If you were afraid of snakes, would you dare to be massaged by 4 18-foot Burmese pythons? That’s what one brave girl from the Philippines did!

Fear is the mind’s natural reaction to potential threats. People fear heights because falling could kill them. They fear lightning because it’s not exactly pleasant to get struck. They fear wild animals because being mauled by a bear or attacked by a shark would most likely leave them dead (unless they’re Leonardo DiCaprio in The Revenant).

One way to conquer fear, according to many therapists, is to face it head-on. Which is exactly what this young 19 year-old girl from the Philippines did.

Sunshine has always been afraid of snakes.

Sunshine is deathly terrified of snakes. And yet in her mission to overcome that fear, she agreed to something not a lot of people (not even those who aren’t afraid of snakes) would do. She agreed to have a snake massage.

Photographer Ian MacLean initially brought up the idea when he mentioned that the Cebu City Zoo in the Philippines offers a snake massage service.

After a long discussion with the zoo manager, Giovanni Romarate, Sunshine finally agreed to the massage to overcome her fear.

Before the massage, Sunshine was assured that the snake masseuses, four Burmese pythons as big as 18 feet in length, had already been fed a meal of 10 chickens each, so they won’t get any ideas of feasting on her.

As the massage started, Sunshine was trembling. But after a while, she started to feel less threatened, to the point where she was able to pet them and appreciate their beauty.

At the end of the 15-minute massage, she admitted that she actually enjoyed the experience and was no longer afraid of snakes.

Ah, the gift of life. With so many sexually active and fertile individuals on the planet, you'd think that most of them would be well aware of what it takes to create a baby. Yes, almost all of them are aware that when the sperm cell meets the egg cell, a baby can be formed. But unfortunately, there are a lot more ways for those two cells to meet than most people know.

Just so you know, this info comes from Dr. Mary Jane Minkin, who is a reproductive health professor from Yale School of Medicine.

Teeth, scissors, or a razor blade. Keep those away from condoms as they can accidentally puncture the condoms without you knowing. Those notches in the packaging are there for a reason!

Being a parent for around 4 years now, I’d say figuring out how to be a good one is mostly a trial-and-error experience. You see I grew up without a dad while my wife grew up without a mom, so for the most we were left to our own devices to learn parenting on our own. Fortunately, we have good friends, we have good books, and we have the internet so we eventually got the hang of things.

Still, I wouldn’t say we had things easy. For once, carrying an infant was a lifelong fear I had to overcome. I thought babies were really fragile and so I never held one my entire life – until our little boy was born.

Plus there were so many other things to learn such as changing diapers, bathing, burping the baby after feeding, and more. It definitely felt overwhelming and there are instances when I was clueless about what to do.

Airport security, with their x-rays, metal detectors, and random luggage inspections are there for a reason. They protect passengers and airlines from hijackings and terrorist attacks by screening commuters for weapons.

U.S. airport security was further tightened after 9/11 when U.S. Homeland Security established the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to provide enhanced screening for possible weapons.

However, one man has proved the TSA pointless after he assembled a lethal weapon using a hodge-podge of items he purchased from an airport terminal's convenience store.
