Every once in awhile a story comes along of a woman scorned that is so terrifying we have to cover it, despite the fact that we want to stick our heads in the sand and pretend it never happened. The story of 33-year-old Alik D. is one such cautionary tale.

The Russian man had recently decided to leave his girlfriend of two years after she had been pressuring him into marriage. She suggested a farewell dinner, during which she plied Alik with a heavy meal and heavier drinking.

When he decided to take a satisfied nap, she tied several firecrackers to his penis and lit them, sending Alik to intensive care where he is currently fighting for his life.

The girlfriend will face at least 12 years imprisonment. While we're not sure how long it would take to truly punish her for this heinous crime, we are absolutely certain this isn't what Alik meant when he asked his girlfriend for a final "bang."
