Social networking for cannibals  MAR 18 2011

This article by Josh Kurp in The Awl is fascinating but really *really* hard to read in spots. Seriously, it's really disturbing in spots...consider yourself forewarned.

This is what happened: A little over ten years ago, on March 9, 2001, 39-year-old Meiwes, a computer technician living in the German village of Wustefeld, brought home, had sex with and killed 44-year-old Brandes, a Berlin man who lived about 250 miles away. Meiwes then ate 44 pounds of his flesh over a period of ten months. While that may sound like murder, there's something else that should be mentioned: Brandes wanted it all to happen.
