The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Epilepsy And Beer Goggles

A Muslim man is keeping his adult son chained in the basement. The young man's father claims the boy is possessed by jinn:

A Saudi man has been chained in a basement apartment for more than six years because his father believes he is possessed by an evil female genie.

'When he has fits he has convulsions and his entire body twists and his eyes become completely white,' said the father of the 29-year-old man who has been identified only as Turki.

What's a father to do? Why, what any good Muslim would do when a child is having health problems - take him to a Mosque:

When Turki first began behaving bizarrely, his father took him to local Muslim clerics to recite the Koran over him.

Their diagnoses?

One cleric advised him to shackle his son’s arms and legs in chains and read the Koran to him.

Yeah, that'll fix him right up...

When he was younger, Turki's father was also possessed by a jinn, though it is uncertain if it was a same jinn:

Turki’s father claimed he himself was afflicted by a jinn at the age of nine and suffered for more than four decades until it was exorcised by a cleric.

'I used to see a woman who would at times appear very beautiful and at times extremely ugly,' he said.

Infidels are often possessed by these jinn, only we name them "beer goggles".
