See, now this is exactly what I’d hoped for when News Cut started: People dropping me tidbits in the news they find interesting.

There are pictures on a BBC Web site taken by an airplane as it flew over a previously “undiscovered” tribe in the Amazon. The part that I think is interesting is the manner in which they have painted their bodies. It makes me wonder if they happened to be caught in the middle of some sort of ceremony, or if that is just their daily attire. Seems to be a lot of work to impress the 10 other people that you know.
Apparently, you can have all sorts of time to do other things when you’re not bothered with getting your shirt to match your pants.
