Sup Travellers?! Over the years we've seen some really crazy forms of protests but a Russian artist's form of protest is just PLAIN NUTS!!! The BBC reports that the 29 year old man named Pyotr Pavlensky stripped naked and then nailed his scrotum to the cobblestone of Moscow's Red Square Sunday afternoon, just outside of the Lenin Mausoleum. 

He sat on the cold floor with his nailed nuts for about an hour before the Police came to terms with the ballsy situation sprawled out over Red Square. They took Pavlensky to the hospital and he had faced up to 15 days in jail, on charges including "explicit contempt for society accompanied by swearing in public," and "humiliation." He was, however, released on Monday. Pavlensky called the piece "Fixation," and described it this way: "It's not a bureaucratic mess that deprives society of its ability to act, but fixation on our own defeats and losses that nails us to the Kremlin's pavement stronger and stronger, creating an army of apathetic idols out of people."

Everyone has a right to fight for their rights but nailing your nuts to the ground is not considered fighting for your rights. That's considered CRAZY AS SH*T!!! What makes it even worse is that this isn't the first time that Pavlensky injured himself in public. His previous works have included sewing his lips together in solidarity with Pussy Riot, and wrapping himself in barbed wire outside of Moscow's parliament. This man is a sucker for hurting himself. Why go through the pain man? Is it really worth it? No one else thinks that it's worth it. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
