I have 49, you'd love to look through my feed. 

I've said before how you need to tag me in stuff if you want me to see it, I think I've never seen the 'unread threads' go below 40.

I said 'Shazam is fun'.......Or was it Siam?

Forgive me.......But as nervous as I always was, looking back I definitely enjoyed exams......Facing them.....Opening the paper.....Finding out what you could answer and making the best you could of it.....Overcoming them and putting them behind you. It gave a purpose to all those days spent absorbing. Made me feel more grown up...Hated course work

...Come on People what would you prefer as a rite of passage sitting down to regurgitate some knowledge for 1. 1/2 hours........OR?...

Read on and you'll certainly be happy....Not for those with a tender temperament.

Circumcision and Subincision

Mardudjara Aborigines Subincision illustration male rite of passageImage Enlarger

The rite of passage from boyhood to manhood of the Australian Mardudjara Aborigines consists of two parts: circumcision and sub-incision. Don’t know what sub-incision is? Read on. You’ll be wincing in pain.

When an Aborigine boy comes of age, usually around 15 or 16, the tribal elders will lead the boy to a fire and have him lie down next to it. Tribal members surround the boy while singing and dancing. Another group of men, called the Mourners, wail and cry while the circumcision is performed.

The tribal elder in charge of the circumcision sits on top of the boy’s chest facing his penis. He pulls up the foreskin and twists it so it can be cut off. Two men take turns cutting away the foreskin with knives that they’ve imbued with magical qualities. The boy bites down on a boomerang as the operation takes place.

When the circumcision is complete, the boy kneels on a shield that’s placed over the fire so the smoke can rise up and purify his wound.

While the boy sits there dazed and in pain, the tribal elders tell him to open his mouth and swallow some “good meat” without chewing it. The “good meat” is actually the boy’s freshly removed foreskin. After he’s swallowed a piece of his own wiener, the boy is told that he has eaten “his own boy” and that it will now grow inside him and make him strong.

Now comes the second part of the initiation — the sub-incision. A few months after the circumcision, the tribal elders take the young man again to a fire. An elder sits on the boy’s chest and takes ahold of the boy’s penis. Again, there are singers and men mourning at the ceremony. A small wooden rod is inserted into the urethra to act as a backing for the knife. The operator then takes a knife and makes a split on the underside of the penis from the frenulum (underneath the head of the penis) to near the scrotum.

After the sub-incision, the boy stands above the fire and allows his blood to drip into it. From now on the boy will have to squat when he urinates, just like a woman. In fact, some anthropologists posit that the sub-incision ceremony is done to simulate menstruation, allowing men to sympathize with the females of the tribe.

 

So now for your exam 50yearslate..... You have 1 minute .......Answer the question below:

" Are exams more preferable than the Aboriginal rites of passage"......Yes or No?

 

Sorry I thought this was the 'A'penis is a nice thread'

My bad....Apologies.

Sheesh!! 

I realise that I really am in the wrong place on this board. My fault!

Pointing out that happiness is relative....... Stupid.  

Trying to put into perspective the worries some are facing now namely.......getting worked up about exams? Idiotic!

To suggest you look for the fun in the challenges you'll face in life?? Crazy....... Of course!

@Wigwam_1 I think it was moreso the page of reading about circumcision that was off topic, not you talking about why you like exams.
