A carpet of red blood cells clearly showing their typical biconcave disc shape. This highly flexible shape provides a large surface area for absorption and release of oxygen and carbon dioxide, and allows the cells to move easily through the finest of capillaries.

So I was up until 2:00 AM reading about creepy, horrifying true stories that would keep anyone awake. I’ve compiled up the top ten and decided to share them with you because I have no soul. This list is not ranked in any way.
1.) The Dyatlov Pass Incidient
Nine ski hikers mysteriously die in…
Masks worn by doctors during the Plague. The protective suit of the plague doctor consisted of a heavy fabric overcoat that was waxed, a mask with glass eye openings and a cone nose shaped like a beak to hold scented substances and straw.
Island of Molokini
Cool but false, look it up on Google maps. Only the crescent exists but does not look as perfect.
EXCLUSIVE: St. Louis Police Officer Blows the Whistle on Rampant Corruption Within the Department
“I wouldn’t have came down here (to Ferguson) and stood on those front lines, I would have taken my uniform off and have resigned. I didn’t have to come down here, but I would not have come down here and oppressed these people.”

#5. Myth: Healthy Teeth Should be Gleaming White
You might think white teeth are attractive, but as far as being natural, they’re the dental equivalent of fake breasts. That’s right, the natural color of human teeth is yellow. Sure, staining them with coffee or cigarettes makes them darker, as does not brushing often enough, or doing meth. But the pinnacle of oral health doesn’t make your mouth look like George Clooney’s, either. In fact, your desperate, futile attempts to scrub your teeth white can actually damage them. Stiff toothbrushes are abrasive and weaken teeth by stripping off the outer layers. On top of that, “whitening” toothpaste brands are mostly bullshit. If you cough up the dough to get your teeth professionally whitened, they’ll bleach the enamel, which also damages them.
