every summer yuh see dem full full visor dem chinee gyul wearing. is like a welding mask. ridiculous.

my ah'ma make my ah'gong wear this ridiculous hat to prevent sun burn!



yuh eh mind this?



like dey wuking death star.

Dude she wore one of those on her last visit to DC, the visor was green and you could flip it up (for using a camera) or down to shade yourself.

The traditional chinese have a revulsion against people with people of color. In the last decade or so a lot of colored seasonal/migrant laborers have made their way to china, the chinese look down on these people. My friend who is white has a job in a Beijing firm only because he was white! He's paraded around by the company, as "we have a white american guy, do you?" I kid you not!

The white untanned skin is along the lines of foot binding.

I like my wife's grand parents because they don't really care about the color of my skin... it's funny when I go to their factories and people are like 'what the fugggg" is this dude doing here  :rotfl:

Guys,

I usually work abroad but will be home for about six weeks in mid Sept.

I initially will stay at around Bay/Bloor. If you all know of any good WI restaurants or Roti places nearby let me know.

Anybody want to bounce up. Just give me a hail.

I visited Toronto for the first time over the 4th of July week! From the 5th to the 8th! Was a good experience, I enjoyed the China town part of it! Fruits and food galore! A lot of burn outs and hippies, but the ambiance was nice. People were generally nice! The wife organized a edge walk of the CN Tower, very nice experience. Found some nice restaurants along Dundas and Queens Street! We visited the beaches, because it was hot! Kinda cool being in the water, half of your body cold, the upper half warm. A lot of the museums and art galleries, you had to pay for them (we're from DC, so all of it is free) The Bata Museum was very interesting, another fun thing we did was the brewery tours! Nice place, police are kind of silly in their approach to certain things (had an item stolen, and their incompetence was rampant). The downtown waterfront street performances were also an added bonus!

wah de?!?!? on the holiest of high holidays , you went and visit ah foreign country?!?
like yuh wuh TT to lorse de lil piece of he mind dat left & call de IRS on yuh or wha?


hahahaha nice try dutty! No on 4th July we stood on the borderline of rainbow bridge. I stood on the American side of the bridge to watch the fireworks. Silly thing is my buddy (who is a border patrol) told me the best view would be on the canadian side of the falls! No I did not want to answer on those clearance forms that I traveled out of the country to watch 4th of July fireworks on the Canadian side of the border. Crazy thing is that I was charged roaming while being on the american side! I was wearing my department of the navy shirt for some patriotism!

Originally we were going to see the reenactment of the french and indian wars, but my wife had some asian friends in Toronto... so we headed there!

On the contrary I found Toronto and canada as a whole, very business friendly!

Given the revenue we threw at UDECOTT, we could have used some of that finance to create greenhouses or climate controlled growing rooms. If wheat could grow in the UAE, with oil money, why are staples not a priority for this country? The governments should have invested in cereals and aqua farming!

Study Finds People Who Believe In Heaven Commit More Crimes

http://seattle.cbslocal.com/2012/06/22/study-finds-people-who-believe-in-heaven-commit-more-crimes/



SEATTLE (CBS Seattle) — Believing if you are on a “highway to hell” could impact whether or not if you commit a crime.

A study published in the scientific journal PLoS One by University of Oregon’s Azim Shariff and University of Kansas’s Mijke Rhemtulla finds that people who believe in hell are less likely to commit a crime while people who believe in heaven more likely are to get in trouble with the law.


The two professors collected data for belief in hell, heaven and God from the World and European Values Surveys that were conducted between 1981 until 2007 with 143,197 participants based in 67 countries. They compared the data to the mean standardized crime rate in those countries based on homicides, robberies, rapes, kidnappings, assaults, thefts, auto thefts, drug crimes, burglaries and human trafficking.

“[R]ates of belief in heaven and hell had significant, unique, and opposing effects on crime rates,” Shariff and Rhemtulla found in the study. “Belief in hell predicted lower crime rates … whereas belief in heaven predicted higher crime rates.”

They also found that a recent social psychological experiment found that Christian participants who believe in a forgiving God gave themselves more money for the study.

“Participants in the punishing God and both human conditions overpaid themselves less than 50 cents more than what they deserved for their anagrams, and did not statistically differ from the neutral condition, those who wrote about a forgiving God overpaid themselves significantly more-nearly two dollars,” the study found.

Shariff and Rhemtulla believe that the study raises “important questions about the potential impact of religious beliefs on global crime.”

I will not go into all the technicalities of what we did or what we did not do as a production team.

