    "But after a few minutes, a couple cigarettes and several deep breaths, he sat in the basement of a storefront tattoo parlor, closed his eyes and let a friend split his tongue down the middle with a scalpel....his tongue was clamped in place, numbed and slit 2 inches (5 cm) up the middle, looking uncomfortably like a piece of raw liver freshly cut by a butcher."

    His brain got a new function! I am wondering whether his tongue(s) can roll independently.

    I wonder what it looks like when he sticks his tongue out and goes TTTTHHHHHHHHHHHH?

    I can't even read the whole story. I had to stop when I got to the part about looking like liver.

    Talk about speaking with a forked tongue!

    Where are this kids parents?!!!!
    He will surely regret this eventually.

    I wonder how much it changes your voice, or if you get used to it....

    Did anyone actually read the last sentence of this article...

    "But for believers in modification, a split tongue is merely a start. Split penises, sliced lengthwise in half, are not unheard of among aficionados."

    One word: wow.

    You know, Anyone who does this is an idiot. There's no justification. It doesn't make any kinda of political or social statement other than to say I'm into self-mutilation.

    As for the penis thing *cringe* I don't care how good it makes me in bed. Go get a damn vibrator woman!

    i don't see how it could be better in bed, unless you wanted to have the pleasure of 2 ladies at the same time. even so, i think it would seriously mess up how everything works down there.

    Ouch! I opened a piercing magazine up once, right to the center pages where the staples were, and had the misfortune of seeing a closeup of this. I still feel a cringe reflex when I think about it.
