When we see something supremely messed up, our first reaction isn't usually to think, "Gee, I'd sure like to know more about whatever the hell that is."
Most of the time, it's a hearty "NOPE" and a desperate search to find the fastest route away from it. But we'd also be lying to ourselves if we claimed we don't get morbidly curious sometimes.
We may ask ourselves why we're doing it, but some intense sights just transfix us enough that we know we won't be able to stop thinking about them until we answer those nagging questions in our minds.
But rather than look for this elusive context in places that may show us even worse things, it's better just to get it all here.
