Here's something you didn't know would disturb you: temporary flesh-colored skin "implants" that many celebrities are modeling on social media.


Kim Kardashian posted pictures of herself on social media "wearing" a choker...of sorts.


Chrissy Teigen posted an even more extreme photo, sporting a strange series of feathers growing out of her chest.

It turns out these celebrities are all wearing the "implants" to promote "A. Human, an experimental immersive theatrical experience," which is opening in New York City on September 5.


Creator Simon Huck told VOGUE these body modifications are part of his vision of the future humans inhabit in the show:

We didn't want to root any of our modifications on the idea of existing insecurities or discomforts. A. Human is about the freedom to explore this world and live in this world in any way you choose.



And though some may find them freaky, Huck doesn't believe the "implants" are necessarily a bad thing in the world of his show:

When you think of the future, you think dark, dystopian—there are all these images that come to mind. I didn't want to create a utopian world, but I definitely wanted to create a world that was optimistic or, at the bare minimum, neutral.



Many on the internet, inspired by the celebrities' new "style" are modeling their own implants.




These people have some serious make-up skills!


Unfortunately, without a lot of context as to why they're wearing the implants, the internet has been pretty merciless in its disgust at the strange fashion.


Are the implants really that disturbing? We'll all have to see A. Human to find out.



But if so many celebs are into it, why not give A. Human a chance?

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
