No, I’m not reading this.  I glanced through, but, this is too much. I’m trying to read up on some science and I come across this in the Environmental Research Letters.

I’ve no words for this.

    Cutting through all the carp.. 🙂
    Indigenous people use tobacco mixed with salt ash.
    Tobacco – represents woman menstrual flow.
    Salt ash – represents Creators semen.

    Thus this “taking in” of the mixed tobacco/salt = awareness of both sexes = “wholeness”.

    Can I have a grant?

    I read earlier an article in the Australian newspaper identifying $25 billion in budget cuts for our budget (which would be like about $350 billion if it were the US, prorate to GDP). (paywalled link here)

    I suspect on the evidence of the Witoto paper the grant providing agencies could be pruned just slightly to provide yet more savings.

    Sigh….Here I sit, usually 7 days a week, halfway thru at least a 3 month recovery from knee surgery thanks to a hit & run, still working away to help produce product people actually need (clothing), and THIS kinda stuff gets my tax dollar.
