What one modern item would you give to a primitive tribe
    #4195240 - 05/19/05 02:02 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

and why?

And what modern item do you think would fuck them up the most?


I think I would have to live with them for a week to figure out what I would want to give them if anything. I saw a show where some moderners visited a primitive tribe and of their luggage and gear, they were most fascinated with a MIRROR and photographs taken of them.

A television I think would fuck them up the most.

When I was in the Carribean, the primitive tribesman wanted money the most of the modern items.  Usually I got my money's worth... :rasta:

Oh, and the one item that would fuck them up the most was the one I was spending the money on.  :stoned:

A radio would fuck them up really bad, much worse than a tv because it has a more abstract/sensory quality whereas the TV is obviously limited by the imperfect visual medium.

read up on the rwandan genocide and find out what I mean.

My mom was telling me how she read up on how microwave cooking kills the nutrients in food?

I don't even want mine anymore:lol: I use it for warming water for tea now mostly.

Lunar,

That was Funny!!!!!!

Doom, I mentioned TV because in the Carribean, when MTV hit the scene, things changed for the worse. The youth started galmorizing the gansta thug life style and became materialistic and youth crime shot up like a rocket.

The imagery and glamorization of it fucked them up. Radio wouldn't have that sort of effect.

Not to say radio wouldn't spawn other ils. The above is why I thought of TV.

Sadly, a large portion of the lyrics are much worse than the images on MTV.

Cooking destroys nutrients in food. It also kills bacteria and parasites and can change the composition to be more easily digestible, increasing the available nutrients (compare raw grain with cooked grain). If you could provide some reputable scientific sources to back up any claims that microwave cooking is worse than all other forms of cooking, I would really appreciate it.

where were you? I suspect in a country that has a monetary-based economy and a somewhat general knowledge of the modern world?

gangsta rap wouldnt mean anything to the amazonians, they wouldnt understand any of the images or behaviour. On the other hand. Those who controlled the radio could easily manipulate the tribe because the radio would have its basis in the tribes culture, and thus be considered the word of god.

It was a passage in a book my mom had on health and nutrition I breezed through.

I know when you boil veges, the nurtients get sucked out into the boiled water and then people dump the water down the drain.

I don't know if the boiled water kills them anyway.

I have nothing to debate here but want to ask if thats why people are big on raw diets and what is meant by a raw diet?

i would give them a nuclear bomb to see what would happen. But the kind that needs to be launched by an airplane, so they can't just detonate it, unless they try really really REALLY hard.

I'd probably give them a hydrogen bomb and detenator as a present, just in case they got attacked.

The worst item you could give them would probably be anything that requires an outlet, because they don't have electricity.

There are no "impact" nuclear weapons. The only reason it was launched from a plane was so the pilots could be far away enough from the blast.

Funny, you two were thinking along the lines of adult toys and my daughter and I discussing it were thinking along the line of childrens toys like, dolls/action figures, and crayons and balls.

You consider a nuclear bomb a toy? I wonder if the people of Japan did as well.

I would give them a blender, so they can mix all that tropical fruit into smoothies.


But what would fuck them up the most, as you ask? Have you ever seen that movie, where these tribal Africans found a glass coke bottle, and damn near had a WAR over it, resulting in one of them taking an epic pilgrimage to a fantastically massive canyon, just to toss the "evil" glass Coke bottle away?







I'd give 'em a coke bottle. :wink:
