Anyone expecting something disturbing should have read post #15 in this thread

All this talk made me think about the concept too. Poop is just waste. No nutrition there unless the "head" gets some kind of supplement that survives the journey out of his butt for the second person. The caboose would probably die off from malnutrition. As for water, the doc could pass water through the nose of 2 and 3 or use an IV, I guess.

This would make excellent discussion from the director on the DVD commentary. Not after dinner, of course.

Definitely the most messed up way to use IKEA drawings.

I don't think it works to take water in through the nose. Does it?

No, dung beetles can live exclusively on poop. And dogs have been known to snack on a fecund feces treat on occaision. It is a matter of flooding the head with so many nutrients that the middle of the centipede sheds enough nutrients in their stool to keep the tail alive. Which would mean non-stop snacking.

And water through the nose would lead to drowning. IV would definately work though.

There are several scenes where they show them with an IV hooked up. If I recall correctly, they were hooked up when kept in the cage. Water through the nose would really complicate breathing, unless he just gave them a drink once in a while.

I actually found myself at one point thinking how bad it would be (as if the situation wasn't bad enough as it was) if one of them developed a cold and had to suffer through a runny nose.

The last time I tried eating poop, I spent 2 weeks in a hospital. The doctor told me that eating poop is poisonous. I told him "but it's just my own poop? I thought it's just poisonous if you eat someone else's poop?" He said all poop is poisonous. Well, thank god we learn from our mistakes!

Re: Human Centipede (What?)

Only one way to really solve our dilemmas, we must make our own human centipede! I recommend going out and finding as many ex-girlfriends and current boyfriends for our experiment as we can.

You must be joking. Just the thought of eating your own shit is nasty.

Well in some cases that may not be possible to even start with or even halfway get there.

Dung beetles are insects so we're talking about something completely different. Yeah, dogs might eat cat poop or their own but not exclusively as you said.

Even I have an ex, but our parting was mutual. I was hoping others could volunteer such people. If not that, just grab some sorority girls and frat guys from the local university. Grab pledges and tell them it's part of an initiation ritual, they might actually have experienced worse in their lives.

Meh. There's nothing in poop that you didn't already ingest or have in your body. That being said, a diet of poop isn't exactly as nutrient rich as say, a diet in paper. It could be done short term. With the IV's previously mentioned, you may even last long enough to die of starvation instead of dehydration! And I know that I'm laying too much on a movie plot. Just something that is irking me.

Once you get past the smell, it's great - it's tastes like extra nutty sea urchin.

Maybe if the front person was fed something that was tasty and nutritious, it wouldn't be bad.

You know if they sewed them in a big circle it would be like a perpetual pooping machine.

So that would be a literal case of "same shit, different day."
