I love this stuff. This is the first photograph showing the first contact with a previously unknown Amazon tribe. It was taken just a few days ago. The tribe members appear to be shooting arrows at the airplane. Little do they know.
What will our tribe share with them? The Spear(e)'s, Britney and Shake? Sylvester Stallone? Versace fragrances for men and women? Wii Archery? Christianity? Scientology? The benefits of laissez-faire capitalism (AmazonWorld, coming Summer of 2015)?
It used to be that the doctrine of Manifest Destiny dictated that it was incumbent upon the white man to "civilize" the rest of the world, and to force the unruly heathen to adopt what was best for them. Hopefully we've learned a few lessons in the meantime. But I wonder what will happen. Here, in 2008, we've encountered people who know nothing of Walt Disney or Hugh Hefner, Jesus Christ or L. Ron Hubbard, George W. Bush or Anheuser -Busch. What will we do?
