The Uncanny Wormhole

DeepDream, Google's code for visualizing neural networks, is being used like some unholy Lovecraftian Instagram Filter to produce disturbing, surrealistic photos and videos,including upping the psychedelic ante in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Many, many of the photos and videos are Not Safe For Life, Work, or Sanity. Almost all of them are very weird, especially the food ones.

The Mystery Behind an Eye That Changed Color

Months after Dr. Ian Crozier thought he had recovered from Ebola, he was stunned to find himself developing intense eye pain and fading vision. The inside of his left eye was still occupied territory, full of live, replicating virus. And one morning during this siege, he looked in the mirror and saw that his iris had changed from blue to green.

Try not to get stuck!

Deep Cave in Edwards, Texas, has a regular entrance, and a ...rather more claustrophobic one.

Hungry? How about a nice tarantula?

Fried spider is a regional delicacy in Cambodia. It is not clear how this practice started, but some have suggested that the population might have started eating spiders out of desperation during the years of Khmer Rouge rule, when food was in short supply. [more inside]

34 Panoramic Shots gone disturbingly wrong, wrong, wrong.

Only marginally less gross than that tongue eating fish parasite

Sialoliths are typically small, like María’s. But occasionally physicians run across monsters (sometimes referred to as megaliths): One paper describes a seven-centimeter stone the size of a “hen’s egg.” The big ones, of course, must be surgically removed, something I learned when I stumbled across a horrifying, yet mesmerizing video of a sialolith excision. (That video led me to another, and then another, and . . . well, let’s just say the rabbit hole of sialolith surgeries is bottomless. I’ll save you some time and just point you to the best one.) For smaller stones, however, doctors like to avoid the scalpel. While surgery might save some pain and suffering, the salivary glands are really close to some facial nerves that you definitely don’t want to cut.
So it turns out the salivary glands can also suffer from something like kidney or gall stones. Yes, the author, Cassandra Willyard, is so kind as to link to a video of a sialolith extraction. Link via Io9, who have a nice image of a megalith taken out of somebody's salivary glands.

Achtung baby

The world's tallest water slide is about to open in Kansas City, MO at the Schlitterbahn Kansas City Waterpark. To ride Verrückt, riders climb 264 steps to the top before being strapped into a raft ("NO Wedgies!") and plumetting seventeen stories. Statue of Liberty for scale. The current (tentative) opening date is June 5, 2014. Cheesy promotional video.
