“A picture,” as the old adage goes, “paints a thousand words.” Sometimes though, those words are really, really sad.
The pictures compiled below send exactly that message – not everything captured by cameras are beautiful and eye-pleasing. Beyond making you feel bad, these photos evoke feelings of urgency. After all, it shows us just how much we, human beings, have badly damaged our own world. It’s absolutely alarming to behold and yet it’s necessary to somehow awaken our senses. If we don’t move and do something about it, it’s a safe bet that things can only go downhill from here.
Hopefully we all do our part in helping nature heal before it’s too late. Scroll down and check out the following images to see what we mean:

“Half-Human Half-Alien” With Massive Gun Collection, Found Dead in a Parked Vehicle
In a crime story that sounds more like from the vaults of X-Files than C.S.I., a man missing for several days was found dead with her fiancée insisting that he is actually a part-human, part-alien secret agent with a mission to save the world.
Last July 17, the decomposing corpse of Jeffrey Alan Lash, 60 years old, was found in a vehicle parked in Pacific Palisades.
His fiancée Catherine Nebron asked the help of Dawn VadBunker, her employee, so they can dispose the body. The two said they did not inform the police about the death of Lash because they knew the CIA would come to get his body. They were with him when he experienced breathing difficulties and died last July 4....
Millions of Dangerous, Fake Condoms From China Exported to Various Countries
Expired condoms are recycled, applied with cheap oil and re-packaged as new. Horrific!

Fake condoms were made in a makeshift workshop in Shanghai.

A hilarious yet brutally honest take on pregnancy.
Prior to being pregnant, I seriously thought pregnancy was a bed of roses. I probably need to blame the media for depicting pregnant moms as calm, peace-loving, and close-to-perfect individuals who are having the time of their lives.
But after being pregnant twice, I have finally uncovered the truth about this phase of motherhood that no one wants to talk about. While it certainly prepares mothers for the best moment of their lives, pregnancy can also bring out the worst in you. Unpredictable hormonal changes, horrific stretch marks, unbearable body pain, and erratic mood swings are some of the not-so-fun things that come with having a bun in the oven.
A Facebook page called Mommie Poppins, owned by Meghna Shah, perfectly described the real struggles of pregnancy and being a new mom through a series of cute illustrations. Shah collaborated with the artists behind Handmade by Ridhika to come up with the hilarious but brutally honest memes....
