Bullet Ant Manhood

After doing some searches this week about the true nature of manhood I came across a news story about Mother Nature’s kings of pain. At the top of the list is the “bullet ant.”

This little insect packs a punch, according to the Schmidt Sting Pain Index, which rates it as a 4.0+ describing it as “pure, intense, brilliant pain. Like fire-walking over flaming charcoal with a 3-inch rusty nail in your heel.”

In some crazy tribe found in Brazil, to become a warrior one must endure wearing gloves of these raging little beasts for 10 minutes at a time. But not just once… he has to do it twenty times. That’s how you become a man in that culture.

  1. hmmm…. and yet we say that women are biologically predisposed to be irrational and therefore should not be permitted to be in leadership positions.

    this matches my general sentiment that the underrepresentation of women in politics is possibly due to their decreased likelihood of suffering from numerous pathologies that make doing something crazy like running for public office seem like a good idea.
