Waterboarding Video

Got this in email from a friend. No idea how old it is or if it’s already been posted here.

Guy bet that he could endure 15 seconds of the interrogation technique used by the Bush administration on al Qaeda chief Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and Abu Zubaydah.

The army guy said “drownding.” Grr! Twenty bucks says he’s from the Midwest.

Did the camo give him away?

Moving thread from IMHO to MPSIMS.

Youtube is full of people volunteering to be waterboarded or tasered. They always seem surprised at how bad it is. Here’s an idea, don’t volunteer to have bamboo shoots shoved under your fingernails either.

I’m drownding! Call the Amber Lamps!

Or be crucified.

Amber Lamps is a very funny meme, but the circumstances around the source are kind of sad. EBM is a more than a little senile and was obviously baiting the other guy.

This went over my head until I did a little searching. Thanks for the clues to this meme.

Yeah, (if anyone else is curious), it started with this Youtube video (possibly NSFW if you care about language and and old man whooping another guy). If you’ve watched that video in its entirety, then the following image becomes quite hilarious: http://i.imgur.com/TDs71.jpg

Thanks, I was wondering what made it so bad. Now I know it is torture.
