Stressed? Depressed? Infertile? Set your crotch on fire

To help relieve themselves from a variety of ailments ranging from stress to depression, indigestion, diarrhoea and infertility, the good folks of Fujian in China have been happily setting themselves on fire.

Various herbs are made into a rope of sorts, placed on a willing patient’s body and covered up with plastic wrap.

Two sufficiently wet towels are then placed over the rope before alcohol is poured onto the towels and the patient set dramatically ablaze.

While selfies are optional, patients might want to ensure there is adequate water supply nearby should matters go awry.
