Would you have a Live Snail Facial?

Plucky Telegraph journalist, Danielle Demetriou, was the first person in Tokyo to have a live snail facial.

Danielle had four, specially imported from Switzerland, “organic” snails (are there non-organic ones?) placed on her face.

The slime oozed by these terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusks is said to be the “elixir for youthful and beautiful skin.” Snail mucus contains proteins, anti-oxidants, and hyaluronic acid, which removes dead skin and helps retain moisture. Over the past two years, sales of snail face creams, snail serum and masks have become very popular in Japan and South Korea. According to Yoko Minami, the sales manager of Clinical Salon:

“Snail slime can help the recovery of skin cells on the face, so we expect the snail facial to help heal damaged skin.”

It may all sound like a plot device from a Guy N. Smith or Shaun Hutson novel, but this is not the first time snails have been used for medicinal purposes. In 400BC, crushed snails were commonly used to treat wounds and skin inflammation.

Today, the Celebrity Escargot Course costs around $300 (Y24,150) and lasts for around 60-minutes. The face is washed, before the beautifying mollusks are placed on the client’s face, and allowed to move about at will. According to Ms. Demetriou:

The snails feel slow, heavy and cool and slightly ticklish. The assistant attentively lifts the snails with a little tug whenever they go anywhere too near the mouth, nostrils or eyes. Many people would probably choose to undergo the snail facial with their eyes closed. There is little in life more unsettling than spying the rearing tentacles of an approaching snail on your cheek out of the corner of your eye. However afterwards, the face definitely feels cooler and plumper.

Now, you know what to do with those garden pests

Julie Tremmel, a local TV reporter in Cranston, R.I., is all kinds of awesome and apparently she goes on air high on bath salts.

I can’t wait for her next report on “What to do during a Sharknado attack.” It should be epic.

HOT dogs: Veterinarian sits in a hot parked car for 30 minutes to show how it affects your pets

Veterinarian Dr. Ernie Ward ain’t messin’ around when he demonstrates just how HOT it can get in parked car in over 30 minutes even with the windows slightly rolled down. Guess what? It gets deadly hot!

This demonstration isn’t just for folks with pets, either. It also applies to the assholes who leave their kids in cars.

This reminds of me of the time I saw two miniature schnauzers left to bake in a BMW parked in an IKEA parking lot. It must have been at least 95 degrees that day. The dogs were pawing at the windows and barking furiously. People were just standing around the car, looking confused, but not doing a damned thing. I alerted the IKEA staff to the situation immediately and they paged the owner of the car, but no one showed up to rescue the pups. The police were then called.

Little dog totally HATES recreating the famous chocolate scene from ‘I Love Lucy’

Meet Kiwi. A pug who looks befuddled and humiliated beyond belief that her human would subject her to recreating the chocolate scene from I Love Lucy.

Kiwi totally has the classic canine “Why the fuck am I here?” expression going on.

PS: Don’t try this at home! Chocolate (like grapes, cannabis and onions) is toxic for dogs.

The 1970s, when cocaine accessories were made from the tusks of endangered species

Opulence at its most disgustingly finest seen here in a 1970s mail-order ad for hand-carved ivory coke accessories. Apparently this ad was featured in High Times and Playboy.

Each of our exotic spoons, straws, and vials is delicately carved by skilled artisans from the finest center cuts of imported African ivory…the ideal coke surface. Ideal, because moisture does not condense on it, no particles will stick to its surface. The unique quality, coupled with the exquisite beauty of each hand carved design, makes each piece worth its weight in snow.

Kill an elephant, do some blow. Yuck.

San Diego Airport has a bathroom for dogs

San Diego Airport Dog Bathroom
 
The absolutely incredible image of a dog bathroom sporting a fire hydrant, above, was taken at the San Diego International Airport.

As of 2009, the Department of Transportation has apparently required all airports to make sure that there are pet relief areas available for any passengers traveling with service animals. The website Petfriendlytravel provides a handy guide to pet bathrooms across the US, and confirms that there is indeed a fire hydrant in the San Diego location:

San Diego International has three pet and service animal relief areas. One is located outside between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. At the Commuter Terminal, go to the west end; the area is located outside the terminal entrance. There is also a post-security animal relief area in Terminal 2 West, complete with fake grass, hand-washing station and a fire hydrant.

Redditor skippuy snapped a photo of his friend’s pig with what appears to be Yoda growing out of its forehead.

But what does this mean?!
