All the Ways That IQ Is Relevant to Society

Intelligent Mouse: By “relevant for society” i meant relevant for economics. IQ can matter for many reasons, like for example just being interested in any form of scientific rigor in understand behavior could make it relevant to an individual as the person would seek for all (or at least most) alternatives in models.
But lets investigate some of the potencial usage of intelligence meassurments and see how IQ tests meassure up.
Measuring potential school performance:
Some small amount of years in school will already give the teachers or parents ample information about their prospects, but also traits that make IQ more productive in synthesis:
https://books.google.se/books?id=SCyEAgAAQBAJ&pg=PA117&lpg=PA117&dq=Layzer+(1973:+238)&source=bl&ots=9Rf9sy0Jd6&sig=WjWMXZsLTGLGy7SS7JSZQ9RLmNE&hl=sv&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjl0q7t78fdAhUQpIsKHXb7AFsQ6AEwAXoECAkQAQ#v=onepage&q=Layzer%20(1973%3A%20238)&f=false
Job performance:
Well, IQ correlates around 0.3 with job performance, but the measurement is subjective so it might capture some things that correlate with social-class and therefore IQ.
Eugenics:
Pleitropy and polygenic structures makes eugenics by swapping SNPs impractical. Breeding programs can only do so much without further molecular biology knowledge. Twin studies seem kinda ridiculous:
Twin Studies, Adoption Studies, and Fallacious Reasoning
And i also agree with:
Behavior Genetics and the Fallacy of Nature vs Nurture
and (which is what GWAS interested behavioral geneticists like Steven Hsu agree on):
Height and IQ Genes
making eugenics very hard. If we already knew the mechanisms behind
Testing mental health:
This is actually the best use of IQ, as decreasing IQ is indicative of loss in brain stuff.
Criterion validity and correlation:
I also think that IQ´s criterion validity lies on shaky grounds when its founded on correlations that are only tested in narrow environments, essentially just creating the same correlation again and again without testing the methodological validity by testing the correlation appropriately. to test correlation appropriately would find anomalies in the pure environmentalist approach (or any level of conviction to environmental explanations) or finding causal IQ relationships (which Environmentalists have done).
I’m not really an IQ denier though, i think there probably is an range of IQ that any given person can inhabit, but the fact of individuals sticking around the mean makes it hard to know who could be where, especially in such large and genetically similar groups like economic classes and races. Some people are obviously extreme, but as previously stated, we don’t need IQ tests to know that.
And whats to say that smart people have high IQ? IQ is contingent on G, but all of my criticisms on IQ are pretty much equally (for better or worse) valid against G.
I see no use in IQ if not for future developments. Its an unfinished project at best.

 
I do not think that people realize what they are criticizing when they attack IQ. For IQ is simply the best measure we have for measuring intelligence in human beings. No better test has ever been devised. So when you criticize IQ as a concept, you are actually criticizing human intelligence itself. Do you IQ critics who say IQ is not that important really want to say that human intelligence is not important for human beings? Because that is exactly what you are saying.
You realize IQ correlates very well with all sorts of things, right?
Percentage of country that are college grads. % of college grads rises with rising IQ.
Grades in college, SAT. Good correlation between college grades, SAT scores and IQ.
Wealth of society. As IQ rises, societies tend to become more wealthy. As IQ falls to a low level, you can end up with extreme poverty, a lot of crime and chaos, rampant disease, and sometimes even a failed state.
State of the infrastructure of society. Infrastructure of society improves as IQ rises. People and society are more likely to maintain things. When IQ falls to a low level, people often do not know how to fix broken infrastructure and there is a tendency to jerry rig or do temporary quick and dirty fixes to problems that last for a bit but then fail again.
Civilizational level of society. As IQ rises, societies appear more civilized. As it drops to a low level, countries can appear downright barbarous.
Crime rate of society: As IQ rises, the nation’s crime rate falls.
Whether or not you will go to jail or prison and how long: As IQ falls,  you are more likely to be imprisoned and for longer.
Whether you will go on welfare programs. As IQ falls, welfare use increases.
Whether you will get an advanced degree. As IQ rises, advanced degrees become more common.
Income (up to a certain level). Income rises in tandem with IQ up to 125-130, after which it falls
Accident rate. As IQ falls, people get into many more accidents, some fatal. Includes car crashes, recreational accidents, accidents at home, etc.
Hospitalization rates. As IQ rises, people are hospitalized less often.
Rates of alcoholism and serious drug abuse. As IQ rises, rates of drug and alcohol abuse fall.
The environment you create for your children. As IQ rises, parents create better environments for their children.
Stability for chaotic nature of your surroundings. Even if you look at it on a neighborhood level, as IQ rises, the neighborhood becomes calmer, sometimes nearly to the point of being boring. Yet only three miles away, a large group of apartment complexes housing many low wage workers has a lot of noise, a general chaotic atmosphere, frequent police calls, a lot of yelling and screaming coming from homes, more frequent and more chaotic parties, more violence, more residential crime, and more drug and alcohol abuse.
Domestic violence rates. Domestic violence falls precipitously as IQ rises. Men at the highest IQ levels seldom beat their wives. As IQ falls down to a low level, domestic violence becomes commonplace to the point where most men are beating their wives.

Excellent News! Bigfoot Hoaxer Killed!

Here.
Good! Thank God! I am generally not happy to see people die, but I have so much hatred in me for these scum that I practically won’t be happy until we are knocking off about one hoaxer a day. I’m surprised one of them hasn’t been shot yet, and I fully expect one of these clowns to get shot sooner rather than later. When that happens, I definitely hope the hoaxer dies and the hunter gets off scot free. Sometimes deaths are the only thing that puts a stop to dangerous nonsense.
This is both God and Darwin here, working in tandem. Oh, the glorious ways of the Universal Spirit!
Moar dead hoaxers! Moar! Moar! Moar!

