Yeah, just seen this on the 10 o'clock news (Gasp! Student watching news?)
I think I'm more disturbed by the fact that this guy (supposedly) voluntarily let himself be killed and eaten. You might have to be slightly unhinged to eat another human being, but how unhinged do you have to be to offer yourself up as the main course?
You've got to be 'out of your tree' to want to eat someone (or possibly very hungry), and it gets a little too 'Hanibal Lecktor' for me when he decides to invite his meal round to his flat, chat, drink coffee and video the whole thing.
But this Bernd-Jurgen Brandes must have been several miles further down the 'Loopy Line' with a first class ticket on the 'Insane Express'! Not only did he volunteer (and we all know that breaks the BIG 'Rule One'), he joined in the first course of fried todger and, according to the papers, said before he bled to death (10 hours later!) that if he was still alive by the morning he'd join his host in sharing a breakfast of his knackers!!!!
There are some sick people out there, and there may be more who want to eat rather than be eaten!!
