Man with tail

Olegtail Occasionally, humans are born with tails that are usually removed surgically shortly after birth. According to this brief video, Oleg Polovski of Moscow appears not only to to have kept his tail but can even, er, "wag" it. I don't buy the description that he's the "first case of human moving tail" but it's still a rare sight if it's indeed real.

  1. Wonderful? Wonderment? I wonder why anyone would leave a nasty thing like that on their body? I would have cut it off myself! Actually, –my– mother would have cut it when I was a baby! This guy probably doesn’t date much.

  2. Normally I would never say anything like this, but you may want to get rid of the picture. It’s actually making me sick. Not sure why but it really bothers me.

  3. I’m with LECTROID! Jeezum Crow. That’s grody. Between this and the Hello Kitty contacts, it’s a perfectly freaky end to 2007.

  4. BLARF! really, that made my stomach flip. As far as a directory of wonderful things goes…where does this fit?

  5. The responses remind me of homophobia. “Yay diversity! Except don’t make me look at anything icky.” I’m hoping that we start evolving functional sixth fingers and all kinds of cool stuff. I thought this blog was supposed to be big with futurists and SF fans.

  6. I know a guy who has his tail in a jar of formaldehyde. I always wondered if his parents should’ve let him decide whether to have it removed or not when he grew up, but after seeing this one, I think they made the right call.

    And “diversity?” Seriously? Hmm. A tail seems to me like the ultimate in retro fashion, not something futuristic at all. You know, now that I think about it, I would like to hear the Pope explain this…

    True, but within context. For one thing, just because you enjoy looking at the future doesn’t mean you give up all your asthetic values. In the future, if you want a tail, I hope it will be more interesting than that gross little nubbin. I mean, a real tail, with a nasty pointy end so you can poke people in the eye. And a tail really seems like a low-g/0-g option.

  8. That is a gross looking tail. No color pigments or human dermis. It looked to me like the forgot to wipe.

  9. it’s kinda like a unicorn chaser, albeit a confusing and slightly disturbing one. and yet I want to look at it over and over.

  10. Sorry, I’m prejudiced against tails! Ewwwwwww! Although if he ever dates, how does it work in bed?
