40 Hottest Female Celebrity Bodies of All Time

40 Hottest Female Celebrity Bodies of All Time | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
wanderingsalsero's insight:

Although I've always thought that you could go to any most downtown city centers and find plenty of beautiful, still this list is interesting because of the aggregate nature of the list. Several of these women I'd only heard of. I think it would be cool to take these name (whichever ones you like the best) and them bring them up in Google Images and see what pops up (no pun intended).

11-Year-Old Kansas Boy Taken Away from Mom Due to Her Use of Cannabis Oil to Treat Crohn's Disease

11-Year-Old Kansas Boy Taken Away from Mom Due to Her Use of Cannabis Oil to Treat Crohn's Disease | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
Yesterday Shona Banda, the Kansas medical marijuana activist whose home was searched after her 11-year-old son challenged anti-pot propaganda at school, failed to regain custody of the boy, who is ...
wanderingsalsero's insight:

The graphic says, "Legally kidnapped" but of course there really is no such thing. You know what part of the problem is?

 

The pigs do stuff like this by surprise and people have no time to think about how to react. I'm of the opinion that a certain percentage of people would resist if they had time to actually make that decision.

 

But I also think that there is developing a collective consciousness that's pretty well come to the conclusion that they're going to have to resist in whatever way possible even if it means grabbing a gun and saying, "No....it stops here and now...with me...come hell or high water."

 

And that's what it's going to take to get these forces of evil to cease and desist. What we're seeing here, at its core, is a manifestation of pure evil. And evil doesn't stand up to the light of truth. Sometimes truth hurts even the people who convey it but....that didn't stop our founding fathers, right?

The Extraordinary Genius of Albert Einstein The Extraordinary Genius of Albert Einstein - National Geographic 2014 Full Documentary HD ----------------------...
wanderingsalsero's insight:

Great movie about an unknown battle in a largely unknown war. I think it's interesting to listen to the accents of the Aussies, Kiwis, and Canadians...and try to tell the difference.

 

I can verify that Korea, north and south, is a bitch to fight for. It's rocky and rough as hell. And colder than a witch'es tit in the winter. But now it's amazing how beautiful the country is. Especially in the Spring and Summer.

 

The movie makes a point that so true. The average soldier just does what he's told. Neither our side nor theirs really had any drudge against the other.

 

It's just those fucking politicians that get people killed. Real people can and do usually get along.

top fado singers - Google Search | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
wanderingsalsero's insight:

I'd be willing to bet that anybody who loves music would be fascinated with this page. Look up on the top, pick any one of those names, and plug them into Grooveshark and listen to the artist. I'm listening to Amalia Rodrigues now. She's commonly regarded at the Queen of 'Fado' style. I think she's now decease too...and Mariza has taken over the 'queen' title. 


Fado is a beautiful style... almost impossible to imagine until you've heard it. In my mind, its similar to the style known as 'morna' although I've never had the benefit of talking to somebody who really understands the genre to find out for sure.

 

Ana Moura is great too.

wanderingsalsero's insight:

This is funny. The Muslim baker-guy saying, "No...no... I don't want it." Which really means, 'Are you crazy! Fuck-off!!'

 

Which...he has every right to say any way he wants to say it. The commentator here makes the real issue perfectly clear and I'm glad somebody finally is. I find it strange that it takes Muslims, in a traditionally Christian country, to have the balls to stand up against what even 'Nature' says is wrong.

 

Guy don't fuck each other....period. Not only is it immoral. It's just plain stupid.

 

I get the feeling that 'the right' is starting to wake up though and I think it's going to be interesting to see where this battle goes. There are, after all, more of us than them.

wanderingsalsero's insight:

This is one of the gratifying things about living abroad although perhaps i n some countries more than others. This particular exchange was in Bangkok's Chinatown and, in case you don't know it, it's pretty well accepted that if you want to get anything done in Thailand... you go to a Chinese businessman. They get stuff done.

 

I don't think there is much of a Chinese business community in Colombia, where I am now, but you do have these unexpected encounters with people who you have honest if brief man-to-man conversations with. I've had several with taxi drivers which in itself that unusual. Taxi drivers come in all types... usually friendly and pretty good at dealing with people when they want too. But the idea of having them with somebody in a foreign country just goes to show you how much alike everybody in the world is.

 

Scott, here in this video, is a good man.

wanderingsalsero's insight:

I suppose some of the Miami-based salseros and casineros have already established their own 'trade' and travel-routes with Cuba but dancers in other parts of the US probably have not. So, this is going to be a hot item for them. It'll probably take a while for studio owners and professional dancers and teachers to work out their own programs for taking groups to Cuba but... I'll bet they will. And I think it'll be a really big deal when it happens.

You Can Turn A $2000 Shipping Container Into An Epic Off-Grid Home

You Can Turn A $2000 Shipping Container Into An Epic Off-Grid Home | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
A luxury home doesn’t always necessarily mean thousands of square footage, towering great rooms and gilded toilets. Take these homes for example: to begin building one of these epic houses, all you need is $2,000. That $2,000 will buy you a shipping container. What you do with that shipping container… well, that’s completely up to you. Some creative people have found a way to transform this rudimentary “room” with metal siding into luxury housing that blows us away. These homes are epic.

Shia-Sunni relations - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Over the years, Sunni-Shia relations have been marked by both cooperation and conflict. Sectarian violence persists to this day from Pakistan to Yemen and is a major element of friction throughout the Middle East.
