Google : plastic surgery

I don't get it! Isn't plastic surgery suppose to make you look better? When did the industry become so superficial! When they first came up with the idea of plastic surgery, it was to help burn victims and people who were disfigured in accidents and such! Now Hollywood has pissed all over an industry that was meant to help people and left it's ugly stench behind for all of us to suffer! Why do all these actors insist on not accepting their age and allowing this monstrous transformation to take place!! Why do they all look like aliens with their eyes all pulled back and not a single wrinkle to signify an expression!! Whatever! Here are a few monsters... try to not be afraid!

Google : shruken heads

Shrunken heads are a tad creepy... ok, all out creepy I know! But I was curious about them and how and if they were real. Upon googling them, I discovered that in the Amazons, many tribes shrink heads as a traditional practice! Warriors would catch the enemy and decapitate them right away! The way it is done is by removing all the skull, bones and cartilage. The eyes and mouth are sewn shut and the head is boiled in a hot pan for 2 hrs! When removed from the pan, the skin is dark and rubbery and the head has shrunken down to one third of it's size! They then use stones and sand to sculpt the facial features! The whole process takes about 1 week! After the warrior returns to his village, he wears the head around his neck to display his manliness!! It's amazing what you can learn on the internet! Enjoy the creepy pics below! All real, from universities and museums around the world!

Google : scary plants

When I googled scary plants, I actually learned something! Who knew! Most of the plants below are carnivorous, which means they lure in their prey - usually pollinators like bees and such - and eat them!!!! Ya, pretty intense stuff! Most of them has some sort of sticky substance that glues the insect to them so the little suckers are doomed! Take a peek.....
