Setting Evidence

“The morning of June 27th was clear and sunny, with the fresh warmth of a full-summer day; the flowers were blossoming profusely and the grass was richly green. The people of the village began to gather in the square, between the post office and the bank, around ten o'clock; in some towns there were so many people that the lottery took two days and had to be started on June 27th, but in this village, where there were only about three hundred people, the whole lottery took less than two hours, so it could begin at ten o'clock in the morning and still be through in time to allow the villagers to get home for noon dinner.”

  • Old Man Warner snorted. "Pack of crazy fools," he said. "Listening to the young folks, nothing's good enough for them. Next thing you know, they'll be wanting to go back to living in caves, nobody work any more, live hat way for a while. Used to be a saying about 'Lottery in June, corn be heavy soon.' First thing you know, we'd all be eating stewed chickweed and acorns. There's always been a lottery," he added petulantly. "Bad enough to see young Joe Summers up there joking with everybody."

ant initiation
Ant Initiation
  • On the Amazon, the boys of this tribe must wear gloves containing bullet ants (Paraponeraclavata) for ten minutes at a time and repeat it nineteen times. They must endure many stings, the pain of which is near unbearable, to prove themselves. The ants are so called because the pain their bites inflict are supposedly of the same intensity as a bullet wound. The Schmidt Sting Pain Index rates it as a 4+ and describes it as ‘waves of burning, throbbing, all-consuming pain that continues unabated for up to 24 hours’
baby throwing ritual
Baby Throwing Ritual
  • A civil rights campaigner, RanjanaKumari, in New Delhi continues to protest about a centuries old tradition best described as ‘baby throwing’. This ritual is performed at various shrines in West India such as Solapur. The toddlers are blessed and dropped up to fifty feet from the roof down to a sheet, held taut by people, below. The ritual supposedly brings good health and prosperity to the child’s families.
  • This activity is practised by Hindus and Muslims alike and has been a tradition for the last 700 years.
yanshui beehive rockets festival
Yanshui Beehive Rockets Festival
  • In Taiwan, the largest Lantern Festival known as the Beehive Rocket Festival will run for two days. Whereas the Pingsi Sky Lantern Festival in the north of Taiwan is characterised by a romantic, peaceful atmosphere, the Beehive Rocket Festival to the south is famous for its over the top excitement and noise. Lin Yi-Ren, this year’s organiser for the event in Yanshuim Tainan City was quoted as saying it ‘reveals the vigorous lifestyle’ of the south. He continued by saying that ‘800,000 firecrackers will be fired at and into the crowds’ like angry bees. 2011 marks the centenary of the Republic of China and this is their way of celebrating the event. There is certainly risk involved by being in the crowd as flames and burning debris explode towards you at high speed.
