Instagram isn’t just for hot fitness models and the Kardashians. Nope. It’s also home to weird pages about popping pimples and taxidermy gone wrong. Yup. And you’re all a bunch of sick, twisted freaks, because some of these pages have thousands of followers. We’re ashamed.
But, more importantly, we’re intrigued. Yes, @drpimplepopper is a disgusting Instagram page, but there is something oddly enticing about it, which explains why we spent three hours scrolling through it. And these four other Instagram pages are no different. They’re all vile. They’re all interesting. We need to see a therapist STAT.
It’s a self-explanatory handle. Dermatologist Sandra Lee pops mass amounts of pimples for your viewing pleasure. And these aren’t your ordinary blackheads; we’re talking cysts oozing with puss and cold sores that resemble Grand Canyon rocks. Click through only if you’re cool never eating vanilla pudding again.
A notorious handle, @cookingforbae displays some of the most vile culinary creations known to man. From cakes that look like they’re growing fungi to turkeys with “baby diaper” stuffing (see above), this handle is not for the foodies of the world. However, if you have a strong stomach, you’ll be looking at this bad boy for hours on end. Yummy.
Well-done taxidermy is creepy. So, imagine taxidermy that is intentionally screwed up to look terrifying. Sounds ridiculous, right? Nope, because @craptaxidermy exists. Chock-filled with cats with bulging eyes, deers in suits and haphazard leopard jaws, this is the weirdest page in our bunch. If you love animals, maybe you should steer clear of this one. But if you’re brave, open it up: It’s crazier than any acid trip you’ll ever take. ;

What's shown here is Vasa Previa, which was discovered accidentally during a cesarean section. It's a rare condition in which blood vessels within the placenta or the umbilical cord are trapped between the fetus and the opening to the birth canal (internal orifice), this situation carries a high risk the fetus may die from hemorrhage due to a blood vessel tearing at the time the fetal membranes rupture or during labor and delivery. Another danger is lack of oxygen to the fetus. Unfortunately, due to its rarity, no one really knows for sure what causes vasa previa. It occurs with a low-lying placenta (due to scarring of the uterus by a previous miscarriage), an unusually formed placenta (e.g. bilobed placenta), an in-vitro fertilization pregnancy, and multiple pregnancies (twins, triplets, etc). C-section in indicated when a diagnosis of vasa previa is established. The C-section is typically made prior to rupture of the membranes (i.e. before labor starts) and can save the baby's life. It should be done early enough to avoid an emergency, but late enough to avoid problems associated with prematurity. Photo by @fadishawabkeh
