This Guy Literally Has Superhands, And He Puts Them To Good Use

A street-corner chef named Kann Trichan was selling chicken in Chiang Mai, the largest city in northern Thailand, when a squirrel fell into one of his bubbling-hot frying pans. It splashed the oil all over his face and arms. Naturally, he went home to nurse his wounds.

But the next day, he found that he had no burns or blisters.

Now calling himself “Superhands,” Trichan’s corner business is extremely popular, as it’s part food cart, part street performance. The man dazzles customers by frying his hens and sticking his hands deep in the scorching-hot liquid.

Usually, I’d prefer that people touch my food with their hands as little as possible, but honestly, when it comes to Superhands, I’m more impressed than disgusted. How is this possible?

The Dark Sides Of 10 Beloved Historical Figures

It’s no secret that history books don’t get everything right, but you might be surprised to see the dark sides of these 10 beloved historical figures.

From civil rights activist Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to children’s author Sir Roald Dahl, each of these figures had a dark side that they kept hidden from followers, press, and fans. As you’ll learn, their lives, motives, and beliefs weren’t always savory.

1. Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson is remembered for penning the line that “all men are created equal” in the Declaration of Independence, but that sentiment certainly didn’t extend to his hundreds of slaves.

However, Jefferson not only kept slaves at his Monticello estate. He also fathered six children with a slave woman named Sally Hemings. While Jeffferson later freed his children, he kept Sally in his possession until his death in 1826.

2. Winston Churchill

The name Winston Churchill is synonymous with leadership, strength, and power, but did you know that the former Prime Minster was also an outspoken racist?

In regard to Native Americans he said, “I am strongly in favor of using poisoned gas against uncivilized tribes…[It] would spread a lively terror.” He was also known to refer to Africans and Indians as “beasts” and “savages.”

3. Mahatma Gandhi

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.defineSlot(‘/37886402/VN_PG_DCI1_BTF’, [300, 250], ‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF_58082e0496693′).addService(googletag.pubads()) googletag.pubads().setTargeting(“NOVA_MB”, “VN_”); googletag.pubads().setTargeting(“NOVA_SC”, “VN_ORGN”); googletag.pubads().setTargeting(“NOVA_TS”, “TS_D”); googletag.pubads().setTargeting(“NOVA_AT”, “VN_ORGN_PG_D_REV_1.0_ASYNC_DEFAULT”); googletag.pubads().setTargeting(“NOVA_CC”, “VN_ORGN_D_UNK_118108_A”); googletag.pubads().setTargeting(“NOVA_PG”, “1”); googletag.enableServices(); googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF_58082e0496693′); });

Mahatma Gandhi, otherwise known as the “Father of the Nation” in India, is a worldwide symbol for peace, love, and hope. Unfortunately, he had a disturbing sexual appetite behind closed doors.

According to numerous accounts, Gandhi forced female followers and his own grandnieces to sleep with him naked. Nightly, he would perform “celibacy tests,” a thin cover for molestation.

4. John Lennon

John Lennon wrote songs about love and peace, but his son Julian says that he was a very different man at home.

Julian Lennon, the son of John and his first wife Cynthia, doesn’t hold the same admiration for his father as the rest of the world does. In 1998 he said, “I felt he was a hypocrite. Dad could talk about peace and love out loud to the rest of the world, but he could never show it to the people who supposedly meant the most to him: his wife and son.” After a bitter divorce in 1968, John rarely visited or spoke to his son.

5. Martin Luther King Jr.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is remembered as one of the greatest orators of all time, but many say he was known plagiarizer.

When King’s wife donated his papers to Stanford University in 1985, staff noticed something fishy. King’s doctoral dissertation, written for Boston University, contained large plagiarized sections from another student, Jack Boozer. Indignantly, Boston conducted their own investigation, but soon found that the Stanford claims were true.

6. Sir Roald Dahl

Sir Roald Dahl is the author of beloved children’s classics like “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and “Matilda.” However, those close to him remember him as a misogynist and Nazi sympathizer.

