This Year’s VMAs are Cursed

scary britney spearsThe 2014 VMAs haven’t even begun and they’re already more interesting than they’ve been in a long long time…

So far, Suge Knight was shot, Nicki Minaj’s dancer was bit by a snake during rehearsals, Iggy Azalea fell backwards off the stage AAAND this year’s show is officially cursed.

Knight is currently in intensive care recovering from stomach and arm injuries caused by gunfire at Chris Brown’s pre-party, Iggy Azalea and Nicki Minaj’s dancer – who was attacked by a boa constrictor during a run-through of “Anaconda” – appear to be fine.

Individually, we could assume that Tupac cursed Suge Knight from the grave for being involved in his murder and Nicki had bad karma after cursing Iggy Azalea for stealing her thunder, OR we could apply actual logic and say that Suge is a known gangster and Iggy’s ass and gravity are as deadly a combination as wild animals and human dancers.

All I have to say is, this is what happens when you don’t invite Britney Spears.

These ‘Healed’ Snake Bite Photos Are Still Traumatizing

Rankin wrote that the snake, a Fer-de-Lance pit viper, lunged at him from under a fallen tree, poisoning him through his boot.

 “It took about 2 hours to get to hospital. I hobbled, was carried and choppered to San Jose. Lucky it was so quick,” he said after someone on Twitter asked about his treatment.

Here’s the first, gross-yet-fascinating post-surgery photo of his zombie foot:  CLICK for eye-burning pain…

Man Vs. Wild Producer’s Foot Skin Removed By Vicious Reptile

Bear Grylls man vs wild I’ve looked at the photo Bear Grylls shared with his Twitter followers of his producer’s snakebitten foot multiple times, mostly because I was warned not to by all the websites that covered it.

And it’s still so gross. Grosser than Kevin Ware’s leg bone and slightly less gross than the legless Boston marathon bombing victim. Yet I’m intrigued by all these sick wounds because I’m a sad freak. Or maybe I was a doctor in another life. Or a sadist. Sadist doctor.  Click for picture…

Lungless, Limbless Amphibian Discovered In India, Neither Worm Nor Snake

With all the endangered and extinct life forms out there it’s refreshing to hear about something new. It may not look like much, but several types of legless and armless amphibians called caecilians were just discovered in northeast India.

These animals, who lay transparent eggs and keep a watchful eye on their young for up to three months, are completely new to us. The team of scientists who found them spent five years and 2,000 hours searching/digging, revealing at least three previously unknown species.  Continue reading “Lungless, Limbless Amphibian Discovered In India, Neither Worm Nor Snake”
