Probably too late for a DarwinAward, but should defintiely get an honorable mention for the effort.

Heh, Cinletharwi beat me to it, but my first thought was...
"Darwinism at it's finest!"

Could have been worse...his crazed girlfriend could have snatched off one of his balls. At least the man successfully castrated himself, thereby preventing any procreation and passing on of the idiot gene.

Fox needs a TV show where guys get cockpunched for the first 15 minutes and the last 15 minutes of the show is filled with reenactments of male genital mutilations.

Kind of a cross between "Americas Funniest Home Videos" and "Jackass". John Bobbit could be the host. Guest narrators would include Lorena Bobbit, Ivana Trump, and any other famous people who really really hate dicks.

Oh no. No. No. No. No. Please tell me that this isn't the guy that, you know, cut off, his, you know what I mean, and posted it on the internet. Because that was so, so wrong.

/didn't open link. Last time scarred me for life.
2005-01-20 08:38:36 AM  
C'mon, Dom , do you really think if a guy like that had a girlfriend, he'd be cutting his balls off?
2005-01-20 08:49:33 AM  
What a dumbass.

"of course it's safe! i found it on the internet."
2005-01-20 09:24:41 AM  
Please do not search for or link to any castration sites. Reading the story is far enough into this topic. Thank You.

If he wanted to get castrated he should have just said he wanted to get a circumcision and wait for them to screw up the surgery.

A 50-year-old Reno man told authorities he castrated himself to lower his libido

I wonder why he wanted to lower his libido. Hopefully he is some sick pervert. Oh wait, he castrated himself, he is a sick pervert.

Adios, amigos....
2005-01-20 01:38:08 PM  
Which internets specifically?
2005-01-20 01:38:08 PM  
Have any of you wonderfully open-minded Farkers ever considered that he might have had to do it himself because no one would do it in a sterile and professional environment for him?
2005-01-20 01:38:20 PM  
Is the castration/circumcision trifecta in play?
2005-01-20 01:38:50 PM  
Wow! I bet he goes to the "Walmarts" and/or the "K-Marts" to shop to.
2005-01-20 01:39:04 PM  
Does it come with a good pie recipe?

""The man obviously needs some sort of counseling", Reno police Lt. Dangle said."

Really, you know only someone like Dangle could state the obvious.

I believe the submitter meant to type "interNUTS."

I am officially ashamed to live in Reno right now. Its a sad day.
2005-01-20 01:44:58 PM  
so much for having camel toe now
2005-01-20 01:45:55 PM  
Why do you love me? Why do you need me? Always and forever... We met in a chatroom, now our love can fully bloom... Sure the world wide web is great, but you, you make my salivate... I love technology, but not as much as you, you see... But I STILL love technology... Always and forever. Our love is like a flock of doves, flying up to heaven above... always and forever, always and forever... Why do you need me? Why do you love me? Always and forever...
2005-01-20 01:47:50 PM  
he certainly makes a good case for castration clinics.
2005-01-20 01:48:40 PM  
man, if you want to lower your libido, go to the freaking drugstore and buy some salt peter and put it in your food
2005-01-20 01:49:19 PM  
OMG he actually castrated himself ????
That takes some balls !!!
2005-01-20 01:50:17 PM  
That takes some balls !!!

took some balls....
2005-01-20 01:51:29 PM  
So, did he read that k5 post too?
2005-01-20 01:52:34 PM  

are you wanting everyone to give him some slack or something?

i'm sorry, but if you do something as stupid as trying to castrate yourself, using directions you got off the internets, you deserve public ridicule...
2005-01-20 01:52:44 PM  
Something like that calls for cheerleaders...


yea team
2005-01-20 01:53:17 PM  
Somewhere in the village of Reno, NV they are missing their idiot. Please, no more of these stories, 1 a ripped off testicle, 2 botched circumsions, and now 3 castration. May have to give up reading fark for my daily laugh, getting too painful. Buzz.
2005-01-20 01:53:23 PM  
MrDNA: That takes some balls !!

That took away some balls
2005-01-20 01:53:42 PM  
This thread is just fine without pics.
2005-01-20 01:54:53 PM  
They lack of details is intriguing.

Why did he feel such an urgent need to lower his libido?

Was he under some schizophrenic or religious delusion that all sexual feelings (whether straight or gay) are evil and wrong, or is he perhaps a guilt-ridden actual pervert trying to permanently prevent himself from molesting people?

2005-01-20 01:55:17 PM  
Did he replace them with plastic eyeballs that play a Mr. Bojangles rip-off when they clack together?

Aw, nuts!
2005-01-20 01:56:56 PM  
hold on that other link where the guy cut off his..... yeah with the rubber bands and whatnot, that didnt get on fark did it? oh lord i hope not.

//i saw it and i died a little inside, after i threw up
2005-01-20 01:57:09 PM  
He went about it all wrong. All you have to do is wrap a couple of rubber bands around the offending organs, and they'll drop in a couple of weeks. Moran.
2005-01-20 01:58:24 PM  
This isn't the guy from the pictures last night is it? The rubber bands.... Still traumatized, and I'm female. Owwwwwwie.

You weren't ashamend before this story?
2005-01-20 02:01:49 PM  
BTW, when you refer to teh internets, you have to missppel (yes, that's on purpose) "the" as "teh".

2005-01-20 02:07:27 PM  
He should meet up with the guy in Texas selling his left nut and a fishing trip. Maybe someone can get a two-for-one deal out of them.
2005-01-20 02:08:34 PM  
It makes you wonder. The link that should-never-be-sought-and-never-be-seen-again was posted between 3 and 4pm EST.

This guy calls for help the same day / later that night.

/if you didn't see the link ... really ... don't go looking for it, some things are better unseen.

//internets can give you nighmares.
2005-01-20 02:08:46 PM  
I was, but now it is set in stone.

/Must get the fark out of this damn city.
2005-01-20 02:09:39 PM  
He should have just put them in a vice. This way he could still carry around a cymbal of his manhood.
2005-01-20 02:10:15 PM  

I think he cut himself some slack, I don't think we need to do it for him.

I'm just trying to provoke a little actual thought around here. I can't do it in the political threads, so obviously it falls to the castration thread. Maybe Planned Parenthood could set up castration clinics so that castration is not done by back-alley butchers, but is done in a sane and controlled environment.

Now I'm just asking for it... ;)
