STOCKHOLM, N.Y. (AP)Authorities say a northern New York man had his friend shoot him in the leg with a rifle because he wanted to know what it feels like to be shot. State police in St. Lawrence County say the shooting occurred around 5 p.m. Sunday in the rural town of Stockholm when 25-year-old Shawn Mossow of neighboring Norfolk relented to his friend’s repeated requests and shot him once in the right leg with a .22-caliber rifle. The 24-year-old man from Norfolk is expected to make a full recovery. Police haven’t released his name. Mossow was charged with reckless endangerment. He’s being held in the county jail on $10,000 bail. It could not be immediately determined if he had a lawyer.

First off this doesn’t surprise me one bit. Curiosity killed the cat, folks. And it also gets the upstate New York meth addicts to shoot each other in the legs. I can remember being an idiot like this. Only difference was I was like 9 years old and in elementary school and not a grown ass man with a gun. I remember wanting to have a cast so bad. I straight up wanted to break a bone. Kids would miss a little bit of school and then come it with a cool colored cast and get everyone to sign it. Looked awesome. I also wanted braces. I felt like I was some little baby without braces. Some loser with baby teeth. Didn’t even go to the orthodontist. Didn’t even have cool colored rubber bands all up in my mouth. Felt like a total homo. Glasses too. Some people called kids with glasses nerds but I always got the inkling a pair of spectacles made bitches wet.

Even now as a grown up, you think I’m not intrigued by a little auto-erotic asphyxiation? Of course I fuckin am! Dudes are always lynching themselves while they beat their dicks. Shit apparently feels so good that guys risk their lives and end up dangling from a belt with their dick in their hand. You think that doesn’t make me wanna know “how it feels?” But I’m also not trying to end up dead. Casts and braces and glasses and gunshot wounds and jerk off sessions with your neck in a noose – things that all pique your curiosity but are better left alone.
