Once one becomes a man, what is the detergent recommended for removing the blood stains? Or is that women's work?

Animal rights/welfare is a religion that a lot of people on the net don't dare to call into question. It's simply misanthropic and that's why the originators of this propaganda go on and on about "world shame" when it's just a tradition in some country. But oh my, some animal gets killed and these drips carry on as if they're talking about a holocaust. NG and other animal rights outfits have been known to stage this stuff in the first place.

so, ah, "Jinx!" is what you say when you and someone else say something at the same time. They "jinxed" you. And the debt of a Coke goes to whoever says "Jinx! You owe me a Coke!" first after the two people say something simultaneously. I dunno, it's just a thing that kids said in the 80s.
and the 60's

Oral tradition is a wonderful thing.

Do they still pass along the secrets of Chinese Jump Rope and Cat's Cradle?

cat's cradle-yes. Chinese jump rope - I don't think so. Never seen them do that.

Bet they pass on Chinese Burns though!

Miss Capri there are plenty of traditions that should cause "world shame". Female genital mutilation for one.

Big business animal husbandry in the Western world is as cruel or crueller than the slaughter shown. Why don't I post about it? Because I am not a hypocrite, I am a meat-eater and I do not trace all the meat I consume from farm to fork to ensure it has been reared responsibly. I cannot guarantee that if I buy cheap fish it is not at the cost of overfishing or the destruction of another species.

That's not to say I am immune from the shock of the pictures above. But don't insult my intelligence by suggesting this is staged, when even this thread shows a little knowledge - or reading around - would verify it as an annual event.

Not to mention male genital mutilation, and we call Chinese Burns "Indian Burns" over here.
