A man in New Zealand, received many bee stings on his backside after sitting on a beehive for more than 30 seconds, according to a video that was uploaded to the Internet.

27-year-old Jamie Granger of Tauranga works as a beekeeper.

One day, Granger's friend Aurel Braguta, promised the beekeeper $1,000 if he could remove his pants and sit on one of his beehives for 30 seconds.

Granger did not want to let an easy $1,000 slip through his hands so he quickly dropped his pants and sat down on the beehive.

Granger said that it was very painful to be stung by so many bees at the same time.

He pulled through for 30 seconds, and he got his $1,000.

Braguta recorded the stunt and uploaded the video to the Internet, where it went viral.

Braguta also challenged his colleague Shane to sit on the beehive for 30 seconds in exchange for $1,000.

Shane pulled down his pants and sat on the beehive.

After 19 seconds, the pain became unbearable and he ran away.

Shane did not receive any compensation for suffering from the bee bites because he filed to remain seated for 30 seconds.

A child rapist was taken off the street thanks to a courageous 2-year-old girl who testified against him, according to police in the United Kingdom.

Now, 45-year-old Matthew Carter of Dereham has been jailed for more than 11 years after admitting child sex offenses.

Carter pleaded guilty to one count of rape and three counts of making indecent images of children.

Carter was also placed on the Sex Offenders Register for life.

According to the police investigation, Carter raped the 2-year-old girl and took photos of her naked body.

Immediately after the attack, the girl told her parents about the abuse.

The parents called the police, but the 2-year-old girl refused to talk with investigators.

An expert of the Ministry of Justice stepped in and helped the young girl open up to investigators.

Police emptied an interview room and filled it with toys.

The expert then played with the girl for some time and gained her trust.

Police then asked her short questions, and the girl showed them where she was attacked by pointing to a gingerbread man.

When it came time to take a DNA swab from the girl's mouth, she became terrified of the forensic expert so everyone in the room put on gloves and brushed their teeth.

The girl then took a brush and placed it in her mouth to copy the adults.

Armed with video testimony and a DNA sample, prosecutors went to court, prompting Carter to plead guilty to rape.

The girl was the youngest ever person to testify about a case in the United Kingdom.
