For most of us, it's simply a matter of time until the stress of life drives us to the spa. Don't laugh! More people do it regularly than you might think.But while you're relaxing and having fun, just make sure that you understand the inherent risks of participating in certain spa treatments. I'm specifically talking about the exotic (and occasionally dangerous) things that go on in "fish spas." No, a fish spa is not a spa for fish. It's a little weirder than that. iStock The treatment basically involves you putting your feet into a tank filled with harmless garra rufa fish.

15 Weird Physical Warning Signs Your Body Gives You That Most People Ignore

I am, admittedly, a huge hypochondriac. It's an annoying habit I picked up from my dad that I can't seem to shake, and it actually might be getting worse as I get older. For instance, my best friend reads all my medication warnings for me so that someone knows, because I would manifest every single symptom listed if I read them myself. But even with my level of health-related paranoia, I had no idea that there were so many subtle signs of illness that we all may be ignoring on a daily basis. They might seem harmless, but studies have shown that there could be something much worse lurking behind each one of these little clues. 1.

For conspiracy theorists, looking for UFOs in official NASA photographs has become a sort of rite of passage. While there are more than a few of these suspected photos and videos featuring alleged crafts from another world, I want to focus on just one today. Earlier this month, some UFO enthusiasts spotted what appeared to be an unexplained "formation" in a NASA image. Here's the photograph in question zoomed in on the formation.

Many sad men have dealt with baldness, but now it's Mother Nature's turn. Near the town of Newman, Australia, bizarre patches of geological baldness that people have cutely nicknamed "fairy circles" are appearing across the Outback.

Did you know that there's a subspecies of scorpion called the death stalker? While most people in the world know that the arachnids aren't to be messed with, some just don't take the hint. All scorpions are poisonous, carrying debilitating venom in their tails, but some are more dangerous than others.
