  • An artist has created an “edible opera” using biotechnology which uses a cool facehugger-looking helmet that creates edible algae from carbon dioxide which feeds the algae. “The singer has trained herself specially for this project so that she can further enhance her lung capacity to produce the best quality algae possible. The slightest changes in pitch and frequency can apparently determine the algae’s color, texture and even whether it will be sweet or bitter.”

  • Peninsula instructors prepare youth for the zombie apocalypse. “Preparedness 101: Zombie Pandemic,” a graphic novella geared to teens and young adults prepared by the Centers for Disease Control, has the answers. ‘If you are generally well-equipped to deal with a zombie apocalypse, you will be prepared for a hurricane, pandemic, earthquake or terrorist attack,’ said CDC director of public health preparedness Dr. Ali Khan, who appears as a character in the comic book. The zombie comic started as a tongue-in-cheek campaign, but has evolved into a popular way to impress young people with the importance of emergency preparedness, he explains on the CDC web site.” You can read the CDC zombie pandemic graphic novel here.

  • Canadian man swallows severed human toe at a bar in Yukon and had to pay a $500 fine and leave town since now the bar can’t serve “Sourtoe Cocktails” anymore until they find another toe.  Adventurous drinkers would drink a cocktail of whiskey with the mummified toe inside and it had to touch their lips. As for the taste, one patron said: “The whisky was the only thing I could taste but the toe was like a leathery piece of jerky — with a toenail attached to it,” There are several videos at the link.

Twisted Tuesdays: Spontaneous Human Combustion

by Tracy Vanity

1359628293927

One of the most bizarre medical anomalies, spontaneous human combustion is when someone suddenly bursts into flame from within. Typically only the body remains burned even if flammable material is nearby. The cause for this has yet to be explained but it is certain that the fat in our bodies are highly flammable, so once that “inner fire” ignites, we’re toast!

recording

Most skeptics blame cigarette accidents for this phenomena but not everyone agrees…

According to self-proclaimed “parascientist,” Larry E. Arnold, there have been 200 known cases of spontaneous human combustion in the past 300 years. He even wrote a book about it:

ABLAZEcover2

The latest case of alleged SHC happened this past February when an 65-year-old Oklahoma man by the name of Danny Vanzandt was found burned to death in his home after reportedly burning for 10 hours. Nothing else caught on fire and police and autopsy reports ruled out homicide but not SHC.

You can read about 10 cases of spontaneous human combustion via io9. Also How Stuff Works has a greatly detailed article on the subject.

This documentary on SHC is rather informative and entertaining if you wish to know more about spontaneous human combustion, and who doesn’t?

So actual Bizarro paranormal phenomena or simply a freak accident? You decide…

Twisted Tuesdays: Epic FUCK CHRISTMAS Post, AKA Happy Horrormas!

by Tracy Vanity

To say I’m not a fan of Christmas would be an understatement. I’m dedicating this Twisted Tuesday to posting soothing images, videos, and songs to get myself, and anyone else who fucking hates Christmas, through this horrible fucking day.

Since Christmas sucks, I’m celebrating HORRORMAS! It’s basically Halloween with a Christmas theme. I recommend a Horrormas movie marathon of Jack Frost, Black Christmas (1974 version), Silent Night Deadly Night, and Don’t Open Till Christmas. Any other Horrormas films you recommend?

Tales from the Crypt has a great Horromas themed episode called “And All Through the House.” You can watch the whole episode right here:

There’s even a tales from the Crypt Christmas album! I just found out right now.

The “Unholy Night” episode from American Horror Story is awesome too. The entire 2nd season is incredible. I have a fetish for nuns and mental institutions but who doesn’t?

I’m starting to feel better already. This cheap Thai rum is helping too.

As always, Cyriak captures the true spirit of Horrormas with his incredible 2012 Horrormas video card.

Welcome to the Maya Apocalypse Bizarro! Let’s Party!

As the resident partial Maya, I felt it was my duty to represent my partial people by throwing a Maya Apocalypse party through Bizarro Central.

First, the world is not going to end on December 21st, 2012. Y2K 2.0, surprise, surprise.

maya

The Maya calendar resets to 0, which means an epic new beginning, not a cataclysmic end. It’s like a mega-New Year except instead of it representing an end to 365 days, it’s an end of a B’ak’tun which equals 394 years!

The Maya are celebrating by conducting fire ceremonies and giving offerings to Mother Nature.

apocalypto-7

But just because there won’t be giant fireballs hitting your city or zombies ripping into your delicious skull, doesn’t mean you can’t still celebrate yet another Apocalypse.

To get you pumped for this year’s doomsday, I have complied an epic 21-song Maya Apocalypse Party soundtrack for your end-of-the-world enjoyment. This Maya Apocalypse Party soundtrack includes music from Tiny Tim, Nancy Sinatra, Deltron 3030, Nine Inch Nails, Pixies, Rudimentary Peni, David Bowie and more. There’s even a dark song in Mayan. The last video is my favorite!

BTW you can monitor the Apocalypse”LIVE UPDATES” via Russia Today.

You should always live your life as if it’s the Apocalypse but this is Bizarro Central, I know you already do. See you on the other side!
