The 35-year-old Pole burst into the Zizzi eaterie in central London and grabbed a knife from the kitchen.<br><br>
He then leapt on a table and dropped his trousers as customers fled screaming.</i><br><br>
i just cannot imagine what must have driven him to it, i also feel terrible for the people eating at the restaurant, something like that would haunt me forever.

I've rarely heard of a man doing this to himself. Very strange. Read the article on the BBC and it said that they were unable to reattach it.

The title of the thread led me to think this was about a suicide bomber. Couldn't understand the "coyness" of the choice of words.<br><br><br><br>
Am understanding it now. Thank G!d he only physically injured himself. Though am sure the witnesses will have a hard time getting past it all ...<br><br><br><br><br>
Guess he didn't like the pizza.

Actually it might be more common than we think/know about. This type of body mod is kept underground and is illegal. THere is good reason it should be illegal because it is a dangerous procedure. But you can't get doctors to do this type of modification "because only crazy person" would do that.<br><br>
His actions do so that there is more than wanting a body modifcation. It shows great mental instability.

At least he only hurt himself, and didn't take anybody else out with him. The onlookers were traumatized, but none of them were murdered or injured physically.<br><br>
I'm just so sad that there's so much untreated and undertreated mental illness today, and so many desperate people doing desperate things.

Uh, I think the current title is worse than the previous one. Either they'll think he mutilated a member of some group, or they'll figure out exactly what he did without even clicking on the post.<br><br>
how about "man mutilates self in public"

Alrighty then. It did say disturbing and harms self in title. I'd say that's fair enough warning without getting graphic. I really don't see the difference between that and the current title
