The Lonely Island (Dick in a Box)
Deep sea Hatchetfish have the amazing ability to camouflage themselves using the light around them. Their scales are very reflective and with what little light there is in the abyss, they are pretty much invisible from the side and with how thin they are, they are just as hard to spot from the front and back.
But most fish hunt from below, using the sun above to see the shadow/silhouette of their prey. What Hatchetfish can do to counteract this is use a line of light emitting organs called photophores on their underbelly to match the light above and thus blend in with the very light that would give them away.
They also look like damned souls condemned to the cold, dark pit of the world.
In 1961, Leonid Rogozov, 27, was the only surgeon in the Soviet Antarctic Expedition. During the expedition, he felt severe pain in the stomach and had a high fever. Rogozov examined himself and discovered that his appendix was inflamed and could burst at any time. With a local anesthesia, he operated himself to remove the appendix. An engineer and a meteorologist assisted surgery.
