Advice for strippers.

Brainwash your kids! (fake) Check the intellectualizer page.

Wil Wheaton's blog. God, I hated Wesley Crusher. Wil seems nice, though.

Now, who wouldn't want to learn how to prepare a shrunken head?

A lovely page about a hamster. Sort of. More or less.

I really wanted to see the shrunken head thing but it won't allow me to do so at work. Is that Hamster site a piss take? I think at one point she/he even types like a stereotyped Japanese person i.e "Rearry" instead of "Really".

Hmm, I wonder why the shrunken head-link says "were". Some Jivaro might actually still DO. At least they were doing it as recently as the late '70-ies.

I have a paper here by the late renowned Dutch priest/missionary Zegwaard, where he describes in detail, based on live observations, the process of butchering and cooking victims by the Asmat Papua, who were actively performing cannibalism untill well into the '50-ies. It is rather gruesome reading. (in case you wonderr why I have it: I have some Asmat enthographics on my wall and an interest in the ethnography and exploration of New Guinea in general).

I was more interested in the technique than whether they used the correct tense in the article, actually.

Plus, of course, it's not the late 70s now, so the past tense woul;d be perfectly correct.