King Tut was nubian, the images of him on his throne and on the walls of his tomb depicts a cocoa/chocolate man. Not that image that Nat Geo depicted, we were aghast when we saw that garbage documentary (this is why I got out of television, fake shyte all over). His tomb depicts a black dude and at the conclusion of the documentary his skin is alabaster? Steups!

The greeks are credited with being great mathematicians, but early greek writings are devoid of the symbol "0" and without a zero, your math is just based on static measurements. In african culture you find closed loop symbols everywhere and through out all periods of the culture. The Egyptians and the Arabian Peninsular was said to introduce the concept of "zer0" to math. Also the pyramids were built hugely to align with certain astrological formations. Remember before the greeks were discussing philosophy and democracy, Places in Mali were discussing these similar topics on a grandiose scale, medicine was being done also.

I once read that the mythology of the huge stone structures of Easter Island is a representations of their Gods, what does those faces planted through out easter island look like.... not nubian...! I believe that there was a great expansion of knowledge that left Africa during the times of Pharaoh.

I read that there is written evidence of African tribes that spoke a language similar to latin and there are some African names that are really close to chinese, like Gao, Shao, Shin, Huang etc... things that make you go hmmm.

When we were researching this project, we found that there had been numerous Pyramid like structures scattered through out Northern Africa and the Sahara from Zanzibar, Sudan and the largest being in Egypt. The African Pyramids are not uniquely Egypt, but their immensity is! The paintings on the walls of KV62 and other chambers had faces and skin that is dark. I mean there was color compositions that were used on parts of the paintings were white, or cream color, why paint the faces of Tut and his family dark brown. Tut name's meaning was supposed to be "son or walking image of anul" Anul is dark in all depictions that I have found.

@ JC a lot of times these projects are privately funded and the funders have a say in the outcome in the final product. Eg is the T-Rex an apex predator or a scavenger, anatomically it's a scavenger but depicted as a predator.... or what was it's true color composition. A lot of times the artist rendition is heavily influenced by external factors or executive input. Would you like to be told that your whole history was based on a misconception?

Most Egyptians (today) don't consider themselves black, and despise being called "African"

@DHW no but I travelled a lot!

One of the very last projects I (a team of us) filmed & edited while at Discovery Communications was a Doc. on King TUT and his ancestral lines. I have some of the photos on FB of my trip to the Pyramids and the Valley of the Kings. When we took MRI of King Tut and recreated his face, the head of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities and Head Archeologist Zahi Hawass, fought us tooth and nail. They did not want us to depict what we had found or what we were lead to recreate with the help of forensic recreations. That project was delayed from 2008 to 2010. Lets just say that Tut, his granny and his family buried their tombs were not european...

I have yet to see europeans with ah question mark head (side profile)

The 20 forking million that Mary Cheh proposed to fun the health care of illegal immigrants and all the needless forking money that they does spend through out the city they cayr subsidize ah event like this.... steups.

Ribbit- (I'm vacationing, so sorry for the delayed response)

You may be correct, but from what I have read from Google is that they siphon information from IP (header & packets). It's been so long since I've done Internet Protocol, but I think you can get a lot of info about a person by dissecting that information, without sweeping the actual content of the email. Couple that with your surfing and use of google as a search engine, your page will be filled with targeted tailored emails. Again you may be right and I'm not looking for an argument, just that my wife would bring me another bitter lemon with gin.

Why I did not invest in FB.

-Problems with production & sales of PC @ HP, more people going mobile.
-People at FB admitting before going public that their ads on Mobile are not doing as well as they thought it would.
-GM pulling it's ads from FB because the ROI was poor.
-FB not planning adequately to transistion into the Mobile Market.
-Way Way Way too overpriced to enter the market.
-40% of accounts are spammers.
-My broker saying NO!
-Thanks to Obummer, Pelosi and Reid since 2006, americans have lost a lot of Private Equity to support an IPO of this nature. Less people investing in the Market. Futures in Foreign lands are more and more profitable.

Bukhari (72:774) - "The Prophet cursed effeminate men (those men who are in the similitude (assume the manners of women) and those women who assume the manners of men, and he said, 'Turn them out of your houses .' The Prophet turned out such-and-such man, and 'Umar turned out such-and-such woman."

al-Tirmidhi, Sunan 1:152 - [Muhammad said] "Whoever is found conducting himself in the manner of the people of Lot, kill the doer and the receiver."

Ayatollah Abdollah Javadi-Amoli of Iran said, in April of 2012, that homosexuals are inferior to dogs and pigs, since these animals (presumably) do not engage in such acts.

Abu Dawud (4448) - "If a man who is not married is seized committing sodomy, he will be stoned to death."
