Don't vampire bats actually live in India? Do they count? Because that would be a pretty easy way to make some money, then.

A similar program here could quickly take care of our goth / emo / Twitard / vampire wanna-be sub cultures. They would get the repression they crave, we could collect bounties. Win / win!

As vampires turn to dust upon death, I may be able to profit by cleaning the back of my computer desk.

Wow. 1/2 a years wages is $2000.

In northern India, there is the BrahmarākŞhasa, a vampire-like creature with a head encircled by intestines and a skull from which it drank blood.

Whoa.

Why doesn't the werewolf chick in Twilight run around with her boobs flopping around since the rest of them go shirtless?

No our politicians fight with each other and when they can't come to an agreement, half of them go home and get fined thousands of dollars for not showing up (remember it's tax dollars that pay these bastards). That's the way we do business around here. We are also partial to leasing large chunks of land for YEARS just to be the only state in the black. *face palm*
Mind if I ask what in the world is brining you here from CA?

For every story about how modern and educated India is, there are three of these stories about barbaric tribal practices and folk superstitions straight out of the 14th century.

Do you really want to see a chick with 6 tits?!?!?

Ok, don't answer that.

Why does ... oh forget it. I hate Twilight too much to continue this post.

I was quite surprised by how superstitious even well-educated Indians are when I was working there last year. One of the software engineers I was working with changed his name based on the advice of a numerologist and another consulted a different one to see whether their upcoming marriage would be auspicious. Big on horoscopes too. Their fatalism definitely shows on the roads.

It would have been poor manners to ask if they really were farking morons, so I contented myself with eating beef every day in my hotel.

Because twilight's audience is 95% straight female.

Flash_NYC: Cue NYT's Thomas Friedman on why American workers can't compete globally due to our education system.


Thing is, not EVERYTHING is about 'cheapest'. Lots is, but not everything. As such, in order to justify the higher US labor costs, we have to be 'more efficient'. This means things like higher productivity or being able to effectively do things they can't.

Both of which tend to be enabled by higher levels of education. But it can be hard - you need superior education, and India has made large gains while we've stagnated. Other realms include infrastructure and access to raw materials. Which, again, India(and China) has made large strides in.

Oh, and on the OP: I've seen enough news of this sort to believe that the whole world is superstitious as heck.

It's a total scam. Everbody knows that when you sucessfully kill a vampire it turns to dust/bursts into flames

/used to be a summer intern for Vampire$ inc. Jack Crow is a real SOB to work for.

The amazing thing about India and its billion+ people in that relatively small country...they produce some of the world's smartest people, yet they still have some of the world's dumbest tribal-type groups. I can understand these mythological-fearing people still existing in various places in Africa, but you'd think knowledge would be more pervasive in India.
