I got this idea from a Native American history class I took in college. Apparently this was actually a rite of passage for a certain tribe. They had to hold water in their mouths for a long journey across the desert. My memory on it is fuzzy now and I can’t find any mention of it on the internet. I could be misremembering, but if anyone knows anything about it let me know!
New here? The beginning is a good place to start.
Or, if you're feeling adventurous, go to a Random Comic.
Let me know what you think on Facebook or Twitter, or check out my (so far unrelated, but still cool) store.
