This Man Holds A World Record For Something Insanely Freaky

Holding world records is cool. Holding world records for things like this? Not so much.

When we think of world record holders, we usually picture star athletes pulling off epic feats of physical fitness or people doing death-defying stunts in the name of Guinness. What we don’t usually envision is some dude popping his eyes out and keeping them like that for way, way too long.

But alas, here we are.

Yeah, I don’t think I can live the same life after seeing that. I think I’ll stick to working on the world’s largest stamp collection.

Hey, Guess What! Mites Are Probably Reproducing On Your Face Right Now

Having a perfectly clean face is something that a lot of people strive for, as evidenced by the billion-dollar skincare industry. In fact, you probably have a collection of cleansers, toners, moisturizers, and exfoliators hanging out in your bathroom…so how would you feel if I told you that your face is covered in mites right now?

Don’t freak out. D. folliculorum and D. brevis are the two species of mites that love chilling in our pores. Over the course of its 14-day lifespan, a mite will eat, sleep, and mate from the comfort of its own little pore.

These parasites are found on the faces of basically all adults. No matter how hard you scrub, you won’t be able to prevent new mites from moving in.

(via The Verge)

Fortunately, they’re pretty much harmless. Some believe that they are linked to rosacea, but that doesn’t affect too many people, and it’s not life threatening. We all just have to accept the fact that our faces are crawling with these little guys.

They Were Filming An Iguana When This Craziness Happened…What The Hell?

The “Planet Earth” filming crew was recently shooting footage of hatchling marine iguanas when they got a terrifying surprise.

Although snakes are known to eat iguanas, they typically hunt for their prey alone. It’s part of their nature that we all take for granted. Slippery, sneaky loners…that’s how I’ve always thought of snakes, until I saw this video. What the crew caught on camera is a never-before-filmed snake behavior. Take a look.

As a small iguana runs up a rock, a pack of snakes springs from the shadows. Incredibly, this is the very first time snakes have ever been filmed hunting as a group.

When This Little Tot Tries Broccoli, She Has The Most Appropriate Reaction Ever

For parents, it’s a never-ending battle to get kids to eat their vegetables.

When threatening to take away their favorite toys or finding new and creative ways to trick kiddos into eating their greens won’t do the trick, most parents find themselves getting more frustrated by the second.

Hoping to avoid the future hassle, this mom and dad decided to get their baby girl, Hazel, on the right track by instilling in her a love for veggies at an early age. While initially excited by the prospect of feeding time, the babe’s face soon drops.

When she first tastes broccoli, this adorable nugget has a reaction we can all understand.

Little Hazel is certainly not the first baby to hilariously protest yucky foods. Take this guy eating a lemon, for example.

He’ll never forgive Dad for this culinary offense.

You And The Kids Should Skip McDonald’s…Check Out This Horrible Big Mac Video

It’s no secret that McDonald’s food is bad for your health. Still, everyone needs a Big Mac every now and then, right?

After seeing this video from YouTubers Let’s Melt This, you might change your mind. Over the last year, they’ve melted everything from steel nails to sneakers, but what happens (or doesn’t happen) to this McDonald’s Big Mac when it’s drenched with sulfuric acid is wholly disturbing.

Watching This Guy Feed His Pet Cockroaches Is Just Too Gross To Handle

As much as we’d like to think that cockroaches are the scourge of the Earth and that they serve no purpose, that’s sadly not the case.

In fact, they’re quite useful to reptile owners. As you can imagine, cockroach farming is not necessarily a popular hobby, so the few brave souls who do so willingly are hard to come by.

One of the most popular cockroach farms in the United Kingdom is the Roach Hut. To give you a sense of what life is like at this charming establishment, they have a whole YouTube channel dedicated to demonstrating how they go about their business.

In the video below, they show what feeding time looks like for roaches. Consider yourself warned, because this footage is nasty. Can you get through the whole video?

Yeah…my skin is crawling after enduring that nonsense.

I’m just glad my apartment is free of these buggers. I’m aiming to keep it that way.

When You See What They’re Using To Make Art, Your Skin Will Crawl

The makers of Raid roach spray just did something artistic, and it’s quite possibly the weirdest project of all time.

Walking into an art gallery, you never know what you’re going to see. Just ask these unsuspecting patrons. Instead of pencils or paint, the creators who made these works used hundreds of dead cockroaches to create a stunning series.

That’s kind of morbid, isn’t it? Poor little guys. That being said, it’s kind of beautiful when you take a step back and just look at these pieces for what they are.

This Is Why Trucks Carrying Human Waste Should ALWAYS Have Tops

Imagine that you are casually driving down the road. Suddenly, a semi truck nearly slams into you, and spills 27 tons of human waste in the process.

That’s exactly what happened on November 23 in Brisbane, Australia. As the security footage below shows, the semi was not at fault, but that didn’t make the situation any less awful. You’d think that a truck hauling around raw sewage would have a top on it, but that unfortunately was not the case.

The near wreck would have been a minor incident had the spilled sewage not been involved. I can’t help but wonder — how in the hell did they clean it all up?

I feel so bad for whoever was tasked with sanitizing that area. If you have any friends who are bad drivers, be sure to share this with them. Maybe the fear of a raw sewage spill will help them stay alert on the road!

They Wanted To Know What Made A Rattlesnake Rattle, So They Cut It Open

Rattlesnakes are considered some of the most sophisticated creatures in the world, and they have the tails to prove it.

Scientists believe these defense mechanisms to be highly sophisticated warning signals, which makes rattlesnakes uniquely terrifying. It’s a one-of-a-kind trait that not many people understand, so let’s take a closer look at what’s really going on when these serpents defend themselves.

The noises that they generate ward off predators. Their tails rattle about 50 times per second, and they can keep that up for hours on end if necessary.

The rattles are made of keratin, and every time snakes molt, their tails get a bit longer. When rattlesnakes travel, they keep their tails up to avoid damaging them, since they rely on those noisemakers for survival.

The guys in this video wanted to learn more, so they went ahead and cut a rattlesnake’s tail open.

And there you have it, folks. It’s never a bad idea to learn about creatures that pose a threat to humans. You never know when you’ll hear that telltale rattle.

I’m a big fan of quick Halloween costumes because yes, I’m a super-lazy person.
