National Geographic's "Taboo"

    Anybody else watching this tonight? They started off with people who hang from hooks by their upper back skin, then moved on to boys in some Pacific Island who put on gloves containing fire ants, and now they're on to boys who are getting cut all over to get scars symbolic of their status as men.

    Insane stuff. I had seen the previews for nearly a month and couldn't miss it.

    Is Kay Parker in this one?
  3. No, but Charlie "Bird" Parker and Willie Parker are. And maybe Parker Posey.

    I've seen shows on the cutting where they are doing it to a toddler. I know it's a culture thing, and it's just their way, but I just don't think I could handle allowing someone to cut a baby multiple times with a sharp rock. The few minutes of it I've seen on TV were torture enough.

    This guy is not involved...


    ...However, this guy in the middle is because, much like Ryan Sonner, he can't lose...

    I'm never starting topics again! :)

    I'm watching the replay of it now. The ant thing is creeping me out. Since they started doing the road construction next to my house, we've had a major ant problem in the yard. I'll probably end up with nightmares after this show, yet I keep watching it.

    Good grief this just isn't right! This is totally insane.

    I know! That's why I made the topic in the first place. Watch what comes next, with the guys and the vines. That's just even more not right, if that's even possible.

    I believe Steve-o and Chris Pontius did the ants-in-the-glove thing on an episode of WildBoyz once. I seem to remember a lot of howling and screaming, and then trips for each to the hospital for shots for their swollen, red hands.
