HOLY FUCK! That really sucks.

I just read the whole article, Cambodia is so fucking backward. That’s really disgusting. I don’t even think the Romans topped that one.

I can’t believe I haven’t seen this before! It’s terrible that 28 people died for a 12 minute entertainment, but shit, I would expect them to do much better than that…

The story is a fake. It has been circulated for quite some time.

I hope they put the rubber match on PPV.

Did you all see where the cambodian government allowed it along as they got 50% of the take?

That is insane.

Funny, it looked so real. But you’re right. If you hit one of the links it takes your browser to the REAL BBC news site, making it even more convincing.

What a relief!

Note that the fmft.net homepage is titled Free Market Fairy Tales.

Yeah! The story would have been much more believable during the Khmer Rouge reign. I have listened to first hand stories about that period. Chilling is an understatement.
