Fuuma, I don't intend this to offend, but I thought this was a LabelKing post when I first read it.

I saw a guy on here, back before they started making you pay, where he castrated himself and then put his testicles underneath the skin on his forehead to look like little horns.

That I have a hard time believing -- without replumbing the arteries the cells would die. And since there's no evaporative airflow, some serious rot would set in, with ensuing infections, etc.

Yeah, that's what you'd think. Maybe they were somehow preserved, or he castrated himself and then put plastic ones up there. Dunno, it was a bit strange, to say the least.

I just ate lunch. Not sure why I clicked this topic, now that I think of it.

Their motivations.

You can't know this, and to assert that you can is inane. Hence the "mindreader" comment.

I've got a few exotic piercings and have done a ritual suicide suspension, and the one thing I've learned from it all is that the more you incorporate yourself into the lifestyle, the more normal the lifestyle seems. Sometimes I forget how freaked out my friends will get when I show them pictures of things I consider somewhat pedestrian.

Oh my god, this is just sick. Not for the squemish. It just looks unbearably painful, I'm not even going to link a picture.

You can't know it, but you might be able to establish the probability of it being true using some psychological analysis. Just as inane is to take source documents at face value.

Does the idea that saints might be more human than they make themselves out to be offend or surprise you?

Somewhat less so than to ignore same and ascribe a motivation based on one's own predilictions. You really can't psychoanalize someone you've never met. To try to is just silly.

A reading of the lives of any one of them shows them to be quite human and full of faults- there's no need to fabricate any.
