The thing that he should have used was mugwort. They make moxibustion products that are just right for burning pain without tissue damage in easy lighting, self-adhesive rolls. They did give me some blisters once in the summer when I was sweaty, but if you just wipe the skin first with a dry cloth it's fine. No fuss, no muss, perfectly legal, and it's religious discrimination to penalize someone for traditional remedies that just happen to be painful. Our grandmothers never went to jail for putting iodine on our cuts as sprogs.

I'm more worried about this butch assassin that's roaming around.

Sounds like ex-spook or freaked out spook. They love torture.

Approves, but use a cigar or open flame.

pssshhhh, Dexter always lets them off too easy. I got this.

MurphyMurphy dons his thick heat resistant welding gloves and opens the door to the basement. Slowly descending the stairs the basement ceiling rises above his eye-line to reveal the scene:

A dirt floor skirted by workbenches and various half broken/fixed machines. One light bulb hanging by it's socket and wiring swinging lazily in the dim light it exudes. In the middle of the room a lone wooden slat chair. The chairs sole occupant is a 20-something man named Adam, nervously fidgeting against his restraints, free to turn his head and look around but gagged to prevent protest.


MurphyMurphy: Good morning Adam, I'm sorry about the discomfort... I hope you were able to rest well in spite of the conditions? You will be needing your strength.

Adam's efforted protests fall muffled against the oily rags that have been shoved into his mouth and taped over.

Smiling at the spirit of his subject, MurphyMurphy picks up his hand torch, turns the valve and sparks it to life. Examining the flame for a moment, he reaches over to the nearest work bench and picks up the pair of pliers resting on the corner of the table.


MurphyMurphy: Ok now Adam. As we discussed last night, this would be the ideal time for you to start some of that pain-reducing meditation.

The old man grabbed me and said, "Hey, smoke up Johnny."

What? Am I reading this correctly? That's the most bizarre comparison I have ever seen.

Dude is a sick farker right on par with the Fundie who waterboarded his daughter.

Meditation CAN completely remove the pain of burning. Some parents DO try to toughen up their kids.

So, I'll give this guy the benefit of the dumb. If he did in fact do it to teach them pain control, he chose a very bad way to do so. He should be punished for that alone. But if he instead lied to try and cover actual abuse as opposed to stupidity, he should be given to people, like me, who gave him the benefit of the doubt so that we might teach others who might emulate such deceit the error of those ways by ripping out his still beating heart...with a spoon because it will hurt more.

A Houlton man has been charged with using a lit cigarette to burn two children he was teaching to meditate.

Were they even his kids?

Police on Thursday said 28-year-old Adam Maguire

Goddammit! Why couldn't he have been one of the mis-spelled McGuires?

burned the children ... "in an attempt to show them pain compliance while meditating."

"If it hurts, you're not complying enough! Stop crying and pay attention."

The children were told that when you clear your mind, you are no longer susceptible to pain.

OK, I've seen picture of dudes with skewers jammed through their skin all over their bodies, and I'm willing to accept that they've managed to convince themselves it doesn't hurt, but I'm pretty sure that requires a little more practice and training that Psychonuts here and his lighter were providing.
