Random act of stupidity
Not specifically related to skepticism, but I had to share. A 25 year old Egyptian guy has cut off his own penis to “spite his family after he was refused permission to marry a girl from a lower class family”. Now I don’t know much about Egyptian culture, but wouldn’t going ahead and marrying the girl over his family’s objections a better, and less painful way, of spiting his family? And don’t nobody even try to make this sound romantic, the stupid overshadows any traces of romanticism.
