Scary what some people believe in for "traditional" medicines. Although I spent two years living in South Korea, this is a new one to me.

/Anyone else ever heard about this one?

So, Soylent Green is a Chinese product.

Sounds like a fairly modest ploposal to me.

The capsules were made in northeastern China from babies whose bodies were chopped into small pieces and dried on stoves before being turned into powder, the Korea Customs Service said.

So when you think you've got a bad job, just remember...

filling all those little capsules by hand! Geez would take forever

This is just the alternative medicine equivalent of stem-cell treatment.

How is babby choped an dryd?

What's grosser than a dead baby?

The same dead baby in 1000 slow release capsuls.
 
2012-05-07 11:21:08 AM  
How do they know that they were babies? Not that capsules full of chopped-up flesh aren't bad enough, but exactly how do they determine that it came from babies? And what's the cut-off age for "baby?" If you put five-year-old flesh in them, would that degrade your product?

Tastes like bullshiat.
 
2012-05-07 11:21:19 AM  
Well it happened earlier than I expected but this isn't a surprise to me. Given that the Chinese have hunted species into extinction for things like white tiger penises, I figured it was only a matter of time before they started eating humans.

Bunch of sick farks.

Finally, a treatment for cannibalism without the strange smell in your basement

/my attempted headline
 
2012-05-07 11:21:46 AM  
The capsules of human flesh, however, contained bacteria and other harmful ingredients.

No problem, just make them suppositories.
 
2012-05-07 11:21:53 AM  
Well after you get all the baby oil out of the fetus why not grind it up into a pill..

/What? Baby oil doesn't come from squeezing babies?
//What about olive oil then???

There was a story a few years back about Palentologists who discovered a mother load of dino fossils in central China, that the locals had dug up and were selling for $0.50 a kilo as "dragon bones" for making Dragon Bone Soup

It is indefensible. The medicine is to weak. Now if they took one dead baby, chopped it up, dried it, and then diluted it down 1,000,000 times, THEN, that would work.

//Fark, you have destroyed me...
 
2012-05-07 11:24:12 AM  
I remember joking in the past, after reading about them eating tigers for boner medicine, that the Chinese would eat babies if someone claimed it was a "remedy." Looks like I can officially cross that off my list.

"Customs officials refused to say where the dead babies came from or who made the capsules, citing possible diplomatic friction with Beijing."

Because we certainly don't want to hurt the feelings of Chinese people who harvest and dehydrate human babies, do we?

Next after the break, The Borg: They just want us all to get along.
 
2012-05-07 11:24:59 AM  
Have the Chinese been reading A Modest Proposal? Perhaps they haven't quite grasped satire yet.
 
2012-05-07 11:25:26 AM

Ok, unless you have a really strong stomach DO NOT GOOGLE FOR "CANNIBALISM IN CHINA". I won't link to any of the images I saw, but, I don't think I'm hungry anymore and I don't think I'm going to sleep very well for the next couple of nights.

Humans are very, very messed up.

You're not supposed to EAT the dead baby... you're supposed to dip it in water to make a homeopathic tincture of dead baby.

Why go through all that trouble? Just collect foreskins. No mess, no hassle.

Wow, first I ever heard of this. That is really farked up.

WTF China/Korea?

I was thinking maybe illegal stem cell research or at the limit, illegal anti-aging or cosmetic uses, but black magic and traditional medicine (there's some over lap between such categories) is a possibility I should have thought of faster.

I was reading the first chapter of a book on the French this weekend and it spent a consider amount of time arguing the the past is not dead in France, any more than it is in Africa or China or more "exotic" cultures that we don't expect to be "modern", even though everything contemporary is by definition modern, including anachronisms and tradition.

This is a prime example of William Faulner's brilliant observation that: "'The past is never dead. It's not
even past."

Being a Southerner, he would know. The past lives on endlessly. You can't escape it. It is fatuous to say "How is this possible in this day and age?" Everything is possible in all days and ages. As Scriptures say: "Enquire not why former days were better than these, for thou doest not enquire wisely after this."

The Good Old Days were terrible, and sadly, they are still with us. Our human minds and brains are layered, with the proto-human, the ape, the monkey, the small terrified rodent, the reptile, the amphibian and the fish still working away like a jerry-built company computer system built around an ancient mainframe like the one that only Wally knows how to programme in the animated Dilbert cartoon about Y2K.

Man's a kind
Of missing link
Fondly* thinking
He can think.

-Piet Hein, Grooks

*Fondly here means "foolishly", its original meaning, still in use as recently as the Eighteenth Century perhaps alongside the new meaning of "affectionate" or "doting", as in "fond Mother". It is, no doubt, still being used in that sense in some British villages somewhere.

they should have made sure that they contained deadly bacteria and allowed the shipment to continue.

Yes, using an embryo to cure disease is worse than taking a dead person and eating them. Uh huh.

I don't know what 'tincture' means, but I'm fairly sure 'put them in water and watch them grow' doesn't apply here.
