The woman was alive and she had WORMS in her BRAIN.

Oh, it's shopped?! Wow, fooled me! Then again, I'm sort of gullable. I wondered how she functioned with THAT much brain missing though…

Thanks SubCultured! I feel relieved that skullworms aren't real. You're my hero for today. <3

Photoshop. It's a thing that lets you edit pictures.

Please don't post these graphic images ok?
Change them to links the way I have :)

I've looked that one up on Snopes before, according to them and the advice of doctors as well as people on the scene that was a Chinese MAN with some kind of cancer or something- can't remember it exactly, but it wasn't caused by a maggot or worm. He felt no pain at all and was fully aware of the problem. Just just walked into hospital.

As for why it might look a bit off, cancer and infection changes the topography of this somewhat…

-This is from memory mind you, and I'm not infallible, but I'm reasonably sure that was the case. Look it up at Snopes yourself if you want.

They're NOT Photoshoped.
Told you I was fallible… But I almost remembered right, this is the REAL story:
Snopes
These images are in fact real and undoctored, and they are indeed photographs taken of a patient whose brain surface was exposed and crawling with insects. The pictures date from October 2002, and they are photographs of a man in his 70s who was suffering from an unusual form of cancer which had eaten away at the upper portion of his skull and scalp but who had not sought any medical treatment because the condition was not causing him pain. The man was brought to the trauma center at Stanford University Hospital (where the photographs shown here were taken) by San Mateo County paramedics who had been summoned to the scene after the man was involved in a minor automobile accident and who found him in his car in the condition pictured.

There you go: He had cancer, didn't care, the top off his head was exposed and not painful (because the brain cannot feel pain), so the exposed flesh got infected by insects; probably maggots that were probably NOT a problem since they'd mostly eat the dead flesh that the cancer was killing… So all in all they were probably helping him! o_O
He got in a minor car crash and the horrified paramedics saw his head and rushed him into hospital lol!

I dunno… We already had two experts say they're shopped.

Heh, Well at least “skull worms” weren't the case, but you can still get infested with anything of you have an open wound.
You can also get certain types of Tapeworms going into your brain… I think the one's you get from Pork and some other types of meats. Pork's a bad one though for that. It's very rare and they don't really chew away or anything, but to have them growing up there is obviously bad news and could kill you.

also in context, if your brain exploded (unlikely because of the cranium) with worms they wouldn't be giving you oxygen. if they did cut open his head to see, they would do that after he is dead.

also if that is a cross section of the head from the top you would be able to see bones and a lot more blood coming from there because of the blood brain barrier which helps to keep the brain from hitting the side of the cranium.

also the wound is out of perspective with how the picture is shot.
if you would look in a different angle it would be a big bump on his forehead which would cause more stretching in the skin around an have more folds below the bump.

if you look at the pillow under him it has only small amounts of blood in his hair and pillow which might be from the original photo with a man that has a head injury

also, it's a man, not a woman from the stubbles consistent with a person that shaves regularly (equal length hair)

lol! It's real though, they investigated it. This is the page with the info:
http://www.snopes.com/photos/medical/maggots.asp

As I say, it didn't explode with an infestation, it was cancer that'd probably long ago transformed the top of his skull into what you see there. The maggots are a minor and not entirely negative aspect of the entire mess.

who proved it? there is no source from it. no real scientists names, only a possible name for the victim

i can say “numerous scientists claim the face on mars is really a guy buried in sand”

or

“some scientists claim there is no evolution, only intelligent design based on the stinkbug”

from the site
Someone
The two disparate explanations for these photographs given above are a good indicator of a common Internet phenomenon: Someone makes pictures available on-line, they begin to circulate through e-mail forwards, the original attribution is lost along the way, people begin to make up stories to explain the origins of the now-sourceless photographs, and those fabricated explanations become attached to the pictures as they continue to
circulate.

Because I've seen more info on it there, the doctors present on the scene actually gave info on what happened. Snopes is pretty credible Sub, If you don't give any weight to what they say, then not much on the net is believable. Their whole point is to debunk frauds and find the truth. You could always ask them for more info if you like.

But apart from that, it's not a disagreement with me, it's with them.
