Man With A Big Tank

In this, um, very creative recruitment video for the Austrian army, prospective soldiers learn about the perks of enlistment: If you thought a hot sports car got you a lot of chicks, wait until you see what happens when you show up in a tank, man. You will have to swat the broads away with a stick! I know that if I saw a guy driving a tank down the middle of my street, the first thing I’d do would be to run after it and try and get my hands on the big-gun operator trapped inside. I mean, wouldn’t you? Apparently, the video isn’t an original. It looks as if it was ripped off one that the Ukranian armed forces did first. Check it out after the jump. Keep reading »

Cute Alert: Inside Out Teddy Bears!

Adorable! Boing Boing points us to photographer Kent Rogowski‘s weirdly cute portraits of teddy bears that have been turned inside out. According to Rogowski, “These bears, which have lived and loved and lost as much as their owners, have suffered and endured through it all.” In other words, they’re just like us, “revealing their inner core [so we] might we better understand our own.” I wonder what happened to my Pooh?

Ditch Your Running Shoes For Bare Feet?!

Runners who prefer going barefoot are less likely to experience serious injury than their shod peers, according to new Harvard research. Researchers found that barefoot runners land on the balls or middle of their feet first, which causes virtually no impact collision. Runners wearing shoes hold their feet differently, and their heels tend to hit the ground first. “Most people today think barefoot running is dangerous and hurts, but actually you can run barefoot on the world’s hardest surfaces without the slightest discomfort and pain. All you need is a few calluses to avoid roughing up the skin of the foot,” said Daniel Lieberman, one of the researchers. He and his colleagues studied runners who always wore running shoes and runners without shoes. They found that the barefoot runners had a springier step and used their calf and foot muscles more efficiently. But don’t abandon your running shoes just yet. The transition has to be gradual in order to strengthen the calf and foot muscles. Evolution is in the barefoot runner’s favor though, since humans have been running long-distance for millions of years. The modern running shoe wasn’t even available until the 1970s.

What?! Chinese Woman Wants Plastic Surgery To Look Like Jessica Alba

Lordy, Lordy, I hope this news story is as fake as it sounds: a 21-year-old Chinese woman identified only as Xiaoqing allegedly told the Shanghai Daily newspaper she is so desperate to win back her ex-boyfriend that she’s getting plastic surgery to look like Jessica Alba. “I want to do something to challenge myself and build a strong personality through it,” the woman allegedly said. Well, considering Jessica Alba does not look even remotely Asian, Xiaoqing’s got her (sad, sad) work cut out for her!
