WARNING: DO NOT TRY AND DO THIS AT HOME... OR ANYWHERE ELSE FOR THAT MATTER.
This man eats raw and expired meat to 'get high'. Surprisingly he's not the only person that's giving the dangerous trend a whack.
Daniel Larsson, 27, is part of the 'High Meat' movement which, despite the obvious risks, seems to be gaining traction online.
He claims that the smell of rancid meat doesn't bother him and that eating it gives the same effect as drinking two or three beers. Would anyone else rather just drink two or three beers? Can't just be me.
Daniel, a day trader, who lives in Västerås, Sweden, said: "In the beginning, I was a bit sceptical. But my friend has been doing it for over a year.
"I thought that since he didn't get sick, there was enough empirical evidence to say that I wouldn't get sick.
"Then I tried it, and it actually felt pretty good. The first night I tried it, I had some interesting dreams, more vivid and rather odd."
Consuming raw meat can be deadly, but Daniel has never consulted a doctor about his 'High Meat' habit.
He went on to add: "I just did a quick search online." Ah, so he's done his research. Thank God for that.
"I know Google can sometimes exaggerate the effects of everything. I'm not worried about it. I don't eat it very often."
Daniel says he doesn't use just any old beef to get his kicks but only consumed meat from local, grass-fed cows and says he wouldn't trust beef that was imported from abroad.
Once he buys the meat, he stores it in a plastic container in his fridge until it rots and ferments.
He added: "The meat I eat is one or two months expired. Surprisingly, it doesn't smell that bad. I left it in a Tupperware and you could see bacteria colonies growing on it but it really didn't smell that bad.
"I would say it had a characteristic smell, but not a bad smell." Daniel is the gift that keeps on giving.
Unsurprisingly, few people in Daniel's life share his enthusiasm for putrid beef.
He explained: "My girlfriend refuses to try it. She thinks it's disgusting. Many people I know think this is crazy. But I think people live in a bubble that society has proposed to them." No fella, we just want to steer away from food poisoning.
He added: "Sure, maybe high meat looks disgusting but many things we eat today may be seen as disgusting. For example, seafood like shrimp or crabs.
"Often you are eating sea bugs, but under normal circumstances, many people wouldn't eat regular bugs."
Gone off meat becomes contaminated with bacteria or toxins which can make you poorly. Green and grey tints on food are usually a sign of bacteria growth so look out for those - all you non-'High Meat' movement followers.
