When seven-year-old Lexi was born, doctors diagnosed her with a rare condition that left her life hanging in the balance. One devastating side effect of the condition fused her upper and lower jaws together, which left her unable to breathe on her own. But when she was three years old, doctors presented her family with an unconventional solution. They assured them that they could make Lexi a new jaw out of rib bones. This girl’s story is one of perseverance and hope. Even at such a young age, it’s clear that she is a fighter. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/new-jaw/

The human brain is the most complex organ of any species, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be easily tricked. In the following video, you’ll be asked to stare at the black dot in the center of a photo of a castle. If you keep staring at the dot after the false color image has gone away, and the black-and-white photo returns, you’ll be surprised to see the castle in full color (even though it isn’t)! According to Metro, the illusion occurs because staring at the false color desensitizes the cone cells responsible for color, so when the black-and-white image [More]
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTAT_ATF’); }); The connection between twins is remarkable, if not a bit strange. Stories of twin telepathy have circulated the internet for years, from sharing pain to sensing each other from hundreds of miles away. Some of them even go as far as to consider themselves to be one person rather than two, like 42-year-old identical twins Paula and Bridgette Powers. The Australian women have been living together all of their lives, sharing a room, dressing alike, and creepily enough, speaking in unison. They say that it just comes naturally to them, but is it bizarre twin telepathy [More]
Just when you thought people couldn’t get more disgusting, this nonsense happens. Have you ever thought to yourself, “I wonder what human flesh tastes like”? Probably. Just admit it! But as you might imagine, cannibalism is illegal. In fact, laws are so strict that it’s even illegal to eat your own flesh. That’s why journalist Greg Foot recently had a biopsy of his leg muscle done and took it to an analyst. The analyst then determined what human flesh would taste like as compared to the protein-packed cuts we love. From there, Foot whipped up his own meaty concoction to [More]

In the 8th century BC, Homer wrote about cyclopes in his epic poem “The Odyssey” — but did he know that he was writing about a real medical condition? I never knew that cyclopes existed outside of stories, but it turns out that “cyclopia” is a real birth defect that occurs in both humans and animals. Cyclopia happens when the orbits of the eyes fail to develop into two [More]
The sight of a pelican yawning is something you’ll never, ever forget — no matter how much you might want to. Most animals look super adorable when they yawn. But when a pelican yawns, it looks like something straight out of a horror movie. Their head rolls back, their neck folds inside out…Honestly, it defies explanation. You just have to see it for yourself. These pelicans aren’t trying to be creepy, they’re just sleepy! Watch as they casually display the most horrifying yawn in nature.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); When a camera was mounted to a tree near Platte River State Fish Hatchery, it was only meant to broadcast the inside of a bald eagle’s nest. But the live cam set up by Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources captured much more than baby eaglets — in fact, people even believe that its footage is proof of the existence of a mythological animal. About 30 miles away from Traverse City, Michigan, the CarbonTV Eagle Cam picked up a dark, tall figure walking upright on the ground below the nest, which some claim is the legendary Bigfoot. [More]
For whatever reason, Peru is a hotbed of extraterrestrial activity. And the latest video to come out of the country is really freaking people out. In it, there’s a group of young men hanging out near a gas pump. At the edge of the frame, a small alien-like creature can be seen skulking around. The men notice it and give chase before it disappears into the darkness. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); Our visiting alien friends seem to be getting bolder and bolder. (via Coast to Coast AM) It could simply be a trick of the light or a flat-out hoax, [More]
This family was sitting at home one evening when they heard the strangest sounds coming from outside the house. When they went outside to see what was going on, creepy singing was coming from one of the trees on their lawn. What they found was a parrot sitting near the top of the tree…singing R. Kelly’s classic “I Believe I Can Fly.” In case you’re wondering, the parrot sang the first line, the woman followed with the second set of lyrics, and the parrot knew to continue the song by picking up after her! What’s even more amazing is that [More]
