So who has the better life? The dudes in the rain forest living out their lives in peace and quiet, masters of their own destiny, or us rich products of Western culture with our cars, homes, iPods, computers and whatnot?

Isn't the life from birth to death the same life we chase from the time we're in our late teens until we "get" to retire at 65?

Kinda makes you think, doesn't it?

Are you sure it's not because of this:
2008 DOM: I've lost count
:-b


That is a pretty cool story. They probably thought that plane was from outerspace :-b

That cracked me up. :-b :-b

Anyway, awesome story that is really weird to think about. Crazy that this tribe has no idea about our modern technology.

Looks like it is only half true :-?

As it turns out, the story is only half true. The men in the photo are members of a tribe, but it certainly ain't "lost." In fact, as the photographer, José Carlos Meirelles, recently explained, authorities have known about this particular tribe since 1910. The photographer and the agency that released the pictures wanted to make it seem like they were members of a lost tribe in order to call attention to the dangers the logging industry may have on the group.

It's amazing how much misinformation is out there and how little integrity people have when it comes to the truth. It's almost like the truth doesn't matter at all. Even at the cafe, people use evidence or cite references to prove their point and don't even care if the evidence is true or not. I think the main problem is that the truth often forces us to challenge our beliefs or pre-conceived notions and it's just easier to ignore it. I for one want to know the truth regardless of the ramifications.

*end annoying rant*
