Apparently the BME folk have found something new to modify.

Now I have nothing against body piercings; I've known plenty of people with nipples, navels, labiae, and hoods pierced. I think the Georgia House is a lot of presumptuous idiots for banning female genital piercings. I'm not even really that squicked when people talk about Prince Alberts and things like that.

As much as I might like a silver spade flashing light whenever I look away from someone, the concept of embedding something relatively permanent in my eye, however, gives me a serious wiggins. And that's coming from someone who's had a laser shot directly into his eye around 1500 times to spot-weld his retina back into place (no, I didn't actually count).

Incidentally, if you're ok with eye squickiness, go read Bad News Hughes' November 6th entry which begins "Sometimes in life it’s necessary to let a motherfucker stick a razorblade in your eye. Really." It's entries like these which are making it rapidly become my favorite blog.

[User Picture]Reading this, I just think of Un Chien Andalou. You know the scene.

And, when I was a teen, I scratched my cornea. Hurt like hell. They gunked it and put a flesh-colored bandage over it, which I covered with glacier glasses. It's things like that that make me not wear contact lenses anymore.

Yeah--the retinal detachment I mentioned required the doctor to use a probe to push-deform my eye so he could reach the surface of the retina with the detachment. When my friend asked, "didn't that hurt?" I replied, "HELL YEAH, IT HURT!"
