Karni Mata, the temple of rats

18 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

The Karni Mata Hindu temple was built by Maharajah Ganga Singh in the early 1900s as a tribute to the rat goddess, Karni Mata and the most intriguing aspect of it, is that it’s home for over 20.000 worshiped rats.

The legend behind this temple is that Karni Mata, a matriarch from the 14th century was a reincarnation of Durga, the goddess of power and victory. at one point one of her clansmen’s child died and she tried to bring it back to life only to be told by Yama, the god of death that he had already reincarnated as a rat. Karni Mata struck a deal with Tama, that all her dead clansmen would reincarnate as rats, until they were ready to be born again into the tribe.

It’s a nice story but I can’t stop thinking about how that place must smell…

The horned lady

8 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

The story behind these photos is, this lady came into the doctor’s office one day with that “beauty” coming out of her forehead and saying she had a bump on her head 20 years earlier, that later burst(!?!) and dried up, eventually turning into a horn. When it was removed, the horn had a length of 17 centimeters. Pretty strange…

Fattest Baby in the World?

81 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Look at these pictures and tell me if this looks like a normal 6 month old baby…He’s from Iran, and at the tender age of six months he already weighs over 20 kilograms. He weighed a normal 3 kilograms at birth, but the mother says since then he started gaining very fast, because he was asking for food every hour. They look happy in the pictures, but they should do something about the child’s eating disorder until it’s too late…

The Young and the Fearless

They may be young and short but kids often turn out to be a lot braver than most gown-ups. I mean how many of you would be willing to ride a Komodo dragon, or take a bath with a full grown python? I know I wouldn’t, so my hat is off to these little daredevils!

Eyelid Piercing, So “Cool”

32 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Not a long ago we showed you some pictures of people suffering from “over-piercing”, as we like to call it, folks who had either too many piercings, or just few and totally disturbing. Now we bring you the latest in piercing fashion, eyelid piercing, that’s right, eyelid, the piece of skin covering that incredibly sensible organ known as the eye. Others might find it cool, I think it’s plain stupid.

This is how a real man shaves!

This is for all the girls out there complaining about how they go through tortures like shaving their arms and legs just to look good for the men they love…Can you honestly say waxing your limbs is more painful then waxing your face? I think not…

This painful experiment was carried out by a young Russian from Celiabinsk, who wanted to prove to girls that what they’re doing isn’t nearly as painful as they think it is. Did he succeed? You tell me…

With strong teeth like his, you can basically bite through anything. He would be a good model for a toothpaste commercial.
