Hey guys, I was wondering what size needles you use for The Brahmo Thread Mystery. It says to use a long one, but I can't find any skinny long ones. Do you guys have any suggestions?

Explore surgical supply outlets...The ones made in India will probably serve you best. You have a lot to learn...

When I'm trying this...using the Swami Mantra method, I manage to get the needle in about 5 mm and then it just seems to stop, and no matter how hard I try it won't go any further. Does anyone that performs this have any tips? exact needles they use etc. Thanks alot

Don't try a stunt you read about in a book.

Ok. I am gonna answer this, and I probably shouldn't. If you are gonna do something this silly...Ok...you are a fool.

Anyways, (for the purposes of academia): there are items actually INVENTED for just this purpose! It is called SUTURE and the needle is already attached to the "string"! I would not recommend braided suture, such as silk, but rather prolene (or some other non-braided monofilament [these are similar to nylon])on a straight needle (as opposed to a curved needle). I would use something no thinner than 3X0 (three "Oh") prolene, probably best to use 2X0 (two "Oh"). The thicker the suture, the less likely it is to brack as you pull the thread through your skin. You needle needs to be new, clean and SHARP and your skin should be prepped under sterile conditions and the entire length of suture being pulled through should be sterile as well. I would avoid braided suture because: 1) its braids make it difficult to pull through the skin and 2) the cracks and crevicies are a nidus for infection and 3) Silk is organic, which people tend to react more to, rather than prolene or other non-organic monofilament.

If drug addicts can get a hold of drugs and weapons dealers can get a hold of full autos, then I am sure that if you look hard enough you can get a hold of what you need. You don't have to be a doctor to buy suture.
