Want to Prove You're a Man? Wearing These Gloves Will Turn You Into A Real Man

Gear  |  News


When can a man declare that he is already a man? How's this for a manhood initiation? A tribe in the Amazon forest has you put your hand into a glove that has bullet ants.
"These ants look like black, wingless wasps and their length can range between half-an-inch to an inch. The scarier thing about this bullet ant's sting is the toxins, neurotoxin and poneratoxin, which freeze the transmission of information by the nerve cells. The venom also causes uncontrollable shaking and throbbing pain that'll last for days. The scariest is, the Mawé boys don't need to get stung only once but many times more, from months to years"

Paralysed man walks again after cell transplant

Array
Gear  |  News
Darek Fidyka, who was paralysed from the chest down in a knife attack in 2010, can now walk using a frame.
The treatment, a world first, was carried out by surgeons in Poland in collaboration with scientists in London
.
Details of the research are published in the journal Cell Transplantation.
How the injury was treated
1) One of the patient's two olfactory bulbs was removed and the olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) were grown in culture
2) 100 micro injections of OECs were made above and below the damaged area of the spinal cord
3) Four strips of nerve tissue were placed across an 8mm gap in the spinal cord. The scientists believe the OECs acted as a pathway to stimulate the spinal cord cells to regenerate, using the nerve grafts as a bridge to cross the severed cord

Gear  |  News
You've seen it in several science fiction movies: Hibernation, or deep sleep. Nasa is backing plans to potentially put astronauts in a deep sleep during manned missions to Mars.
The proposal would see a crew 'hibernate' for up to 180 days, allowing them to make the journey of 350 million miles (560 million km) with a reduced need for food and water. The crew would be kept alive through intravenous feeding, before being woken at their destination by inhalation of a coolant gas.

'Mad Honey' : Psychedelic Honey

Array
Gear  |  News
"The dark, reddish, “mad honey,” known as deli bal in Turkey, contains an ingredient from rhododendron nectar called grayanotoxin — a natural neurotoxin that, even in small quantities, brings on light-headedness and sometimes, hallucinations. In the 1700s, the Black Sea region traded this potent produce with Europe, where the honey was infused with drinks to give boozers a greater high than alcohol could deliver.
When over-imbibed, however, the honey can cause low blood pressure and irregularities in the heartbeat that bring on nausea, numbness, blurred vision, fainting, potent hallucinations, seizures, and even death, in rare cases. Nowadays, cases of mad honey poisoning crop up every few years—oftentimes in travelers who have visited Turkey." [ link ]

Gear  |  News
The controversial cannibal burger has been developed by Messhead – a collaboration between London-based food creatives Miss Cakehead and Mess London chef James Thomlinson, an offbeat new promotional campaign for The Walking Dead's fifth season will give you a taste. Messhead  has developed a burger that's as close as possible in flavor to actual human flesh — without, you know, actually including any.
The final product? A burger composed of pork, veal, chicken liver, and bone marrow — though Messhead also clarifies that the taste of a real person would vary based on "age, the body part being consumed, and the method of cooking."
If you’re feeling adventurous, you can grab yourself a free bite of a human flesh burger on Tuesday 30th September from the Terminus Tavern pop-up in a secret location in East London. Non-Londoners can find the recipe for the burger on the London Mess Facebook page.

Jasmine Tridevil, a Florida massage therapist, underwent surgery to get just that. She spent close to $20,000 on the procedure.
"Tridevil told that she contacted more than 50 doctors before finding one who would give her the third breast. "It was really hard finding someone that would do it too because they're breaking the code of ethics," she said. The surgeon she found couldn't create a silicone areola, though, so she had one tattooed onto the implant, which is made from silicone and skin tissue from her stomach."
