34 Panoramic Shots gone disturbingly wrong, wrong, wrong.

34 Panoramic Shots which illustrate why leaving all the photography decisions to your phone software, is not always the best decision Do not click link if you don't want to see images which simulate bodyhorror. Think videodrome-esque. As per usual YMMV. [more inside]

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.
