You know what, some people are just hard to feel sorry for.

but when she went to see a doctor, he quoted her $5,000 for the procedure.
Morris, she says, would do it for just $1,500 at her apartment.


$3500 less? And you can do it right here in my apartment? This sounds legit!

This is not a repeat from 1950. Seriously, there have been studies on authority. Otherwise normal people will torture others because people in lab coats tell them to do it. Without any real coersion, except social pressure.

*note that actual torture was not inflicted, just shrieks and cries from help from the room next door as the button was pressed.

* Dons a white lab coat. Pins on little badge*. I have perfected a new method of breast exams. It is an entirely new technique that doesn't even require you to leave the comfort and safety of your own home. All you have to do is email me a picture of your boobies, and using a STATE OF THE ART technology I can examine them. All this for a one time free offer. Act now, before it's too late.

Omg..the quotes are comedy gold, and they keep coming.

A Tampa woman claims a fake plastic surgeon ruined her life after injecting her buttocks with fix-a-flat and cement.
Morris, she says, would do it for just $1,500 at her apartment.

"It came back as bathroom caulking," she said. "You would put a substance in me to kill me? It's not fair to me."

n addition to pneumonia, she had discoloration of the skin and a rear-end she describes as "rock hard".

"I feel like she tried to kill me," she said. "Why would you try to do that to somebody after I gave you all that money?"

/Wow...waits for "the stupid it burns pic".
//meh..fark it..ill do it myself.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: You know what, some people are just hard to feel sorry for.



Exactly right. I want to know, how someone can get a job as a stock broker, or a banker or something requiring a college degree and still be so incredibly unintelligent as to go to some hack with a "clinic" based in an old warehouse or a rental house or some back alley garage with no sterile facilities whatsoever to get their boobs or their butts enhanced with bathtub caulk or "Fix-A-Flat". Or to get Botox injections or even farking liposuction. There have been dozens of these sort of stories. You hear all the time about someone going to a black market "clinic" to save a few bucks on reinforcing their own vanity and ending up in a real hospital with massive infections or chemical toxicity disorders, then complaining about the person that they actively sought out to do the procedures.

There are some people in this world who get exactly what they deserve through their own stupidity. I have no sympathy at all. What the hell is wrong with these people?

I was development lead for the team that built an access control system for a certain spooky three-letter agency's new headquarters, and for whatever reason they made the techs wear lab coats with the three letters blazoned on the back whenever they were doing installation work.

Darn right I stole one took one home. It's shameful, I know, but I now not only have a white lab coat, I have a *spooky* white lab coat.

I think the 'victim' has way more judgement problems than picking the wrong doctor for a rump pump.

Being a mortgage broker does not require a college degree. You need only the ability to work a calculator while lying through your teeth.

We must have been smarter in the 1980's. If a kid walked in dressed and acting like a doctor, we called shenanigans until he proved he was legit.

"You have to give him another shock."
"OK."


Do you remember the name of that experiment? I remember learning about it. Specifically:

1. They had non-doctors wear the lab coats, so there was no authority aside from the uniform itself.

2. Some people had nervous breakdowns as pressing the button apparently caused the "victim" more and more pain. Some even begged not to have to push the button.

3. Some people enjoyed pressing the button and inflicting pain with the encouragement of authority.

4. All you had to do to stop was get up and walk out. That's it. Walk away. But I can't recall the exact percentage of people that refused to inflict pain--wasn't it around 10%?

As per the article:

Honest Bender: /I just can't bring myself to feel sorry for this idiot.


Yeah, well the next time you're strapped for cash and need a medically necessary procedure like "butt enlargement", you'll know what it's like to wear the shoe on the other foot for a mile on your way out!

Even Priscilla Presley had some terrible work done when a woman injected industrial grade silicone directly into her face. Only this woman would host lavish injection parties for potential clients, was already married to a respected plastic surgeon, wore the white coat over her designer clothes, and had lovely looking equipment that she'd haul around to these people's houses. Of course after a week or so these celebrity wives would look in the mirror, see their faces were wonky and lopsided with weird lumps here and there and knew they were ripped off. With the Pampered Chef and Mary Kay parties moving up into botox and other minor cosmetic procedures customers are easily falling into some bizarre traps that just aren't even registering on the bull sh*t scale anymore.

I simply cannot understand what would motivate a person to have botox or "minor" cosmetic procedures without taking them seriously as medical procedures. Beyond disfigurement, or the fact that the botulism toxin is one of the most potent toxins on earth, the risk and consequences of infection would be enough to scare me into taking it farking seriously. But...to go to a black market clinic...to have...fix-a-flat ... pumped into your ass...?

$10 labcoat vs. "they jerked me and my team out of a few thousand hours."

No, I don't feel bad about this at all. It's one of those "you'd have to be there" sort of things.

Besides... I like to live dangerously. Yes, it was a jerk thing to do. They owed me and my people a few thousands of dollars though, and they owed me a lab coat.

THIS!!!

I also am having trouble feeling sorry for this person, but I think it is also a cautionary tale (albeit an extreme one). Generally speaking we don't check a professional's credentials, we usually just go with it, and in the case of doctors doing procedures on our bodies, the price of taking this shortcut can be disastrously high.
