Your Favorite Hollywood Hunks Get A Sex Change

Say what you want- I think some of these guys can actually pull it off. Ms. Hanks is looking particularly nice. Some of these gentlemen don’t even look like anything has changed- all Hef would have to do is grow his hair out and throw on some clip-on earrings.

Horrific, But Beautiful Photos Of Facial Reconstruction

You may remember an earlier piece about Gottfried Helnwein, a painter who did some incredibly haunting interpretations of the photos you see above. These are the patients of Harold Gillies, battle surgeon and general badass. Not all of these repairs were nice to look at, but having a face, however goofy or damaged, just makes you feel human, normal. That was the goal of these surgeries.

This guy Surgery Wizard perfected the technique of using a pedicle, which is the tube of skin you’ll see in some of these pictures. By creating a closed flap of skin and stretching it out, you can use the newly generated skin to repair damaged tissue without leaving a wound open to infection. Most antibiotics were still in the experimental phases, so keeping a wound clean and free of bacteria was tantamount to the success of an operation (and, of course, the life of the patient). Incredible, pioneering work by this dude.

9 Incredibly Strange Animals That Really Exist

Here are some more of the rarest and weirdest animals you’ll ever see. Some of these appear to be hybrids (like the hummingbird moth or the zebra-deer-pig up there), while others look like they are straight out of Mars. I love space travel and all, but before we go all crazy exploring the cosmos (which we should still totally do), it’s nice to remember that we’ve got plenty of aliens right here on Earth.
