How to Clear a Lake from Fish in Minutes (4 pics + 1 video)

Posted in Pictures   24 Jan 2011   / 15661 views

The Dogon people of Mali can fish in the sacred Lake Antogo only once a year. On the appointed day, hundreds of fishermen grab baskets and fish in a hurry, clearing the entire lake in minutes. This is an interesting and unusual ritual.

Is it Dogons that know some things about Sirius? I think Erich von Daeniken wrote about them.

They're trying to catch some water*elons and chickens, but they don't know the only food in this lake are fishes. (water*elon is a stop-word WTF??) It's izismile not politically_correct(dot)com for god's sake.

How can people joke about this or blame the men ? i mean i do jokes that are limit sometimes but you who probably never experienced hunger and deprivations to say such stupidity. (luckmann, mtjs, bino,) For once 2coolfor ice is right, those fish would die and rot, so it's better to eat them when they aren't too badly damaged.

Didn't anybody read the damn description. Its a ritual, nothing to do with them being hungry or anything else. If those stupid danes can kill hundreds of defenceless dolphins as a coming of age ritual, why can't these guys do a little bit of fishing???
