Anthropology 201 Guidelines

Anthropology is the study of groups of people, their beliefs, practices, values, ideas, technologies, languages, economies and more.

All are welcome to post in this section, even Geico Cavemen.

A couple of caveats-- (1) racism has no place in this forum, and (2) please show a little discretion. In other words, if an attachment violates policy on the rest of TWEB, it violates policy in this forum as well, even if it depicts a highly interesting and unique aspect of some obscure culture. Keep it reasonably clean, folks.

    Oh boy...here we go. I said "directive" sir, read above, specifically not hate. Anyway, I haven't said enough on the subject for your opinion about my off the markness to mean much. Good day to you, and feel free to add to how cancerous humans are.

Or if they kill it's often driven by hate rather than directive. I couldn't imagine a much better scenario if lions were to suddenly acquire a human intellect. Goodness, they'd round up all living and eat them 53 days flat. End of story.

    We are the only species to make war on ourselves on a massive scale. Possibly to the point of possibly driving us to extinction.

    They like bacon to the detriment of their health. Especially the moist, semi-crunchy kind cooked with a drizzle of maple syrup.

    I have been fully human since before I was born. I have grown physically, mentally and spiritually, but I have always been fully a human being.
