    Link: Initiation Into Manhood - This grueling 11-hour test is how young boys have their manhood tested and become full warriors in the Amazon jungle.

    Probably by the 15th time or so, they just get either used to it, or really really sick of it.

    Dang. Bullet ants? Dang. Was watching a show on TV when a guy took one shot of a bullet ant to the arm and was in extreme pain for like three days.. and these guys do hundreds.. twenty times? Wow... that really is initiation into manhood. Or at least bravery and courage.

    Dont be shocked people, that´s the only part here in Brazil we do that, the other cities do like any part of the world: to prove manhood, you have to work as a trainee until 30years old, with a humilliating

    The Tribal Chief was right about the lack of suffering leading to an unfulfilling life, but I`ll take my suffering in the form of a hard bike ride, they can keep the ants.

    Makes me glad to be a woman. And it said that Ted (was that his name?) promised that he would do it 19 more times... What would happen if he didn`t? I think I could stand being a kid forever if it meant not sticking my hands into those things...

    ok, for everyone who`s complaining about it being 10 minutes instead of 11 hours... the whole ceremony is 11 hours. from the time that they all go out to collect the ants to the time all the boys have worn the gloves and danced and all that. yes, the glove wearing was only 10 minutes, but the whole ordeal was 11 hours.

    Man, that would have to suck. Having your hair pulled out one by one isn`t so bad, it hurts worse to get a tattoo than have your hair pulled like that.
