Luckily for me, I don’t need glasses… yet. But if that day does come, I know I won’t opt for contacts because it just looks incredibly painful. Everyone I know who has them says it isn’t a big deal after a while, but every time I see them poking around their eyes it makes me squeamish.
So I couldn’t help but scream when I saw this video of a girl who decided it would be a good idea to insert a doll’s eye into her own eye socket. Regardless of the fact that you wouldn’t be able to actually see out of it, it looks incredibly painful.
Check out the disturbing video here:
She’s clearly in a lot of pain, as the doll’s eye appears to be slightly larger than her eyelid can handle. But after a bit of poking and prodding, the toy eye comes out.
The video has since gone viral, notching up nearly 60,000 shares, 38,000 likes and 44,000 comments. While many people have commented with laughing emojis, there are some who are outraged.
Facebooker Marijane says: “Omg, why would you let your child do that in the first place?”
Mauro, another poster, left a comment which concludes: “Goodbye vision.”
It’s a pretty obvious warning to steer clear away from putting foreign objects, which won’t even remotely help your vision, into your eye.
Oak galls, the nests in which wasps reside, are being ground into a paste for ‘vaginal rejuvenation’. The small balls are being sold among online retailers, including Etsy.
However, Dr Jen Gunter spoke of the damaging side effects of this activity, explaining: “This is dangerous practice with real potential to harm.”
Welcome to 2017, where literally any trend can kick off.
