YOU WILL NEVER BE A CENTAUR!: Woman Injects Herself With Horse Blood For 'Art'
Seen here daydreaming about going out like Catherine the Great (jk jk, she didn't really die that way), French "artist" Marion Laval-Jeantet has been injecting herself with horse blood as part of a performance/WTF art piece entitled 'May The Horse Live In Me'. Why? I don't know, but rest assured not a good reason.

She could not inject the plasma initially but had to build up a tolerance by injecting horse immunoglobulins and glycoproteins over several months. In February of this year, she was ready for plasma that contained the entire range of foreign immunoglobulins. What happened was interesting in that her body did not reject them, but entered her blood stream and bonded with her own proteins. The results are stunning.

"the artist, during and in the weeks after the performance, experienced not only alterations in her physiological rhythm but also of her consciousness. "I had the feeling of being extra-human," explained the artist. "I was not in my usual body. I was hyper-powerful, hyper-sensitive, hyper-nervous and very diffident. The emotionalism of an herbivore. I could not sleep. I probably felt a bit like a horse.'"

WHAT. THE. F****. "Probably felt a bit like a horse"?? Yeah well I feel a bit like a horse whenever I bite an apple as big as I can and I don't have to inject myself with greengoblins or whatever. Do I, Mr. Ed? "Wiiiiiiilllllllllllbur." Dammit you know that's not my name.

Hit the jump for a couple pictures and a video of the 'if art wasn't dead, you forreal killed it'.

Nice Moon Boots, Bro: The First Dog Fitted With Prosthetic Paws On All Four Feet
Seen here after successfully fetching a 20oz soda (God, get him a toy!), Naki'o shows off his moon-boot prosthetic paws. Naki'o is the first dog to have all four paws replaced with prosthetics, and refuses to let the mailman go easy on him. The sob story, which you might want to skip if you're an easy crier:

Naki'o was abandoned as a puppy when his owners left their foreclosed home. During the Nebraskan winter, he stepped into an icy puddle in the home's basement and got all four of his paws trapped in the freezing water. With severe frostbite, Naki'0 and the rest of his litter were transported to an animal rescue center. Veterinary technician Christie Tomlinson adopted Naki'o, and organized a fundraiser to pay for his two back legs to be fitted with the prosthetics. He came through the procedure so well that Orthopets decided to donate the remaining two prosthetic legs. The prosthetics are designed to replicate the muscle and bone structure of the dog's natural limbs.

BOOM -- happy ending. Now I don't want to go off the deep end about WTF is wrong with people who don't treat animals (and their allegedly loved pets) with any compassion, so I'll just say this: I will find you, and I will kill you. Also, when they start fitting dogs with rocket boots we've gone too far.

Hit the jump for a short video of Rompy McHopper in action.
