A 23-year-old male from the Dominican Republic spent five days in hospital suffering from an attack of priapism while doctors battled in vain to encourage his hideously empurpled member to succumb to deflatory treatment.

    One has to wonder...

    "...We carried out the usual treatments to encourage the penis to soften."

    Eh? What are those then? Does one of them involve a pretty nurse in the best Benny Hill style?

    Paris would know what to do.

    Six day stiffy?

    My wife'd be happy if I had a six minute stiffy!

    It's true what they say, auld age disnae come itsel!

    I'll bet that experience will curb his enthusiasm for a while.

    No mention of whether his "female friend" was happy with the non fading erection or not!

    Oh come on. This wouldn't have even made it into a medical journal. Please stick to IT related subjects. If I wanted to read stupid stories about super uncontrollable stiffies I'd be browsing a completely different website.

    I can only presume so, otherwise surely his girly would have more likely have kept him locked in the bedroom rather than bundled off to hospital?! :-D

    The usual treatment .....

    Would involve getting some of the blood hideously empurpie-ing his member out of said member. This generally involves a surgeon and something sharp. Whilst a distinctly unpleasant prospect, it beats gangrene followed his tadger dropping off, which would be distinct possibility. Regular grade impotence could result even if it didn't rot off.

    Neither prospect would be too appealling one suspects.

    drugs (the usual suspect - that favourite of spammers everywhere), booze and testosterone, an explosive mixture and a known complication of Friday and Saturday nights at casualty departments everywhere....

    Well lets see what this could have to do with IT.

    He cannot get access to porn on the internet as he cannot get his chair in close enough to the desktop due to his unlucky situation.

    Now think about all the poor old IT admins who were thinking about taking some blue pills before a pint at the local this Friday will now get to think twice.

    There I have tied it in two seperate ways to an IT angle.

    I've heard about this "treatment". They get a really ugly fat nurse to whack it with a cold spoon.

    @AC re it?


    What part of "Dominican lad suffers six-day stiffy " contained in "Bootnotes" led you to believe it might be an IT related story....

    I'm guessing you have a 6 day stiffy growing out of your forehead....

    I agree there is zero IT content, but if Reg didn't bring these stories to our attention we would miss the intelligent and witty comments. I fear that Beavis and Butthead's comments would not have been as good!

    Keep it up Reg, even IT people need a laugh! (or should I leave the "even" out?)

    you'd have taken full advantage of it for 3 days (taking painkillers as neccesary) then headed off to hospital.

    When the genie from the lamp asked him what he wanted, the tired young man misspoke slightly and said "I'm knackered, man- I just want my 40 wanks, you know?"

    Seriously, though- poor guy! That'd hurt!

    I've been exposed to several creative films friends have bought back from their trips abroad which would have cured him quick-smart (I mean seriously, how many people can honestly be into asian amputee midgets?)

    That reminded me that some years back a friend (honest) reported that he had suffered an unwanted, er, uprising during a hospital appointment and the nurse gave him a glass of very cold water. Moments later she very sternly said "you weren't meant to drink that".

    So why did you read it then?

    To all the people complaining about the lack of IT content in this article....

    Why did you read it?

    when you saw the title ‘DOMINICAN LAD SUFFERS SIX-DAY STIFFY’ what IT content exactly were you expecting to find?

    A review of a new Dell Blade Chassis perhaps? Or maybe an insightful article about the benefits that a new processor architecture will bring to low power computing?

    Which bit of ‘DOMINICAN LAD SUFFERS SIX-DAY STIFFY’ did you find misleading?

    Odd. Pictures of Rosie O'Donnell in a thong usually works for this sort of thing.

    erecting a stiff defense for the poor lad

    I feel I have to take a stand for this poor lad, if only because no-one else wood. Just because every Tom, Dick and Harry don't take meds willy-nilly doesn't mean you have to be so hard-on him. "Stick nor stone nowt break his bone" you may say, but remember that the penis mightier than the sword. You would do well to re-member that.