Dahl’s fiction is filled with whimsical flying fruit and children with special powers, but if you read deeper, you’ll also find hints of racism and misogyny. His own wife nicknamed him “Ronald the Rotten,” perhaps because of his numerous affairs.

In 1983, he defended Hitler by saying, “There is a trait in the Jewish character that does provoke animosity. I mean, there’s always a reason why anti-anything crops up anywhere; even a stinker like Hitler didn’t just pick on them for no reason.”

7. Abraham Lincoln

Since the end of the Civil War, Lincoln has been known as the president who freed the slaves, but his personal letters tell a different story.

Despite popular opinion, Lincoln’s intention going into the Civil War was not to free slaves. It was to save the Union. In 1862, he wrote to Horace Greeley, editor of the New York Tribune, saying, “If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it.”

8. Steve Jobs

Everyone knows that Steve Jobs had a bad temper, but that only scratches the surface of his dark side.

In addition to cheating his friend and business partner, Steve Wozniak, out of Apple profits, Jobs has been accused of illegally backdating stocks, investing in Chinese sweat shops, and holding long, spiteful grudges. He’ll always be remembered as the father of the iPhone, but those who knew him say he was a outright jerk.

9. Mother Teresa

On September 4, 2016, Mother Teresa was officially canonized as a Saint, causing many to call out her problematic history.

By all reports, Mother Teresa was no saint. Her worldwide fame was based on exploiting the very people she claimed to care for, and many say her medical practices were negligible at best. She’s even been accused of withholding funding for food and medicine, saying, “There is something beautiful in seeing the poor accept their lot, to suffer it like Christ’s Passion. The world gains much from their suffering.”

10. Walt Disney

I hate to burst your bubble, but Walt Disney wasn’t exactly the jovial, fun-loving guy that history’s made him out to be. In addition to creating some of our favorite movies, he was also a racist and a chauvinist.

Few people have heard of the Disney film “Song of the South.” That’s because it’s considered so offensive, it’s been removed from circulation. He was also heard referring to the dwarves in “Snow White” as an “n-word pile” and “pickaninnies,” and refused to hire female animators on the basis of their gender.

These Photos All Have One Thing In Common, And It’s So Chilling

When it comes to capitalizing on loss, 19th-century photographer William H. Mumler was an expert…for a while, anyway.

In 1861, he noticed that a second figure appeared in the background of a photograph he was developing. Although it was obviously a flaw in the process, he knew that he could cash in on that error by capturing basic portraits, superimposing additional faces in the background, and presenting them as spirits.

Fittingly enough, the phenomenon of spirit photography was born in a small, Boston-based studio.

Up to that point, Mumler had little to no known attachment to paranormal activity.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); });

And he didn’t even delve into photography until after he worked as a silver engraver for a few years.

Getty Images

As he was developing a self-portrait one day, he noticed that fateful second face in the image.

Quickly flipping the script on what was probably a rookie mistake, he claimed that the face belong to his deceased cousin. After that, “spirits” started showing up in more and more photos.

Getty Images

Conveniently enough, the receptionist at the studio moonlighted as a medium. With a little support on her part, Mumler’s technique turned into a full-fledged phenomenon in Boston.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF’); });

National acclaim soon followed. At that point in history, mysticism was on its way to being a prevailing school of thought over rationalism.

Getty Images

For that reason, spirit photography could not have come about at a more appropriate time.

Because objective truth was not held in high regard in mystic circles, people rode the waves of this bizarre phenomenon without a shred of evidence in sight.

When Mumler made his way to New York City in 1869, however, a legal wrench was thrown in the gears.

The mayor wasn’t exactly enthused about the situation, so he sent a reporter into Mumler’s shop disguised as a client.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI2_BTF’); });

After the photo was taken and Mumler added an additional face, he released it and claimed that the figure was the subject’s late father-in-law. There was just one problem with that.

His father-in-law was very much alive at the time, which meant that Mr. Mayor received a detailed report of the photographer’s fraudulent ways.

That landed the artist in court, but he was eventually acquitted for lack of evidence and testimony.

Although that dealt a crushing blow to his New York business, he was still revered in mystic communities in Boston.

