10 Most Bizarre People on Earth

1.Ngoc: three decades without sleep

Sixty-four-year-old Thai Ngoc, known as Hai Ngoc, said he could not sleep at night after getting a fever in 1973, and has counted infinite numbers of sheep during more than 11,700 consecutive sleepless nights. "I don't know whether the insomnia has impacted my health or not. But I'm still healthy and can farm normally like others," Ngoc said. Proving his health, the elderly resident of Que Trung commune, Que Son district said he can carry two 50kg bags of fertilizer down 4km of road to return home every day. His wife said,


"My husband used to sleep well, but these days, even liquor cannot put him down." She said when Ngoc went to Da Nang for a medical examination, doctors gave him a clean bill of health, except a minor decline in liver function. Ngoc currently lives on his 5ha farm at the foot of a mountain busy with farming and taking care of pigs and chickens all day. His six children live at their house in Que Trung. Ngoc often does extra farm work or guards his farm at night to prevent theft, saying he used three months of sleepless nights to dig two large ponds to raise fish.

2. Bhagat: had his twin brother on his stomach

Sanju Bhagat's stomach was once so swollen he looked nine months pregnant and could barely breathe. iving in the city of Nagpur, India, Bhagat said he'd felt self-conscious his whole life about his big belly. But one night in June 1999, his problem erupted into something much larger than cosmetic worry. Mehta said that he can usually spot a tumor just after he begins an operation. But while operating on Bhagat, Mehta saw something he had never encountered. As he cut deeper into Bhagat's stomach, gallons of fluid spilled out — and then something extraordinary happened. "First, one limb came out, then another limb came out. Then some part of genitalia, then some part of hair, some limbs, jaws, limbs, hair."


At first glance, it may look as if Bhagat had given birth. Actually, Mehta had removed the mutated body of Bhagat's twin brother from his stomach. Bhagat, they discovered, had one of the world's most bizarre medical conditions — fetus in fetu. It is an extremely rare abnormality that occurs when a fetus gets trapped inside its twin. The trapped fetus can survive as a parasite even past birth by forming an umbilical cordlike structure that leaches its twin's blood supply until it grows so large that it starts to harm the host, at which point doctors usually intervene.

3. Yokoi: spent 28 years hidden after WWII

Shoichi Yokoi was a soldier, conscripted into the Imperial Japanese Army in 1941 and sent to Guam shortly thereafter. In 1944, as American forces reconquered the island, Yokoi went into hiding.


On January 24, 1972, Yokoi was discovered in a remote section of Guam by two of the island's inhabitants. For 28 years he had been hiding in an underground jungle cave, fearing to come out of hiding even after finding leaflets declaring that World War II had ended. "It is with much embarrassment that I have returned alive," he said upon his return to Japan, carrying his rusted rifle at his side.

30 Creepiest Trees on Earth

If you are a horror movie buff, you’ve certainly noticed the liberal use of trees to set the mood. Halloween is hardly complete without the image of a moon-lit and fog-laden tree. However, some trees have been molded by Mother Nature into specters of their own. Scary, frightening, or downright weird, the trees we’ve amassed in this collection will leave you wondering if Mother Nature herself digested some magic mushrooms.

Tree Monsters

1. This terrifying screaming tree was captured in Hither Hills State Park, Montauk, New York

2. A Medusa-like tree

3. An alligator eye caught on the bark of a tree.

The 5 Most Embarrasing Moments Of Nintendo’s E3 Conference

It’s easy to just forget this year’s Nintendo conference, pretend it never happened, or ignore it entirely. That won’t change the fact that by and large, it was a miserable trainwreck of failure and easily the company’s worst in history. What went wrong? Oh, about a thousand things, really, but nobody has time to relive it. That’s why we here at the-minusworld.com have truncated the list into something a bit more consumable. Pure, concentrated embarrassment. Enjoy.

#5 - Cammy Dunaway Talks About Her Failed Snowboarding Trip

Months of anticipation! Millions of sales! The spotlight is on you, Nintendo! Oh man, they’re totally going to announce the next Zel…who the f*ck is this?!? Cammy Dunaway’s Snowy Getaway was not exactly the megaton us gamers expected. She looked about one facelift away from approaching Joan Rivers status and the meds were definitely in full effect. Whoever thought her snowboard trip injury photos would make a great segue way to the announcement of Shaun White Snowboarding should be buried under an avalanche.

#4 - Reggie Promises Software For Core Gamers And Then Gives Us The Middle Finger

I swear! There’s more than just casual crap here! Animal Crossing: City Folk and Wii Sports Resort were not exactly what we had in mind when we were promised hardcore games a few weeks back. Your grandmother will be happy to hear about how things went down today (if she can still hear anything) but color us disappointed. What happened to Nintendo’s multi billion dollar war chest? Was all the money spent on toddler market research and adult diapers?

Amazing Toy Art: Munny

It's been some time now that I'm developing a big crush on Toy Art. Another day I caught myself stealing some. No, just kidding... I caught myself in a store taking a look at many toy art books... drooling all lover the place.

And now I was checking some Munnies at Flickr, and man, these are really great! I've also checked who much it costs at Kidrobot's, and it's kinda cheap, isn't it? Did anyone make a custom Munny? What about dropping a link to it? And for now, enjoy these awesome pieces. :)
