Sorry for the string of creepy posts, but this is the most terrifying news article I've read in a long time. Just in case you're making a list, I don't want an appearance-altering illness for Christmas. Click on the link to see more pictures:

Mystery surrounds Yushchenko ailment
What ails Viktor Yushchenko?
As Ukraine's popular pro-Western opposition leader claimed victory Tuesday in hotly contested presidential elections, the mystery surrounding an appearance-altering illness that twice prompted him to check into a Vienna hospital persisted.

I like how the doctors said that "...they could not rule out stress or a viral infection." What the hell happened to this guy? That article ended saying they found no traces of biotoxins (from bio-weaponry) on/in what gives?

I am voting for stress as the diagnosis. I bet he is one stressed out dude. At least he doesn't have a goiter, right?

"Yushchenko accused the Ukrainian authorities of poisoning him. His detractors suggested he'd eaten some bad sushi."

Whaaaaa? He says "Yeah, murder...definately trying to murder me", and they come back with -insert smarmy Sopranos' accent here- "nah, dat guy jus had some bad fish - what, it could happen." Love the wake-n-barf posts this A.M. Dan!

I've had horribly traumatic nightmares that were not nearly as sickening as what that guy has got for real. It's like an episode of the Twighlight Zone where the good looking guy turns ugly. There has to be an episode like that. I wouldn't know, I can only remember one episode of the Twighlight Zone and it was about dolls in a barrel.

Anyway, that poor guy. The bad sushi comment is kind of a kick in the gut, isn't it.

I have just gotten the worse case of CREEPS ever at your Twilight Zone reference. It was Talky Tina and to this day my mom apologizes profusely for allowing me to watch it with her. I was six. "My name is Talky Tina and I'm going to kiiiiiill you." -- had me frantically searching under my bed until the age of 10 (no lie) and "making nice" to my own seemingly sweet, gentle inanimate friends by talking to them in the dark and telling them how much I enjoyed their companionship lest they feel ignored and decide to gut me in my sleep. I'm not even close to lying. NOTE: Talking dolls = requisite psychotherapy.

I know this seems horrifying and I don't ever want to get this or have raw fish again, but Dan, we both know what is worse... the guy who woke up with an toxic mold in his face and they had to scoop it all away. Having no face tops everything.

Apparently they don't have lotion in Ukraine...
