There's a lot of penises in that slideshow.
Not that I'm complaining.
They just hide the tip.

Last video I saw of this tribe they were VERY aggressive to outsiders. Has it been confirmed that the tribe didn't attack the miners?

If the tribe thought the miner didn't belong on their land and attacked them thing get muddier.
 
2017-09-13 12:32:14 PM  
did they at least have badges?
 
2017-09-13 12:32:51 PM  
Too bad the tribespeople won't just go all Cannibal Holocaust on them.

I thought this kind of thing was against the Prime directive.

Anyone linking to aol.com has no right claiming that someone else is out of touch with the modern world.

Gold miners have been killing the indigenous in Brazil for decades, but I'm glad we finally have someone to blame.

And that the perpetrators are not American, or work for an American company?

But yeah.  Trump.  He also caused me to lose my car keys, and stole my kid's skateboard from the porch.

I love the smell of cyanide and sulfuric acid in the morning.

Also, I'm having trouble feeling morally superior to the Brazilians based upon the USA's treatment of its own indigenous people.

Where you see Hell, I see a spellbinding sense of purpose. I see the value of keeping your eye on the ball. When a bride slips the ring on her finger, when a businessman lays his hands on a Rolex, when a rapper gets a shiny new tooth, this is that cost, Mr. Beck, my horror for their beauty, my Hell for their little slice of Heaven. Somebody's gotta keep his eye on the ball. That somebody is me, Mr. Beck. I am down here every day, keeping my eye on the ball. That's just a simple fact of life. And if you're bold enough to face that cold hard fact... you can make a lot of money.

Fark: Pic is not from the movie, The Rundown.
UltraFark: Pic is from the Serra Pelada gold mine in Brazil. It is no longer operational.

When I heard rumors of there being multiple pee tapes, I honestly can say I didn't expect, well, that.
