All the gifts I do not have

Be prepared for something amazing but creepy.

This is amazing artistry. My grandmother used to create ceramic dolls and I thought hers were so realistic, but these take it to a completely different level.

Not even 2 minutes into the video I thought, “Man, I wish I could do things like this. I’m just not an artist.”

You may have had a similar thought when you saw it.

I’m going to stop you before that train of thought gets too far out of the station. These thoughts are the kind that get us into trouble and make us feel poorly about ourselves. Instead of being able to just appreciate Michael Zajkov’s amazing skills, we turn his skill against us. We focus on what we can’t do.

I am confident that we have skills that Mr. Zajkov doesn’t. That’s not a slight against him in any way. No one person is gifted to do all the things. That’s why we all matter so much. Each of us brings something different to the table. The world needs all of us with our own individual gifts to become a more amazing place.

The video should remind us not of the things we don’t or feel we “can’t” do, but push us to excel at the things we do well. It should give us pause to examine our lives to find our own greatness. Once we see it, we can reach deep inside to surpass limits we’ve imposed on ourselves.

But the first step is to stop comparing ourselves to others.

Gifts that shouldn’t make anyone’s holiday wish list…

Since it’s the season for gift giving, I just want to throw some things out there that no one should be buying. Under any circumstances.

1. Haribo Sugar-free Gummy Bears

Sugar Free Gummies

These will ruin your stomach if you eat more than five. And everyone eats more than five, because they’re tiny and delicious. I’m not sure what’s in them that causes such digestive issues, but take it from me and my personal experience. You don’t want to eat these. Unless you’re constipated and desperate to change that.

2. Taxidermy Pikachu Mouse

Taxidermied Pikachu

I appreciate being Pikachu’s fan. But I think this takes things a bit too far…

3. Taxidermy Meerkat

Meerkat Meerkat 2

I think this is actually going to give me nightmares.


4. Make Your Own Vagina Mold

Mold Vagina

Uh, right. I haven’t figured out why this exists yet. I also can’t believe it would work all that well or that it could be all that safe.

5. Edible Chocolate Anus (The Anus that Made Britain Great)



I don’t think I’ll ever look at chocolate the same way again. Also, was there a model for this anus? If so, who was it? I’m not sure that would change my opinion on whether it should exist, but they’re fair questions.

What have you seen that you wouldn’t give anyone, ever?
