Just wanted to state, for the record, despite having accustomed myself to the alcoholic beverage suppliers at the residence of my current education facility:
- I did NOT coma 2 days in a row in the middle of the afternoon last Thurs/Fri
- I have NEVER comad from the consumption of alcohol
- I will NOT be comering from the consumption of alcohol anytime (in the near future)
As my education is proving, I have also learnt:
- Beer gives me hangovers
- Spirits don't
- Beer and cricket go together well (the boys got something right for once)
- A pool table and Radio Hauraki would be better if they were in the bar and meat friendly cafe, as apposed to the evil meat hating vego place
Such a rich environment for stimulated learning, who's got the next round??
Wanna Learn Something New? Wanna be Disturbed? Anthropolgy 101
So yesterdays tutorial... hmm umm yea. Ever heard of the Semai? They're a group of people (ie. a culture) in Papa New Guinea, actually I don't think you really want the details...
But too bad, you're getting them.
While studying life stages (ie. the stages of life in different cultures) we became well informed of the life stages of the male specimen in the Semai.
The Semai view the first 7 years of life as the time you are filled with all things maternal and feminine (eg. mother's breast milk, motherly love & nurture etc), so once a boy gets to 7 they really need to get all the femininty taken out of them and replaced with some more masculine inputs. How about semen?? So for the next 10 years (7-17) they live through consumption of the semen of their male elders as well as annual shock rituals (eg. a male elder jumps on their back, flips them over and jabs a stick up their nose). Following this, they have two years of being bisexual, sex with their male elders, aswell as with their newlywed wife.
Then they hit 19 and they truly are real men...
It's good not to be a guy
Just another day in Anthropolgy
I'm sorry, did I just hear what I think I heard? I believe I did...
Pink Floyd coming on tour, regardless of whether Rog boy comes or not, they say they're coming.
Also, bringing the oldskool to Welly, Deep Purple are playing the Events Centre (April I think). How old would those guys be now anyway?
