Turns out 3D printing can do more than just insta-print guns, couture dresses and miniature models of Sad Keanu. In Ayan Mohamed’s case, the advancing technology helped to create her new face. When Mohamed was two years old, a stray bullet shattered her face as her family were fleeing the Somali civil war. Most of the tissue from her bottom eye socket, her whole top jaw and most of her cheekbone and palate was blasted away. Miraculously, she survived, but was left a devastating facial disfigurement that, due to its severity and her geographical location, could not be treated by traditional reconstructive surgery. For 23 years, she couldn’t close her right eye and she wore a niqab to hide her face. A pre-surgery charity appeal here shows the extent of her injury.

TLC has some pretty big balls putting this on the air. The cable network has just announced a special titled The Man With the 132 lb. Scrotum. Yes, this is happening. Yes, there are photos. We put them semi-discretely below the text, but beware: Once you see a man with a 132-pound scrotum, you cannot unsee him.

The special chronicles the challenges of Wesley Warren Jr., a 49-year-old Las Vegas resident who is living with a rare medical condition called “scrotal lymphedema.” The show will follow “Wes’s life as he deals with day-to-day challenges that are easy for most people. Due to the large size of his scrotum, Wes has difficulty with simple tasks like walking, preparing meals and even going to the restroom.” In the show and in public, Warren wears a hoodie to keep it his scrotum covered up.

Looks like ‘Carrot Top’ has found ‘Joan Rivers’ surgeon ..! YIKES SS.

What is up with this Face Job? Some celebrities really need to leave ‘the Knife’, ALONE. Hollywood has got the whole world thinking that ‘Plastic Surgery‘ is really a self-esteem issue. This is just an excuse to convince oneself that “there NOT really vein, in spite of the cars, the houses and the wardrobe”. It All BS! Handing a Surgeon $10,000 bucks to slice & dice your face is just plain old, Crazy and most times, NOT VERY PRETTY. Carving one’s face into a oblivion simply means you’ve run out of things to do in your Life and You need a Hobby. This has nothing to do with a persons insecurities. It merely means that this person has developed a narcissistic way of solving their personal issues .

Please people, understand that “…you cannot improve on what you look like with a knife. Knives leave scars”. If you wanna improve on how you look, start from the inside out. I guarantee You that even though it might not change what You see in the mirror, you sure as Hellwill Feel a whole lot better physically, emotionally and spiritually. Then, after accomplishing that,  it won’t matter to You what anybody thinks about how you look cause you’ll be too busy feeling good about YOU. I am not Judging mind you, just offering some alternatives to those in need. — Photo ©ourtesy of  Jayne County

Girls…try not “getting clocked” Today!

Being detected as a person who is cross-dressed. Occasionally, this is called getting clocked No transgendered person likes to get read, but the reality is that passing requires extensive practice, and sometimes training, hormone therapy, electrolysis, and cosmetic surgery. Much of this practice must be done in public, where the transgendered person will get read when he or she makes mistakes. A person who is prepared to accept this fact will be much more comfortable in public. One transsexual I know simply starts out from her home with the assumption that everyone will read her, and that that's OK. Even for her, though, this attitude is easier said than felt.
