That just is not smart. At all.

I mean, most things are fine if it`s part of your belief, but that`s just STUPID.

I`d like to be the one with the coconut in hand, I`d hit the so hard MY hand bleeds.

I feel bad for them. While I find this disturbingly stupid I respect their belief. Unfortunately it`s this silent acceptance that allows them to continue hurting themselves and those they will pass this ritual down to.

After a week fasting, if they get to eat the coconut, I`m fine with it. If not, they definitely are retarded

I hear what you`re saying EvilBloop, but sometimes things are so retarded they need to be discussed, and ridiculed if necessary. I don`t think that just because something is "part of someone`s culture/religion" that it should deserve some special respect that makes it taboo to deride it in any way.

For example, in Saudi Arabia they`re just now getting around to regulating child brides since a man of 60 married a child of 8.

Sure, it`s someone`s religion/culture. Is it retarded? Yup.

You know... I understand how every culture has their own rituals and each is deeply spiritual to every culture. But I have to say that this one is pretty ridiculous. "I`ve been punished by the gods... never mind the fact that I just had some guy smash a coconut on my head. It was the gods doing. Yes."

....Right

I hate to be "that guy", but come on you guys. This is someones culture, be respectful. Chaitanya is right, we do odd things too. If it is something that someone believes, don`t insult it. I mean really, it seems like even the mods have things to learn. Am I an atheist, yes, do I insult peoples beliefs and way of life, no. These are the things that give us a bad name

"If the devotee gets injured [by being brained by a f*cking coconut], it`s taken as a sign that they`re being punished by the gods"

For f*ck sake, several millenia in the making and we still haven`t admitted yet as a societal whole that religious hyperbole is deeply retarded on a very profoud level.

Amazed. Stunned. Quick, someone bean me in the cranium with a coconut, then maybe that will help me understand why a significant part of our societal reasoning is f*cking caveman.

Religion. Sh*t it.

to support desi, you people think THIS is wierd/odd?

what about when those idiots use mousetraps on their tongues, ears, fingers, and balls?

what about lighting themselves, yes setting their OWN body on fire then jumping into a freezing lake?
oh oh what about the lighting their various body parts on fire?
and dont even get me started on the nasty other things like licking subway poles, eating gum from the street etc.

and i forgot that game with the knife and your hand?

yeah thats completely normal.tey all know what their doing. yup. nothing wrong there.

Well the thing is, desi, it doesn`t matter that it`s the first time or not. Someone saw it, then recorded it, and put it up on the web. Someone here thought it would help our boredom to see this, so they posted it here.

On-topic: Those guys have very thick skulls O_O

Does anyone remember that guy who tried to break a whole bunch of coconuts with his head?

Maybe he needs to visit here for a few months...
