Mike is ViralNova's resident Editor of the Weird. If it makes you say "OMG! That's terrible!!!" then Mike probably wrote it. Despite the subject of his articles Mike is surprisingly well adjusted. When he's not writing, he's making music, performing, and producing podcasts.

When witnessing the customs of other cultures, it's essential to keep an open mind. There's certainly no shortage of things that we Westerners might find shocking to witness. The important thing is to keep your judgement in check and put things in perspective.

In America, for example, we have plenty of our own weird customs that people might find bizarre and terrifying. So just keep those things in mind as you watch the following video of these parents in India who are forcing their children to roll around in cow dung as part of a ritual that they believe will prevent disease.

Just imagine the smell...
