Trust Me, I Know What I'm Doing

According to Pikiran Rakyat (literally means "The People's Mind", a major newspaper in West Java Province), Abdul Rohmat, a well-known religious elder in Garut got severely injured by Wan (24), his own teacher. This won't be an unusual case if the victim didn't personally ask Wan to strike him with a sharp blade.

Apparently, last Thursday (January 19th) eight men appeared in Wan's village and asked Wan to teach them the secret art of becoming impervious to blades. The young teacher finally agreed and started reciting a prayer. Suddenly, Abdul Rohmat interrupted and asked his teacher to strike him, claiming that he himself had already mastered the art.

Without any doubts, Wan took a small machette and swung at his pupil's back--and I quote--"five times." The blade sliced Abdul easily, noted an eyewitness. Everyone, including Wan, was surprised. They brought Abdul to the hospital and barely saved his life.

Five times? I don't know about you, but I would've stopped at the first failure. What exactly happened there?

Slash! Blood splashing out. "Don't worry! This usually happens." Slash! More blood splashing out. "It doesn't hurt as much as it looks." Slash! Now it starts gushing out. "We'll get it right this time." Slash! "Eventually." Slash! "Uhm... a little help here?"

Though we have to admit that the teacher's trust to his own pupil is beyond words, meta.

Kinda makes you miss good ol' Indonesia, mariskova?

One thing makes me wonder; we often hear about this so-called secret art, becoming invincible and all. But how come we never see headlines such as: "The Invincible Robber Strikes Bank Indonesia!"
