That's what it looks like, but I kinda doubt it. iirc krokodil's more likely to dissolve flesh near the injection site, and based on the background (tropical/tribal) it's probably not accessible there.
I initially thought leprosy, but that doesn't fit either. Possibly just a really bad infection, flesh-eating bacteria or something.
nice meeting you too. Do you speak tagalog? I was actually surprised to find a rarity in this forum that is a fellow Filipino, I once found a filipino thread but it s not that active. Ive read you work in a university so youre obviously older than me. How old are you po? it will be interesting to know you more. I thought I was the only Filipino in this forum when I started.
It's an experiment. I had somebody PM me recently who said he actually became enraged at my posts. Further, due to my avatar and dry delivery (and his intuition about these things) he informed me I was an INTJ. Not just him but I've picked up a number of critics recently.
I think this speaks to the power of image, many think that in the modern world we've become immune to image, but I think they're even more powerful, from this experience. I'm betting that an innocuous avatar will make people read my posts in a different light.
And yeah I don't think the point is to try and become a sociopath, even though that seems to be what everyone in the comments section of the article was interested in. They probably just don't like the idea of being called losers :p
If somehow I could identify the parasitic birds then I could twist their necks and throw them into the air instead.
Innards everywhere gore and splat. I could totally picture two birds fighting, each with one end of some intestinal tube in their mouth trying to snatch it from one another; whereupon, they start to spin uncontrollably, neither part of the pair willing to let go. Then they crash into the ground, mortally wounded from the impact. I would have to put them out of their misery of course and then... recursion! It would be fantastic.
