Zoykes. I've toured many an ancient Mayan city in Mexico. Ever stand next to a bottomless pool that was used for sacrificing children? Yeesh! They'd load them down with gold and jewels, then shove them over the edge to sink and drown...in hope of rain!

I get chills just thinking about it, and it was totally creepy standing next to one.

Yeah. People are going to need extremely strong stomachs for this one!

Hmmm, I wonder what the Mayan word for "choice" was....
