Bit of a mixed bag for you all today...
THE BIG WALK
The daring step of this guy blew my mind. I had vertigo just watching. The place is El Camino Del Rey in Spain. The walkway was built in 1905 and has fallen into disrepair, and although people are warned not to take the walk, many people still do and quite a few have fallen and died. That’s what makes this guy’s walk so scary, he doesn’t seem to take any precautions just keeps on going...amazing!!
PERMISSABLE IMPURITY – Managed by God!
This article is about the rules of Sharia Law for investments but its really about bending the rules with 'permissable impurity'... interesting justifications going on here!
DARA AND SARAH DONT WANT TO PLAY WITH BARBIE AND HER FRIENDS
And last but not least is the story of Barbie, Spiderman and Harry Potter all being banned from Iran for their destructive cultural and social consequences. While importing the toys is not necessarily illegal, it is discouraged by a government that seeks to protect Iranians from what it calls the negative effects of Western culture and smuggled imports pose a threat to the “identity” of the new generation.
Barbie is sold wearing swimsuits and miniskirts in a society where women must wear head scarves in public and men and women are not allowed to swim together.
In 2002, Iran introduced its own competing dolls — the twins Dara and Sara — who were designed to promote traditional values with their modest clothing and pro-family stories. But the dolls proved unable to stem the Barbie tide.
Yeah, mustn’t let things get too out of hand, throw that Barbie doll into the bin girls and get your scarf back on..... your identity is slipping!
