    LSD? I doubt it. It's more likely to be PCP if drugs are the cause.


    Plus, y'know, being a total mental.

    I'll give you 10:1 odds that the "bio-customization" is nothing to do with genetic engineering. It's most likely the same dyeing technology that's used on tropical fish to make their colors look brighter.

    Still fucked up though.

    Bath salts. I've only seen one article (I've only seen two total) that mentioned bath salts.

    Are we dyeing fish with the bath salts or going batshit on them? I missed a step.

    We're going mad from eating fish dyed with bathsalts.

    Try to keep up.

    Yeah, that's why I always snort my bathsalt-dyed tetras. That it clears my sinuses too is just a happy side effect.

    It's worth noting that the original article linked to in this story states that the man is emotionally troubled and has a history of violence:

    Man hospitalized after throwing own intestines at police

    A New Jersey man who repeatedly stabbed himself and threw pieces of his flesh and intestines at law enforcement officials remains hospitalized in critical condition on Tuesday, according to the Associated Press.

    Police on Sunday responded to call from someone saying 43-year-old Wayne Carter was threatening to hurt himself with a 12-inch knife.

    When police arrived at the residence, the man yelled at the officers and stabbed himself. As police entered, he threw pieces of his own body at them and threatened them with his knife.

    When pepper-spray had no effect on Carter, police retreated and called the SWAT team, who subdued him with beanbag projectiles.

    “The scene was a bloody mess,” a police official told Cliffview Pilot. “The SWAT team members had to be decontaminated due to the amount of blood.”

    Carter reportedly damaged a major stomach artery and had more than 50 stab wounds.

    Police are awaiting the results of a blood test to determine if Carter had ingested any psychoactive substances.

    @WORSETHANDETROIT - Police are awaiting the results of a blood test to determine if Carter had ingested any psychoactive substances

    I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I just can't help myself.

    Couldn't they just test the bits of intestine he threw at them?

    ...Sorry.

    @ Purple Wyrm Ha!

    With this and the Miami zombie story, it feels like Spurrier, Ennis & Lapham are writing the news.

    If there's a follow-up story about that intestines guy trying to eat a nurse, we're fucked.

    ...so, on a less gory note, this was news to me.

    Apparently the air is running out of space for the internet.

    Fuck these guys.

    It's like something out of Kafka. Anti-science anarchists in Italy appear to be ramping up their violent and frankly surreal campaign. Having claimed responsibility for shooting the boss of a nuclear engineering company in Genoa, the group has vowed to target Finmeccanica, the Italian aerospace and defence giant.

    In a diatribe sent on 11 May to Corriere della Sera newspaper on 11 May, the Olga Cell of the Informal Anarchist Federation International Revolutionary Front said it shot Roberto Adinolfi, head of Ansaldo Nucleare, in the leg four days earlier. "With this action of ours, we return to you a tiny part of the suffering that you, man of science, are pouring into this world," the statement said. It also pledged a "campaign of struggle against Finmeccanica, the murderous octopus". Ansaldo is one of Finmeccanica's many offshoots.

    The cell has previously targeted nanotechnology researchers, and in 2010 it tried to bomb an IBM lab in Zurich, Switzerland. The attempt resulted in three conspirators being caught and jailed.

    In April 2011 the anarchists sent a parcel bomb to Swissnuclear, a group in Olten, Switzerland, that lobbies on behalf of the nuclear industry. The bomb exploded, injuring two people.

    Woman eats three-week-old son's brain. Yes. You read that right.

    EDIT: Zombie jokes aside, this is seriously disturbing. I think I need to, I dunno, eat some ice cream and huddle up in a corner for a bit.

    EDIT 2: Whoops, obviously need to check the date on news stories before I publish them. Carry on, folks.
