Well, it said vagina and breats, so I assume they meant one woman's vagina and some undetermined amount of breasts.

I'm struggling to think of any social occasion for which that would be appropriate dress.

He was the one who made items of clothing and various other things like lampshades using people's ears, skin and other body parts, even though it was never actually proved that he killed more than 2 people.

I thought he was as famous as Ted Bundy or Charles Manson.



That's what I thought too, I figured it would be hard to forget.

Yeah, apparently Gein inspired the movie Psycho, and some of the crimes in Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Silence of the Lambs.

This may sound like I'm trying to humanize him, but I wonder how awful he really was.
I mean, he did kill a few people, but otherwise he just exhumed bodies, took various parts and had a rather unhealthy obsession with his dead mother. Alot of serial killers probably killed more people than he did.
I know collecting people's dearly departed's body parts isn't the most respectable passtime, but he didn't hurt anyone (in other words, what the dead people's relatives don't know, won't hurt them).
He was just a mentally disturbed guy who killed a few people and happened to have an uncommon hobby.

I'm not rationalizing it, nor am I trying to explain him, but just because he did unusual things with dead people doesn't mean that he's so much worse than any other serial killer out there.

At least the serial killers do their work themselves and cannot rely on armed forces to do it for them :roll: .
I wonder if GWB would have had the guts to do the Texas executions he ordered himself. And I mean not just pressing a button. :?
That Gein was not executed put put into an asylum could be seen as following Escargot's line of reasoning.

That was not reasoning, it was speculation.
If someone's proved insane in court, they can't be executed. Digging up bodies and using their parts to make clothing and stuff isn't the work of a sane man by a long shot. So unless the law is to change, there's no way they could have executed him.

Not sure that insanity at that time was regarded as an execution blocker in the state where it occured. Would have to look up the date of the universal ban by the Supreme Court (there are forces in the USA that still work on overturning that decision or try to get around it, btw).
I did not intend to make "reasoning" to mean "arguing for" but more like "putting thought into". Sorry, if there is a misunderstanding.

Heh... thanks.

Back to the thread.

A: What? I'm sorry I was over there. Did you just say you were a fast cook? Are we to believe that boiling water soaks into a grit faster in your kitchen than any place on the face of the earth?
B: I don't know.
A: Perhaps the laws of physics cease to exist on your stove. Were these magic grits? Did you buy them from the same guy who sold Jack his beanstalk beans?

^^I just love that movie.
