Human With Two Faces!

Human with two faces is a very rarely found in the world. But there were/are cases I have found. I cannot find the medical explanation. I would rather want to share with you something that is quite mysterious. I am speechless!

Bill Durks

Bill does not have “2” faces actually. He was born with a condition known as frontonasal dysplasia, a birth defect that occurs when the two halves of an embryo’s face fail to come together completely. He had a deeply cleft lip and palate and a bifid, or double, nose – each half having only one nostril. What you’re seeing in the photo as a third eye in the center of his face was painted on by Bill himself, to fool excitable carnival-goers. – Punkinatrix

Robert Owen ‘Bob’ Melvin

He was born Schuyler County, Missouri, on May 9, 1920, one of six children of Fred and Hazel Melvin. Throughout his life he was examined by doctors, but all were unable to find a diagnosis for his deformity; Bob said it was simply “god’s sense of humor”. In his later years, however, he was found to have neurofibromatosis, a disorder that causes the spontaneous growth of fibrous tumors. Manifestations of NF differ greatly from patient to patient; some simply have brown birthmarks called cafe-au-lait spots, while others are greatly deformed. As a child, he was barred from attending school because of the way he looked; however, he did manage to obtain an education. He excelled at math and often helped with the bookkeeping for the sideshows.

Sam Alexander

He was born a relatively average man. In his early 20’s he was actively pursuing a career in theater and had been recently promoted at the Shubert Theatre in Chicago when personal disaster struck. Although the details are a little sketchy, Sam was ultimately involved in a huge gasoline explosion that was the result of his own carelessness. While he was able to instinctively save his eyes by raising his arm, he received deep burns around his lips and lower face. Even more unfortunate, his wounds festered and became severely infected. Doctors were forced to remove much of his lower face and lips, practically to the bone. As a result, Sam Alexander was left with a permanent and disturbing teeth-gnashing grimace and a gruesome visage.

Chang Tzu Ping

He was born with a second face, consisting of a mouth with a rudimentary tongue and several teeth, a bristly patch of scalp, and vestiges of eyes, nose, and ears. The throat of the second mouth was imperforate and the lips could not move independently, but when Chang opened his mouth, the second mouth opened too. In his small village he was called ‘Two-Faced Chang’ and feared by local children, who thought him to be a monster. However, when he was around 40 years old, some American soldiers in China discovered him and brought him back to the United States. He had the second face removed surgically and returned to live the remainder of his life in his native village.

Lali

Mother Sushma holds her daughter Lali at their residence in Saini Sunpura, 50 km (31 miles) east of New Delhi, India, Tuesday, April 8, 2008. The baby with two faces, two noses, two pairs of lips and two pairs of eyes was born on March 11 in a northern Indian village, where she is doing well and is being worshipped as the reincarnation of a Hindu goddess, her father said Tuesday.

Edward Mordrake

 Edward Mordrake (sometimes written Edward Mordake) is claimed to be a 19th century heir to one of the peerages in England who had an extra face on the back of his head. According to the story, the extra face could neither eat nor speak, but it could laugh and cry. Edward begged doctors to have his ‘devil twin’ removed, because, supposedly, it whispered horrible things to him at night, but no doctor would attempt it. He committed suicide at the age of 23.

Weird Diseases

Diseases are something that we could trace and could not trace in a a human being. Some might be visible and some might remain invisible in human’s body. But, there are some cases that are very rare happen in the world of medic. Weird diseases also can affect human being. They are unexplainable and incurable (some). Let us sneak into some cases of weird diseases:

1. Hypertrichosis

Werewof Syndrome or Hypertrichosis

Hypertrichosis is really a blanket medical term that refers to excessive body hair. It can actually be generalized, symmetrically affecting most of the torso and limbs, or localized, affecting only a small area or location.

2. Progeria

Progeria

Progeria is a disease that produces rapid aging, beginning in childhood. The disorder has very low incidences and occurs in an estimated 1 per 8 million live births.

