Headless Gymnast
Status: Strange but real
image A strange photo can be seen on Yahoo! News Photo. It looks like this gymnast is headless, though, of course, that's just an illusion created by the angle of the camera. The gymnast is Katherine Coronel of Venezuela. The photo was taken by Martin Bernetti.

The fact that she can even bend her head that far back is pretty impressive.

I like the way that it looks like her foot is growing out of her head. But then again, I'm easily amused. smile

I've seen some of these pics, and they still freak me out. Cool though.
