That's a badass kid though. As a kid, I'd have been trying to fight to get up and run.

It is interesting to learn the culture and reasons behind what we see as morbid, self destructive behavior.

Yet to them, it's a perfectly acceptable-even proud-tradition.

Neat to see the world from the other side.

I would be okay with this if they didn't enforce this on a child and make it mandatory and the "entrance into manhood". No matter how cool this looks, it is abuse.