But after a while, the Spiritualist movement — the same one that accelerated Mumler’s rise to fame — folded. Needless to say, that wasn’t good for business.

William Mumler died completely destitute in 1884.

While he did go on to make contributions to the photography industry — most notably with the discovery of a wood-cut printing method then known as the Mumler Process — his career didn’t really survive (much less thrive) after the court revealed his true colors.

This Artist Creates Realistic, Emotive Sculptures With Felt, Nylon, And Wire

Over the course of her illustrious career, artist Lisa Lichtenfels has perfectly illustrated what it means to work with boundless scope. After graduating from the Philadelphia College of Art, she scored every budding artist’s dream gig of working as an apprentice animator with Disney.

While working with some of the best creators in the business, Lichtenfels developed a keen interest in creating stop-motion figures, which is arguably one of the most meticulous methods of all. From there, her fascination grew into a sculptural career of epic (and life-sized) proportions.

With heavy felt, nylon, and wire, this artist brings realistic sculptures to life.

Realism collides with fantasy in her Massachusetts-based studio. She continually experiments with form and function by breathing life into impressively varied subjects. Many of her creations are life-sized models.

The process begins with the creation of a movable wire skeleton.

Yarn is then wrapped tightly around each figure, and the entire model is shaped with heavy layers of white felt.

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251602_56eb95cab94f5″, auid: “537251602” });

“I try to use materials that are similar in density and character to the corresponding parts of the human body,” she writes.

“Where muscles need to be flexible, I will use elastic fabric, but for all other areas I use batting. . . . When sewn onto the bones [batting] has much the same feeling as muscle tissue.”

Lichtenfels uses a material called fiberfill to build fatty tissues, since it behaves similarly.

To mimic the texture and behavior of skin, she uses nylon.

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251604_56eb95cab9667″, auid: “537251604” });

Features like folds and wrinkles are sewn in with clear thread.

Noses, eyelids, and lips are supported by copper scaffolding. The resulting sculptures are emotive, relatable, identifiable, and full of life.

(via Amusing Planet)

When she started exploring this technique, Lichtenfels thought that she’d return to animation after a year or so. Over two decades later, she’s still at it, and the artist believes that she has so much more to learn about the craft.

What He Made With Some Slabs Of Cypress Will Seriously Impress You

Redditor GooberMcNutly passes a cypress sawmill on his way to work every day. While that might sound pretty unexciting to you, just wait…

When he finally made time to go in during their business hours, he took three unique rounds home with him. We’re getting ahead of ourselves, though, because “rounds” when it comes to cypress trees aren’t really round at all.

Using that fact to his advantage, he decided to make the slabs of wood into unique end tables. You’ll be dying for one in your own living room when you see the finished products!

The rounds came home with him looking like this.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); });

Saw marks and dryness left much to be desired.

Using an electric sander and sandpaper, he smoothed the surfaces out.

What a difference that made!

Then it was time to remove the bark. Some came off on its own, other pieces had to be coaxed with a chisel and hammer.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF’); });

In an effort to reinforce the slabs, he wanted to attach mirrored plywood pieces on the bottoms. He traced the outlines on construction paper first.

Then, he rearranged the cutouts on plywood.

A jigsaw did the job.

He then cropped them down and angled the edges so that you wouldn’t be able to see the plywood from the top of the table.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI2_BTF’); });

GooberMcNutly used epoxy to adhere the surfaces to one another and screwed them together, too.

Wanting to seal up holes and imperfections, GooberMcNutly carefully taped off and poured epoxy in.

Finally, a number of layers of epoxy gave the tabletops a beautiful sheen.

Some carefully positioned IKEA legs were attached and these end tables were finished!

So. Pretty. Must…have.

In Honor Of International Women’s Day, Here Are Some Incredible Women To Watch

The road to gender equality has proven to be an arduous one, but it’s always been paved by incredible women doing equally incredible work. By railing against the systems that have traditionally kept women under thumb, exceptional writers, activists, scientists, and politicians have made it their mission to call these systems into question, and ultimately undermine them.

