Can you get cancer from eating someone?

If someone was to have cancer and you consumed their flesh. Would eating their cancerous dna/cells mix with your dna/cells and cause cancer?

Why dont people with terminal illnesses attempt to assassinate politicians/public figures/businessmen who they deem dangerous and evil?

If someone passionately believes in their political views, and considering all other options are exhausted, no money for cryo preservation for possible future life, no possibility no matter how slim of recovery. Its completely over, I see no reason why someone would not, say, hypothetically, want to at least attempt assassination of someone who they deem evil and dangerous to society. Someone who they thought deserved it and needed to die.

I am honestly shocked that this isn't extremely common behaviour, much less UNHEARD of, which it currently is. You NEVER hear of a terminally ill person attempting assassinations, domestic terrorism, anything. Why?

If you could get an operation where your internal sexual organs could be spliced with an animal's for the benefit of your health and sexual enjoyment- would you consider it?

Content warning: This did happen and it didn't go well. This is one of those things you don't unlearn. Abandon all ye hope who enter and all of that. It doesn't happen anymore and maybe that's all you need to know.

...Because people did more than consider it.

TD;LR Quack "doctor" John R Brinkley used to transplant goat testicles into human sexual organs. Note he did not completely swap them them out, he inserted them in places such as testicle sacs or an area approximate to the ovaries. It didn't benefit patients at all. The above question is a hypothetical. if it did actually work and wasn't utter bullshit.

The benefits Binkley promised were a mixed bag as is the case with a lot of "snake oil" inventions. He claimed it cured anything from male virility to cancer in women.

Here is an older 2002 article that claims an experiment was successful where testis tissue was successfully grafted into mice and resulted in working sperm production.

And yes I know I'm fully tin foiling hat-ing this but if it did work and hopefully an ethical way to do it was found an example of a good thing that could come out of it would be that it could help men who can't reproduce for some reason or another.

People who got this surgery from Brinkley didn't neccesarily all need its benefits. Some were only interested in being sexually enhanced in some way by the procedure.

But if any of this was actually effective, would you consider it?

Can a woman become pregnant so many times that it has negative effects on the her health? If so, how many continuous pregnancies would it take to lead to her death?

The circumstances I'm referring to here involved the woman getting pregnant again as soon as possible after giving birth.

What's the furthest an undercover cop (or similar) has gone?

Has anyone legally undercover ever been sentenced for crimes committed while covertly working for law enforcement?

Have undercover units ever been found to participate too much in the crime world? Homicides? Illegal weapon smuggling? Sex crimes?

I assume there are legal protections for "reasonable" behaviours, minor drug trafficking/use, small traffic offences etc., but have those limits ever been tested by a particular case?

If a 6 year old child was drowned in a tub by their 30 year old mom, how long would it take for water to dry?

How much water would accumulate on the ground from the struggle?

I feel like I have to give context for this despite the subreddit; I’m writing a horror novel and there is a criminal investigation about a mom drowning her kid.

How does a stoma affect sex?

If my understanding is correct, people with stomas do not use their bowels. Would this make their anus totally clean?

Are they better candidates for mess-free anal sex at any given time?

What are the origins of more extreme fetishes?

To add a little context I was recently thinking about the blueberry fetish. For those unaware its a fetish originating from the old Charlie and the Chocolate Factory film in which for some people the blueberry scene was a sexual awakening causing them to develop a blueberry fetish where they're turned on by inflation content where the person being inflated turns blue. I know it's weird to bring up but it made me think as I found it very interesting as we had a very direct answer to its origins, it was a scene in a movie with shocking and unintended consequences. Of course, I didn't stop thinking there though as I began to question the origins of other fetishes. Some I could easily rationalize such as those with kinks for obesity, amputations, things like that which may be odd to others but not insane. Its not hard to rationalize how someone may see a fat person and be aroused. My question becomes more complex though when you consider what I'm calling "extreme" fetishes. By extreme I mean things which simply do not exist in nature, the blueberry fetish being a good initial example as there's no rational for how it came to be outside of media. If Charlie and the Chocolate Factory were never made no one would ever even consider being aroused by that. Another example would be the related inflation, as stated I can see someone a thousand years ago being attracted to an obese person but inflation is its own whole thing. Bloating might come close to inflation but its just too different there's no real natural way I can rationalize inflation coming to be the same way I can a fat fetish. Another one might be the furry fetish, I honestly have an easier time rationalizing the existence of fart fetishes over this one as at least farts a real human thing we naturally encounter, but sexy anthropomorphic animals how did people start getting attracted to that?? My current assumption for how extreme fetishes come to be is just the same way as the blueberry kink, one piece of media accidentally spawning a whole kink although I only have the Blueberry kink to evidence this claim. I'm curious though if I'm correct as well as if I am correct what are these pieces of media that originated these kinks? I know its kinda weird to be this invested in the origin of fetishes but it really is wild to think of for me. Like imagine accidentally inventing a kink and defining the sexuality of millions to come??

