Human beings, as a species, have done some pretty amazing things. Spaceships and meatball subs, for instance, being two of man’s standout contributions to the universe. But, on the whole, we’re also kind of a species that shouldn’t be allowed to have nice things.

For every fantastic human invention, a handful of people will always show up to go way overboard and ruin it for everyone. College students pretty much ruined beer and parties for everybody, now we’ve got Tea Party advocates taking the generally pretty cool “car” concept and making them belch out thick, black smoke for seemingly no reason other than to be jerks to the environment and everyone in a 20-yard radius.

Oh, and you’ve got people like the newest “Living Barbie” who took cosmetic surgery and makeup and toys – all generally useful inventions – and used them to turn themselves into freakish nightmare fuel.

Russia’s Lolita Richi looks like she might be able to wrest the living doll title from the currently more well-known Barbie impersonator and diet guru Valeria Lukyanova. There’s currently not too much information (in English or Japanese, anyway) about how or why Richi got this way, so we’ll just leave you with a handful of her moderately disturbing pictures.

Sure, she kind of even looks a little cute at first glance, but don’t blame us when the insidiously unnerving plastic sheen of her skin starts to haunt your nightmares.
