Yep, It's That Time Of The Year

LGF has this on the yearly ritual bloodbath for the Shiites

I'm guessing tackle football on asphalt ain't got shiite on this.

Here’s one of the all-time most disturbing Ashura images, from the 2003 festivities in Pakistan, as a man shows his grief over the death of Imam Hussein, the grandson of Mohammed, by whipping himself (and anyone stupid enough to get close) with a giant metal claw.

Doesn't Hadith 2.375 say that the dead are punished if the living weep for them?
