Miracle Mike, the Headless Chicken

Millions of chickens lose their heads daily, though many cause a bit of excitement with children, no other headless chicken has ever lived as long as Mike.

Video's of headless chickens milling about are common as well; some with odd music choices that make for a strangely relaxing but morbid video:

Is Chicken Wearing an Oculus Rift "Free Range" Because it Thinks it is?

Oculus Rift for animals is the new coolest thing. Allowing caged pets and livestock to believe they are in beautiful natural surroundings full of stimulation and fulfillment is something we as a culture must focus some creative energy and investment in.

The Real Clayton Bigsby? Video Interview with the Black Man who Joined the Kolorado Ku Klux Klan - Ron Stallworth!

Although it sounds like something out of a Mel Brooks movie, it was actually an undercover police mission to gather intelligence about the plans of the Klans and the mission landed squarely in the lap of Officer Ron Stallworth who pulled it off and actually prevented 3 hate crimes in his community.

Although most of his interaction with other members was over the phone, sometimes even with David Duke himself (who boasted while on the line with Stallworth that he could always tell what color the person on the other end of a phone call was) he did have another officer 'stand in' for him when in-person meetings were required.  His in-person 'double' was actually another cop named "Chuck" who Ron jokingly refers to as "the white Ron Stallworth."

There was actually a movie called "The Black Klansman"!?!

Clayton Bigsby. 

Although the headline makes for a strange news headline, we do support and respect Ron Stallworth in his mission and can't imagine how difficult it must have been at times to not break cover and actively participate in certain conversations. Well don Ron!

The Melting People of The Brazilian village of Araras - Xeroderma Pigmentosum (aka "XP")

The affected community has the highest rate of XP, a condition that prevents the skin from being able to repair damage done by UV rays.

Doctor Vikram Singh Yadav has one of the better videos explaining Xeroderma Pigmentosum (XP) and provides a simple explanation:

Normally when you walk in sunlight, ultraviolet part of sunlight damages the cells of epidermis and DNA, this damage is usually repaired by set of enzymes known as nucleotide excision repair enzymes. But in this condition this ability to repair is lost. So exposure to sunlight must be avoided in such conditions. When exposed many times leads to formation of squamous cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma which is the cause of death in such patients who usually dies in their teenage group. Earlier symptoms are freckles on face, sunburn on minimal exposure to sunlight, skin blisters etc. Watch our previous video to have pics and video of Xeroderma Pigmentosum.
