    Likely one would not sit down to dig a hole with a shovel...so the kind of work means something.

    last time a was in bombay (bumbay, mumbay ...) i saw workers doing just that. i believe they were paid less than i took to buy the calories to be able to do the work standing.

    Might a well through this into this enlightening thread, Men stand to go pee, girls sit to go pee because that seems to often work better.
    If a man sits it might take longer to pee..If a lady stands to go pee she might pee on her new shoes.

    If a man pees off a bridge the tug captain might punch him in the nose.
    Tugboat captain pees into a bucket and then dumps it off the side.
    Dads tell their son to not pee on the electric fence, and some still do.

    People being jealous of their neighbors causes a lot of racist thinking/blaming othrers.

    I know, I should stay out of Hen's chatter, likely open can of worms., and I have a board to cut and some painting to do.

    And with my car in the transmission shop have to ride my manual bike have to ride a mile to the bus stop and then ride 3 miles.

    lol. How dumb.

    The death penalty IS a good thing. What's bad about it is that we let people sit on death row so long it costs millions of dollars to kill them. We should kill them right away. Let some dirtbag rape and kill your daughter then let's see if your mind is changed.

    Americans are the last people who believe theirs is the only true culture. Quite the opposite. We recognize there are dozens of cultures and we want them to stay right where they are. Plus, you can't have it both ways...if you suck on the USA teat, you might have to swallow a few lumps once in while. People love USA handouts but they are affronted by the strings that are attached.


    Hoarding ammo is hardly a cultural thing....but history is full of dead people who are dead because the other guy had more ammo. If you wish to feel a culture of being a patsy is superior....be my guest. No one is stopping you.

    It drives me crazy my workshop gang constantly put work on the ground versus using the 3 workbenches and welding table. Guess it comes natural as squatting around a fire for warmth, chatting, cooking and eating since they were born. Pretty sure its the way with most other 3rd world countries.

    My school district had extra Covid money to spend. For every classroom they bought a standing desk riser so the teacher can sit or stand at their desk. Also a special soft mat to stand on. The rolling chair will sink in and not move causing dents in the rubber.
    Thomas Jefferson made and used a standing desk. When a President makes an important speech he stands up at a lectern not sitting at a desk. Even FDR did this and he was in a wheelchair.

    Maybe that's why they're so angry all the time.

    I would guess they're angry because Uncle Sam invaded their country without a proper invitation.

    .

    CULTURE is what tells them to ban women from learning to read and write.

    I do not understand this one at all. I understand the Koran tells all believers should learn to read and write so they can red the holy book by themselves not being filtered by someone who reads only parts to you, In the original Arabic if they can. So nothing is lost in translation.
    Forbidding anyone to learn to read is sacreligious to Islam as it goes directly against the teachings of the good book.

    PS: I have read that if a Jihadist is killed by a woman he goes straight to hell.
