Day 7: Through thick and thin! I’ve been with the Sims since the start and it’s evolved so much over the years! I can’t wait for the fourth! I started playing at around 4 or 5 years old when my mom was getting ready for work and I thought I killed Cassandra Goth! (She peed herself waiting for the bus 😂) I found this pic on Yahoo. #TheSims #100daysofhappy
Prisoners bodies being removed in wagons by German civilians for decent burial May 12, 1945 at Gusen Concentration Camp, Muhlhausen, near Linz, Austria.
Prisoners were worked in nearby stone quarries until they were too weak to carry on, then killed.

Drugs Under The Microscope
The world’s largest tumor was extracted.
Jianbin Yang, 30, was born with a dark birth mark on the right side of the back. At age 9 the mass began to grow at the above normal rate. And at age 12, when the mass was already the size of a fist, Jianbin had surgery to remove it. But the tumor quickly began to grow again.
Since then the tumor continued to grow over the past 18 years. When Jianbin arrived at a hospital in Beijing tissue mass reached a weight of 110 kilos, more than two thirds of its total weight.
The chief surgeon of the hospital, Minliang Chen, Jianbin said he suffers from a condition called neurofibromatosis. "We have seen neurofibromatosis patients before, but this is the largest nerve tumor I’ve ever seen," he said.
Before his operation, Yang said the giant tumor greatly affected his life. “All I could do was lie down and hardly sitting in bed all day.”
Removal surgery involved nine doctors and took 16 hours, during which Jianbin received more than 5000 milliliters of blood, more than the total amount that the body of an adult holding. The patient is currently recovering well and is expected to be discharged later this month.
Franz Ziereis was the commandant of the Mauthausen-Gusen concentration camp from 1939 until the camp was captured by the Allied powers in 1945, and was found by the US army on 23/05/1945 in a cabin in Pyhrn area in Austria and was shot during an attempt to arrest him.
He was taken to a military hospital and interrogated in the presence of former inmates. Two days after he was capture, he died of his wounds. This picture shows what liberated inmates did to his body after death.
Instant death, right? Wrong. This phenomenon actually occurs more frequently than you’d expect after cases of trauma, with many people surviving. In fact after a car accident, a woman spent 1 year diagnosed with whiplash before someone finally did an X-ray and realised what the crap was going on. It went on for so long that the bones in her spine began to deteriorate and her neck collapsed to the point of her chin resting onto her clavicle - this then lead to sores and infection. This however is a rather unfortunate scenario; in most instances it’s caught right after the accident and reattached immediately, with both kids and adults having survived it. But still, eeeesh!
So how does it happen?
This nasty scenario occurs when the atlanto-occipital joint is dislocated (this a synovial joint which attaches the skull to the spine - you can see a clear detachment of these in the image). Most documented cases of it occurred during road traffic accidents, either as a driver or pedestrian. There have also been some reported cases during childbirth. All of these survivors have of course been very lucky to not have suffered any accompanying spinal cord/nerve damage because that it a pretty sure ticket outta here.
Another example of internal decapitation worth mentioning is hanging. I’d hope to not survive in that instance because you end up asphyxiating instead. Nasty!
As a kid in primary school a few of us got into this weird habit of sucking on the ends of our hair. Our parents warned us that our insides would get riddled with disgusting hairballs. Naturally, growing up I thought it was about as true as a tree growing in my stomach after eating apple seeds but it turns out it’s a very real condition.
It’s as simple as it seems, occurring as a consequence of eating hair - a phenomenon called trichophagia. It is often coupled with trichotillomania; the compulsive urge to pull out one’s own hair.
The mass it creates is termed a trichobezoar and must be removed surgically. Accumulation of hair in the GI tract will eventually create an obstruction, a medical emergency often characterised by abdominal pain, swollen abdomen, abdominal distension, vomiting, faecal vomiting, hernia and constipation.
Federal and state police rescued about 500 children under age who were enslaved, forced to beg and sexually abused in a hostel in the city of Zamora, in the western state of Michoacan, said a senior justice official Mexico. The Attorney General of the Republic, Jesus Murillo, said at a press conference that the rescue was achieved during registration Hostel La Gran Familia, after several complaints. Police also said 138 people were rescued.
Parents reported that hundreds of children were forced to borrow money, fed rotten food, forced to sleep on the floor and were victims of sexual abuse, also they lived among rats and cockroaches.
Police arrested the owner of the group home, Rosa del Carmen Verduzco, and eight employees for questioning, Murillo said.
