Mosha the elephant was only a baby when her life became much more painful and difficult.

When she was two years old, she stepped on a land mine near the Thai-Burma border. She lost most of her front leg. After that, it seemed impossible for her to live a normal life, but a kindhearted doctor in Lampang, Thailand, stepped in and changed all of that for her.

Upon hearing about Mosha’s unfortunate accident, Dr. Therdchai Jivacate, an orthopedic surgeon, wanted to do something to help her. No prosthetics existed at the time for elephants, so Jivacate decided to create one himself. Now, 15 years later, the grateful elephant makes it perfectly clear how she feels about her amazing doctor.

I hope you brought your tissues, people.

This guy is simply inspiring. If I ever get to help animals even half as much as he does, then I’ll die a very happy person.

Is it just me, or are mannequins just a little bit freaky? While I don’t think it’s the only reason I do my clothes shopping online, it’s certainly a factor. I don’t have to deal with faceless, demonic mannequins when I’m on Amazon.

Anyway, while using mannequins is creepy in and of itself, what one store in Reno, Nevada, is doing with theirs has ratcheted up the creepy factor by 10. Through the strategic use of a digital projector, they managed to imbue a faceless mannequin with life…sorta. If you’re not unsettled by the video below, then you officially have an ironclad constitution.

That is…incredibly disturbing. I applaud those shopkeepers for their creativity, but I would wager that this thing drives people away more than anything else.
