<————— Believe it or not there are mittens scarier than this one.
Well, maybe not scarier, but at least right up there.
As a right of passage, this sadist Amazonian tribe holds a ceremony where tribesmen stick their hands into special mittens filled with venomous ants. Each sting is reported to feel like a gunshot. The participant is expected to keep the mittens on for at least 10 minutes.
To be considered a man, he needs to repeat this 19 more times.
Still think your teen years were tough?
Your handsome and humble servant-