To honor these amazing monuments to solidarity and strength, the United Nations dedicates March 8 to the annual celebration of International Women’s Day. We have a long way to go, but these women prove that we’re in powerful, capable hands.

1. Roxane Gay

This professor, activist, and best-selling author has dedicated her life to deconstructing systems of oppression as related to gender, sexuality, class, and race, and she’s revered in social justice circles for her nuanced understanding of the complex intersections between them. You’ve probably heard of (and hopefully read) her book Bad Feminist, and if you want to learn more about Roxane Gay, be sure to check out her website and follow her on Twitter.

2. Reshma Saujani

As the founder and CEO of Girls Who Code, Saujani has made it her mission to flip the script on the male-dominated tech industry by empowering young women and helping them close the gender gap in STEM research and education. Saujani’s passion is fueled by the prospect of gender parity in tech-related fields.

3. Hillary Clinton

While feelings are largely mixed across the political spectrum in regard to Hillary Clinton, I’d be remiss not to include the first woman in American history to stand within arm’s reach of the Oval Office. To learn more about her campaign, pay her site a visit.

4. Bree Newsome

While the Queen of Pop has always been a proponent for social change, Lady Gaga’s most recent endeavors have brought much-needed attention to the issue of sexual assault. A survivor herself, the Born This Way Foundation co-founder has recently used her platform to cast the ugly truth about sexual abuse in glaring, fluorescent light. By working with activists from It’s On Us and End Rape on Campus, she hopes to change the damaging rhetoric surrounding sexual assault to help survivors heal.

6. Carolyn Rodz

Carolyn Rodz founded the organization Circular Board, which helps women think outside the box when it comes to creating their own businesses. Beyond helping burgeoning entrepreneurs raise necessary funds, Rodz provides them with an immersive, collaborative experience by allowing them to participate in cohorts designed with business development in mind.

7. Kathryn Finney

Getty Images

As the co-founder of digitalundivided, Kathryn Finney works to help Black and Latina women gain solid footing in Silicon Valley. Her sentiments mirror Reshma Saujani’s in many ways, but her organization takes things one intersectional step further by focusing not only on getting women into STEM fields, but helping women of color — who are even less represented in tech — gain access to the opportunities and funding they need to break down barriers in the industry.

8. Laverne Cox

Getty Images

This actress and activist stands at the helm of many issues in the trans community. As a trans woman of color, Cox is another celebrity who uses her platform to open the eyes of the mainstream media in regard to violence toward and oppression of trans folk. For decades, this group has gone unprotected, unheard, and unrepresented. Laverne Cox uplifts trans voices from around the world.

Since the horrific shooting that almost robbed the world of this incredible mind, Malala Yousafzai has used her struggle to empower girls across the globe to demand their educational rights. The Nobel Prize winner is wise beyond her years, and when it comes to fighting for women’s education, she shows no signs of stopping.

10. Gloria Feldt

Feldt co-founded Take the Lead, which is an organization centered around helping women navigate leadership roles in arenas ranging from business to politics. Feldt and her team provide women with access to the resources and educational tools they’ll need to power past the 18-percent stake women currently hold in top leadership positions on the road to gender parity.

11. Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Getty Images

She’s always been incredible, but Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s recent work to maintain women’s reproductive rights during the 2016 campaign season brings her genius and passion to the mainstream media’s attention once again. She’s someone who has made a career out of embodying what it means to be a strong woman, and she works tirelessly to ensure that all women have the opportunity to do the same.

12. Neha Gupta

At 17 years old, this amazing young woman founded Empower Orphans — an organization that she actually ideated when she was only nine. Gupta and her team work not only to provide basic means of sustenance to orphans around the world, but also to equip them with the tools they’ll need to succeed later in life. She recently won the International Children’s Peace Prize for her efforts.

Women today sit at an interesting, contentious juncture between past and present — between the problematic narratives that we’ve been fed and the new stories we strive to tell. While this is just a small sampling of inspirational women to watch in 2016, their passions are indicative of the new battles we face as we move toward full equality. Luckily for us, there’s no shortage of dazzling people leading the way.

