Seven decades have passed without any food or water claims a man 83
years of age. Indian doctors have recently started experiments on him
in hopes of improving survivor skills training for men in the
military. Doctors for military men hope that their experiments on
Prahlad Jani will help soldiers better their survivor strategies.
In a hospital in the western city of Ahmedabad, the long hair and
bearded Gujarati man is under twenty-four hour surveillance among
testing by thirty doctors. This testing will go on for three weeks
straight. In addition to two cameras set up in his hospital room, he has
a mobile camera attached to him for when he leaves his hospital room.
This will guarantee complete validity to his claims of abstinence from
any food or water for seventy years.

35-year-old Kobi Levy,
who lives in Tel Aviv, Israel, has a radically different taste in
footwear. Levy’s creations are often bizarre and awesome at the same
time. Take his chewing gum shoes for instance. It may look like this
person has unwittingly stepped on a blob of chewing gum on the pavement -
but the sticky mess is actually a part of the shoe.

Lately I have had an overwhelming lust for life, and for the people I share this planet with. Therefore, I have taken the time to put together several hubs, depicting ordinary people
in ordinary ways. I think there is much to be said about everyday
people. It is the people that continue to go unnoticed that keep this world alive and energizes. Therefore help me celebrate the lives of ordinary people, by reflecting upon their images. Amongst the turmoil of the Middle East, we forget the reality of what people are really like over there.
I think that is why so many Americans,
find it hard to imagine themselves, in such a far off place. However,
after peering on some of these lovely street faces of Jerusalem, I
realize they are just like you and me. That is when I decided to share
my realization with you. Therefore, and without further ado here are
some everyday photographs, featuring ordinary people no less, that call Jerusalem home.

an incredible story about a girl who has to eat 60 meals a day. Lizzie
Velasquez is 21 and she lives in Texas. Doctors are still puzzled with
her conditions. Her height is 5ft 2in (1.58m), but she weighs only 56
pounds (25 kg).
She must eat 60 small meals a day, every 15-20
minutes (5000-8000 calories) and she still has almost 0% body fat.
Lizzie says that she gets very excited if she gains even one pound. She
has a brother Chris and a sister Marina, and both of them are normal.
Lizzie was born four weeks prematurely - weighing just 2lb 10oz (1.2
kg). Her parents say that they had to buy dolls' clothes for Lizzie
because baby clothes were too big.
Are a fans of body modification?? have you heard about Corset piercing before?? Corset Piercing this term also called as ladder piercing.. we think this kind of body piercing are really extreme..
sometimes called ladder piercings, are a series of surface piercings
arranged up the back in two vertical columns. The piercing are located
in the spot where the eyelets would be if one was wearing a corset. It
is a symmetrical piercing with an equal number of holes on each side. As
few as four holes can be used (two on each side) up to as many as the
expanse of skin will allow. Most people
who get corset piercings use standard captive bead rings which a length
of ribbon is then laced through. Although ribbon or lace are the most
popular materials, rope and chain have also been used at times. While
this all looks lovely, it is only intended for temporary use. If kept
in, surface piercings such as these that use this type of jewelry will
most likely not heal. The rings will migrate around the skin as they are
rejected by the body, the wounds will become irritated, and nine times
out of ten will leave horrible, unsightly scars all along the back.
Sometimes hypodermic needles or bondage/slave rings are used instead
with the same effect. To avoid this, the jewelry should be removed
promptly after the fun has been had (corset piercings are common in
fetish performances) and the pictures have been taken (they are also
popular subjects for photo shoots.)
Splattered with paint, Angela Fraleigh's female subjects look like
they're desperately trying to say something. There's an uneasy vibe in
her pieces, making her work even more captivating. Creating a lot of
ambiguity, Fraleigh invites us to draw our own conclusions.
