Shit Slinger
India
Typically people in India wake up very early. By the time the sun was up, so are most of the local people, going about their business and using the early hours to wash down at the banks of the Ganges, here in Varanasi. This one gentleman stood and stared whilst I took my photographs., and as I finished he walked up and put his hand out. Politely, I did the same and he decided it would be a good opportunity to take my hand and start massaging it. These guys will do anything to try and scam a rupee or 10 out of you. Being wise to such shananigans I snatched my hand away and he walked away, after which I trod in a fresh pile of shit, which you can see smeared all over the ground. Now, I'm not saying I saw him put it there, BUT..... I'm pretty sure I didn't set my tripod up next to a fresh turd. Perhaps I wasn't as wise as I thought I was.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
