WELCOME TO THE ODDITORIUM


The ODDITORIUM is a group for atheists who are interested in the bizarre and unusual, such as circus freaks or genetic anomalies in nature, bizarre beliefs, extreme behavior, unique talents, odd customs, unusual events, unbelievable news, strange happenings, and anything else that is oddly curious, out of place, or proves the old adage that fact is stranger than fiction.

What not to post:
I prefer that we skip topics such as conspiracy theories, UFO’s, crystal gazing, and subjects along those lines, unless they deal with real-world events, such as a group of UFO worshipers who commit mass suicide, or conspiracy theorists who, because of their belief, behave in a strange manner.

Neat stuff!  I remember The Burns Archive from a forum called VIG from years ago.  They posted all kinds of weird stuff there.  They used to post a lot of old, black & white postmortem photographs.  The forum is gone, but there is a pay site with a small sample gallery to check out.  Here is the link.

Cancer in the 1800s: 23 rare photos (GRAPHIC)

America's war on cancer? With 600,000 Americans dying of the disease each year, we're still a long way from declaring victory. But doctors have come a very long way in their abilities to detect and treat cancer - as these 19th Century photos make abundantly clear. They appear courtesy of New York ophthalmologist Dr. Stanley B. Burns, whose collection of early medical photography is one of the world's largest.

Until the mid-1800s, there was no anesthesia. Patients endured horrific pain, and surgeons' reputations depended upon the speed with which they could perform operations. The best could amputate an arm in one minute, a leg in three. For the photograph shown here, taken in the winter of 1846, doctors gathered at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston to demonstrate the first surgical procedure involving the anesthetic sulfuric ether.

Swedish insect shoots larvae into victims' eyes


A bumble bee-resembling fly hovering in front of your face could be an elk bot fly preparing to shot larvae into your eyes.

“It was uncomfortable and hurt a bit,” said Malin Hallgren who had 30 eggs ejected into her eye by the insect.

Bot fly larvae is a parasite that mainly feeds on the mucus of elks and deer.

Up until recently the insect was only found in elks in the north of Sweden but it has now been detected as far south as Jönköping, in the county of Småland, south of Stockholm.

A full grown insect measures around two centimeeters and looks a bit like a hairy fly or a bumble bee. After mating the female looks for an appropriate host for her offspring.
