Vietnam War vet

okaruto:

A young soldier was set to return home after his stay in Vietnam during the war. The night before he was going to go home, he called his parents.

“I’ll be coming home tomorrow,” he started nervously, “but I have a friend who has nowhere to go. Is it okay if I bring him home with me?”

The parents were so thrilled with the news that their son would be coming home that they immediately agreed to house the guest.

“There’s something you should know about him…” he continued, listening to his parents’ tears of joy. “He stepped on a land mine and lost his arms and legs… But I really want to bring him home with me.”

With that, the parents went silent for a moment.

“A few days is fine, but we can’t handle taking care of a cripple,” they replied. “We can help your friend find a place to live while he’s with us, but we have our own lives. We can’t be bound to care for him forever.”

Upon hearing this, the soldier silently hung up on his parents.

The next day, they received a phone call from the police. The young soldier had fallen off of a building and died. When the parents saw their son’s body, they broke down crying.

I don’t even know how I stumbled across this video
But yes I’m going share this WTF moment with everyone. 

literally looks likes something from the first parasite eve video game

According to the video it was a student animation made at Gnomon School of VFX in 2009. It went viral and the characters are based on creatures from the Silent Hill series.

Mother Died is another short horror film I recommend. You might think you know what’s going on, but you don’t until the very end. 

Watch it here

I recommend not scrolling through the comments because that will ruin it for you.

What if a friend told you that they passionately felt as if they needed to cut off their own limbs?
That’s what body integrity identity disorder is. It’s people who feel a need to cut off their own limbs. The limb doesn’t hurt but for some reason they have a strong urge to remove it so they can feel “whole” again. 
This obsession usually starts in early childhood (often after one sees an amputee) and lasts for a lifetime. It’s also extremely specific. If someone with this disorder found a surgeon to cut off their legs, they will not be satisfied if it’s 3 inches from the knee as opposed to 4 inches like they wanted. If the cut is too low, they will be aware and uncomfortable about the small amount of “not-me” they still have attached to them. 
Some go to great lengths to get rid of their limbs. One person froze in leg dry ice until it was irreversibly damaged and a surgeon had to cut it off. Another shot his own leg, and others used chainsaws or homemade guillotines. 
Those who are successful are not disappointed, in fact they say that they are “whole” again and that are quite relived. It’s like silencing an annoying noise. 
This disorder does not respond to any drug intervention or psychiatric treatment. There hasn’t been much research done on it.

Cemetery fandom, here’s one for you.

As viral nova reports:

The grave is Nancy Kerlin Barnett’s (1793 – 1831). When the county decided to build the road through what used to be the local cemetery her grandson, Daniel Doty, was not happy. Doty went out and decided to guard his grandmother’s grave with a gun. He refused to move until they rerouted the road. Eventually the county gave in and built the road around the grave.

I hope I can have such loving grandchildren one day!

Things I wonder about: if you took a newborn child and exposed it to things we consider ugly: spiders, hideous monsters, and tell it that, that is beautiful, will it grow up with that altered sense of beauty? Or are things like that inherently considered unattractive?

probably the most interesting message I received about this

SPENT is an online game about surviving poverty and homelessness. Players must make the difficult decisions necessary to live for one month on $1,000, often having to choose between equally disagreeable options. The game ends when players either run out of money before the end of the month or make it through with money left over.
