Mysticism is one of the biggest mystery in east.. Just like what i've seen by my own, when metal wires coming out from a woman's stomach..
Noorsyaidah (40).. Can't do nothing more to stop her suffering, when lot of rusty, sharpened metal wires come out from his stomach.. She has injured by this unbelievable disease more than 17 years (since 1991)..

I'd be more impressed if they were growing out of her back, where she couldn't reach. On the lighter side, could be a faulty box spring mattress.

I smell a hoax, and coming out of Indonesia, it's not suprising. They do quite a bit of that sort of thing.

Kind'a looks like she might be starting to get a little infection around some of those wires. Me, I'd insist on having the doctor's name and his writings on the case, and viewing the alledged X-rays. Further, I'd want the name and location of the lab that took them.

Acupuncture taken to it's logical conclusion, eh?

Oh my...

And I thought ear coning was dangerous.

If only the wire was of higher quality, it might pass as extreme piercing, the next trend in decretive self mutilation.


Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

The diagnosis does not depend on recognising that the condition is being faked. "That is a given". She does not have wires growing out of her body. She has wires inserted in her body.

If we take the story as reported as true, it implies there are no doctors in Indonesia capable of correctly diagnosing a severed arm.

Or we could sell her to the salvage yard for scrap....
