Thursday Humor? The Real Reason Venezuela Matters

Tyler Durden's picture




 

With toilet paper shortages, record high stock prices, a lack of staple food supply, and a black market currency hyperinflating its way into solving the toilet paper shortage; many continue to wonder why they should care about a Latin American country's collapse into socialist revolution. The answer, simply put, lies in the following map...

Countries shaded by number of Miss World winners...

(h/t @Amazing_Maps )

 

A Venezuelan has been the winner of Miss World more times that any other nation... do you really want that to go away?

 

 

The Miss Venezuela contestants show that even with no toilet paper, one can still clean up nicely...

Now be a patriot and start buying Bolivars at the government rates...

Astonishing exotic beauties might arise of this mixed people
if they are very young. In neighboring Columbia Nicolas Gomez Davila stated while having the miscreants of this his continent and new world in mind : "God made the white and the black people. Not the mixed ones." Call me racist and have me banned, but if anything bans Latin America from ever catching up it will be Catholic belief systems in an eternal loser state of mind and screwed up genes as in mixed races.

Wait What's picture

there's a school of thought in LatAm that supports part of the asshat's argument. basically there's caste system in LatAm that inculcates the inferiority of mixed race and dark people in their minds. it gets spread through the media, religious, and education system, filling their little heads with drivel about what is and should be. it's one of the reasons interbreeding (most commonly european blooded male-indigineous female) has been frowned upon for centuries. but stopping guys from having sex with pretty girls of any race is like stopping a tsunami, not gonna happen.

the part that makes no sense is his genetics argument. selectivity in genetic traits is one of the hot reasearch topics in biotech. if you can mix the better traits of separate races, net of anomalys/mutations, you can create some amazing creatures... like those venezuelans beauties.

most confusing about his argument is this: who is the wealthiest (reported) human on earth? last i checked it was Mr. Slim, from Latin America.

you seem to be confusing genetics with culture(statehood?). being of lebanese descent doesn't negate the 100+ years his family spent in LatAm. by that logic, the only real 'americans' or 'brazilians' or 'canadians' are natives, not those german/english/portuguese/african bastards running around the americas today. note that there isn't one american (latin or otherwise) of prominence who didn't have a father/grandfather/great-grandfather from the old world.

the qualities about girls from non-developed world countries you're looking for is their disinclination to be antagonists or feminists. they've been told their place, accept it, and don't get all uppity when a guy reminds them. it's by far the most distinguishing characteristic, whether asian, latin american, african or eastern european. speaking generically, of course. there will always be a few rabblerousers, but even Ms. Kirchner knows she would be nothing without her husband's fame.

The map is confusing at first because you're trying to force your brain to process the information while at the same time it's trying to figure out "where the hell is the larger version of picture I clicked on to see?"  After you scroll down a bit and see that the picture is there, you're brain calms down and when you scroll back up (eventually) the map makes perfect sense.  This is how it worked for me at least.

Those young ladies don't need any toilet paper because you'd eat a mile of their "s%*t" to get a whiff of their asses!...

I live in Venezuela, Yes there is a lot of beautifull woman, but think that bourdeos in france are more beautifull.  ¿Why?  They are more natural !.

Now we have toliet paper, but is missing the corn and wheat flour and sugar, that is very bad, a lot of people are saying bad word to goverment in the supermarket.  What will happend? Nobody know.  The problem is not how bad is the goverment, the problem is that the oposition is worse. The oposition just want a check in blank to save the country, dont have a clean path to resolve the problems, them very few believe in they.  A lot of people believe that the oposition just want to take the goverment to stealth the petro dollars.  God save us !

And who is providing the credit to the businesses to bring in that "toilet paper"?

Should we take a guess?!!!

What people should find astounding is how rich in resources your Country is and that you would be handicapped in such a way by the U.S. banks is unforgiveable.

Yes, the u.s. banking cartel are doing a great dirty job with the credit rating of venezuela, that never miss a international payment.

