Deep in the Amazon, the Matis tribe transitions an adolescent boy into a hunting man through 3 stages of pain.

  • In order to enhance his senses and vision, they would take poison and pour it directly into the boys eyes.
  • Next, the boy is subjected to methodical whippings and beatings.
  • Finally, it’s time to induce nausea and diarrhea. This includes burning the skin and then being injected with a poison derived from frog toxin.

For some reason, I would rather drink Colt 45’s to create nausea than take some frog poison.
