    The name of the ritual translate into English something like “Hey, lets prank this guy for a change”.

  2. I was wondering if he was going to break down and cry at some point and I wasn’t disappointed! I’ve seen this done to several people on several different nature/anthro shows and it looks absolutely terrible.

    That little voice is really a dumb shit sometimes.

    What happens to these ants when the ritual is done?

    For some reason – this was LOLsy.

    Personally, I draw the line at the little Pseudomyrmex experiment I once did.
