I’m sorry. I know. It can’t be unseen. I’ve traumatized you. But: the more you know, right? By showing you this, I might have just save you from the horror of hairy eyeballs. From The Daily Mail: “A 19-year-old Iranian man could see an unusually hairy problem. A rare cyst on his right eyeball sprouted hairs – impairing his vision and causing him discomfort every time he blinked. The hairy eyeball was the result of a limbal dermoid – skin tissue that can sprout hair, cartilage, sweat glands and even teeth. Doctors had to surgically remove the tumor – which measured 5mm by 6mm – after it began to interfere with the patient’s daily life. The New England Journal of Medicine reported the bizarre medical anomaly after it was submitted by doctors at Tabriz University of Medical Sciences in Tabriz, Iran. ’He did not have pain, but the mass caused vision defects, mild discomfort on blinking, and the intermittent sensation of the presence of a foreign body,’ the journal reported.”
From SF Indie Fashion: “Guests of the recent Supreme Beings fashion show at San Francisco’s SOMArts center were treated to a parade of unexpected silhouettes imbued with futuristic and conceptual twists fresh from the minds of emerging Bay Area designers Ilanio and Elena Slivnyak of IIMUAHII.”
MUST. HAVE. EYEBALL. HEADPIECE.
Well, this is upsetting. If you’re tired of watching kittens cuddle with horses, or whatever the interspecies intermingling of the day is, watch this video of a toad with a parasite in its eye. It’s a real palette cleanser. The eye looks like it’s about to pop, the worm looks like it’s doing the hokey pokey, and it’s obvious after 20 or 30 seconds that God has abandoned us all. And yes: GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD. (via The DW)
