Things unearthed on the Net

Here's some interesting/unusual stuff I've found online-- first, a photo of an item at the bizarre Museum of Forensic Medicine in Thailand:

Click on the picture above to find out what the exhibit is. (Hint: Joseph Merrick would sure miss 'em if they were his.)

Was The Boys From Brazil based on a real incident?

The 16-year-old Haitian girl above is Marlie Casseus, a young lady who has been assisted by The International Kids Fund. You can see more photos and read more about the surgical help she's received here, and make a donation to the fund as well.

The Chinese man below, Huang Chunsai, is someone you've probably already read about. He had a 33 pound benign facial tumor; and had surgery to remove much of it. Fortunately, he apparently survived what was described as a risky, even dangerous operation. His appearance, even after surgery, is startling, so much so that the photo is a link to a photo showing how he appears now. To see a slideshow and read about his case, go here.
