    I was watching a documentary the last night called "Human Planet" they went to different parts of the world seeing how people lived. Anyway they went to Ethiopia and men from different tribes were "Stick fighting".. Jesus these guys were just whacking each other with these huge sticks until someone admitted defeat and so on.It was crazy.
