Have you heard about the photos published today, allegedly proving the existence of a completely uncontacted, remote indigenous tribe? Kraabel and I are debating it and I smell a rat. A war painted, loin cloth clad, arrow pointing rat. Not that I don’t love the idea of a “lost tribe” in the darkest jungle where Brazil melts into Peru. I do -I love it. But this….it just feels so contrived, too convenient…especially when presented by an agenda-laden South American government.
As K even admits, “It’s all a little ‘The Gods Must be Crazy.’”
TV: I admit, it seems too odd to be real…either way, it’s interesting…either it’s an unfound tribe or an elaborate hoax, either is intriguing.
“At flavor-tripping parties, guests find that miracle fruit makes everything sweet.”
TV: This seems too weird to be real, but there it is in the NYT
TV: Man is this movie going to be awesome!
Police rescued the African grey parrot two weeks ago from a neighbor’s roof in the city of Nagareyama, near Tokyo. After spending a night at the station, he was transferred to a nearby veterinary hospital.
“I’m Mr. Yosuke Nakamura,” the bird told the veterinarian, according to Uemura. The parrot also provided his full home address, down to the street number, and even entertained the hospital staff by singing songs.
