I'm quite sure that I personally have administered spankings that hard and been thanked for it (awww yeah). With a paddle that wide, it's very difficult to do lasting damage -- a cane can do damage because it's narrow enough to crush nerves, and even so, with a cane the real danger is in accidentally hitting the upper thighs (where there is less fat to pad the muscle, bone, and nerves). Granted, the guy on the receiving end probably felt pretty miserable for a week or two -- might have actually bruised the muscle, which would've kept him out of sports for a bit. But the human body can take a remarkable amount of hurtin', expecially on the rear end (if you think about it, any time a person falls down on his ass, he hits the ground with more force than that paddle ever could). Sure, you've got the right to think it wasn't funny. If it really bothers you, I would imagine you could make sure you're able to go through your entire life without getting spanked that hard. However, it is the responsibility of the injured party to report the injury, if there actually was one. It is -not- the responsibility of every random person who finds a photograph on the Internet to report an assault that might not have even happened -- there's no evidence to suggest it's assault, no evidence to suggest it wasn't consensual (in fact, plenty of evidence to suggest otherwise), and no evidence to prove it wasn't Photoshopped. Regardless, if it -was- the responsibility of everyone who sees the picture to report this incident, you're on the list of people who've seen it (and you probably know just as much about where it came from as we do). So it's as much your responsibility as anyone else's...and when it comes down to it, it's not your responsibility at all. Nor is it ours. I'm sure Mr. Priceless appreciates you looking out for him, though. /dev/null
