BME Pain Olympics and 2 girls, 1 cup won the internet as far as I am concerned.

I think BME came out to be a fake, but wow the person doing it achieved in making me vomit.

RE: Watched something I shouldnt have
Oooooh. Kids with the hammer. Gotcha.

Yeah, that's a bit out there. I saw someone mention it here in this thread a few pages back and looked it up out of curiosity.

Strange thing with me is: reading descriptions of things like that tend to affect me more than seeing them. I don't know why. I guess because seeing something makes it tangible, and when something is tangible, it's brought into the realm of everyday reality instead of being on a big, scary pedestal. When I read about the Ukraine kids, I was all shifty and uncomfortable in my seat, but then I googled the images and felt a noticeable weight lift from me. It made it tangible. Tangible means I can literally and metaphorically "deal with it." Granted, the idea of hammer meeting skull has always made me squeemish, so for that reason I'll probably not watch the video. For now, anyway.

I say this mostly as a possible method of coping in the future. Not that you want to go around eating popcorn and watching real people get mauled, but if you're faced with that prospect again, maybe just ease yourself into it. Think of it more like you're investigating a crime, rather than witnessing one. Read about the incident. The story around it. Familiarize yourself with what happened. Make it tangible so it's just part of the world that we live in every day. THEN maybe, if you so desire, subject yourself to the footage. Again, not that you'd want to, but, that's what helped me to not be so bothered by this sort of depravity.

Going all-out and just watching a video all at once, though? Nah. Too much of a shock. Be stronger than your persuasive friends. lol

Really? Well that's a relief. I will just take what you said on faith and not actually follow up on that. Angel

Yea I jumped in feet first with this one. And I was unaware of what I was about to see. I waa expecting some sort of ISIS clip etc...

While I was still reeling from what I just saw I immediately researched the people involved and found out about the rest of the stuff they did and found out there were videos of copycat lunatics doing similar things. I didn't watch those.

So yeah from now on I'm vetting everything.

RE: Watched something I shouldnt have
Unfortunately when looking at the human race and the evolutionary cycle we are really just smarter hairless apes than our ancestors that lived before us. We are carrying their disgusting genes. We are apes who still have a ferocious killer instinct that when given way to is no different than an animal hell bent on killing you accept the animal is extremely intelligent and has no sympathy.

Over the next 1,000 to 100,000 to 100,000,000 yrs or so if we can successfully transition to our more evolved ancestor effectively leaving the more primal one behind, hopefully things like this will no longer be a part of reality. Unfortunately when thinking on this scale you can't help but wonder though what other similar to us type predatory beings might be lurking out in the Cosmos.

I guess I've convinced myself that along with knowledge and understanding comes sympathy and empathy so sympathy and empathy can only come from a more evolved species. Hopefully it's true that the further a species evolves that the more illogical it becomes to destroy and cause great harm. I can't imagine any reality where hate and destruction should be compromised with other than the only reality I've ever known. Sounds confusing because you could say "Well of course you can imagine it because you live in it!" but doesn't it all just seem like a bad dream sometimes? The sadistic pleasures some people get from these acts are almost unimaginable. The more you think about it the more you realize just how "under-evolved" we all really are and how close to the animal kingdom we appear to still be. It's actually quite obvious.

Its the most brutal, cold video I have ever seen, and ever since I saw it its on my mind a lot and I'm quite upset about it. It wasn't the gore that bothered me, it was the fact that people can do this sort of stuff to another human being.

My view of the world and the people in it has been permanently changed. I'm now paranoid when I'm walking around outside. Yeah I know, theres an equal chance of something happening to me whether I watch a video or not...but this has really got to me.

I'm no going to say what the video is because I don't want anyone else to watch it.

I just wanted to ask, have you ever come across something that has impacted you like this and how did you deal with it?

You have heard the old saying, you can't unwatch somethin so becareful what you click. Sounds like you watched two guys and a hammer or something similar. Since I am a criminal justice major we discuss crime a lot and someone brought up that video for example in class. Foolishly I went home and searched for and watched, this was years ago and the video is permanently etched into my brain, it was so horrifyingly sadistic it made me sick, my outlook on fellow human beings has never been the same thereafter. This is the reason I avoid watching horror movies, if I wanted to watch horror I would watch the news. Only time and surrounding yourself in positivity will make it fade in my opinion

I heard about the hammer video back in high school, and I stupidly looked up a description (knowing I wouldn't want to see pictures/video), and just reading about it really disturbed and me and shook me up for a while.