Many New Sick and Evil Videos and Photos at the Video Site

One cheer for sick! Two cheers for evil! Three cheers for sick and evil! Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray! Sick sick and evil! Sick sick and evil! Sick sick and evil!
Yay! Gather round, boys and girls from 8 to 88, we have have lots of great new twisted videos and pics available on the video site.
Man Swallows His Own Face: The first is a photo of a man in China who appears to be swallowing his own face! This is known as “girning.” I’m not quite sure why some folks can girn and others cannot, but it sure is weird.
Leanne Holland Death Photos: These are photos that were obtained by a website called Viral Death showing the crime scene photos of a young girl named Leanne Holland who was brutally raped and murdered in Australia. A man who was staying with the family was arrested and convicted of the crime, served a number of years in prison, but was then released due to lack of evidence. It appears that he is innocent after all, and the real killer was a known predator who lived a few miles away. The photos don’t show nudity, so there is no child porn. Their release caused quite an outrage in Australia.
Kurdish Teenager Stoned to Death in Iraq: The famous case of the Yezidi girl Doa Khalil Aswad, stoned to death in a crowd of 10,000 men in a village near Mosul. This post has already been published to this site.
Car 1, Motorcycle 0: Shows the aftermath of a car-motorcycle crash somewhere in China, followed by photos of the victim, apparently a prominent politician, meeting with his constituents. By the way, the car won.
Black Man with Split Face: This poor Black guy has had his face nearly split in two but is somehow still alive. Photo. Some say this is fake, but it appears to be genuine.
The Man With No Face: A very strange set of photos of a man who suffered a horrible injury that resulted in the loss of most of his face, including his eyes and nose. As you don’t need these organs, he’s still alive. The surgeon then amazingly constructs an artificial face for the guy with fake eyes and nose and somehow sticks it onto his real face with metal pinnings. Incredible set of heartbreaking photos, but I don’t know the details of the case.
Drunk Girl Knocked Out by Dive: A drunken girl dives off a high cliff into the Colorado River and is knocked unconscious due to the height of the dive. Guys jump in and rescue her.
Dive Gone Wrong in Oregon: Similar video, in this one, another young girl dives off a 90 foot cliff into Lake Oswego in Oregon, which was a totally insane thing to do. She too is knocked out and rescued by guys. It’s amazing she did not die. She was in bad shape for two days but came out of it ok.
Three Men Electrocuted in Iran: This video is amazing, Good Samaritanism gone wrong. An idiot is stuck way up on a high tension pole and is getting shocked. A large crowd has gathered and is screaming. One guy climbs up to rescue him, but he can’t get him down. He starts getting shocked too. Towards the end, a third guy climbs up the pole very fast and grabs the other two guys. Quickly the whole pole blows up in a huge explosion as the guys go flying and the crowd goes nuts. Details not known.
Tire Blows Up under Russian Man: A very strange video. Three young Russian men are drunk in a tire shop. Two guys put an air bag under a tire, cover it with a towel and then encourage a third guy to sit on the tire. The victim apparently knows what is going on and does so willingly. After a short wait, the air bag blows and the guy goes flying in the air. Lots of drunken laughs all around, but this guy could have gotten seriously hurt in this incident.
Chicken with Its Head Cut Off: Laughing rednecks grab a chicken and chop off its head. The headless body runs around a bit, and the other chickens freak out and attack the ghoul chicken. The guys laugh their heads off.
Lunatic Dives into a Burning Car: This is one of the creepier videos I have seen. Guys are filming a burning car by the side of the road somewhere in the US, possibly in the forested northern US. A crowd has gathered to watch the car burn. A fire engine pulls up. Then a guy in his late 20’s suddenly breaks from the crowd towards the car and dives into the burning vehicle. It’s hard to see, but you can see it if you slow the video down and pause it. He has a weird and disturbing expression on his face.
Gang of Teens Attack Elderly Man in Cleveland: A gang of young Black teens is in front of the home of a man in his 70’s. The man and his friend, a man in his 50’s, confront the teens and tell them to get out. Then the two men, both White, drive to a nearby liquor store, apparently to call cops. The gang follows them there and beats both men. The man in his 70’s was beaten badly. The teens run away.
Man Stabbed to Death in New York: It is 3 AM on a street in a bad part of New York City. Video is taken by a security camera. A young woman walks by, and a thug jumps out and tries to rob her. A man runs up to the thug to try to prevent the crime and the thug stabs him with a knife. The guy staggers away and falls down on the sidewalk. For about an hour afterward, people come and go and no one tries to help him. Firemen come after a bit, but he’s already dead.
Crazy Russian Jumps from Building to Building: Amazing video of a young Russian guy engaging in parkour jumping in Russia, where they jump from the roof of one apartment complex to another roof below. Jump may well be 50-75 feet, broken only by a mat below. Very risky sport.
Insane Bungee Jumping off a Waterfall: Young people line up to bungee jump off a waterfall. It’s a long ways down! Footage possibly shot in India. Amazing video.
Idiot Jumps Off Building and Walks Away: A very mysterious video taken off a Danish video site. A young man or teenager is on the roof of a tall building, several stories high. He leaps off the building and lands flat on the ground below, stomach first. There is blood coming from his head. He picks himself up and there is blood dripping off his head. He walks towards the camera and the video ends. I don’t see how this guy survived this fall to walk away, but the production is way too cheap for it to be faked. This video doesn’t really make sense.
Man Commits Suicide at Hoover Dam: Amazing video. Guys are videotaping the face of Hoover Dam and suddenly an idiot jumps off the edge and tumbles down the front, killing himself. The top of his skull appears to come off as he tumbles down the concrete.
Cow Loses Face in Train Crash: There has been a train crash in India, and a cow has been seriously hurt. Most of its face has been torn off, but somehow it is still alive and standing there like nothing is wrong. Scene shifts to the side of the train where people are laying flowers by wreaths.
Girl Throws Live Puppies into River: This is the famous video that was discussed quite a bit on this blog. Video recently went wildly viral. A wild dog in Bosnia gave birth to puppies in the backyard of a home. The dog was very sick. Grandmother found the puppies and feared they were as sick as the mother. She put the puppies in a bucket and gave them to a teenage girl, telling her to throw the puppies in the river and kill them. Video shows girl doing just that. The video resulted in a hunt for the girl. Bosnian authorities tracked her down, but did nothing to her due to her age.
Man Commits Suicide in a Police Station: Famous video of an illegal alien who shot a cop and was then arrested in San Bernardino, California. For some reason, he was never searched. Video shows the man in the interrogation room. Detective leaves to go get some coffee. Criminal reaches into his pocket, pulls out a huge gun and shoots himself in the head, killing himself.
Chinese Fishing Boat Collides with a Japanese Coast Guard Vessel: This was previously published on this site.
Tarzan Swings into a River and Crashes: Two young American guys have fashioned some sort of a rope from a bank out to a river. The distance from launch site to river is about 50 feet or so. One guy goes to the launch site and launches towards the river, then crashes hard onto the bank instead. Looks like he got hurt.
Horrible Injuries and Infections: Series of photos of some very nasty injuries and infections. Everyone survived and is doing ok though.
Brazilian Man with Infected Shoulder from Shooting Steroids: A gruesome operating room video of a Brazilian guy with a massively swollen shoulder from an infection acquired by shooting steroids with a dirty needle. They endless drain the horrible pus from the wound. Really gross.
Farmer Hay Bales Himself: Crazy video. Farmer tears off his clothes and jumps in his hay baler. His friend turns it on. The guy gets packed into a bale of hay and ends up being shot out the chute at the end. He stands up and its a human hay bale with arms and legs sticking out. Really ridiculous.
Bum Eats Rats: Weird video of a bum in Brazil. He reaches down, picks up either rats or mice one by one, puts them in his mouth and munches them down while smiling. He pauses a couple of times to drink some water.
Man with a Shovel Stuck in His Head: Crazy video shot in Brazil. A gang of young men in a favela were roaming around robbing people in their houses. At some point, a posse of angry residents caught up with them and attacked them. One guy was shot several times and someone took a shovel and hit him in the head with it so hard that it stuck in his head. Video shows the crook writhing on the ground, shot by bullets with a shovel stuck in his head. Disturbing.
Guy Has Tongue Splitting Operation: This shows the operation to give you one of those body mod forked tongue things we showed in a gif a while back. File under Don’t try this at home. The incision is made and his mouth is full of blood. Afterward, shows the guy smiling with his new weirdo forked tongue. Really gross video with tons of blood.
Budd Dwyer Suicide Video: The very famous live recorded suicide of Budd Dwyer, former Treasurer of Pennsylvania, recorded before a crowd of reporters taping the whole thing. Detailed here.
Serbian Dogcatcher Chokes a Dog: Previously described on this site.
Foolish Dancer Creamed by Ice Cream Truck: Previously posted on this site.
Weightlifter Tries to Lift Half-ton Barbell, Nearly Dies: Previously posted on this site.
Skateboarder Has Serious Accident and Hurts His Balls: A young boy, maybe around 13 or so, is skateboarding with some other boys. He goes off a staircase with 11 stairs on it and crashes at the bottom. He jumps up and starts screaming that he’s hurt his balls.
Eat My Engine Block!: Previously posted on this site.
Al Jazeera Releases Photos of Sri Lankan Genocide: Previously described on this site.
Bullfighter Gored in Throat by a Bull: Previously posted on this site.
Swedish Man Commits Suicide Live on the Internet: In October 2010, a young Swedish man with Aspergers killed himself live on the Internet while a large group of people watched helpless to do anything about it. Video shows time lapse photography of the man setting up a rope to the ceiling, then fastening his neck to it until he slowly hangs. At the end, the firemen bust down the door and try to rescue him, but he’s gone. Really disturbing.
Black Female Fried Chicken Eating and 40 Oz Drinking Contest: Previously posted on this site.
Ukraine Air Show Disaster 2002: A truly disturbing video of a terrible accident at an air show in the Ukraine in 2002 that killed 92 people when the plane crashed into the crowd. You see the plane doing its maneuvers, then the camera goes nuts as the plane crashes to the ground. The cameraman runs to the scene of the crash, filming all the way. He comes upon injured people, dead people, parts of dead bodies, people missing limbs, people running everywhere to get away or try to help and cops and military personnel everywhere. Curiously, no one tries to stop him filming. Really disturbing stuff.

