An illegal inmate tattoo reading “Katie’s Revenge” on the forehead of convicted rapist and murderer Anthony Ray Stockelman. 
The tattoo was forcibly given to Stockelman while in prison by another inmate after learning that he had raped and murdered 10-year-old Katie Collman.

Please do this to every rapist with disease infected needles.

Coldest Star Found—No Hotter Than Fresh Coffee
According to a new study, a star discovered 75 light-years away is no warmer than a freshly brewed cup of coffee.
Dubbed CFBDSIR 1458 10b, the star is what’s called a brown dwarf. These oddball objects are often called failed stars, because they have starlike heat and chemical properties but don’t have enough mass for the crush of gravity to ignite nuclear fusion at their cores.
With surface temperatures hovering around 206 degrees F (97 degrees C), the newfound star is the coldest brown dwarf seen to date.

There’s a legend here in Brazil about a ghostly creature called the “Hairy Leg” (Perna Cabeluda). It’s just a ghostly, disembodied hairy leg that hops around kicking people, and then disappearing into the night.

This is Alexandrite, it’s also called “emerald by day, ruby by night”
It changes colour based on whether the light source is from the sun or from a candle.
It does this because Alexandrite strongly absorbs yellow light due to chromium ions in its crystal structure, leaving the other colours behind. Light from the Sun emits all colours, but it peaks in the green, and our eyes are most sensitive to green, so in Sunlight Alexandrite is green.
Incandescent lights are things like candles and filament light bulbs. They also emit all colours of light, but they peak far, far into the red, so there’s not nearly as much green or blue, so under those, Alexandrite is red. 
Gemstones are awesome.

Only a sheet of ice protects you from falling 1000 feet down this Abyss
Photographer Aaron Huey, who is on assignment for National Geographic, recently shared a picture of a frighteningly deep hole on the Lower Ruth Glacier. The only thing stopping people from plummeting down the 1000 feet drop into the ground is a sheet of ice. One crack, though.

Hananuma Masakichi

When this Japanese artist learned he was dying from tuberculosis, he decided he wanted to leave a parting gift to the woman he loved. He decided to make her a life-like statue of himself that ended up looking so real it was hard to tell the real Hananuma from the statue when they stood next to each other.

He made each body part separately using dark wood which was painted and lacquered to match his skin tone. He made a tiny individual hole for every pore in his body, then plucked out his own hair (everywhere) and inserted into the exact position in the statue. He removed his own teeth, finger and toe nails which he also placed on the statue. For a final touch he gave the statue his glasses and clothes.

He lived another 10 years and ironically died of poverty (despite his talent) in 1895. You can go see this statue at London Auditorium.

Christopher McCandless

An American hiker who decided he wanted to live a simple life, and so he gave up the life he had and ventured off into the Alaskan wilderness(without even as much as a compass). Four months later his dead body was found, weighing only 67 lbs.

The cause of death was starvation, but after recent studies have speculated that, poisoning from Hedysarum alpinum seeds may have been a factor in his death.

Into the Wild is based off his story.
