Now I've been drunk, but.....

For a disturbing news story for the male audience....

A 30 year old Latvian man strongly under the influence of alcohol, made a bet with his friend for 1 000 lats ($1 800) that he would cut off his penis.... and then did it! This "flick of the switch" required a six hour microsurgical operation by Plastic Surgeons to reattach. It will be a number of months (if the replantation works) before his doctor will be able to reassess his recovery of sensation. (Peripheral nerves regenerate at just under 1mm/day under ideal conditions BTW)

Those Latvians really know how to party! Remind me never to pass out drunk around that crowd.
