How A Man Was Able To Survive A Knife Through His Brain




A man in the Sichuan province of China recently survived being hit by a knife that fell from an eighth-floor balcony and pierced his skull, according to news reports.

This unusual story — reported last week by the U.K. online newspaper The Telegraph— may seem far-fetched, but surviving a knife through the head is possible, said Dr. Richard Temes, director of the Center for Neurocritical Care at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, New York.

Falling knives are, of course, pretty rare, but cases of people survivingsevere head injuries aren’t, Temes told Live Science. However, Temes noted that it’s important not to equate surviving a head injury with walking away from such an incident unscathed.

“Even in those situations where you have a devastating injury and survive, you do have [neurological] changes,” he told Live Science. “It might not necessarily be the disability of motor or functional skills, but it could be personality, memory — things that are more silent that you don’t physically see.”

Temes pointed to the famous historical example of the case of Phineas Gage, a 19th-century rail worker who survived an explosion that sent a large iron spike into the front of his skull and out the back. Gage was blinded in one eye by the accident, but other than that, he walked away from the explosion relatively unharmed.

Or so it seemed. A few months after the incident, Gage’s friends, family members and physicians started noticing major changes in his behavior. He had difficulty remembering faces. He started behaving oddly. It was like he had become a different person.

“This is because the part of the brain that the [spike] went through was the frontal lobe, which is important for judgment, insight, memory and overall personality,” Temes said.

Of course, not all head injuries affect the frontal lobe. Injuries that affect other parts of the brain may be harder for doctors, as well as a patient’s friends and family members, to detect.

Different parts of the brain control different activities,” Temes said. “There are parts of the brain that are important for speech, language, comprehension, memory,” and injuries to these parts of the brain can sometimes be very subtle. But that doesn’t mean they’re not serious.

For example, many professional football players in the United States experience major head trauma throughout their careers, and these athletes may seem fine after an acute injury, but the long-term effects of these injuries are not clear, Temes said. Researchers are studying such injuries, he added.

Head injuries may lead to conditions such as dementia or depression even years after the injury, he said.

In the case of the man struck by a knife in China, Temes said it’s unlikely that the patient will walk away from the incident with only a scar.


“Anybody with a penetrating brain injury, like a knife injury, is going to have some neurological changes,” Temes said. “The patient may be walking; they may be talking. But there are going to be differences regarding that patient.”

Nigerian Parents Arrested After Teen Son Dies During Religious Fast



A Nigerian couple have been arrested in the US after their 15-year-old son reportedly died during a 40-day religious fast.

Kehinde Omosebi, 49, and Titilayo Omosebi, 48, of Reedsburg, were on Tuesday charged with child neglect causing death and child neglect causing great bodily harm.

The father was said to have walked to the Reedburg police station on Sunday, to report his son had died on Friday, Chief Timothy Becker said.

Investigators who went to the Omosebi home reportedly had to force their way in, as the doors was padlocked on the inside. No food was discovered in the home. They found the “extremely emaciated and deceased” teenager, and also found a gaunt 11-year-old child, along with his mother, Titilayo, who was also undernourished, according to the report.

The father, Kehinde, told authorities that the family began fasting on July 19, and that he was a “religious minister affiliated with Cornerstone Reformation Ministries,” which is believed by police to have been made up.

The mother and 11-year-old were transported to a hospital. The mother reportedly refused medical treatment due to religious reasons, and was taken to the Sauk County Jail.

The child remains in protective custody at Children’s Hospital in Madison, while, according to Becker, the parents are eating while in jail.

This Illuminati Conspiracy Theory Of Celebrities With Black Eyes Will Shock You..



A bizarre conspiracy theory has emerged suggesting that celebrities seen sporting a black left eye are part of the Illuminati. Former US President George W. Bush, along with the Pope, Prince Philip and Prince Andrew, have all also been photographed with black eyes.

According to some conspiracy theorists, the black left eye is part of a cult or ‘Illuminati’ high-level initiation ritual during which the pledger is said to be forced to ‘eat pain’ in a quest to become more powerful.

Author and internet radio show host Sherry Shriner –  who wrote the book Interview With The Devil, in which she claimed to converse with Lucifer – has spoken of the link between these black eyes and ‘soul scalping’.

According to Shriner, government leaders, people on TV with their own shows and hundreds of popular entertainers have sold their souls to Satan.

‘You cannot be on TV now, without signing on the dotted line. The bizarre recurrence of facial bruises on Illuminati politicians and entertainers has resulted in speculation that their souls have been replaced in a satanic ritual called “soul scalping”,’ she said.

Shriner, who died earlier this year, believed all the powerful people in the world have been soul scalped.

She said that this can one done in a number of ritualistic ways, all of which result in a ‘possession’, whereby the human soul is removed and the body taken over by the demonic entity.

In conspiracy circles, this process is also known as a ‘walk-in’. Some people believe the blackened eye is a result of soul scalping.

Meanwhile, celebrities have come up with various explanations for how they got their black eyes over the years.

The Pope was said to have hit his eye when riding through the streets of Cartagena, Columbia in the ‘Pope-mobile’ last year.

Several news reports stated that he had made a joke about the injury, saying that he’d been punched.

Conspiracy theorists have pointed out that even members of the royal family have been spotted with black eyes over the years.

Some researchers suggest a link between the bearers of black eyes to the worship of the Egyptian sun god Horus, whose left eye was black and represented the moon and whose right eye was white and represented the sun.
