    Default Man Nails Testicles To Red Square Cobblestones

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/1...n_4250355.html

    I hope he didn't actually nail his testicles!

    I wonder what government officials had to say about it.

    I would rethink how I should nail stockings for the holidays. Maybe start by finding ones that aren't already full.

    What he did takes a lot of balls. But "rethinking" isn't much of a social protest.

    Putin's signed some pretty mortifying and oppressive legislation recently, but I question if enough Russians understand the duplicitous nature of the Kremlin's politics enough to derive enough meaning from this guy's protest.

    Protest can be counterproductive without forethought.

    He has previously sown his lips together to demonstrate against the jailing of two female members of the Pussy Riot punk band who staged an anti-Kremlin performance inside Moscow's main cathedral in 2011.

    He was also arrested after wrapping his naked body in barbed wire outside a Saint Petersburg government building in May.
    I have concluded that this man is, in fact, insane.

    Indeed. How does causing yourself harm and acting like a freak make an effective "social protest?" Isn't a proper social protest something that's actually related to what you're protesting?

    He's gay. The Kremlin has created anti-gay laws lately.
