Out of the Blue

Oi! It's Friday the 13th, and I seem to be suffering for it, as I've had a few technical difficulties today, especially with the YouTube. That turned out to be a problem with my browser, as Chrome refused to login, and I had to use Firefox, as apparently the right hand and the left hand at Google are having a little trouble at the moment. So I don't know if all this qualifies as bad luck, but I probably won't be walking under any ladders at this rate either.

Papua New Guinea charges 29 alleged cannibals.

Well, penis soup is one thing, but raw brains is quite another. The 29 people charged all ate the raw brains of 7 Papua New Guinean witchdoctors they killed over the past month, putting them at severe risk of the following:

Kuru - a neurodegenerative disease found among people from New Guinea who practiced a form of cannibalism in which they ate the brains of dead people as part of a funeral ritual. This practice stopped in 1960, but cases of kuru were reported for many years afterward because the disease has a long incubation period. The signs of kuru include paralysis, blindness and madness, and it is always terminal.

A very nasty disease, with a very long incubation. If the Australian police don't bring them to justice, nature almost certainly will.
