Mandarin Ducks: Rite of Passage

Imagine this. You were born, and you grew up happily, fiddling with toys and your siblings. At age seven, where it is a watershed age for a child’s life, you enter a rite of passage. The rite of passage consists of lining up on a twenty-storey building, and jumping down. You have some leave foliage to help you cushion your fall, but well, there are just leaves.

That’s pretty much the standard for this community – this community of, well, mandarin ducks.
