    Belly button lint? You got a belly button finger, bro! 20-year old Chinese furniture worker Wang Yongjun lost the tip of his middle finger flipping the wrong person the bird to a circular saw. It's all good though because doctors sewed his hand to his stomach and apparently ... / Continue →

    Penny pincers. Get it?! Me neither, the guy next to me at Starbucks told me to say it and he's been in the bathroom for 40 minutes now which is bad news. This is a video of a surgeon from Swedish Hospital in Seattle (THAT MAKES ZERO SENSE) showing off the dexterity of a Da V... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like krazy straws, lab-grown urethras created from patients' own bladder cells have been successful transplanted and functioning properly. Please note: this doesn't mean you should go act all loosey-goosey with your wiener-tube. It's probably st... / Continue →

    Scalpel! I honestly can't believe these weren't invented earlier but they probably were and I just never heard about them because nobody keeps me in the loop. CARING MEANS SHARING DAMMIT! "Well, if you must know, I think I'm developing a rash on my--" UGH, ENOUGH ABOUT YOU ... / Continue →

    I'm pretty sure that's not how you sell phones. Sell phones, get it?! LIKE CELL PHONES, DUMMY! This is a commercial for the new Sony Erickson 'Xperia Play' (Aka 'the PSP phone'). In case you couldn't tell, it's kinda dark. And creepy. Like my uncle's basement, but without... / Continue →

    This is a series of experimental gummi bear surgeries. This is only one though, and not even the best, so you'll have to hit the jump to see them all. I particularly liked the heart transplant, brain transplant and dinoplasty. That reminds me: when I was a kid I used to brea... / Continue →
