....Owie! I watched a Taboo show, and this couple got married while being hung up in the air. They did a normal wedding (Cept that) and it took about 20 minutes and they stayed up there the whole FRICKING time. OUCHHHHHH

Necros- Open your mind. You`re not the only person who exists in this world. Just because YOU don`t find meaning in it doesn`t mean it`s meaningless. And dreadlocks have been worn for centuries, for some people it`s a religious expression and maybe others just wear it because in their opinion it looks good. Whatever the reason there is no need to judge......

I`ll leave my soapbox now.

there is a point, and there is reasoning, maybe not for you, but to them there is. whether or not you can comprehend that is determined by your own beliefs. if you dont get it fine but really there is more than just what you perceive in the world around you. if you dont think there is a reason or point to this then dont worry no one is forcing you to do it, but noe one here is bashing whatever you believe or feel like doing

if you do not see the point in it then instead of closing your mind and all acceptance, read a bit on human rites and aboriginal ceremonies, i don`t care if he is white and has dreadlocks thats what he has chosen for himself. we are all still a tribe we are all still if you believe in spirituality connected to each other and to the earth. maybe they seek enlightenment, maybe pleasure, a new experience to live through. we only have one life, what do you seek by degrading these people? do you seek to be part of a herd or just to express your ignorance? i am Catholic but i am also very in tune with where i came from and i will seek God through his teachings down my own path, he will accept me as i am because we are all unique and he is all loving.

"SuperSmash, I think you`re missing the point:
They have freaking HOOKS grafted into their skin and like to hang there for the hell of it. What is this "A Man Called Horse?"

I don`t really care what people think is normal, this is just pointless!

And your whole "labels" point kind of fails when you apply labels to others who disagree with you."

My comment was pretty off-topic, so it doesn`t apply too much to the actual pics. However, what these people are doing is freaky, but that doesn`t make them freaks.

I wasn`t labeling. I was describing individual characteristics without saying that if they think one way or do one thing, then all these other completely unrelated characteristics also apply.

Oh i have seen worse in person. in my favorite show (the circus of horrors)seriously check it out people the best freak show you will ever see. a guy had 2 of thoes meat hooks in his back and he was suspended upsideown in the air by his feet.people attached chains to the hooks attaching the other end of the chains to a steal barrel drum. his feet were lifted higher so the barrel began lifted off the ground and as the hooks were taking all the weight of the barrel. i thought it would rip the hook`s out his back but the guy was fine.

Baal, it is almost maddening to me how people put on blinders in life. They speak of what they do not know. They paint entire groups with a broad brush and are more closed to different views than the people they ridicule. They have no logic, no arguments, only immature comebacks. All they know is what others tell them. If they do actually seek out their own knowledge, they do so with the same closed mind that leads them the rest of their life. They see the entire world as labels.

Taylor Stone: "No one is crapping all over you for your beliefs".

In THIS thread, so far no. Does belief in God play a major role in about 1/4 of all IAB posts? Yup. Is it universally in a bad light? Yup. Does Islam in particular get a bad rap on these forums? Yup.

You were saying?

I also don`t think it`s wrong for people to criticize religion, why should it be, it`s when they just make poo up, lie, pretend to be well informed, don`t know the material, or show legitimate bias by only applying arguments against and not applying the arguments when they are used for things they believe in.

That`s the problem. Not "this part of your religion is silly". Hell, I know the where and what and why`s of problems in Islam. I know all the philosophical conundrums, and the questions that the Mullahs can`t answer.

I`ve never been asked them by the online debaters. Been debating 10 years now.

It`s based off a Native American tradition used as a right of passage and meditation. It`s kind of similar to walking on hot coals... you let your mind take over the pain and it aids in meditating.

Maybe some people should stop being so small-minded. "lol thats stoopid wat a bunch of morrons" just makes you look like the idiot; it`s not hurting you.

taylor stone, you speak more truth than Baal. Everyone knows that crystals and stones are pointless, but don`t ridicule someone for their beliefs. Just kidding.

Seriously, people should be able to believe what they want without people thinking less of them. You can make fun (keyword: FUN) of them, but don`t really let it affect your opinion of them. I may not think crystals have any power, but that doesn`t mean I look down someone who thinks they do.

Baalthazaq, no one here is crapping all over your beliefs and the things you enjoy, so do us a favor and don`t dump on everyone else`s. I`m a Pagan, and part of my faith involves crystals and stones... We don`t agree with most Christan beliefs, but we don`t call people wrong for believing it. Its called respect. And its called being as good person. No matter what faith you believe in, treating others with respect is a key lesson. So before you call people morons, learn to accept that people might not see things your way. And that doesn`t make them any more right or wrong than you.

I`m calling them morons. It releases endorphins, which gives them a buzz. That`s it. It`s not about transcendence or enlightenment.

Neither is: Crystals, Stones, Magnets, Drugs, Cupping, Acupuncture ... eating reindeer poo, and drinking blood.

i see people calling them morons and stuff, you are walking ignorance. i am very into human culture and anthropology and these practices are common and primal throughout the world. if you are not into it great but at least try to understand why people do these things, they aren`t masochists (maybe some are) but it`s more of a way to transcend, to enlighten and be in touch with what you are seeking. i have mayan ancestry, i for one have gauged ears and it makes me feel closer to my ancestry, it taught me patience and commitment. i am not drawn towards being hung but that does not make me trash someone who is.

"Why is it considered stupid?
I don`t daydream, I ponder. That is different then 99.87% of the human population.
I also have an "Enough" for my desires, a skill that 97% of humans don`t have (They always want more).
Does that make me an idiot?"

I have a friend who does this, he`s very much into side show performance, and you know what, he`s such a nice, cool guy. He has a normal job, working with the elderly, a great girlfriend, regular hobbies. He`s not scary, or freaky, but under the shirt (and pants, which he`s not afraid to show everyone, even though you might not need to see proof of that and would rather just take his word...) he`s covered in tattoos and piercings. On weekends he does sideshow performance for bands, piercing his cheeks with sharpened (and sterilized) bicycle spokes, eating glass, laying on a bed of nails while you stand on his chest, cutting his tongue with razor blades, etc. And, upon occasion, he and a friend of his go on excursions to do the very thing in the photos above. For him, and these people I`m sure, it`s a release, like going to a day spa, only more spiritual, perhaps.
So I say: Judge not, least ye be judged. As long as they`re not hurting anyone (who doesn`t want to be, that is)

What`s the point? I think it`s messed up. However, a good friend of mine hangs. There`s something about it that turns these people on to it.
It`s like... some people would think burning the dead is desecrating them, where others would think that burying them is desecrating them. At least, there was a time people thought those two separate things (if I only had the examples.. history`s not my strong point.
