Meet Jewel Shuping;The lady with the desire to be blind.


Jewel Shuping, a 30-year-old from North Carolina USA has dreamt of being blind since she was a child. She has been able to fufill this great desire through the help of an (unknown) psychologist who agreed to have drain cleaner poured into her eyes in order to fully blind her.
After putting in numbing eyedrops,the psychologist added a couple of drops of drain cleaner in her eyes.

Jewel’s believes that she was supposed to have been born blind. Her Fiance is also blind,although he is blind due to Natural causes.

Though she did not immediately go blind after the help of the Psychologist, her vision did eventually deteriorate till she completely lost her vision.

At first she told her family that her blindness has been the result of an accident, family members found out the truth in the long run which led to her mother and her sister to cutting contact with her.
Jewel has been diagnosed by experts with a condition called Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID).

Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID) is a disorder when the person believes that they are meant to be disabled.

According to Daily mail,she reported said;

“My mother would find me walking in the halls at night, when I was three or four years old,” she said. “By the time I was six I remember that thinking about being blind made me feel comfortable.”

She further stated that as a child, she would spend hours staring at the sun after her mother informed her that doing so would damage her eyes. Her fascination with the disability continued until she reached adulthood, with her getting a cane when she turned 18 and becoming fully fluent in Braille by the time she was 20, reports The Mirror.

This is one seriously determined person I must say.

My only question is this ,why would any one do this? Or want this?

4. Nelson Mandela was an activist against Apartheid, and he was the leader of the armed wing of the African National Congress.

>>> (South Africans can be racially classified into one of three categories: white, black , or colored (of mixed decent). Apartheid was territorial separation of whites from blacks and police repression on blacks and non-whites in South Africa (Apartheid is similar to Racism).

Beware of Internet SCAMMERS!!!!!!


I got an email that said “Did you receive my mail” as the subject and there was nothing in the message body.I replied that i didn’t and this what was sent back to me.

from:     Mr Ahmed Saeed Aban noreply@saeed.com
reply-to:     saeeahmed.aban@yahoo.com

subject:     Please I Need Your Help

Dear Friend,My name is Saeed Ahmed Aban. I have a touching story of hope and self realization to tell you. I am an  oil-servicing equipment merchant, from Dubai, U.A.E, diagnosed with chronic Esophageal cancer in July 2009.

I am a very rich man, so please do not think of this letter as one of those being sent around to ask for money later on. In the past one year i have been donating my money, to charity organizations in Malaysia, and India. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, i cannot do this myself anymore. I once asked two members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money to charity organizations in Bulgaria and Pakistan, they refused and kept the money to themselves. Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contented with what I have left for them.The last bulk consignment of my money which is unknown to anyone, is the huge cash deposit of twenty million dollars $20,000,000.00 that I have with a finance security company abroad. I need you to help me collect this deposit and distribute it to charity organizations to help earthquake victims in Haiti, and people suffering elsewhere in the world. I have set aside 10% for your time and service. I do not need this money anymore as i have a short time to live.Please reply me with honesty as soon as you receive this email. God be with you.

Sincerely,
Saeed Ahmed Aban.

OBVIOUSLY I CAN SEE ITS A SCAM.

I googled Saeed Abanahmed only to find out that he does this to alot of other people,most especialy Bloggers.I received two more emails from him,and just got this new one a day ago.

OK SERIOUSLY,DID YOU REALLY THINK I WOULD FALL FOR THAT ?

My favorite part of the E-mail Was the Confidentiality Warning Added, so the email could look Authentic. SMH.

Nobody in their right mind would ask a complete  stranger for help transferring their money online. If they had the large amounts of money they claimed then they would hire a lawyer, go to a bank, and do things legally.

Please don’t fall for this  ever! A word is enough for the wise.

Tori Spelling’s Baby Bump *sigh*


Are you as surprised as i am when some pregnant women seem look so good when they are pregnant? Sometimes even looking better than when they weren’t pregnant?Tori Spelling,who announced her fourth pregnancy in March was photographed  with husband Dean McDermott, and their youngest child, seven-month-old Hattie this past weekend .She has two other children, five-year-old Liam and Stella, who turns four next month. She got pregnant again only 5 Months After Birth Of  her third child.

I dont get it!She looks amazing!i swear its unexplainable.I dont have kids yet and i am not married but seriously i wouldn’t mind getting pregnant and looking like this or even better.

hot!

She has been quoted saying her husband finds her sexy when she is pregnant.She also was quoted saying :

‘I’m never as happy as when I’m pregnant.’And Dean can’t keep his hands off me! He’s like, “You’re the sexiest pregnant woman”.’

‘I literally would have 10 babies if I could!’

(Huh? 10 babies? in this day and time?)

Check out  pictures of her from her previous Pregnancies:

This is at 5 months!

Valeria Lukyanova,a real-life Barbie Doll?


21-year-old Valeria Lukyanova, is a Ukrainian model. People say  she is the real-life Barbie.Valeria has sparked an online debate over how the Mattel toy may really be pushing youth to have a warped sense of reality about beauty and what a healthy female should look like.
Valeria claims on her blog that she’s the most famous woman on the Russian internet because of her doll-like appeal, the debate rages on about whether her image has been photoshopped or if she used plastic surgery to achieve her look, or even whether she’s a real woman at all:

Alot  of photos on her Facebook page show a wide-eyed, nearly fake-looking Lukyanova posing in a variety of scanty outfits. But with nearly 8,000 subscribers to her Facebook page, it’s unclear whether Lukyanova exists at all, or if its photo editing.
The model did not return requests for comment. If photoshop is not a factor in getting Lukyanova’s look, she likely underwent a barrage plastic surgery. Dr. Malcolm Roth, president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, said plastic surgery should never be used to transform oneself into a favorite celebrity or, in this case, a play toy.

“We believe evaluating any and all issues that may affect our patients’ well-being, including psychological factors, is part of providing total patient care,” Roth said in a statement. “Additionally, Valeria is also only 21, so certain milestones in growth and physical maturity ought to be considered before plastic surgery is performed. ASPS cautions patients to keep in mind that plastic surgery is real surgery with real risks, just as with any operation, so the decision should not be taken lightly.”

  Diane Levin, professor of education at Wheelock College in Boston, said the mystery of her existence is not the issue. The problem is that her flaunted image epitomizes and exemplifies the issue of objectification of women in today’s society.

“Barbie has always been controversial and really changed the discussion on how girls play,” said Levin, author of the book, “The Next Sexualized Childhood and How Parents Can Protect Their Kids.” ”When Barbie came around, play suddenly became about dressing up and looking right and it eventually played a role in how women wanted to look in real life.”
While Lukyanova is an extreme example of societal expectations of perfect beauty, Levin said,

“If society expects women to look like that, it is harder for almost any woman to totally resist it.

“This just feeds into our media screen culture, where being involved with real things are becoming more and more removed for children,” Levin said. “Even if she’s totally photoshopped, the fact that her body is being changed to one that no one actually can attain epitomizes what is happening in our society.”
Levin encouraged parents to have an open discussion with their children about sexualization and objectification in the media.
“Rather than just writing it off as someone or something that is ridiculous, allow your child to share your thoughts and have an open discussion about healthy self-image and expectations for themselves and others,” she said.

What do you guys think?Check out some of her other pictures.
