    Started having chest pains last week, thought I was a goner for sure. Got so bad, I started writing goodbye letters to my family, LOL. Got into the doctor yesterday, and they checked me out, apparently just a pulled muscle in my chest. Hurts like a son of a gun, but their tests sure relieved me. Funny how impending mortality allows you to reevaluate your life, isn't it???

    Made a vow to myself to eat healthier and stress less, we'll see how long that lasts!

    EC glad you came out of the Dr.'s office with just a pulled mussle. Strange how some folks get turned on by death ....

    KASSEL, Germany (Reuters) - A German confessed on Wednesday to killing and eating a willing victim in a case that shocked Germany, exposed the dark side of the Internet and could make legal history.

    Armin Meiwes, 42, said at the start of his trial in the central German city of Kassel that eating a man felt like a religious act.

    Offering a full account of the killing that has gained him worldwide notoriety as "The Cannibal of Rotenburg," Meiwes said there were "hundreds, thousands" of people seeking to fulfil their desires to eat humans or be eaten via Internet adverts in forums called "Cannibal Cafe," "Guy Cannibals" and "Torturenet."

    Giving testimony so frank it drew gasps from the public gallery, Meiwes said he had buried the innards of the corpse and kept the skull and plastic bags of flesh in his freezer. He ate about 20 kg (44 pounds) of the flesh, defrosting it bit by bit.

    "With every piece of flesh I ate I remembered him," Meiwes, self-assured and well-spoken, told the judge. "It was like taking communion."

    Meiwes said his upbringing alone with a dominant mother had stoked his interest in cannibalism, making him long for a little brother he could make part of himself.

    The gaunt, bespectacled computer repair man told of how he made contact online with the 43-year-old Berlin computer specialist identified only as Bernd-Juergen B..

    He invited him to his elegant half-timbered home in Rotenburg near Kassel and killed him with a kitchen knife in a "slaughtering room" he had built containing meat hooks, a cage and a butcher's table.

    "He told me he had had the desire since he was a child to be slaughtered and eaten," Meiwes said. "He was very intelligent and I didn't see any sign that he was disturbed." Meiwes filmed the killing and the video tape may be shown to the court.

    The film shows Meiwes -- who has been described by his lawyer as a "gentleman of the old school" -- cutting off the victim's penis at the latter's request.

    "It was important to him that his member be cut off and that he witness it," said Meiwes. "It gave him pleasure." .... http://www.reuters.com/newsArticle.j...toryID=3932557

    Warning don't fall for the "member" enlargement spamms as the originator might have a eating disorder and just be fattening you up for a late dinner date.

    Been there and it certainly is startling to think this could be the big one. (I'm coming to join you, David.)

    I have no concerns for the after life. But, at this stage the whole idea of having to begin at the beginning again is very tiresome.

    But, I do have a concern about the sorrow to my loved ones at my passing from this incarnation. You never recover from the loss of a mother no matter how old you are or how old they were when they died. I just hate for my children to have to have that burden.

    Otherwise, Summerland seems like a great idea and I hope I can get a real rest before starting all this bullroar again.

    In my next life, maybe I can just be a philosopher or something.

    Mr.Merchant, if you do business in any way what-so-ever with parasites, your products will not be sold on my sites!!

    Farewell, CJ! I loved you when you were young and pure. I will try to remember you that way. Disclaimer: Comments are to be interpreted as opinion unless otherwise noted.

    That, ssanf, is something we can agree on, sounds rather pleasant.

    I'd recommend mouse rubbers before seeing how these sites monitize their perverted audience with popups & unders.....Internet adverts in forums called "Cannibal Cafe," "Guy Cannibals" and "Torturenet."

    I'm fearful of even Googling those...

    @ elbowcreek: I'm glad everything turned out well for you.

    @ Mike: YUCK! Disgusting story! I don't even want to know what you were looking at when you came across it. I just hope Charlie wasn't in the room.

    Glad to hear you are ok Elbow.......have you shown your wife Mikes story below?.....give her a few ideas


    Good story Mike...I want to do this when Pauline dies ....it will be a lot cheaper than burying or cremating her.

    With the money I save I can get a real nice car with a built in cooker so I can take her on picnics with me

    Take care

    I'll get Nova to send Gordo some of her hormone pills as he's overdosing on viagra or fixing to attach a snow ploy to his enlarged member and troll the neighborhood like the Canadian version of the poolboy.

    Does this mean there will be no more macoroni thrown on me in food fights? I sure hope so .

    Glad things weren't severe as you expected. Nova's simple message is really valued by us and should be by everyone. "Live life to the fullest - you only get one chance".

    With that said - we'll hope for peace, love and happiness in everyones life - even all those bad couponers - LOL.

    Great News - we can now support ebates and pp merchants - they are cleaning up their act and I'll bet it'll be a long time before we see another clip of ebates overwriting affiliate links.

    LOL, that was done in fun, hope the mac and cheese didn't stain your shirt! Just don't make me get my boiled egg-gattling gun out....

    Really, it's pretty anticlimatic, just some pulled muscles, but it did give me a serious reality check about my priorities.

    As a followup to our German Cannibal computer nerd .....

    KASSEL, Germany (AFP) - A German cannibal on trial for murder said he had been searching the Internet for another person to eat when he was arrested for consuming his first allegedly willing victim.


    Months after killing, dissecting and eating a man he met via the Internet, Armin Meiwes wrote in an e-mail to a friend: "I hope I will soon find another victim, the flesh has almost all gone."


    Meiwes, a 42-year-old computer technician, told a court in Kassel, central Germany, that his first victim, whom he claims volunteered to be killed, had "disappointed me in many ways".


    The man, a 43-year-old Berlin engineer named Bernd-Juergen Brandes, had lied about his age, claiming in e-mails to be 36, and did not want to try to get to know Meiwes better before his planned death, the accused said.


    Meiwes denies murder, insisting Brandes was a willing accomplice. "I saw the killing as helping him, helping him to die, helping him to kill himself," he said. "That is a taboo for which I must justify myself before God and the whole world." He said he wished he had seen a psychologist about his cannibal fantasies, "then things wouldn't have gone so far."


    Explaining the later e-mail, he said: "It was still my wish to slaughter a human, in other words, to dissect a body." His plan, he added, was to share the final remains of his previous victim with his next one before proceeding to the killing. ( He can't be all bad as he's willing to share)


    Prosecutors insist Meiwes is guilty of murder for taking advantage of his victim's apparent death wish. If convicted, he faces life in prison. Defence lawyers argue that he is guilty only of "killing on demand", which is punishable by up to five years in jail.


    Too bad he couldn't share a cell and meals with Jeffry Dommlier.
