Women, boys and girls are all allowed to wear mascara without it being an issue (i.e. in Western society it would be a bit taboo for a wee lad to walk around with mascara on). It’s usually worn for special events (weddings, celebrations, engagements).
I did after a while, although I’m a bit on the fence about some things of it. Basically it’s taking something that could be really sacred or just meaningful to another person’s cultural identity, and then using it to be fashionable or whatever, when
What’s unexpected about this? We all seen the “behind the scenes” or whatever you wanna call it when these National Geographics and mainstream media photographers alive stage picture upon picture.
I should like to think that trough photographies like this one, even most vehemently fearful of immigrants amongst Europeans will see the reason and importance between sharing what the majority of us enjoy. the very least of basic living decency with the people fleeing
Is a picture of a homeless man praising poverty? Is a picture of a funeral praising mortality? Is a picture of a rioter praising anarchy? Is a picture of a soldier praising war? I feel this subreddit shines at showing the state of the
If you look at the source link given by the OP, http://www.riittaikonen.com/projects/eyes-as-big-as-plates/ it’s part of an art installation, quote, “*a play on characters and protagonists from Norwegian folklore.*” And there are a bunch of other subjects also wearing odd headgear, including several variations on
SE Asia is one very steamy place, so constant sweat is pretty much inevitable. During the–very long–summer, I often take 2 showers a day and change clothes and that’s with pervasive aircon.
And, a bit of research has proven fruitful… This picture is a professional model who is modelling the earrings you see her wearing. She is not a beautiful african woman going about her day, caught on film by a photographer. She is a well
The Yi have an *amazing* syllabary (written language where each character is a syllable). It is really so cool, and is the largest known standardized syllabary in history, incorporating tones into its mapping. http://www.omniglot.com/writing/yi.htm
Look at it this way, Rromi are a specific ethnic group that, in the past, lived a nomadic lifestyle, generally were marginalized and distrusted, etc. They have a specific set of features and skin tone that make them recognizable to those familiar with them.
Upvote for knowing your stuff. I used to live in Uganda and am constantly trying to study African history, culture, etc. You’re absolutely right concerning the Hutu and Tutsi divide–sadly, (one prominent theory) the Germans and Belgians largely fabricated these distinctions and created two
Really? That’s super cool. I’ve been trying to find some history about this photo since I’m really interested in Mongolia and Mongolian culture, but I couldn’t find anything. Maybe having a name will help! Where did you find the copy you got on your
For those wondering how a tow truck driver might serve the president: When travelling to the airport the Presidential motorcade is exceptionally large. At the rear of the motorcade is a tow truck. First police sweep the freeway and begin closing freeway on-ramps. They
Yes, we have free health care system, including dental treatment (but excluding implant, I suppose) You have to be working and your employer will pay your insurance as a tax payment, or you can pay yourself if you are self employed. If you are
It makes a lot of sense to elevate your dwelling above the ground in a tropical rain forest (either on posts or in the trees). Less mud and the air circulation coming from below makes it more comfortable.
I want to comment on the sheer number of propositional phrases in this post’s title, but I’m not sure how to do it without sounding like an asshole given the picture’s content. As a separate aside, it’s interesting to note how many different (but
I live in NY and I do not have a problem with these guys. I see them almost literally every day due to my subway-taking schedule. The only time I ever saw someone get hurt was actually when a showtime guy hit his head
pfff *420* … how … collegiate … In 2009 it was [documented](http://arstechnica.com/security/2009/11/sony-still-subsidizing-us-supercomputer-efforts/) that the [DoD](http://scitech.blogs.cnn.com/2009/12/09/military-purchases-2200-ps3s/) bought some to make a 2200 node cluster for an unspecified project. In 2010 the US Air Force Research Lab built a [1,760](http://phys.org/news/2010-12-air-playstation-3s-supercomputer.html) node named “Condor Cluster” It wasn’t

You gotta remember that there are no rules. There are guidelines and proven methods that work. They are a very very versatile mic. With a frequency response of 40-15k, you can use them for alot of applications. 57’s sound killer (although i love the
I know I’m almost definitely going to get downvoted for this, but can we have a discussion about selective(/national) humanism on reddit? I’ve noticed dozens of high-ranking posts with, for instance, a elderly Afghan giving an American soldier water, Pakistanis/Syrians holding English language cards
There’s a *really* interesting documentary about it, called “Mellodrama”. It features one of my favourite composers, Jon Brion (you have most likely heard lots of his music without even knowing it! He has composed the music for many popular films.) [Here’s a great trailer,
Sort of. Black Africans from Ethiopia, Somalia, Egypt, and parts of Sudan are generally distinguishable from sub-Saharan Africans by sight. You’ll find people in these regions to be taller, lankier, have longer, thinner noses, among other features. This is, of course, a gross generalization,
