31 Crazy Before And After Photos Of Korean Plastic Surgery

Quote:
South Korea has the highest worldwide per capita rate of plastic surgery. According to Jezebel, 1 out of 5 women in Seoul has undergone some kind of procedure, but many men have had surgery too.
The most popular operations include eyelid surgery, to make the eyes appear larger, and getting one's jawbone shaved or chiseled down for a more V-shaped look.
Some sources say that the rise of K-pop has encouraged the trend of going under the knife.

Genetics will play hell with people as surgery doesn't change the DNA. Beautiful people making ugly babies because both changed how they looked.

Russian Bears Are Hooked on Huffing Jet Fuel Until They Pass Out

In a display of blatant disregard for Nancy Reagan and her pleas to the contrary, Russia's bears, no longer able to resist the sweet temptation of gasoline, have found themselves suffering from a good, ol' fashioned jet fuel addiction.

More specifically, it's the bears living on the Kronotsky Nature Reserve that have taken to huffing jet fuel out of old barrels until they're woozy enough to hit the ground. The adorable, 1,200 pound junkies will even go so far as to actively stalk helicopters for their fix, scavenging for and sucking up any excess fuel as it leaks onto the soil.

This only has one simple explanation:

Moist people would try their best to stay OUT of jail. I guess this guy REALLY wants in.

I'm sure there are easier ways to get that wish granted than that.

I hate the obsession with plastic surgery, especially the eyelid. It took me years till I learn what was so special about double eyelid, and I still don't see great change with double eyelid surgery.

What about dry people?

And on a serious note, it's better he does this to get in than rob/kill someone, which is the usual go-to.

Some of them really needed it, but most don't and go overboard. Those girls that get their eyes wider and animeish freak me out.

The tallest trees catch the most wind.

That’s an expression I frequently use when asked to defend EA’s place in the gaming industry. And it comes to mind again this week as we get deeper into the brackets of an annual Web poll to name the “Worst Company in America.”
I did find it amusing the bullet points he cheery picked to respond to. The only legit thing he really has is the last one, since they do allow that sort of thing. The second point is hilarious because 1) they don't give you a choice since they made all their games exclusive to Origin which forces people to use it and 2) any email you may have used in the past to register a game prior to Origin is considered a account - my friend has 3, for example. The first is just bad design decisions, if they really wanted to prove anything they should patch it so it becomes an optional feature - but they won't do that. The third, to me would be more related to poor implementation of DLC, or the trend where stuff that would have been free or included in the past now has to be paid for. As for the fourth, I couldn't care about Madden, never played it.

Dunno if I'd call them the worst company, but they do some really stupid things to piss of their consumers.

Man buys toy poodles, discovers they’re actually ferrets on steroids

An Argentinian man who thought he bought a pair of poodles at an outdoor market in Buenos Aires brought them home to the vet only to be told they were actually ferrets on steroids, reports the Daily Mail.
Reminds me of this story.