Gore-y Photo

Spanish matador Julio Aparicio gored and nearly killed by a bull in a recent bullfight in Spain.

See that thing in his mouth, like he’s trying to swallow a thick beef jerky stick all at once? Believe it or not, that’s the bull’s horn. The bull’s horn went into his tongue and straight out of his mouth. Damn, nasty stuff.

This incident got a lot of play recently. The matador, Julio Aparicio, slipped, and that’s where he messed up. I hate these bullfights, so I should probably root for the bull in this case, but I did feel sorry for the guy. He survived the attack, but he was in extremely bad shape in the hospital right after the attack. He was back in the hospital on June 29, 2010 from an infection following surgery to reconstruct his throat, mouth and palate. His condition was listed as grave but stable. I don’t have any further updates on his condition.

This guy’s lucky to be alive.

Idiot Tries to Lift Half-Ton Barbel, Nearly Dies

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c99fKwte_-4&feature=player_embedded]

This video is supposed to be gross, sick and horrible, but I was laughing the whole time.

Some meathead fool tries to lift a 1000 pound barbel. I guess he sort of succeeds, I mean he’s able to hold it. Then it crushes him down towards the floor and he pukes all over the head judge (LOL!). Then they help him put him back on the bar. After that he almost dies. I mean he passes out (Lulz!).

Unfortunately, he doesn’t die. I was really hoping this guy would die, because I like to see idiots get killed. Serves em right! I mean, if you do that, you’re dumber than a housepet. A housepet is generally terrified of anything that has like a 2% chance in Hell of killing them. Only humans defy fate like this.

Sadly, he doesn’t die, he just passes out. When he finally comes to, they help him to his feet. Then all the other meatheads give him a big cheer, too bad not a Bronx one. What they are cheering for I have no idea. For puking halfway across a room and aiming right at the ump’s face? That took balls, admit it. For passing out on the floor in front of chicks? I hope not. For not dying even though he deserves to? I guess.

Let me tell you something, Logan Lacy. If I were God, I would have killed you just for even thinking about tempting me with this stunt!

Hang on a sec. I have God on the phone:

“Do not fuck with me, Logan Lacy, you meathead punk! I kill 10,000’s of people every day who don’t even deserve it. Don’t mock me, buddy! Don’t even think about it! You thought this was nasty? Hell, I was being nice! You don’t even want to deal with me when I’m in a bad mood, buddy!”

Lots of New Sick and Evil Videos Up on the Old Site

We have pretty much removed the sicko flicks from here because WordPress doesn’t want them, but we are continuing to post them over at the old site.

Traffic really plunged there. At the peak, it was up to 68,000 hits/day. Now it’s down to 3,500/day over there and 4,000/day here, for a combined total of 7,500/day for both sites. Traffic collapsed when the South Korean government banned my website! Everyone in South Korea has to go through some government server to get on the Net, so the government is able to ban sites pretty easily.

Anyway, for your twisted freaks on here:

Eating a Cooked Fish While Alive: The sickos in China think it’s cool to keep a fish alive until you cook it, then cook it in some weird way so it’s still alive, then consume the poor thing while it’s still alive! To be eaten alive! Good God, what a horrible punishment.

You know, the tribes of the SE US, from around Louisiana and the coast of Texas such as the extinct Karankawa, used to do this, . They would capture enemy warriors, tie them to a pole, then surround them with braves who would charge up to the poor sod with knives and slice off bits of his flesh, then eat them in front of him, just to freak him out even more. I assume at some point, they’ve eaten so much of the poor guy that he expires, but it’s sure a Helluva way to go. Gimme a heart attack any day. Hell, gimme cancer. Just not that.

Nick Berg Beheading Video: The original Iraqi Al Qaeda beheading video, released in 2003, with the poor, innocent but foolish Nick Berg meeting his end. The first time I watched this, I was shaking for hours afterward, and I was seriously freaked for a week or two. I watched it again and it was a little better, but not much. I’ve never watched it again – twice was enough! But it’s a classic as far as this shit goes. Includes a thorough writeup on the whole sad story behind the crime.

Man Electrocuted on Train in India: At a crowded train station in India, some idiot somehow finds himself on top of a train. He tries to get down several times, and people reach up to try to help him. Then he walks away and starts strolling down the roof of the train. Like a dumbass, at one point, he reaches up and touches a live electric wire. He is instantly electrocuted and killed. His body quickly catches fire, and he’s gone in a ball of flames in an instant. Electricity is a powerful motherfucker all right. I didn’t feel much sympathy while watching this because the guy’s such an idiot.

12 Year Old Pakistani Boy Beheads a Man: This has got to be about as evil is it gets. The Taliban bastards in North Waziristan capture a US spy, probably an ISI agent in the area, tie him up, and give the knife to a young kid so he can kill him. There are some other kids watching and holding the poor guy down, and maybe some girls watching too. It’s hard to tell. He takes forever to saw the guy’s head off, and reminds you of a butcher carving up an animal carcass. This is child abuse in its worst form. Don’t do this to kids.

Woman Electrocuted in China: Another idiot video. A middle aged woman, apparently mentally disturbed, climbs a utility pole in the middle of some seriously crowded Chinese city and won’t come down. The sheer mass of humanity below is breathtaking in itself. Rescuers are trying to get to her, but she’s just up there crying and won’t come down on the ladders.

There are power lines near her, and a few times, like a dumbass, she reaches up and grabs them, and of course gets electrocuted each time. But for some reason, possibly poor grounding, she gets off pretty easy. I’m told that she survived the ordeal with minimal injuries.

Worst Ankle Twist Ever: A soccer game is being performed, possibly somewhere in the Mediterranean or in the Southern Cone of South America – the players look like Med Whites of some sort. Anyway, soon some poor guy sustains a horrible injury to his ankle. People rush out, put him on a stretcher, and as he is being carried off, you see, incredibly, that his ankle appears to be twisted a full 90 degrees! I don’t know how that’s possible, or if there’s any way to fix it.

Arab Woman Stabs Guard at Israeli Checkpoint: A 21 year old Palestinian woman is getting ready to be searched before going through the Kalandia Checkpoint in Jerusalem. I do not understand the layout of this checkpoint, why it’s necessary, or where it goes to or from. Anyhow, the guards turn away from her, she reaches into her belt, pulls out a huge knife, rushes one of the male Israeli guards, and stabs him! Damn! He goes down, and other guards quickly pile on her and disarm her. The guard sustained minor injuries in the attack and survived.

