BAMBOO TORTURE & EXECUTION
Flaying is where a bamboo shoot is slowly grown through the body of a victim, reportedly used in East and South Asia. After World War II, stories circulated of Japanese soldiers inflicting “bamboo torture” upon U.S. and Allied prisoners of war, where the victim was tied securely in place above a young bamboo shoot. Over several days, the sharp, fast growing shoot would first puncture, then completely penetrate the victim’s body, eventually emerging through the other side. The cast of the TV program MythBusters investigated bamboo torture in a 2008 episode and found that a bamboo shoot can penetrate through several inches of ballistic gelatin in three days. For research purposes, ballistic gelatin is considered comparable to human flesh, and the experiment thus supported the viability of this form of torture, not its historicity. In her memoir “Hakka Soul”, the Chinese poet and author Woon-Ping Chin mentions the “bamboo torture” as one of those tortures the locals believed the Japanese performed on prisoners. This tale of using live trees impaling persons as they grow is, however, not confined to the context of WWII and the Japanese as torturers, but was recorded in the 19th century, when Malays alleged the Siamese used (among other punishments) the sprout of the nipah palm in the manner of bamboo torture during the 1821 Siamese invasion of Kedah. A “Madras civilian”, in his travel description from 1820s India, said this use of bamboo was a well known punishment in Ceylon.
Get down on guys who take steroids all you want, but they actually have to put the work in at the gym to look the way they do.

Three guys found a grimy, disgusting mattress in the middle of the woods that was obviously used for some back alley fucking, and cleaned it up a bit. The good Samaritans changed the sheets, planted some flowers, and even left a Tupperware organizer full of clean panties and condoms (wrap it before you tap it, kids). The fuck mattress had become the love mattress.
ARLINDO de Souza officially has the biggest biceps in Brazil, measuring a whopping 29 INCHES. But their immense size comes with risks, as the 43-year-old from Olinda, Brazil, injects them with a combination of oil and alcohol —“ that can cause infections, amputations or even DEATH.
Arlindo, who is also known as The Mountain, claims that he can get the beefcake look without having to work for it, and admits that he became addicted to getting them as big as possible. He revealed: "You inject it and it swells you up without having to work out. "Each time I took it I wanted more and more. "For me there wasn’t a limit."
The injections weren’t the only unnatural method Arlindo used —“ he had already been taking steroids, hormones and even HORSE VITAMINS to bulk up his body.
But a pal at the gym offered him the new cocktail to get the upper hand on his muscley rivals, and he went on to inject himself three times a week for two months to get his Hulk-like figure.
