    well at least my first question was answered. Who the hell has human skin just laying around to be stolen? But the follow up questions....not so much.

    Your pride without your hoodie.

    I'm really curious what the black market does with the stolen skin graft.

    Haha.. in my opinion, he is a badly misunderstood man despite his crimes. The power of media is sad sometimes.

    350k for cost price hot dogs? Calculating sales price for profit, that's probably more than 1 million hot dogs. Major business. Haha.

    I know the story. I also know how his mother basically messed up his mental well being since he was a kid. This point is very seldom/never pointed out when bringing out the facts you posted. He wasn't even a normal thinking person by the time he was a teenager because of his up bringing. But all people remember is how he dug up graves and "decorated" his apartments. It's always the end point people nowadays want, never the process.

    You bringing out how Hollywood made movies loosely based on him is EXACTLY why I said power of media is sad.

    Yes, he did murdered 2 women and did shitty things. But plenty of normal people have done ALOT worse with ALOT less mental fuk by their parents. But most aren't as "notorious" as Ed. Are they? :D

    When you're digging up graves, murdering people and making skin lamps to decorate your cabin in the woods... 'The Process' tends to fall by the wayside. It also doesn't matter how bad your childhood was... It's no coincidence that so many movies were based on him. He was a legit monster....