Convicted Killer Tries to Grab Cop’s Gun in Court: A Black guy is on trial for the murder of his White wife and their son. Her family is in court. At some point, he rushes the bailiff and tries to grab his gun. Other cops, attorneys, all sorts of people, pile on the guy and handcuff him. Then they lead him out of court while the family of the dead woman he killed scream at him.

John Graziano Head Wound: Hulk Hogan’s son, age 17, borrows his Dad’s car and goes for a ride with his friend, Graziano. Possibly he’s drunk. At some point, he totals the car and nearly kills Graziano. Hogan’s son survives. The video shows this poor guy, Graziano, in the hospital afterwards. He seems to have lost a good part of the front of his forehead, that is, his brain! Somehow he’s still alive, but he’s a total vegetable. A lot of people were mad at the Hogans about this incident, and it’s apparently the source of a major lawsuit now. Really disturbing.

Photo of James Vance, Failed Shotgun Suicide: One of the really bad things about trying to kill yourself is that you might fail and actually survive afterward, but be so fucked up you wish you were dead. This is what happened to James Vance, a teenage boy from the US who was depressed and using drugs when he went to a playground and shot himself in the head. That night, he had been using drugs and listening to Judas Priest.

The case resulted in a lawsuit against the band for supposedly making this idiot try to kill himself, but the suit failed. There is a photo of Vance, plus a video interview with him. Even after much reconstructive surgery, he has one of the most fucked up faces on Earth. A few years after, he could not take it anymore, got some pills, and killed himself for good. I don’t blame him; I would have done the same if I looked like that.

Idiot Jumps Off Roof and Breaks His Leg: Stupid American teenagers are engaging in some weird sport called roof jumping, where you jump off a roof onto the lawn below. Something goes wrong, the kid lands wrong, and he breaks his leg. You can actually hear the bone snap on the video. Stupidity can be painful!

Nighttime Mobs Attack Cars in Oakland: This is the latest fad in some US Black ghettos. Crowds of young people gather on major street late at night, around 10 or 11 PM, on a weekend nite. Then they start attacking random cars as they drive by. Sometimes they try to pull the doors open to rob or assault drivers. Drivers fight back, hit them, try to run them over, etc. A good time is had by all, or many, or at least the attackers.

Mostly young Oakland Blacks here, but strangely, there are some young White girls there hanging out with the Blacks and attacking cars themselves.

If these fuckers did that to my car, I might try to hit them with my vehicle! I’ve already done so in a similar situation, and the dude went flying after I nailed him with my accelerating car! Don’t ever try this with me, punks!

Man Assaulted in New York Deli: A older White guy is ordering a meal in a New York deli with some young Black guy standing next him. Suddenly, at one point, the Black turns around and cold cocks the White guy, knocking him to the floor! Then he runs out of the building. No further info on where or why this happened, details on the crime, fate of the victim or results of the investigation.

Also lots of older stuff in foreign languages, but most of you won’t be interested in that.

Have fun, sickos!

아프리카에서 사자에게 잡아먹힌 남자

[wpvideo eVYcHmc7]

I am looking for translators to translate this post into Spanish and German. Email me if you are interested.

This is a Korean translation of the Man Gets Eaten By Lion in Africa post. The translator is 넝근넝근. He does fantastic work.

대부분의 사람들은 이 비디오가 가짜라고 주장한다, 사실 그 주장은 사실이다.

이 비디오가 1970년대 중반 아프리카 사파리에서 촬영된 유명한 비디오이며 저 관광객은 런던에서 온것 처럼 보인다. 또 이 비디오가 법정의 증거로서 보험회사가 저 남자의 생명보험을 거부할 증거로 이 비디오자료를 사용하곤 했으며 보험회사는 저 남자가 “자기 무덤 판 꼴” 이라며 보험료 지불을 거부하겠다라고 주장한 증거자료가 바로 이 비디오라는 이야기이다.

사실, 이 비디오와 저 이야기는 사실이 아니다. 저 사고가 70년대 후반 앙골라의 Wallasee National Park에서 일어났다고 한다. 저런 장소는 앙골라다 아프리카 어디에도 없다.

“공격의 희생자”는 Pit Dernitz로 이 비디오에 관한 IMDB에 이름이 나와있다. 그는 유명한 사자 조련사이다.

이 영상은 Ultime Grida Dalla Savana라는 이런 비슷한 종류의 영상물이 포함된 이탈리아 몬도 영화의 한장면이다.

결국 이 영상은 어떤 법정 어디에도 등장하지 않았다.

Korean Translation of One Cop No Legs Is Up

We have another Korean translation up, this time of the One Cop No Legs video, which is one strange video all right. Tons of Koreans are coming in to look at these weird videos of mine, so we are commissioning some translations for them.

It’s been quite a pleasure to work with young Koreans. Without insulting my White translators, the Koreans are simply better on average. First of all, they are young Koreans of both sexes and they are doing great work. Young Whites can sometimes do good work, but they often take awhile when they don’t flake out altogether. Of course, I don’t pay because there’s no funds to pay anyone, frankly. We all pretty much volunteer here at this website.

Young Whites are very oriented towards money are not really interested in working for free. On the other hand, a lot of them might as well volunteer because a lot of these guys are not doing much anyway. I get all sorts of young White guys saying they are going to work with me, and then they flake out. It’s gotten to be a cliche.

Also, young Whites tend to be quite independent-minded when they work for you. This is good, because it probably relates to the independent, creative and innovate potential of our people, but as a boss, it’s not so great. We pretty much want yes-men.

Which the Koreans are in spades! Koreans are very eager to please, and so nice and bend over to backwards to serve you boss that’s it almost seems naive. There’s quite an absence of difficult attitudes, rebellion and whatnot. On the other hand, I guess the downside is the stereotypical conformism of the Northeast Asian. I will say though that this conformism has been derided too much.

Young Koreans have been a delight to deal with. Some of them are willing to volunteer simply to improve their English, others to promote their “honorable” language. There was something heartwarming about a people that sees their language as so honorable that they want to volunteer to make it available to their fellow citizens.

I must say though that I wonder if NE Asians don’t quite rebel enough. I mean, cooperative employees are wonderful for a boss, but it is impossible to not rebel enough. In White society we have the corollary of the very straight, nerdy White guy who refused to rebel against his parents in any way, and didn’t even try to develop an independent mind or life.

This doesn’t really seem to be healthy. Adolescent rebellion is at least healthy in the sense that it signals a desire for independence and the creation of one’s own ego and value set, quite possibly a different one than your folks. This step is important in forging an independent minded adult from a child.

On the topic of ethnocentrism, which we are dealing with in the comments, it’s clear to be that all of the NE Asians are quite ethnocentric. They pretty much all feel they are better than anyone else, but I don’t mind, and I think they have a right to feel that way. At the same time, they can be very friendly, especially to Whites, since they supposedly respect us as a race.

It’s true that NE Asians don’t respect Blacks too much, and Blacks have a hard time in these countries. I don’t know what to say about that…when a Japanese man sees the stereotypical ghetto Black man who has had 7 kids by 7 different women and refuses to support any of them, he is offended on a very deep and intense cultural level.

In these societies, behavior like this is unheard of. That Black man is acting like a dog! To the NE Asian, that is, and they tend to have a pretty low opinion of dogs. Hell, that’s what a male dog does. He runs around and knocks up as many female bitches as he can, and of course he refuses to support or help raise any of the puppies. To the NE Asian mind, for a human to act like a dog is so low it’s almost indescribably bad.