3. Argyria

The most dramatic symptom of argyria is that the skinbecomes blue or bluish-grey colored. That is why the patient looks blue in color. Argyria may be found as generalized argyria or local argyria. Argyrosis is the corresponding condition related to the eye.

4. Elephantiasis

Elephantiasis

Lymphatic filariasis, also known as elephantiasis, is best known from dramatic photos of people with grossly enlarged or swollen arms and legs. The disease is caused by parasitic worms, including Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi, and B. timori, all transmitted by mosquitoes.

Weird Pets

Pets are just cute and lovely. But these people are looking for opposite taste in choosing their pets. Weird though! Well, here I present to you the pets:

Cock

Might not be the weirdest pet of all time, but in western countries, raising cock as pet is quite rare.

Alligator or crocodile

This is weird! A child befriends with an alligator or crocodile (correct me if I am wrong). WOW! What a dangerous animal on earth?!

Scorpion

One of poisonous creature on earth. Well, maybe the poisonous sting has been removed. But, quite rare to me.

Chimpanzee

Quite rare though! Not many people can raise a chimp. Salute to this woman.

Bob the horny dog

Horny indeed. He would bang or at least tried just about any four legged animal that came his way. Dogs, sheeps, cat?!! You got to be kidding me!!

Giraffe

This is not a zoo nor safari! This is their home. A giraffe is their pet. WOW!

Weird and Freaky Animals

The first time I watch these photos, i was shocked. Are they real? Then I made some searches and found out that they are true. They are animals that we do not even know and watch lively, yet. Well, for those of you who have the same experience with me, I share with you the weirdness and freakishness of these animals surrounding us.

Komondor Dog

 Its long, thick, strikingly corded white coat (the heaviest amount of fur in the canine world) resembles dreadlocks or a mop.

White-faced Saki Monkey

Found in Brazil, French Guiana, Guyana, Suriname, and Venezuela.

Angora Rabbit

The Angora is one of the oldest types of domestic rabbit, originating in Ankara, Turkey, along with the Angora cat and Angora goat.

Aye Aye

 The Aye-aye (Daubentonia madagascariensis) is a strepsirrhine native to Madagascar that combines rodent-like teeth with a long, thin middle finger to fill the same ecological niche as a woodpecker.

Emperor Tamarin

 This tamarin lives in the southwest Amazon Basin, in east Peru, north Bolivia and in the west Brazilian states of Acre and Amazonas.

Hagfish

Hagfish are long, vermiform and can exude copious quantities of a sticky slime or mucus (from which the typical species Myxine glutinosa was named).

Leafy Sea Dragon

Named after the dragons of Chinese mythology, Leafy seadragons (Phycodurus eques) resemble a piece of drifting seaweed as they float in the seaweed-filled water. The Leafy seadragon, with green, orange and gold hues along its body, is covered with leaf-like appendages, making it remarkably camouflaged.

Axolotl

The species originates from the lake underlying Mexico City. Axolotls are used extensively in scientific research due to their ability to regenerate most body parts, ease of breeding, and large embryos.

Blobfish

The blobfish (Psychrolutes marcidus) is a fish that inhabits the deep waters off the coasts of Australia and Tasmania.

Star-nosed Mole

The Star-nosed Mole (Condylura cristata) is a small North American mole found in eastern Canada and the north-eastern United States. It lives in wet lowland areas and eats small invertebrates, aquatic insects, worms and molluscs.

Tarsier

Tarsiers have enormous eyes and long feet. Their feet have extremely elongated tarsus bones, which is how they got their name. They are also known to prey on birds and snakes.

Polychaete Worm

This worm is a four foot long multi leg giant sea worm.

Yeti Crab

Kiwa hirsuta is a crustacean discovered in 2005 in the South Pacific Ocean.

Titi Caca Frog

Deep in its azure waters Victorian naturalists found a rather curious looking frog, they marvelled at this new species poked at its flaps of skin and scratched their learned chins, there was only one name for this froggy fellow Telmatobius coleus – the aquatic scrotum.
