About the missing post

Let me write it anyway, because , like, I am done with work! So apparently there is this dude, who is a cannibal. And he wanted to eat Human flesh. So, does he go the path of Hannibal Lecter and abducts people? Nooo. Not this guy. He puts up an ad for people willing to get eaten. The Crazy-ehh, I mean the crazier- part? He gets over 200 responses. 200! If you're unfamiliar with this whole thing, in 2001 Armin posted an internet ad seeking a young man for "slaughter and consumption." The ad was answered by more than 200 people. (You'd think that would be the kicker, but there are enough kickers for this case to hit the Crazy World Cup. ) [...]

The details are enough to make Leatherface barf into his mask. Suffice it to say, Meiwes found his prey, Bernd Juergen Brandes, on the internet via his cannibal ad. The pair met at Meiwes' home in Rotenberg, had sex, then Brandes downed sleeping pills and whiskey, and Meiwes eventually stabbed him, butchered the body, and ate a good deal of it over the next few months. A story on News24.com also notes that "Meiwes sliced off the man's penis, which they fried and planned to eat together but found it was inedible."

So, when you find yourself mulling over the issues of consensual cannibalism, butchery, and fresh human penises prepared in a variety of ways, a la "Iron Chef," I can't help but wonder: What's holding up Armageddon? Can't some higher power just stick a fork in us and declare us "done?"

For real!

Man, where did you dig that story up?

Anyway, thank you for reminding me of that sicko... not. As you can imagine, he was all over the news for weeks over here when he was arrested and when the trial was and blah.

It is an old story, but then I live 30 km from the German border *lol*
It is one of those stories you would hope was an urban legend.
Recently I read a story about a 52 year old woman who stabbed her husband for not having sex with her in spite of high heels and g-string. That was in Argentina. Beware of women around 50 - you never know what might happen to you *rofl*

The people that I truly wonder about are the ones who answered the ad!

Some notes:

- What was missing in that story was that cannibal and the victim had sex, but then the victim had some slight doubt whether it wanted to be eaten, and so the cannibal drove it at once back to the station. Only then the victim decided definitely that he wants to get eaten, so they drove back.

- The story about the severed penis was that they cooked it to long, so it lost all juice and wasn't edible any more.

- The whole thing was taped so you can know for sure that the cannibal never pressured the victim. This is a real juristical dilemma: You simply WANT to get the cannibal for murder, but this rather doesn't look like one.
