Sorry, I don't buy it.

These days, everyone has cell phones with functional cameras on them. I just got back from 2 years in the deep African bush, and even little kids out in the middle of nowhere had Chinese knockoffs of good phone brands. If this is the best photo they can produce, I'm going to call 'hoax'.

Hmm. Not a traditional Muppet, but I can see a sort of Jim Henson Company influence there. You could put that in the background of The Dark Crystal and it would blend in pretty well.

They finally got him... they FINALLY got him... *sniff*...

I can finally sleep well tonight. First time in 13 years. Knowing I'll be able to sleep in a world with some sense of justice in it.

Lord, I have never prayed to you before, I have not the tongue for it. Yesterday, as it was in countless days prior, I cursed you for your inaction in allowing this thing to perpetuate my living nightmare. Today I have but one thing to say, and it is "Thank You". If you are real, and command me to an afterlife at some later date, I would be happy to buy you a beer, and I shall still ask- "BTW, that Jar-Jar thing- what the fark WAS that?" but I'm at peace now, and may be capable of finally understanding your answer.

They meant 'acrania', or the absence of a formed skull.

FWIW, this doesn't exactly look like acrania to me, but instead anencephaly (the buggy 'frog' eyes are characteristic of this deformity.)

Seriously, WTF?

Size is about right for a newborn, appears to be covered with the goo newborns are covered with. Light blue ear looks like oxygen deprivation. Looks like a cleft pallot- probably other physical defects as well. Latex surgical gloves during delivery. I wouldn't be waiting up for the autopsy result as there will probably not be one forthcoming.

Sad but nothing really to see here.

2012-11-20 04:03:09 PM
M24Digital consulted a medical expert who said: "No, that is not an alien. This is a child with anencephaly, a birth defect."

"As I can see, it is clear that the photograph is of a newborn or a dead baby after an abortion. The deformation process can be explained by a rustic and illegal interruption of pregnancy," he added.


Happy Thanksgiving

powerful katrinka: try acrania not arcania.


Thanks! I Googled arcania and all I could find was video game sites.

I had a look at some fetuses and infants born with acephalia-whatsit and some of them look like baby trolls. A lot of folklore is based on medical anomalies.

I am a bad, bad person for saying so, but some of the pictures were hilarious, in a sort of H.P. Lovecraftian way. And if you think a frog is cute, some of the babies were horribly, tragically cute.

Here's a tender and touching photo of one such little monster and its proud parents:

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/facebook-sorry-for-deleting-family-ph o to-of-newborn-with-brain-defect/

Humans, gotta love 'em. There's some good in the old hairless monkeys yet.

The famous writer, Arthur Conan Doyle, better known for his Lost World and Sherlock Holmes novel, defended an Irish family for killing a deformed enfant in the belief that it was a changeling--in folklore, an elderly, retarded or simply impossible to live individual that the Good Folk swap for a human infant like cuckoos or mocking birds laying their eggs in another bird's nest.

This belief was not doubt fostered in part by such cases. The enfant would look like a troll or elf to traditional peasants, and not knowing any better, they would assume that it was a changeling.

The traditional responses are somewhat comical (such as going through the motions of brewing beer in an eggshell or casting millet seed before the fire because the Good Folk can't resist fascination with these tricks and will reveal themselves by their reaction) or the tragic response of exorcising the supernatural creature by placing the infant on a red hot shovel. In this historical case, it was the tragic response which was tried.

I've always been fascinated with folklore. I read a lot of books on the supernatural, mythology, folklore, anomalies and so forth long before I discovered the works of Charles Hoy Fort and became a long time reader of The Fortean Times magazine, which is practically Fark's sister site.

I have a strong stomach when it comes to medical anomalies as well. I don't lose any sleep over monsters, horrible diseases, deformity or mutants. Some of them are even attractive and interesting people which I would like to meet.

Have you ever seen the podcasts where Ricky Gervais (a very amusing a-hole of the practical joker sub-type) introduces Karl Pilkington to the famous British dwarf actor. In one of them Ricky Gervais has the dwarf dressed in a frog costume. He's one of the world's biggest jerks, but the frog costume is brilliant. I think it would be a great costume ball costume, or Halloween costume. If the dwarf had a prince costume on underneath and could do a quick change, it would be a shoo-in for first prize.

Pilkington is a long-time reader of The Fortean Times but he muddles everything he reads or thinks about so thoroughly it either comes out as Zen Koans or complete and utter nonsense, even if he has a valid and very clever point concealed in the rubbish he talks.

I love Karl Pilkington. He should be an honorary Farker. And Ricky and Steven are such jerks sometimes. If they weren't so busy being "rational" and "scientitians" they might learn something profoundly wise and intelligent from that little egg-headed idiot they torment.

I feel his pain sometimes but other times I have to laugh because joke's on the smart guys.

I've seen some of the most ghastly things--men with their faces half destroyed by disease, for example--but also some things that are straight out of fairy tales and mythology.

Weird, wild and wonderful. That's how I like my www.

Pretty sure its an anencephalic infant with a bit of a cleft in the mouth .