The Korean language is interesting, and we touched on the Hangul alphabet the other day. Google’s Korean-English, English-Korean translator is basically useless. The text comes out hopelessly garbled, and it’s more or less useless. Probably the two languages are so hugely different that translation is a monumental task.

I suspect that Korean may have relatively free work order, but I’m not certain. In free word order languages, you can mix up the words in a sentence to some extent without changing the meaning of the sentence. English has pretty strict word order, and mixing it up just tends to produce gibberish. I don’t have the faintest idea how you create a software translator for a relatively free order language. It’s mind boggling.

It also seems to be an agglutinative language, though I’m not sure about that either. In an agglutinative language, you can stick all these morphemes onto each other and end up creating words that are as long as sentences,, just morphemes glommed onto each other into one gigantic word.

In Eskimo, I suppose you can have words something like:

Qanniqpataninajanngittungaqaiguvitniriniaqpitkaakkaangami niriqattaqtuqnaalangmangaarmititnalujungainuktitummik ilisailauqsimajunga.

All one word. I may be exaggerating somewhat, but you get the picture. Anyway, that word might mean something like,

“The guy who showed up last nite was a pretty nice guy and we ate some seal blubber together and then I let him sleep with my wife and then in the morning he got up and left with the first lights of Aurora Borealis.”

Or something like that. You could actually go back into that word and take it all apart and all of those meaning forms would be glommed onto each other in that Mother Of All Sentences.

Anyway, if Korean is aggultinative, it would make sense, because it is suspected to be an Altaic language, related to Turkic, Mongolian and Tungusic. I believe in the Altaic Hypothesis, which is still controversial. Japanese, Korean and possibly Ainu form probably three separate branches of that family.

One of the problems with proving that Korean and Japanese are related, much less that they are part of Altaic, is that there has been the Mother Of All Borrowings between these languages. In particular, probably 70% of Japanese and Korean vocabulary is simply Chinese borrowings. A guy named Roy Miller made a good case for Korean and Japanese being related and a part of Altaic about 60 years ago.

The Nostratic guys (the project is now taken up by Starotsin’s son after the elder Starotsin’s untimely death) seems to have come up with some pretty good sound correspondences between Japanese, Korean and the rest of Altaic. I’ve seen those tables and it looks pretty good. Historical linguists nowadays demand sound correspondences for proving that languages are related. This means something like, whenever you have:

English “p”, you have say “f” in German and “b” in Danish (I’m making this up).

English  German  Danish
p        f, pf   b

Korean Translation of Dive Fail Is Up At The Old Site

This is my first Korean translation and I am very excited about it!

Right now, the diving video is going insanely viral over in South Korea and the site is getting bombarded with traffic. We had 34,000 visitors to both sites yesterday. That’s way more than any previous day. The vast majority of them were coming from Korea.

Korea is another extremely wired nation, one of the most wired, if not the most wired, on Earth. They have the fastest broadband speeds for the lowest prices per Kb. Once again, this is because the failed state that needs to get the Hell out of our lives and off our backs is heavily involved in Korean broadband. Funny how all the nations that are the most and best wired have heavy state involvement in broadband.

Hopefully, we are going to be having a lot more Korean translations lately. I’ve also found that Koreans are some of my finest translators, with superb work skills, highly responsible and agreeable and do great work work very quickly with few complaints. It’s no wonder their NE Asian economies do so well.

The working title so far is:

다이빙 사고 두 얼굴을 나눠 함께

I haven’t the faintest idea what that chicken scratch means, but that’s the title.

Actually, the Korean alphabet known as Hangul , though we make fun of it, is said to be one of the most perfect alphabets ever made by man. It’s actually quite hard to make a good alphabet, and the English alphabet really sucks. Why is knight pronounced “nite?” It’s senseless and mad.

Actually, most alphabets in use by humans suffer from various deficiencies, but of all of these orthographies, Hangul is said to come to the closest to perfection. Part of its mastery is said to be its elegance and ingeniousness, yet being paradoxically simple and utilitarian.

Serbo-Croatian Translation of the Dive Fail Post Is Up

My first Serbo-Croatian translation has been done, and it was a trip to work with this language. This language is very different, and it’s not much like English at all.

The translation is of the famous Dive Fail post and it’s titled Ronilačkih Nezgoda Sa Licem Podijeljen U Dva. It’s not really finished, but it will suffice for now. I am looking for someone to finish it for me if they wish. The translation is in the Latin Serbo-Croatian alphabet, not the Cyrillic one. I’m not up on the dynamics of these two alphabets in the region in terms of which one is preferred or used more. I assume most speakers of the language can read both alphabets.

Finnish Translation of Face Split Diving Accident Video Is Up

The Finnish translation of the Face Split Diving Accident Video post is up on the Blogger site. It’s titled Sukellusonnettomuus. The word “Sukellusonnettomuus” means “Diving accident”. Diving = sukellus. Accident = onnettomuus.

I am really excited about this. It’s my first Finnish translation ever. I actually get a very large number of visits from Finland, which is amazing for such a small country, but Finland is one of the most wired places on Earth. It’s also wealthy and has some of the fastest broadband speeds. That’s all due to their horrible failed socialism, of course.

One of the fun things about these sites is that I get to work for foreign languages a lot as a result of the translations. I don’t just cut and paste translations up there. Unfortunately, they often need a fair amount of work. I can usually work the languages pretty well, but Finnish was really a mess. I could barely make heads or tails out of that language. That’s one Heck of a crazy language.

On another matter, in posts about how to drive traffic to your website, you seldom hear about the use of translations. I translate high-traffic posts when I can get translators, and in some cases, it has worked out very well. It’s hard to find people to do it for free, but there are people out there who like to do stuff like this for fun. I actually get quite a bit of traffic out of translations, especially Spanish, French and to a lesser extent Portuguese.

