It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

Fascinating article, thank you for sharing it. To be fair, the Baining are but one culture in Papua New Guinea, one of the most culturally and linguistically diverse nations on the planet.

Oh I'm sure it is, but selling a tagline requires that you don't outwit the reader with unknown indigenous societies. Sweeping generalizations make for higher comedic effect.

This is a good place to recommend the excellent Guns, Germs & Steel. A well-researched thesis of how and why cultures developed the way they did.

PNG does have some great coffee though. I guess it is worth the trade off.

Awesome article. They're like a culture from a crappy sci-fi book, except they're real.

Is it just me, or does this culture seem like it would be perfect for an evil scientist's minions?
