Taylor Berman · 03/05/15 01:47PM

Earlier today, ProPublica published a fascinating state-by-state breakdown of workers' comp benefits. Because of a lack of federal oversight, the compensation for the same injury varies tremendously depending on the state in which it occurred. For example, a worker in Illinois who lost an arm would receive as much as $439,858, while a worker in Alabama would receive only $48,840 for the same injury. This disparity in compensation holds true for other injuries, such as severed or crushed testicles.

Rich Juzwiak · 08/20/13 09:45AM

Wesley Warren Jr.'s ball sac was about the size of a dolphin's head. It made him into something of a viral star. He appeared on shows like TLC's Strange Sex, and was interviewed for articles claiming he enjoyed the fame resulting from his scrotal lymphedema. He waddled everywhere with an upside down hoodie between his legs and sometimes used his scrotum as a mobile table, off which he'd eat food. He lived with this condition for about five years, which he blames on the healthcare system.