Portuguese Translation of Face Split Diving Accident Video Is Up

Most Fucked Up Videos on the Internet

Other than the ones we used to host here (And who know, maybe you can still find them here?) there are lots of really messed up videos on the Net these days. Apparently they are all legal. Not talking about the child porn stuff. Of course that’s messed up, and sure it’s illegal. Sorry, but I can’t give you any links to that stuff. Go ask Pedobear and Google and maybe you will get lucky.
There’s been a big debate lately over crush videos, including an extensive Supreme Court debate. These are some really messed up videos of small animals getting killed by women wearing high heels. The women talk like dominatrixes while they crush the animals with their high heels. I’m not sure what animals are killed, but the most notorious ones feature kittens and I guess puppies.
I saw part of one featuring an apparent Japanese women crushing to death a kitten with her high heels. I saw the start of it and then turned it off. I don’t want to see a kitten getting crushed. The Japanese woman that was marketing those was reportedly hunted down and beaten to death by an animal rights group, but that may just be an urban legend. Anyway, I hope she did get crushed to death by some humans. Plus, I hope the videotaped it so we can put it up on the Net and watch this sick bitch getting stomped to death.
So, crush videos are messed up. They are made for males, males who are sexually twisted. There are a bunch of these idiots out there, guys who get off on crush videos. Curiously, most of them identify with the animals getting crushed, and they have a fantasy about getting crushed by a dominatrix. I kinda feel sorry for these guys, because I have counseled some males who were stuck sexually in weird fetishes, and they could not seem to get outside of them.
Anyway, I think videos of bitches crushing kittens and puppies to death with high heels should be banned. That’s just messed up. If she’s already in prison, I guess we can release the video as evidence of a crime (and therefore documenting reality), but otherwise, the idea that people are killing animals for profit and kicks makes me ill. Ban it the same way we ban child porn.
Snuff videos are illegal, even though they don’t even exist. What about videos of real folks getting killed. No one seems to know, but it seems that they are legal. It’s often a crime, and the victim is dead anyway. If it’s a crime, it ought to be legal under Documenting Reality Theory (that’s a legal theory I just made up). It’s evidence of a crime, and LE needs to get the perpetrators. If they’ve already been dealt with, then it’s just history, and ought to be legal.
There is a question of whether death videos cause copycat killings. I don’t have the faintest idea and a part of me doesn’t care. I’m sure sociopaths can’t get enough horror films.
Concerning videos not featured on this site, we have Hatchet Versus Genitals, which I have not seen. I guess it is some idiot chopping his dick off. There is a video out called BME Pain Olympics featuring a bunch of idiots mutilating their dicks, chopping them off and whatnot. It’s supposedly fake, but there are apparently real idiots who actually do such things. It’s almost always a guy. I have no idea why a guy would want to commit violence on his dick, much less cut it off. Perhaps commenters can enlighten me.
1 Man 1 Screwdriver is one of the latest shock vids. I never uploaded it since WordPress does not allow porn videos. This moron from Russia sticks a screwdriver in his urethra, and slowly slides it out again. His dick starts bleeding afterward, and there is blood on the screwdriver. I have not seen the video. Guys sticking things in their urethras is pretty common. Arthur Kinsey used to like to do this.
I think it sounds like a pretty hazy thing to do. I’m 51, and my dick is sort of marginal these days anyway, so I see no reason why I should mess around and make it permanently F-4.
Kids in a Sandbox features a guy and a woman naked in bed. She shoves a dildo in the guy’s urethra. It somehow goes into his urethra. She pulls it out, and his dick looks like it is split in half. I don’t understand how morons do this to their dicks without suffering permanent damage. The guy and the woman are laughing and carrying on the whole time the guy’s dick is getting mangled.
1 Guy 1 Jar is another recent sensation, done by the same Russian moron who shoved the screwdriver up his dick. This idiot, about 40 years old, married, with kids, working at a good job, likes to shove huge things up his ass, even though he is straight. It’s true that guys that stick stuff up their asses are not necessarily queer. Usually they are, but not always.
Anyway, this idiot likes to stick jars up his ass for some dumb reason. In 1 Guy 1 Jar he sticks a jar up his ass. After a while you hearing a cracking sound. He stand up and starts pulling shards of glass out his ass, and blood starts coming out of his ass onto the floor. Soon we have a nice little pool of blood on the floor filled with glass shards. I have not seen the video, but I saw a few stills of it. The guys claims he got almost all the glass out, and he is still sticking jars up his ass. His wife does not know about his habit.
One of the most recent ones is 1 Guy 1 Dolphin. I have not seen it yet. This idiot queer or whatever he is sucks a male dolphin’s cock. How he gets the dolphin to do this, I have no idea. Well this continues until the dolphin cums in his mouth. People are saying that this video is “the end of the Internet.”
The spate of shock videos seems to be egging psychos and morons on to make more and more extreme psycho and idiot videos and upload them onto the Net. There is supposedly a necrophilia video that just came out of some guy having sex with a woman’s corpse and making jokes while he is doing it. I have not seen it and don’t know any details on it.
There are videos out of idiots flashing their cocks at women and girls as they drive by in cars. I have seen a bit of those videos. That’s pretty disturbing behavior all right. We are dealing with a crime here and I don’t know if this crap should be legal or what.
Mr. Hands is famous. Some queer and his twisted queer buddies were into getting fucked by horses. The guy lived in Enumclaw, Washington. In the video, the idiot gets fucked in the ass by a horse. They pull the horse’s cock out at the last minute and the horse ejaculates. Although the idiot apparently did not die in the making of this video, he did apparently die in a later horse-fucking video. The horse’s cock ruptured the idiot’s anus and he died of peritonitis or something in the hospital. I’m actually glad that this moron died.
There are also lots of scat videos, which feature idiots shitting on each other, idiots shitting into other idiots mouths who then eat the shit, idiots smearing shit all over themselves, etc etc. The shitty possibilities are endless. Often the people start vomiting in the course of the video, and of course, in that case, the only logical thing to do is to puke in the other person’s mouth, right?
The most famous of those is 2 Girls 1 Cup, which I have seen. It’s supposedly fake, done with chocolate ice cream, though I don’t see how. 2 Girls 1 Finger is actually way worse, along the same lines. 1 Priest 1 Nun is similar.
I don’t generally watch anymore of those scat videos because if you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all.

This is a French translation of the Face Split Diving Accident Video post by my finest translator of all, Natalie from France.
C’est une des vidéos les plus regardées. Elle est apparue sur le Net aux alentours de la troisième semaine de juillet, elle a commencé à faire un tabac ces dernières semaines. En général elle n’a pas de nom.
Elle est mentionnée en quelque sorte par la description de l’évènement Horrible Diving Accident, Bridge Fail, Worst Diving Accident, Horrific Diving Accident, Awesome Diving Accident, Disgusting Diving Accident, Jump Accident, Cellphone Horrific Diving Accident and Diving Accident, je l’ai nommée Dive Fail faute de mieux.
Il n’y a pas de violence, pas d’agression. C’est seulement la vidéo d’un terrible accident.
Un adolescent plonge depuis la promenade du front de mer à Beyrouth, et glisse juste avant de plonger. La glissade lui fait louper la mer et heurter le bloc de béton en dessous, là où les pêcheurs pêchent. Il touche le béton face la première, puis tombe dans l’océan. En très peu de temps la mer se teint en rouge sang tout autour. Il y a des personnes et des bateaux en train d’essayer de lui porter secours et des jeunes filles qui hurlent.
La scène se déplace ensuite dans l’hôpital où le malheureux est ausculté par une équipe de docteurs et infirmières. Son visage a été coupé en deux parties, verticalement, par le milieu !
Il est encore vivant et conscient, il respire et ses yeux bougent. Il a l’air terrifié. Par deux fois, le docteur prend les côtés de sa figure et les rapproche de façon à recomposer son visage.
Il y a beaucoup de rumeurs disant que cette vidéo est fausse, mais apparemment elle est vraie. Cet accident est arrivé à Beyrouth durant la deuxième semaine de juin 2009. L’adolescent et son ami étaient en train de montrer leur habileté en plongeant de la Manara Promenade, qui se trouve sur le boulevard qui traverse l’Université Américaine de Beyrouth, sur le port de Beyrouth.
C’est arrivé en contrebas de la corniche Manara, plus de douze mètres plus bas. Le jeune et son ami ont effectué plusieurs plongeons, tout allait bien, jusqu’à ce qu’il glisse et que le terrible accident se produise. Cette partie a été enregistrée par un Nokia qui filme de façon assez sombre l’après-midi.
Cette séquence a été filmée par une fille présente, que l’on peut entendre hurler “Oh mon Dieu, mon Dieu, que quelqu’un appelle les secours !” en Arabe.
La deuxième partie de ce clip montre le même enfant à l’hôpital, mais a été filmée avec un téléphone différent, donc elle semble différente. L’équipe médicale parle le Libanais (Arabe). Cette partie de la vidéo a été tournée dans la forte lumière des urgences de l’Hôpital Universitaire Américain, proche du lieu de l’accident. C’est la raison pour la quelle cette partie de la vidéo est beaucoup plus lumineuse.
Certaines personnes disent que ce n’est pas possible qu’une telle vidéo ait pu être tournée dans les urgences d’un hôpital. Quoi qu’il en soit il est très fréquent dans les pays en voie de développement, que les familles et les amis soient présents aux urgences à proximité des patients, pendant que l’équipe médicale s’affaire autours d’eux.
Tout ce que les chirurgiens pouvaient faire était recoudre sa blessure, profonde et sévère. Bien que certains médecins sur le Net aient dit qu’un bon ORL aurait pu réparer cet enfant de façon convenable, ce pauvre gamin n’a pas pu être sauvé. Tout ce qu’ils ont pu faire a été de le maintenir en vie dans une unité de réanimation, durant deux jours, avant qu’il ne meure.
La ville de Beyrouth a essayé de stopper cette pratique en posant des barrières et du fil barbelé aux endroits où la population aime plonger, mais des adolescents et des jeunes hommes âgés d’une vingtaine d’années continuent de plonger depuis la promenade, en prenant beaucoup de risques. Avant cet accident, il y en a eu de nombreux autres, horribles, dans la même zone, tous impliquant des garçon et de jeunes hommes.
Il y a quelque chose de vraiment effrayant dans ces images, que je n’arrive pas à définir.
Depuis l’avertissement non professionnel trilingue au début (Arabe, Français et Anglais, suggérant que nous sommes au Liban), aux cris horribles après l’impact, au rouge sang diffus sur une importante surface de l’océan, autour des 20-30 personnes réunies dans l’eau pour lui porter secours, jusqu’à la scène terrifiante à l’hôpital où l’enfant a le visage coupé en deux.
La respiration effrayante et laborieuse de la victime associée avec le regard d’horreur dans ses yeux sont deux choses qui ne vous quittent plus.
Tout au long de ces images, il y a une musique instrumentale bizarre, moche, difficile à décrire, en fond musical, qui fait croître la sensation de terreur. Pareillement pour la façon brute, saccadée de filmer en amateur avec un téléphone portable.
J’ai été traumatisé durant plusieurs jours après avoir vu cette vidéo, et pourtant j’ai déjà vu pas mal de choses terribles.

