I was pressured into performing this frightening and ugly ritual recently, and fortunately for me, nothing happened. Although, the anxiety from the experience did affect my blood pressure to a certain degree.
When you think about it, there really is no reason to do this other than to see for oneself that the outcome is real. There's no payoff, like receiving some candy or toy (would I do it for that? Of course! I'm not a complete idiot.). The only reward you receive is either a bloody nose, an ear ripped off the side of your head, or dragged through the mirror into some hellish plane of existence with a person you wouldn't want to spend any time with.
To those of you who pressured me into engaging in this bizarre ceremony, NO, I will not do it again.
The only nightmare I'll engage in is the complex recipe of the cocktail.
(Okay, if you can promise me there will be an awesome prize, then I'll think about it.)
