Doctors began treating “hysteria” in women during the 1800s to relieve their pent up (ahem) tension. Medical professionals originally treated their clients though manual massage. Soon, they developed some strange machinery in an attempt to make it easier for everyone.
Of course, business-minded folks saw the opportunity to cash in on the craze with their own cleverly marketed contraptions. I’m not sure how any of these would help get a lady “in the mood” for anything but a robot convention, though.

It’s a good thing the sex toy industry stopped beating around the bush about their products. Some of these looked like they could actually make you go blind. How did people use…wait, nevermind.

This unsettling video shows a man reaching into a hole in a cave wall and pulling out a squirming cluster of creepy-crawlies.
Basically, a dad pulls out a clump of “daddylonglegs” acolloquial namethat tends to refer to the 6,000 species of arachnids that fall into the Opolione order.
While this sight might fill you with nightmares, thebehavior of clustering together is pretty common in these species. They likely clump together for warmth in cool, dark caves, and todefend themselves from predators.

It seems this pinball game is stuck in an impossible infinite loop!
Lilmul123 was playing at the 2014 Michigan Pinball Expo when the ball became stuck in between a bumper and kicker.
He claims it went on for a few minutes before stopping, but not before racking up a ton of points! Sadly, he didn’t hit a high score.

YouTuber Moto2h wondered what the music video for PSY‘s KPop super sensation, Gangnam Style, would be like without the music. Just the singing and sound effects. So he sat down for four hours and with an a cappella track and some sound effects completed what he set out to do.
The resulting music video is difficult to describe. It is very odd, yet there is something enthralling about the stark contrast of outrageous dancing and visuals without the usual blasting club music.

Beaches in California are turninglobster-red, literally,as droves of small crustaceans are washing up along their shores.
For about a week, numerous beaches from Orange County right down to San Diego have been frequented bythousands of red tuna crabs (Pleuroncodes planipes),many of which appear to be dead or on their last legs.
This species, which isactually from the lobster family, grows fromaround 2.5 to7.5 centimeters (1 to3 inches) in length. They can usually be found in waters off the coast of Mexicos Baja California. However, with warmer water temperatures,they tend to drift up the west coast of the U.S.
Scientists are hence pointing their finger towards El Nio as the culprit for this freak event, considering this years was such a strong one. Although it peaked some months ago, its after-effects are still being felt. One of which is the El Nioeffect, which alters ocean temperatures and currents in the eastern Pacific.
Typically such strandings of these species in large numbers are due to warm water intrusions, saidLinsey Sala, collection manager for the Pelagic Invertebrates Collection at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, in a statement.
Reuters reports that there was a similar mass stranding of this species in June 2015, whichalso coincided with an El Nio event.
Just in case youre already thinking about heading down there with some garlic, butter, and a frying pan, scientists have recommended that people dont eat them as there’s a chance they could contain toxins.

Remember the science video of the ball of red hot nickel that was dropped into water to document its outrageous after-effects? That video currently stands with over two million views.
This time, the at home chemist Cars And Water used an even larger ball of nickel that he heated until it was red hot, and then dropped it into a cup of hot water. Interestingly enough, the ball of nickel reacts different from the last experiment.
As mavrick45 adds: “Sounds like me after I eat taco bell.”
Umcarainteressante wonders what would happen if one threw “about 10 of these balls on a swimming pool!?”
