Warning: Not For The Weak Stomached
You have been warned. The following images are very cringe worthy. Some, you won’t even be able to look at for more than 2 seconds. But, at least you will be able to say that you have seen the the most cringe worthy images of all time. If that’s on your bucket list, you can now cross that baby right off.

These images prove that no number of scientists, doctors, explorers, etc, will be able to discover ALL there is to see in this mysterious planet we all live in.

Doctors have successfully reattached a man’s severed hand after it was attached to his ankle for a month. On November 10, Xiao Wei’s right hand was severed due to an accident at work. Doctors here were hopeful they could re-attach the hand, but not right away. So, in order to stop the severed hand from dying, they attached it to his ankle. Nearly a month after his hand was severed, Xiao had recovered enough to undergo re-attachment surgery. While he will need to undergo several other operations, doctors are confident he will regain full use of his hand again.

It turns out that putting a certain type of plankton under stress results in one of the most stress-relieving sights on the planet, their resultant blue glow creating astral patterns on sea shores. The surreal appearance of the Maldives beach was actually down to a massive tide of bioluminescent phytoplankton called Lingulodinium polyedrum however. The tiny organisms emit light when stressed, be it by the lapping of waves, the carving action of a surf board or other, creating what looks like a network of stars.
A fisherman from New Zealand was left baffled when he caught this see-through shrimp-like creature swimming near the surface of the ocean. Deborah Cracknell, research lead from the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth,believes the creature is a Salpa maggiore(Salpa maxima). The salp is barrel-shaped and moves by contracting, pumping water through its gelatinous body. It strains the water through its internal feeding filters, feeding on phytoplankton from the upper sunlit layer of the ocean. They have an interesting life-cycle with alternate generations existing as solitary individuals or groups forming long chains.
