Jocular Look @ Today’s News || Injecting olive oil into your penis may cause it to disappear

A 50-year-old Thai man had to have his penis removed by doctors after developing a severe infection (which turned out to be cancerous), the result of his decision to inject it with olive oil for years in an effort to make it bigger. The man had been bragging to his friends about his injections, an apparently common practice in Bangkok, where men receive the back alley treatments which can also involve injections of beeswax, silicone and paraffin. Said a hospital spokeswoman of the stretching techniques, “A woman will love a man not because of the size.” [Source]

Yes size matters, especially when it comes to your brain

I find it off that this took place first in Bangkok, was it extra virgin olive Oil? Uhm it might have made a difference. I have noticed that there is a lot of insecurity now amongst guys. I see it at the gym, on the train, everywhere.

It’s rare to find someone who accepts themselves as they are. I think this gets amplified  in society and collectively we don’t accept ourselves as we are. We want to be bigger stronger faster etc. There is something to be said about diversity and changing one’s look  but where do we draw the line ?

 There is a quote I always remember:

Americans may have no identity, but they do have wonderful teeth.”  –Baudrillard

I feel this doesn’t just apply to Americans only but everyone really. I think over the last few decades companies and governments have been very successful in reducing people down to  vehicles of ideology and consumers. Someone has only value based on what ideology they buy and what materials they have amassed.

I saw that a lot during the election. People said: I am a Republican, Or I am A Democrat which to me was very different than saying I vote Democrat or Republican. if you notice when you meet someone new a lot of the initial interactions is spent labeling themselves categorizing their favorite act. Everyone has become a billboard, or forever some faceless incurious being wander to and for according to some fictitious trendy dictates of the time.

Ok that was a little off topic tangent but it’s what came out.

  1. I think about this all the time when someone asks me who I am or what I do. Can it all really be bottled into one thing: your profession, your last name, your looks? No.
