I can never follow most of the woodworking/handyman threads, but once they finally start to look like something, I get impressed. That's a damn guitar, LJ!

I'll expect a YouTube performance with it when you're done, naturally.

An article about how scientists and psychologists have based most of knowledge of normal on a sliver of the world’s people. Certainly not representative of the variation of human customs and cultures.

Quote:
If a boy is to become a man among the Etoro people of New Guinea, he must ingest the semen of an elder member of the tribe, via ritualised fellatio. The same belief is held by the nearby Kaluli. But in their case, the ceremonies require the semen to be delivered via the initiate’s anus, not his mouth. The Etoro despise the Kaluli’s practice, finding it disgusting and unnatural.

If you were asked to sum up the nature of modern adolescence, the Kaluli and the Etoro would not be the first examples that spring to mind. But a few years ago, three researchers in Vancouver became convinced that much of what we think we know about humanity as a whole is in fact the result of studying a tribe that is just as divorced from the mainstream of human experience: the American undergraduate.

I half-ass knew the story, but this article was SUPER interesting. I didn't know they sold Nikes out of the trunk of a car, but it made me think of Chuck Taylor, the guy who sold Converse All Stars out of the trunk of his car.
