Fact of the Month

The Mayans believed eating earwax would bring fertility.

One of the grossest facts I've come across... yuck!

They used to eat a lot of stuff for fertility. In the movie Apocalypto, one person is asked to eat the raw balls of a freshly hunted tapir as he is infertile. :)

Tapir balls sound ok. Tiger's balls are considered to be an aphrodisiac in China. But earwax?! Eeewwww!

@ Kitta - They were playing a joke on him. Even if they did eat 'it'(what you've described in graphic detail), we can't blame them . Atleast they knew where the problem lay in the first place.If they could perform complex surgeries I think they'd have replace his 'it' with the tapir's 'it'. offcourse this is all conjecture.

BTW, you remember the next scene where he rubs red chillies ?!
