    Tibetan sky burial

    Pretty cool, but not for the squeamish.

    Probably not for most people at work, either.

    odd.

    is it a sacrificial thing?

    Sacrifice? How about just recycling an otherwise useless hunk of flesh, giving it back to the earth from whence it originated?

    "Oh great vulture gods, please take this offering, so that you may be less inclined to eat those of us who still walk the earth..."

    Why is it fucked up? Makes perfect sense to me.

    Nah...just the way it's done in rural Tibet.

    the process itself makes sense, kind of a "use all parts of the animal" thing.
    its just seeing the pictures going from start to finish, watching a body get cut/eaten/chopped up, is by all means what I would consider some fucked up viewing material.

    What a western-centred point of view.

    Perhaps you've heard of a little something called "the rest of the world"?

    to meet me face to to face, and then turn 180 degrees, is to know my point of view.

    That's exactly how I would like my funeral.

    What, "facetious as a way of life"?

    Using the vultures to do their thing is fine - it's just a body after all.
    What I don't get is the pseudo-bondage set up in the 7th shot - if you're dead, why do you need to be tied up like that?

    Makes it easier to fit you in the trunk. :p

    lol, speaking from experience?

    Every carry dead weight? It's awkward and floppy and top heavy. a good hog tie will fix that problem.

    I almost barfed when I saw the body cut up.

    Ah, answering a question with an unrelated question - quelle surprise.

    Provocative photos. I have no problems with the actual actions they depict. Totally natural occurrence IMO.