This is one of the latest viral videos going around. It actually appeared on the Net around the third week of July, but it’s only started going viral in a huge way around the second week of September. In general, it never has a name. It first appeared on Arabic and Turkish sites, and finally found its way around the Net.
It’s just referred to by some description of the event like, Horrible Diving Accident, Bridge Fail, Worst Diving Accident, Horrific Diving AccidentAwesome Diving Accident, Disgusting Diving Accident, Jump Accident, Cellphone Horrific Diving Accident and Diving Accident. I named it Dive Fail since I could not think of anything better.
There’s really no “violence” in this video. It’s just a video of a horrible accident.
A teenager, a 16 year old boy, dives off the seaside promenade in Beirut and slips before the dive. The slip causes him to miss the ocean and instead hit the concrete slab below where fishermen fish. He hits the concrete face first, then goes into the ocean. In a short while, the ocean for yards around has turned red with blood. There are people and boats in the water trying to help the guy, and girls are screaming all over the place.
The scene then shifts to a hospital where the poor guy is being overseen by a team of doctors and nurses. His face has been split clear in two down the middle vertically!
He is still alive and conscious, he’s still breathing, and his tongue is still moving around. He appears terrified. The doctor a couple of times takes the sides of his face and pushes them together to make a whole face again. The doctor supposedly says, “Where do I begin?” a few times in Arabic.
People are wondering how he could survive such an injury, and the front part of his brain may have been injured, but others are saying that it appears to be intact. At any rate, basic things like breathing are done by the brain stem. The brain stem appears to be intact.
People are also wondering about pain. The brain has no pain receptors. On the other hand, the damage to his face must be very painful.
There are a lot of rumors saying that this video is fake, but apparently it is a real video. We know this because people in Lebanon are reporting it. Some had friends who were at the Promenade that day, others said it was reported in the Lebanese press and others say that they were aware of stories on the street about the video. There is an article in Arabic from the Lebanese press online proving that this event occurred, but it’s in the archives, and looking through the archives costs money.
This event occurred in Beirut in the second week of June 2009. The teenager and his brother were showing off their diving skills by diving off the Manara Promenade (photo), which is right across from the American University on the shore of Beirut’s harbor.
This part of the Promenade is called Al-Rawsha, and it’s long been popular with divers, although officials have always frowned on it. In fact, like the Golden Gate Bridge, it’s also long been popular with suicides and attempted suicides.
It’s a long way off the Manara Promenade to the ocean, over 40 feet. The first part of the video shows his brother making a successful dive. He and his brother had made several jumps before and everything had gone fine, but this time he slips, and disaster unfolds.
This part was shot with a Nokia cellphone which shoots dark in the afternoon. This segment was shot by a girl at the scene who can be heard screaming, “Oh my God! Oh my God! Someone call the Civil Defense!” in Arabic. People are saying that the video is fake because his friends would not shoot him diving, but the girl filming is just some girl who was there filming the divers. Lots of people film them with cellphones when they dive.
This actually is not the original video from Lebanon. In Lebanon, there were two videos, the first one of the diving accident. It’s apparently two different videos spliced together. This one started going around Lebanon later in the day after the accident. The second video reportedly was shot in the hospital and started going around later. In the original Lebanese video, there is no fade out after he hits, for one thing. The original video from Lebanon is not currently available, but we may be able to get it soon.
The second part of the clip is the same kid in the hospital, but was shot with a different cellphone so it looks different. The hospital staff is definitely speaking Lebanese Arabic. This part of the clip was shot in the brightly lit ER of the American University Hospital, which is only ¼ mile away from where the accident took place. That’s why things are so much brighter in this part of the clip.
People are saying that there is no way that such a clip could have been shot in an ER, however, in the Developing World, it is quite common for family, friends, etc. to be present in the ER right next to the patient’s bed as the staff hovers around them.
It’s also not uncommon that they have a cellphone on them and record the goings-on. That would probably be pretty weird in the US, but in the Arab World, no one thinks anything of it.
As you can see in the hospital footage, they have him intubated, which is an excellent idea. However, he is not on a ventilator, nor are there any signs of monitoring equipment such a pulse oximeter. Also they did not put him in C-Spine precautions (C-collar, backboard, strapped down).
The physician is focusing on holding his face together, possibly in order to protect the airway. Critics are saying that the doctor is “playing” with the face, and no doctor would even do that, but I don’t think is playing with it. I think he’s trying to fix it.
Medical personnel in the US were saying the video is fake because apparently he is not receiving proper medical care. Keep in mind that this is Lebanon. He is getting reasonable medical care, but I think it is safe to say he is not receiving the best of medical care.
All the surgeons could do was to stitch up his very deep and severe wounds in his face. Although some clinicians on the Net have said that a good ENT could patch this kid up good, this poor guy could not be saved. But all they were able to do was to keep him alive in the ICU for two hours before he died. Death was reportedly due to internal bleeding.
The city of Beirut has tried to stop such nonsense by putting up railings and barbed wire where people like to dive, but teenage boys and even young men in their 20’s keep on diving off the Promenade in very risky circumstances. Before this accident, there were a number of other horrible diving accidents in this area, all involving teenage boys and young men.
There is a recent post that details a different video that supposedly proves that this video is fake. In the other video, the hospital footage is said to be of a failed 9mm suicide. However, no way can a 9mm do that kind of damage to your face.
Furthermore, in a longer video version of the ER scene, the two doctors are said to be discussing in Lebanese Arabic how he landed “on a rock” when he jumped into the water. This dialogue would not exist in a gun suicide video.
In addition, some are saying that the victim in the failed gun suicide video had a similar injury that differed from this one in certain ways, in particular, this one has a dichotomy of the jaw at the chin and the other did not.
There are claims that instead of a 9mm failed suicide, this is a shotgun failed suicide. However, there are many photos of shotgun suicides on the Web, for instance, at Rotten.com . In general, shotgun failed suicides do not neatly clove one’s face in two in the way that this injury did.
This is all very confusing, and there is no proof one way or the other at the moment. If it’s really a failed gun suicide, why are they speaking Lebanese Arabic just like they are speaking during the dive accident?
Sources in Lebanon who were there at the promenade and witnessed the dive accident claim that the word on the street in Lebanon is that the second half was shot in the hospital and is footage of aftermath of the diving accident. In addition, the young man in the hospital at the end is wearing swim trunks, just as the diver wore. What are the chances that a video of a failed shotgun suicide by a young man wearing a bathing suit occurred and was filmed in Lebanon around the same time of this accident?
Many people have questioned the nature of the wound. It does not seem to be possible to hit a concrete slab and split your face vertically like he did. However, if you look at the dive footage, there is steel casing around the concrete slab that he hits. The concrete slab has worn away and a lot of the steel casing is exposed. The steel casing runs parallel to the shoreline. Even then, hitting the steel casing would seem to be a horizontal hit.
However, look at the way that the boy is flailing wildly in the air. In his dive, he is twisting and turning like the wind. With such a flailing dive, and probably curving to try to avoid the concrete, it’s possible for him to him to turn the 90 degrees he needs to turn to hit the sharp edge of the steel casing vertically instead of horizontally, which would result in the injury we see later.
There is another theory suggesting that the hospital footage is not even real – it’s faked using special effects. I find this dubious. Looking at the cheap quality of the video especially and the fact that faking something like this is the terrain of motion picture studios with huge budgets, I think it is clear that the guy in the hospital suit is not “some rubber thing.” One problem is that the hospital guy is quite pale, while the jumper is a typical brown-skinned Arab. This is possible is the diver lost a lot of blood.
Another suggestion, perhaps not as odd as it sounds, is that he is already dead on the ER table. The body can make a few involuntary movements after death, there are death rattles, and the breathing is said to have been artificially forced by the tube.
But why tube a dead man? And if you look closely, you can see that his tongue is moving, and his chest is going up and down. He appears to be gasping for breath. A funeral director on the Web felt that he was still very much alive. She also said gun suicide injuries never cleave the head so perfectly. Only accidents can do that.
But until can sort this out, this video will remain somewhat mysterious.
At the end of the day, it really doesn’t matter if the video is “fake” or not, because it isn’t. The dive footage is real, and the kid really did die from the dive two hours later. The hospital footage is of a real person, apparently one who died soon afterward. Does it matter if it’s of the diving kid or of some kid who tried to blow his brains out?
No, it doesn’t matter. When we watch a scary Hollywood movie, do we all scream, “Fake!”? Of course not. What matters is if a movie is scary.
And this video is downright terrifying, whether the two vignettes, one on the promenade and one in the operating room, are connected or not. They are both real footage, and it doesn’t matter if it’s the same person or not. It’s scary like Saw or Hostel is scary. At the end of the day, that’s all that matters.
There is something really creepy about this video that I can’t quite put a finger on.
From the very amateurish trilingual warning at the beginning (Arabic, French and English, suggesting once again it was made in Lebanon) to the horrible screams after he hits, to the blood-red ocean spreading in a large area around the 20-30 people gathered in the water to help him, to the absolutely terrifying scene in the hospital where the poor kid, incredibly, has a face split clear in two.
The labored, terrified breathing of the victim combined with what appears to be a the look of horror on what’s left of his face is something that really stays with you.
Throughout the video, there is some weird, cheesy, hard to describe instrumental music going in the background for some strange reason that really adds to the fear. This music is actually the soundtrack to a medical show on US TV that may or may not be on anymore. It’s either the soundtrack to ER or Chicago Hope.
The amateurish cellphone footage that jumps around jerkily also in some way makes the video even scarier. I think maybe the frightening thing about all this amateurishness of the video is that it makes it seem so real (i.e. – it’s not just a Hollywood movie!)
I was traumatized for several days after watching this thing, and I’ve watched a lot of nasty stuff.

