Wind through your.. Armpipe?

We already talked about the artificial windpipe that was grown and used for implants. A lot of it was pioneered by Dr. Alexander Seifalian, and since the beginning even more advancements have been made. 

One interesting method that was adapted by a team in Belgium was to implant the trachea into the patient’s arm before the actual transplant. By doing this, the trachea was able to have adequate blood supply from creating its own vessels to grow to its full potential, and also gave it an opportunity for the patient not to be immersed in immunosuppressive drugs for an extended period of time. 

Of course there are other thoughts and objections, but it is always exciting to see such innovation!

If you thought the post on twins sharing consciousness was awesome, wait until you hear this.

A 44-year-old French man one day went to the trip to the doctor’s because he felt a pain in his left leg. He’s a married man with two kids and a steady job.

Doctor’s found that he had hydrocephalus as a child (when your brain is filled with fluids) so they decided to run some brain scans.

What they found was that the majority of his head was filled with fluid. Over time, the buildup caused his lateral ventricles to swell so much that his brain had been flattened to a thin sheet.

Doctors estimated that his brain mass had been reduced by at most 70%, affecting the areas in charge of motion, language, emotion, and, well, everything.

Shockingly, he was fine. While his IQ was only 75, he wasn’t mentally challenged. He held a steady job, raised a family, and didn’t have trouble interacting with others.

Over time, his brain had adapted to all that pressure, and even though he had fewer neurons that most, Jacques was still a fully functional human being.

The doctors drained the fluid and while his brain is much smaller now, he is still a healthy individual with a normal life.

The toyol is said to be a mythical child spirit in south-east Asia. 

It’s when a shaman or a witch doctor uses a dead fetus to invoke a small child spirit.

Read the freaky methods they use on the dead fetus/child to envoke the spirit

A Toyol is like a child, so it needs to be treated as such. In order to foster a closer relationship with this creature, below offering should be presented:

  1. A cup of milk every morning.
  2. Some toys, clothing, sweets and biscuits.
  3. A black candle and incense accompanied with mantras.
  4. Some will smear a few drops the owner’s own blood to the Toyol statue.

A person who owns a toyol uses it mainly to steal things from other people, or to do mischief. According to a well-known superstition, if money or jewelry keeps disappearing mysteriously from your house, a toyol might be responsible.

One way to ward off a toyol is to place some needles under your money, for toyols are afraid of being hurt by needles. They are mainly used to get rich.