But the main problem are we, the venezuelan people, that with a lot of resources: Petroleum, Gold, Uranium, Threes, Water, better climate, we don`t want to work, myself included.  The venezuelan dream is be the president of the country, to control and steal the petro dollars and buy a real state in Miami and Europe, to live the last days with our girl model of the year.   When we change in our minds we will have everything!, but now we have what we deserve !

Is there a country anywhere on Earth where the ideal is to only have what we earn?  To never use force on others and never allow it to be used on us?

I think there is a country like that, but it's still in the future.

Let us go there as fast as we can, even if there are nightmares in the way.

While what you write about may be a Utopian Dream it will never happen. The flaw in Volunteerism is that you cannot force others to adopt it.

 

There will always be some, actually most, that will choose enslavement over freedom. They will not volunteer to leave your voluntary society.

 

So will you force them out? Will you use passive aggression and ostracize them, starve them, so that they "choose" to leave?

 

Are they free to choose enslavement and security (even false) over that of freedom and risk?

 

I am not supporting statism. No. But I am supporting realism.

 

Get your head out of the clouds and stop dreaming for that which can never manifest due to the folly of the many. Humans are imperfect. Because of their imperfection they will choose what seems to be the easiest path while heading toward self destruction.

 

THERE ARE NO POLITICAL SOILUTIONS..

How does one wipe one's own ass without Toilet Paper?

 

There is nothing deep or allegorical about his statement as it is just a matter of practicality.

You, Sir, apparently never heard of the Middle East.  The Arabs never devised toilet paper, so they just use their left hand and, maybe, a bottle of water.  You can tell where Arabs have been crapping by the profusion of empty water bottles around on the ground OR the pools of water spilled all over an indoor toilet stall, empty water bottles, and the bizarre mess created when someone squats over the toilet facing the wrong direction, craps on the seat, dumps water all over everything, and manages to NOT use the TP.  Horrifying.  Makes you want to hold it in all day until you return to your safe bathroom.

BTW-I once met a provincial reconstruction guy from the US Govt who was part of a move to update the Iraqi cops.  He told me they would take a building, gut it, renovate it, bring it up to US standards, and hand it over to the Iraqis.  2 weeks after handing one of these new buildings to the Iraqis, he went back to make sure they had done a good job.  He went up to the bathroom on the 2nd floor and was horrified to discover they had destroyed the plumbing.  Once the toilets didn't work, they proceeeded to shit on every square inch of the bathroom floor until it was fully covered, then they found a room down the hall and decided to turn that into the new bathroom and started shitting there.  Truly one of the world's great cultures...

Yes, The Koran says to use your left hand or have a slave girl use her hands to clean your backside.  I was at the Houston international airport and saw an arab washing his feet in a public water fountain used for drinking.

I feel sorry for Barbara Eden.

I can vouch for that frozen rock in the north Atlantic. Spent 3 months there in 1996. Never in my life have I seen so many ridiculously beautiful women concentrated in one tiny place (Reykjavik). Had to be careful though....they start hitting the club/bar scene at very young ages (14-16), and there were even night spots frequented by those of the cougar flavor. So much eye candy my head hurt from trying to take it all in.....

no doubt about it, there is something other-worldly in the aesthetics down there-abouts.  something like a pleasure dome lofting, lilting and lidding over most areas of columbia and venezuela; las mujeras estan bonita...muy, muy bonita!  mi encanta!

they're basically sweet, too.  it's the oddest and most unfamiliar sensation an american can possibly imagine...they actually want to please their men.   strange...evah-so strange...fine-ass american pussy is almost never sweet; and if'n any in the american relationship are to be pleased, you it ain't, my brothers.

my humble ambition is to impregnate the entire nation, and its western neighbor...gentrification on the grandest fathomable scale.

okay, quick version: there was venezuela, there was a hasienda, there was an angelically beautiful latina...there was therefore el magnifico, janus.  

but, that, gentlemen, is a sealed book...i'm a married man; and i was likewise at the time.  but i love her still; though i'm sure she's by now raising her own beautiful brood, sired by a man who couldn't possibly appreciate her, i nevertheless miss her...with searing and abiding pain, loss and vacuous longing.
