Sorry maybe graphic?

I think Pakistan maybe? Not sure. Could not find any legit news atricles.

I can't imagine what was going through their minds?? I guess they are doing this for their religion? Apparently their balls are made a a type of metal?

Yea, you may want to add a warning in you're thread, that got pretty graphic.
Why in christ's name would someone do that to themselves??

It is called Flagellation, and it is a religious practice in both Christianity and Islam, it is done to induce altered mental states. Pain will cause the release of endorphin within the brain, something similar to the 'runner's high'.

Here is another video and article: raphic/

Site for the Christian version:

I personally am not a fan of pain, and so don't really 'get it', however it is an ancient practice and seems to work for some.

I hear you get a pretty crazy endorphin rush when your head gets cut off. Talk about an out of body experience.

Seriously though, I wonder how many people accidentally sever their spinal cords or at least suffer some sort of nerve damage. Some people think self-mutilation is very helpful, but I'll just say to each his own.

I got to the second strike and a guy comes in to hold his back together.
I will not watch anymore.
People are not always awesome.

Edit: I never realised ATS let this kind of graphic gore pass on here.
Still not watching it though.

A few years ago I would have, but when I'm lying in bed trying to sleep these kind of things infiltrate my mind.
