While I've seen it done, I never part take, supposedly it makes men more viral, had a bottle with a dead snake, looked like a cobra or something, in a bottle of alcohol , none would take a dare to take a sip tho, reminiscent of embalming fluid from biology lab..yuck!!.

One time in Mexico City on their subway, buddy rolled around on broken glass with no shirt on as a way to beg for change, guess something they learn early in these countries......just thought I'd pass that tidbit along. Lol

I am not impressed.

Charlie Sheen had Tiger's blood... yet ended up nuts and in a bad way..

I'd love to see the reaction on Mattis' face while all this 'shocking OH MY GOD' skill was going on!

Probably smiled slightly.

let me clear this up for you guys.

sounds like they were demonstrating Indonesian Debus. Debus is a darker side to Indonesian warrior culture where warriors believing in shamanistic beliefs (usually martial artists) work themselves into a trance and do feats of being impenetrable to pain. they'll maim themselves and keep going. cut their tongues and laugh maniacally while spitting out the blood. that sorta thing.

it's a part of Indonesian culture. I've seen it on occasion in pentjak silat (a indonesian martial art) demonstrations. its considered one of the less rational side of things in that community and even masters shake their heads at the validity of it. but still a part of their culture.


as for mattis. he probably laughed at their feeble attempts to act manly and then when the cameras were gone captured a wild cobra bit it's head off and slurped the raw venom down while smiling. the man's a hard core bad ass. none of what was in that Debus demonstration unsettled him one inch.

although I wouldn't laugh off the silat Debus guys. they are pretty raw straight out of the west javanese jungle types and cutting to little bitty pieces some mma guy with a golak or parang wouldn't even be a second thought to them. they good ones doing the real thing literally do have killing down to a stone cold art. a few of SF guys learn some of the darker stuff from them for a reason. especially if they've been exposed to south east Asia in some way whether it was from tours or just temporary assignments.


Well that just chilled me to my bones lol. Don't get on the wrong side of those guys!

Good thread!Guess it’d be entertaining but that’s all. My money would be on the Seals or Russian special forces every time.Saw a kick boxing champ against a marine on YouTube once The kick boxer starting showing off doing hand stands and crap so the Marine timed him stepped in and one punched his lights out. The snake blood now, in Thailand I saw people drink cobra gall bladders and blood as a aphrodisiac. Why anyone young needed that in Pattaya beach is beyond me, lol

That's straight up animal cruelty
Whilst i have no choice but to kill the poisonous snakes that occasionally enter my household in summertime,i think what they are doing is gratuitous cruelty just for the sake of looking tough.It doesn't fool me either,drink the blood of anything,roll around in anything sharp,i put one between your eyes you're still dead pal