Man Gets Eaten By Lion in Africa

[wpvideo eVYcHmc7]
I am looking for translators to translate this post into Spanish and German. Email me if you are interested.
Many, many people insist that this video must be fake, and actually, it is.
The story is that this is a very famous video that was taken in the mid-1970’s in Africa on a safari. The tourist was apparently from London. It was entered as evidence in a court case. The insurance company used this tape evidence in court to deny the life insurance claim for the guy. They argued that the man engaged in “gross stupidity” and therefore they were not on the line for payout.
In truth, this video is fake. It is said to have occurred in Wallasee National Park in Angola in the mid-70’s. There is no such place in Angola or anywhere in Africa.
The “attack victim” is named Pit Dernitz, and he has his own IMDB entry for this video. He is a very famous lion trainer.
This clip was taken from an Italian Mondo film called Ultime Grida Dalla Savana, which contains many similar clips.
This film was never entered into any court case.

One Cop No Legs

[wpvideo 6f8JBet8]
Warning! This video has caused adverse reactions, including vomiting, in some viewers. Please exercise caution in viewing this video.
This is one seriously messed up video. A traffic cop in Vietnam gets hit by a truck and is cut in half. For about five minutes, bystanders surround him but don’t know what to do. Idiotically, no other cops, ambulances, doctors, anyone, show up. The poor guy just lies there. However, the video does end at a little over 5 minutes when the ambulance finally shows up.
He realizes what is going on, and it’s like he keeps trying to stuff his guts back in. What’s even more weird is he keeps up a running conversation with the crowd around him the whole time and does not even appear to be in tremendous pain. It’s almost like he’s asking, “Hey, could you stuff my guts back in and put my legs back on please? This is really a drag lying here chopped in half you know. For one thing, I can’t get up.”
People are complaining about the bystanders and saying that they are not doing anything. This is translated into a cultural critique of Vietnam being a backwards Third World mess where life is not valued. However, if you translate the soundtrack from Vietnamese to English, a different picture emerges.
The people are crowding around, telling him to be calm, that they have called the police, but the ambulance is being slowed down by traffic. Others are trying to stop traffic so the ambulance can get through quicker. Yet others suggest getting a local doctor who lives nearby. A Christian woman tells him to pray to Jesus to save himself.
The man says, “I’m going to die…”
At one point, angrily, he says, “Stop taking pictures of me!”
This is making the rounds on the Internet these days and it’s getting pretty popular. It was on Youtube for a bit, but it quickly got removed.
I can’t handle the beheading or murder videos on here at all. I watch em once or twice and then never again. I don’t know if there’s something wrong with me, but this video did not really upset me. For some reason, I thought it was funny. I mean, the guy’s chopped in half lying in the street, and he’s acting like there’s nothing wrong. He’s looking around at the crowd, and it’s like he’s asking them about the weather. Plus, you don’t see the guy die, so it’s not so horrible.
The poor man died on the way to the hospital.
There is some confusion between this man and Peng Shulin, a Chinese man who suffered a similar accident. That incident occurred in China in 1995, and this incident occurred in Vietnam just recently. Peng Shulin survived, but he no longer has legs and has to hop around like a human frog.