How difficult is it to strangle someone?

I’m aware that it isn’t as quick as cinematic portrayal, but how difficult is it actually? Would it require brute strength that is higher than average? Typically people only talk about cases where women are strangled, but how hard would it be to strangle a grown man? And how large is the difference between difficultly in strangling and average man and woman? In some of the tv I’m watching lately there’s a lot of scenes where people are being choked out and it got me curious. All hypothetical questions of course.

Can someone be arrested/forcibly admitted for refusing to drink or eat? (USA)

Can someone be arrested or forcibly admitted for refusing to eat or drink water? Can someone force someone to drink/eat?

This is not a suicide question, I am genuinely curious what American law says about this.

If a dog is put down for biting someone, is it still allowed to be given the same sendoff as one that passes away for a harmless reason? For example, can its ashes be returned to its owner for a funeral and/or burial?

Or does the biting result in automatic trashing in a dumpster or similar as part of the punishment?

Expanding on a response to the other dog-related thread yesterday, thanks /u/Wii_wii_baget for your earlier input

What would happen if a person fell into a particle accelerator?

This has been on my mind for a while.. Recently I read an article about it which said some person was once exposed to a proton close to light speed.. which led to a small hole in his head which didn't affect much at the beginning..but then had serious consequences after a few years..

That made me wonder.. what if a person fell whole and completely into one? (Like many beams of proton hit him at once)

Would he become a body full of holes.. or would his body just explode?

DAE think women who went to jail for murdering their boyfriend's were victims of dv or infidelity?

Edit: It's too bad I have to make this simple for adults but this post is not about men being the victim. Men can be the victim, not on this post. If you don't understand why, reread the last sentence.

Women reacting to being abused by their male partner happens (which is more common than the other way around, statistically.)

Men falling victim to a head injury while playing sports and then becoming a murderer happens (and is more common than the other way around, statistically)

If you're sad this post is not about you being the victim as a man, please make your own. You knew what it was when you read the title. Don't guilt trip me in the comments for not making a post about you...

As a kid, I spent a lot of time in inpatient because I was being abused by my family. I was in inpatient for homicidal and suicidal ideation

One of my abusers were my brother and of course, he mistreated women. Led them on for ages and never had a partner as per mom's request (up until his 30s)

Now he's a child predator (and if you know, you know, the police don't care proof or not)

So I wonder if women like Jodi, the woman who locked her ex in a suitcase, and other women who are now imprisoned for murdering their exes were fed up victims of dv

I think about how women experience psychosis during menstruation, menopause, and when we're postpartum (which also landed me in inpatient)

I am now coming out of a relationship in which he led me on for 10 years, promising marriage, then screamed at me for the holidays and his mother joined in telling me he loves his dead ex and posted her. He hearted the photo then ghosted me after 10 years

And being a women who experiences psychosis and had nothing but good intentions, what would you really expect

I got help. I've also been in therapy for 10 years but obviously these are my thoughts

//Not part of my question, just a message:

And to any girls who feel like they might go to jail over handling their abusive boyfriend, let another girl do it.

My moms ex pushed his exes into beating his ass. My mom used to beat my dad and they'd both go to jail for it. Both my dad and her ex died from stds, not taking their meds (like ur mentally ill "bipolar" bf... they do the same with their antibiotics)

Died trying to leave and cheat.. both of them. They don't take care of their health one way or another whether it was the way they ate or just sitting around with stds and died in the arms of the woman who made them miserable.

Don't let it be you, don't risk your freedom, you know you deserve more than him and more in life. Just hope and pray everyday that he dies a horrible slow death

My dad was puking up blood and eventually couldn't even keep his clothes on when he was dying. My mom's bf became delusional and started giving his money away so everyone he abused ate good while he was dying.

I believe in God and I believe God sees all of the widows, children, and otherwise struggling people who these men selfishly abused and The Bible says God does not take these things lightly. I believe that's why they abused children and widows then died a slow, horrible death next to the one they hated

Good luck to you ladies //

How long would it take meal worms to eat a human body?

I don’t know if this has ever been asked before but I’ve been seeing those videos of meal worms eating other foods and curious how long it would take or estimate how long it would take for mealworms to fully eat a human body or if they even would?

What happens when a rabbit tries to have sex with the wrong thing? (the wrong side of another rabbit, the wrong animal, etc)

Like rabbits frequently mount the head of another rabbit, and mount chickens, cats, dolls, all kinds of things. Does the rabbit orgasm in such cases?
