    My first impulse is to beat them with sticks and send them back to Central Casting.

    Which is, amazingly enough, my second impulse.

    Does anybody want to hear about some of my other impulses?

    Aw c’mon. Dry-hump my leg. You never know what you;I;m re gonna get.

    I’m so impulsive.

    “wearing traditional Papua headwear and being kept warm by modern, light, easily washed, cheap coats made from oil like BP produces…

    Stop bringing us technology and commerce and modern products! Keep your medicine and clean water and safe food to yourselves! Quit forcing educuation and electricity and infrastructure on us!

    I don’t understand why this company can’t make solar powered parking meters like BP does.

    Apart from better sanitation and medicine and education and irrigation and public health and roads and a freshwater system and baths and public order… what have the Romans done for us?

    This blog is great. I always learn something here.
    Today, I learned that Papuans are pygmies.
    Did you know that before today?

    I think the one in the middle can read! That’s one more than most leftist protests in this country.
