X-ray vision girl amazes scientists

    Scientists say Russia's x-ray vision girl, who can see inside the human body, can also spot internal injuries just by looking at a photograph.
    The ability was discovered while she was in Japan undergoing a new battery of tests and correctly used her x-ray vision to see inside animals and people.
    The experts then asked her if her talents would work on photographs, and found that she was able to use her x-ray ability as if the subject was standing in front of her.
    Even if the picture was a small passport photo, the ability still worked, identifying a man with terminal liver cancer and another with arthritis.
    Reports about 17-year-old Natalia Demkina's x-ray vision had been treated with disbelief by scientists around the world.
    So far, tests in her homeland as well as in the UK and America, and now Japan, have been unable to explain her abilities.
    The latest string of experiments was carried out by Professor Yoshio Machi at Tokyo University, who specialises in studying apparent superpowers in human beings.
    Professor Machi said: "We did a whole range of tests, and the strangest thing was that we found she could also use her abilities on photographs, even on tiny passport photos.
    "She was able to look at them and apparently see what the problem was. Her ability is not x-ray vision, but she definitely has some king of talent that we can't explain yet."

    For goodness sake, stop analyzing the girl, and lets have her start using an apparantly innate ability for the sake of the medical community. With her skills, she could be the key to unlocking several medical secrets, maybe even leading to a cure for cancer, MS, AIDS, Diabetes or any other number of medical quandries.

    I'm curious about something. Seriously. How come no one ever questions Nightstalker's "news"? I mean, did I miss something before? am I missing something now? He posts these incredible stories and no one asks him for a link, a site, a source, a picture...anything...

    Honestly, I'm ashamed of you especially, Spiderman...

    Seriously, what have I missed?

    That's a good point. I was able to google the girl's name and a lot of stuff came up (mostly in blogs though, unfortunately). I'm interested to know what source Nightstalkers is using, though.

    I don't question his news simply because due to his history of posting these types of things, their "fantastic" nature more falls under the nature of the Internet equivalent of The Star or National Inquirer. Hence, I'm already taking his news with a grain of salt and my replies are usually initially flippant intentionally.

    I mean, if this girl was for real, it WOULD be ideal to find out how she accomplishes it and whether it's in a gene and can be replicated (barring the whole gene manipulation ethics discussion :) ) But if not, I'm not losing sleep over it.

    So probably what you've missed DUke, is the whole background of his posting this type of "news" :) But if you HAVE been here from nearly the beginning and was just following along silently before, then my first paragraph of explanation should cover it :)

    The Star? I'm not familiar with that one...

    I'll double-check the next time I'm at the grocery section of the name :) And speaking of which, of course it's the Enquirer, not the Inquirer...
  10. Nightstalkers Creature — Nightstalker

    Well... Do you guys want me to start posting the more "questionable" news?
  11. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Eh, I'm fine with either way. But I can't speak for everyone...
  12. Nightstalkers Creature — Nightstalker

    Well... I have news here from the circuit about naked stuffs and all that... a few piccies to go along with things... Yeah.

    No nekkid piccies please...;)

    Hey, I could post everything I get from my "Funny News" section of Iwon.com that I read daily, but I figure someone could just go to the site for that... :)
