Writer. Documentarist. World Travel Gypsy. Animal-lover.
I blog about culture - ours & others around the globe. From that impossible coworker in the next cube, to cannibalistic tribes on the other side of the world, I take you into foreign minds via news, music, stories, time-travel, famous quotes & not-so-famous blogger quotes.
Because I love mind exploration. I love learning how people think, what they feel about things, what exactly it is that makes every culture believe they're the 'normal' ones.
Travel with me, won't you? It's quite a ride!
1. During medieval times, hair washing was about as important (or not) as bathing.
The wealthy — because their finances allowed them to afford the collection of clean water, servants, and the time to indulge more often in such luxuries as bathing and hair washing — washed their hair more frequently than peasant classes.
2. In spite of flowing finances, many royal kings, queens, and those in the noble classes, washed their hair only a few times per year. They preferred instead to wear crowns, hats, and headdresses.
In place of washing, powder was used to soak up scalp oils & attempt to suffocate head lice.
And, in order to laugh to keep from raging at Florida’s undaunted attempts at voter suppression – reworked, reworded, and redefined from their successful 2000 and 2004 election fraud – Jon Stewart shares clips from John Oliver’s interviews with Florida’s democracy-challenged voting-related lawmakers.
Cry? Rage? Turn your back on civilization & move to a deserted island?
That’s what David Glasheen did, making himself a modern-day Robinson Caruso.
As reported by Daily Mail, twenty-five years ago, Glasheen lost his 10 million dollar (6.5 British pounds) fortune in the 1987 stock market crash. Five years later, the Aussie business tycoon ditched civilization to become a castaway on a tiny island along the north-eastern coast of Australia.
As reported by mainstream Israeli news outlet Haaretz, the victim, 42-year-old Talal Siad, was having a celebratory Eid al-Fitr family day with his wife and 5 children at Meymadion Water Park on Thursday, when they witnessed Tel Aviv police repeatedly spraying pepper into the eyes of a teenager on the ground.
The teen victim had been involved in an altercation which occurred between some families at the park. Israeli police intervened, but witnesses say the officers used “unnecessary force.”
