VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED
If an Indian male marries a non-Indian female (only if she is of a lighter complexion than he), then he is considered lucky by his peers and even elders, though they don’t like to admit it.
If an Indian female marries a non-Indian male (of any ethnicity), she is considered a good-for-nothing slut and people will begin betting on how long her marriage will last. If she marries a White male, then people will assume that she had to seduce him, usually through sex, because what kind of a White male would marry one of our dark-skinned women? They could do so much better. Like, seriously.

Fun shark attack facts:

  • In 1996, toilets injured 43,000 Americans a year. Sharks injured 13.
  • In 1996, 2,600 Americans were injured by room fresheners. Sharks injured 13.
  • In 1996, buckets and pails injured almost 11,000 Americans. Sharks injured 13.
  • For every human killed by a shark, humans kill approximately two million sharks.

Conclusions:

  1. Humans are assholes.
  2. Sharks are not assholes.
  3. Apparently everyone in 1996 lived in a real-life infomercial.

coconuts are one of the most versatile fruits on the planet. their meat can be cooked whole, grated into sambols and relishes, mixed with flour to make flatbread or cooked with sugar into hard candy. coconut milk adds incredible flavor to curry. the outer shell of the coconut is used for collecting water among other domestic purposes. the hard inner shell can be whittled into spoons and cups. the “hair” on a coconut can be made into dusters, brooms, scrubbing tools and used to start small cooking fires.

coconut water, the fluid contained inside the coconut, has been proven to contain important electrolytes that replenish the body in extreme heat, making it the ideal drink for the tropical climates it naturally grows in.

the branches of the coconut tree are used for weaving, roofing and thatch work. Coconut oil is used for cooking, keeping your hair moisturized and nourished and medicinal purposes.

when in flower, the coconut can be tapped for a potent alcoholic beverage knows as ra in Sri Lanka. The treacle from coconut flowers is used to make desserts, poured on fresh yoghurt.

that’s just some of the things you can do with coconuts and coconut trees.

and finally, y’all remember a little thing called the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami that killed a quarter of a million people and flattened hundreds of coastal properties and even overturned railway cars? 

guess what survived a motherfucking tsunami due to their flexible, slender trunks developed over thousands of years of adaptation to coastal winds?

COCONUT TREES

a huge number of people who survived the tsunami did so by clinging on to the tops of coconut trees.
