The Head of the Turtle

Whenever I think I’m going to sit down and write some cool weird original fiction I stumble across something like this magical penis thieves article and realize I’m going to have to try a little harder to top reality for strangeness.

I will note that the above article makes some intriguing mentions concerning certain classifications in the DSM-IV and how the illnesses referenced seem quite a bit more rare in non-Western cultures, indicating a certain amount of bias toward which diagnoses might be “culture bound” and which are more universal. Scan down until you see the phrase “Healthy Migrant Effect”.

In any case, if such things interest you, a couple hours researching Koro might do you some good. Or do you some damage. Depending.
