Japan is home to many wacky and out of this world game shows that can be downright entertaining, or downright shocking. Japanese people love game shows so much that one hospital in Western Japan called Kurashiki Central Hospital hosts a ‘surgeon tryouts’ which is like a mini-tournament or game show to screen only the very best applicants. Successful applicants then become interns in the Department of Surgery.
The tasks range from easy such as assembling a paper crane origami and assembling a bug; to the almost impossible such as making microscopic sushi rolls using a grain of rice!
The wannabe surgeons have to do all tasks using scalpels and forceps, the common tools used in surgeries too. To add even more pressure, the tasks are all limited to just a few minutes. It’s the most extreme battle of the steadiest and most precise hands as well as the best eye for details.
Watch the awesome and very nerve-wracking tryouts in this video below:
Amazing isn’t it? Kurashiki Central Hospital is one of the top hospitals in Japan and it attracts a lot of medical graduates from the top universities in the country such as University of Tokyo. The hospital administrators in Kurashiki Central Hospital said that they did the surgeon tryout so they can select not only the smartest or the one with the highest grades in medical school, but to also gauge them based on the most important thing which are the skills to perform an actual surgery. The surgeon tryouts also tests how they can persevere, work under pressure and also make the best “surgeries” in the shortest amount of time.
Do you think this is a good method? Would you trust a surgeon who successfully passed the Surgeon Tryouts? Sound off in the comments section and don’t forget to share this awesome video article to your friends!
Poor Whale Asked for Help From Humans, Then Shows How Grateful He is Afterwards
When James Moskito tried to entangle a whale from a one-mile long line they found they found in freezing waters, he did not expect it to do the most touching thing a gentle giant can do.
James and a group of volunteers were out in the water when they saw a humpback whale come up the surface. The poor whale stared at them as if it was trying to communicate something. Indeed, after a few minutes, James and his group realized that the whale was asking for help as it was bound to a long net.

What It Means When You Twitch Before Falling Asleep
Do you twitch before falling asleep? Here’s the reason why!
Sleep should take a lot of our time. For an average person who sleeps about eight hours, that's spending about one-third of his lifetime sleeping! But have you ever wondered why we twitch before falling asleep?
There are many myths as to why we twitch before falling asleep. Some people think that some spirits are tickling us, while others think that we twitch because we've been too tired for the day.
Most people twitch just a few minutes before going into a deep sleep. In fact about 60-70% of people twitch or even jerk just before they go into dreamland. They can be as simple as hand and leg movements or as intense as the feeling of falling. Sometimes the twitching or jerking can be really intense that we get awaken by these movements. So, what does it really mean when we twitch?
Right before we go into a deep sleep, we go into a hypnogogic state, that is the transition from consciousness to unconsciousness. It may sound like a simple phenomenon, but there are actually many things that are happening in our bodies right before we enter into a deep sleep. Scientists refer to this as myoclonus, and these twitches are called the hypnagogic jerks. There are two parts in our brain that struggle as we go to sleep: the reticular activating system (RAS) which handles awakeness in the transition and the ventrolateral preoptic nucleus (VLPO) which controls us when we sleep. Scientists explain that these twitches are just a symptom of misfiring nerves as the RAS and VLPO fight it out. ...
Stork Flies 8000 Miles Every Year For His One True Love
Two storks teach us a lesson on true love and it is absolutely heartwarming.
Most of us, if not all of humanity, are in search for their one great and truest love. That one person who will complete them and make them happy for the rest of their lives. That is the ultimate goal in life, after all right? To find The One and love him or her forever. Not everyone is lucky enough to find their other half so people who do, make sure that they are able to do everything they can to make things work.
The same goes for animals, too. They are also in search of their own mates, fall in love, and the rest is history as they all say. Animals, too, make sacrifices for their mates, and they also make sure that their respective partners know and feel that their love is true. This is one such story between two storks.
Lovebirds Klepetan and Malena are inseparable most of the time.
Klepetan and Malena met fifteen years ago on a rooftop in the small Croatian village of Slavonski Brod. The two fell in love and have been together ever since. This isn’t what makes their story so awesome. What makes their love story so special is the devotion they both have for each other, even when natural circumstances have to keep them apart. ...