13 Of The Weirdest — And Most Genius — Spots You Haven’t Painted Yet

If you ask me, there are few things that a little paint can’t fix. Got an old table? Slap a fresh coat on it and it looks brand-new. Boring wall? Yeah, it works there, too!

Here Are All Of The Major Cartels That Are Currently Winning The War On Drugs

Since 2006, a brutal war has been going on between Mexico’s government and the dangerous drug cartels that essentially rule the country. Since the demise of Colombian cartels, Mexican crime organizations have supplied as much as 90 percent of all cocaine that’s currently in the States. Some of these groups earn up to $49.4 billion annually.

Needless to say, it’s a dangerous business. The official death toll of Mexican people on both sides of the war by 2012 rung in at a heartbreaking 60,000, and many believe that the death toll has doubled since then. Here are some of the most dangerous cartels in Mexico.

Beltrán Leyva

Getty Images

At one point, eight of Mexico’s top 10 most wanted criminals were part of this ruthless gang, which was headed by the five Beltrán Leyva brothers. At one point, they actually infiltrated the Mexican government and Interpol in order to steal information about anti-cartel operations. The group disbanded in 2014, but two of the brothers are now in a Mexican criminal syndicate known as Los Zetas.

Knights Templar

Getty Images

Despite being known for murder, trafficking, and armed robbery, this cartel prides itself on its “code,” which details the ethical standards of the organization. Members claim that they do not kill for money, and they insist that they help the poor. When the Pope came to Mexico in 2012, members even raised a banner that read as follows: “The Knights Templar Cartel will not partake in any warlike acts. We are not killers. Welcome, Pope.”

Cartel del Golfo

Getty Images

Directly across the border from Brownsville, Texas, lies the headquarters of one of Mexico’s oldest crime syndicates — the Cartel del Golfo, or Gulf Cartel. Founder Juan Nepomuceno Guerra was known for smuggling alcohol into the U.S. during the prohibition. Today, the cartel has a vast, international trafficking network that reaches Europe, West Africa, Asia, and countries all over the Americas.

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251602_56f200dc4ab78″, auid: “537251602” });

Juárez Cartel

Getty Images

Although this gang makes its home in Chihuahua, there’s nothing small or cute about it. The DEA estimates that this cartel makes around $200 million a week, and a large portion of that money goes to bribing the authorities. Members of this group are known for mutilating bodies and displaying them in public to intimidate civilians.

Sinaloa Cartel

Getty Images

The American government considers the Sinaloa Cartel to be the the most dangerous trafficking organization in the world. Founded in the ’80s, this group now has a presence in 17 of the 31 Mexican states, and it was responsible for moving approximately 200 tons of cocaine into the United States between 2008 and 2012.

Los Zetas

Getty Images

These criminals began as the enforcers of the Gulf Cartel, but have since broken off to form their own organization. It’s no surprise that members of Los Zetas are considered some of the most violent offenders in all of Mexico. They are widely known for public beheadings and massacres. In 2011, Los Zetas took between 300 and 500 lives when leaders believed that two men betrayed the organization.

When politicians talk about the War on Drugs, just know that this level of violence is what America is up against. It’s so bad that Mexican officials don’t even try to deal with trafficking at this point, since they’re going for the hydra’s heart, so to speak.

When A Homeless Man Asked Her For Food, She Gave Him Something Even Better

When a homeless man wandered into this restaurant one day asking for food, the business owner had a better idea. Why not give him a job so he’d never be hungry again?

He had a bunch of felonies under his belt and a drug addiction to boot, but instead of turning him away, the restaurant owner said that he could enjoy a meal after washing dishes for two hours. After that, something tremendous happened.

Not only did he last the full 2 hours, but after he was done, he ran outside to split the sandwich he got from the restaurant with another homeless person.

To help him deal with his addiction issues and get back on his feet, she told the man that she’d set 10 percent of each paycheck aside to teach him how to manage his money.

It’s amazing how one seemingly small act of kindness helped someone turn his entire life around. Thousands of people live with the harsh realities of homelessness every single day, and most of them just need a second chance. If we all approached charity the way that this restaurant owner just did, we could stop homelessness in its tracks.
