You're Thailand!

Calmer and more staunchly independent than almost all those around you,
you have a long history of rising above adversity.  Recent adversity has led to questions
about your sexual promiscuity and the threat of disease, but you still manage to attract a
number of tourists and admirers.  And despite any setbacks, you can really cook a good
meal whenever it's called for.  Good enough to make people cry.

NAVAJO MESSAGE TO THE MOON

When NASA was preparing for the Apollo Project, it
took the astronauts to a Navajo reservation in Arizona
for training.

One day, a Navajo elder and his son came across the
space crew walking among the rocks. The elder, who
spoke only Navajo, asked a question. His son
translated for the NASA people: "What are these guys
in the big suits doing?"

One of the astronauts said that they were practicing
for a trip to the moon. When his son relayed this
comment, the Navajo elder got all excited and asked if
it would be possible to give the astronauts a message
to deliver to the moon

Recognizing a promotional opportunity when he saw one,
a NASA official accompanying the astronauts said, "Why
certainly!" and told an underling to get a tape
recorder. The Navajo elder's comments into the
microphone were brief. The NASA official asked the son
if he would translate what his father had said. The
son listened to the recording intently, then laughed
uproariously. But he refused to translate.

So the NASA people took the tape to a nearby Navajo
village and played it for other members of the tribe.
They too laughed long and loudly, but also refused to
translate the elder's message to the moon.

Finally, an official government translator was
summoned. After he finally stopped laughing, the
translator relayed the message:
"Watch out for these assholes. They have come to steal your land."



I'm trying a new method of combatting depression by listening to Bill Hicks. :)
Hicks is great.

*I think marijuana should not only be legalised it should be mandatory. (...)

You're in a concert and someone is loud and drunk and obnoxious. Are they drunk or are they smoking pot?

I have never seen someone on pot get in a fight because it is fucking impossible.
Hey buddy!
Hey what?
End of argument.*
