Woman Undergoes 30 Surgeries To Look Like A Porn Star For Her Boyfriend

Her boyfriend criticized her and compared her to other girls.

By

When you love someone, you would sometimes go overboard just to please him or her. This way, you can show your love and affection. However, a 22-year-old woman loved her boyfriend so much; she underwent 30 plastic surgery procedures just to look like a porn star.

Berry Ng, a YouTube star from Hong Kong, underwent several procedures over the last five years, just to impress her (now ex-) boyfriend. She’s now regretting her decision.

Berry said that she started resorting to plastic surgery when her ex-partner compared her to supermodels, particularly porn stars.

As a result, she spent more than $3,000 to have her eyes, cheeks, forehead, nose, breasts, and chin fixed.

Her surgeries started when she was just 17 years old. She found a beauty center that offers student packages.

She got addicted and couldn’t stop undergoing beauty procedures.

In the hopes to impress her boyfriend, who always complained about her overall appearance, she underwent all the cosmetic procedures, which were completed when she was just 21 years old.

Sadly, despite all her efforts to change her appearance, they were still unable to impress her then-boyfriend.

He still criticized her appearance and compared her to other girls. This pushed her to go under the knife more just to gain his approval.


Berry said:

“At that moment, if he had stopped me and told me that I was beautiful enough, I would have stopped, but he didn’t.”

Her ex-boyfriend even insisted that her breasts were too small.

Berry underwent a breast augmentation surgery. The guy, however, said that he did not ask her to do the operation.

Berry got fed up and broke up with her boyfriend.

Now, she has recovered from her addiction to plastic surgery.

On her YouTube site, she regularly posts videos warning other girls against going overboard with plastic surgery and the ill effects of being addicted to cosmetic enhancements.

Berry learned one thing from her experience, that is to love yourself no matter what others say.

Guy Learns To Break A Glass Using Only His Voice

Can the high C of a trained soprano really quiver glass into dissolution?

You’ve probably seen something like this before in movies and TV shows. A particular scene where a character sings up to the point where they hit a note so high and intense that it breaks all the glass in the vicinity, even the windows.

Another particular thing that you’ve probably seen many times, a woman in an orchestra releasing an earthshaking high note that shatters Champagne flutes. Monocles crack and the chandelier explodes as the power of her voice wreaks havoc on the concert hall. This scene is too common in countless cartoons and comedies, but is this parody based on reality?

Can an opera singer really shatter glass?

To most people, this may just seem like a cartoonish exaggeration. But, believe it or not, with enough practice to attain the right pitch and volume, this is actually possible.

Physics suggests that a voice should be able to break glass. And that’s what exactly what Scottish YouTuber Mike Boyd wants to accomplish in the latest video of his Learn Quick series. Mike challenged himself to learn how to break glass using only his voice.


It took him 4 hours, 29 minutes of practice over the course of 14 days before he gained the ability to shatter a crystal wine glass with the power of his voice.

So how is this scientifically possible?

Well to begin with, sound is also a form of energy, just like electricity. It travels through various substances in waves. When a sound wave comes in contact with a certain object, it excites the particles present in that object, causing its particles to vibrate against themselves.

Glass wine goblets are especially resonant because of their hollow tubular shape, which is why they make a pleasant ringing sound when clinked. An empty glass is also easier to shatter than a glass filled with wine or water. Furthermore, minor defects in the structure of the glass can also help to shatter it more easily, as these defects provide ideal weak spots.

So if a person sings the same tone as that ringing sound when glass clinked — a high C according to legend but in reality the matching pitch could be any note — the sound of your voice will vibrate the air molecules around the glass at its resonant frequency, causing the glass to start vibrating as well. And if you sings loudly enough, the glass will vibrate itself to smithereens.

If you’ve ever doubted your ability to accomplish new things, Mike Boyd’s YouTube channel is the inspiration you’ve been seeking.

Two Girls Work Out At The Gym “Wearing” Only Body Paint

That’s some awesome painting work!

Two brave girls went to a gym wearing almost nothing but body paint in an attempt to see whether other gym-goers would even notice.

Fitness fans Sarah Reilly and Maria Luciotti partnered with renowned body painter Jen Seidel for the social experiment at a gym in Baltimore, Maryland where they worked out with only body paint as their clothes.

That’s some awesome painting work!

The amazingly done body paint made Sarah and Maria appears wearing innocent leggings and workout bras. It’s so realistic that some unsuspecting people didn’t even noticed the difference.

Jen Seidel and her painting partner designed a purple, grey and pink ensemble on Maria, complete with faux capri pants. Sarah, meanwhile, seemed to be sporting a grey and hot pink outfit with a geometrical pattern.

Sarah and Maria explored several areas of the gym and even tried out a few moves on steppers before Jen finally asked the employee to take a closer look at the duo’s outfits.

It was only then that the employee realized that Sarah and Maria were wearing body paint in lieu of clothing. She promptly reassured the group that it was alright, and that staff members wouldn’t prohibit something they couldn’t even notice.
