Thumb Down Most Disturbing Hobby ever?

Just when I thought I had heard it all.....flesh hook bungee jumping?
I guess I am boring and normal after all....

Quote:
Bungee jumping is dangerous enough as it is, but this team of Russian daredevils is taking it to an entirely different level.

Known as the Sinner Team, the adventurists forgo the usual safety harness and affix bungee cords directly to their skin. The team calls this form of free fall suspension bungee jumping "The Challenge."

Founded by Stanislav Aksenov and his wife Elena in 2008, the Sinner Team performs a wide variety of body suspension feats, but did not begin adapting the practice to bungee jumping until 2010, according to a 2012 documentary about the group.

As seen in the documentary, entitled "The Birth," Aksenov and the team started off small, performing 10-meter suspension swings before trying the technique on a larger scale. Since then, the Sinner Team has slowly pushed the label, jumping from higher locations and attaching the bungee hooks to various areas of the body, such as the knee, for example.


There's video at the link.....

WOW!

And I thought women getting their lady parts pierced on both sides so they can lace it up like a shoe was disturbing!


Not that I've ever seen it of course, but I hear things . . .

We all have to get our jollies out of this life somehow. As long as a hobby does no harm (financial or physical, ick-factor does not count) to others, I say have fun with that. I can think of any number of hobbies that are far more disturbing.

Well, this hobby COULD be used in place of penile enlargement. Then they get a great stretch and all is wonderful in their personal lives.

Hmmm, grandmaster level penile enlargement you say. Wrap it around your leg twice before doing up your pants you say. Interesting.

I remember seeing something like this in Ripley's Believe it or Not! Some guy was hanging from a helicopter with the hooks in his skin. Still, that was nothing compared to this.

Haven't I seen pictures of some native tribesmen doing something similar to this, but with the hooks through their nipples?

Ouch!
