This is a story with some interesting word of mouth facts:

Today I was talking with some co-workers about the nastiest jobs we've been assigned to. My Captain said that when he was a Lance Corporal in Saudi, he was assigned to clean the toilets. When he went in the stall to clean it there was solid waste everywhere. On the lid, on the floor, everywhere. The same thing for all the other stalls too. So he just sucked it up and cleaned the mess up for the first couple of days. After that he asked his Sergeant what the deal was. Come to find out the civlian Saudi workers (all Saudis) have a custom to stand up when they do #2. After they found that out, they assigned them to one stall. He also said that they don't use toilet paper. They received in their country brief not to shake their left hand, cause they take their fingers and whipe their butts with them. They rinse them off with a water spigot.

Now I don't have anything against my Brothers of that culture, I'm just passing along an interesting story.

Take it easy
Peace

Killing with kindness.

I would start a thread in KTL, but I don't think it's worth it.

The Americas was primarily conquered by friendship and kindness. The colonist were helpless to certain extents. The Natives being trading people for centuries accepted them as friends. They fed them and taught them how to work their land. They even accepted their customs and religion, allowed their women to marry their men, etc. After some odd years more and more colonist came until the land couldn't support the Natives anymore. The great push began. This isn't the account of one isolated incident, but an average acount of places like San Salvador, Plymouth, Jamestown, Fort Defiance, the list goes on.

I see how when different cultures start to dominate others, especially the new dominating the elder, a trend of destruction seems to follow. I see that in so many places today. From poor communities with businesses coming in without the people's interest in their best interest, to invading countries, and slave cultures. I just wanted to speak on this right quick. It's about love and understanding.

Sometimes the kindness of a person can kill her/him. It's been done for years on end. The Native people of the Americas biggest mistake to me was not learning the common ways of their savage new guests. Sometimes (so called) integration isn't the best route. Think about it...

Take it easy Brothers and Sisters
I'ma chill with my family now,
Peace

^^This is fact for sure. It's like that in India too. I lived there for a couple years and that is the way they do it. The left hand over there is way worse than the middle finger here. You dont put your left hand on the dinner table nor do you touch people or make gestures in general with your left hand. I guess, at least they must know it's nasty!

Another weird thing I remember from India was the ferris wheel I saw at a carnival I went to.... a ferris wheel, big, like the ones we have...only they didn't use motors, they used people. These crazy motherfuckers would jump, swing and climb from bar to bar in perfect synchronicity so that the ferris wheel turned continuosly or stopped when needed. Nuts!

Although some facts are not facts, these things are fun to talk about. Thanks to BlackWisdom, MaShPG and Os3y3ris for the interesting thread. Lots of Love!
