I've got a bit of a soft spot for the Maasai folks.*
From the Daily Mail:
The Prince of Wales, Duke of Cornwall, Prince and Great Steward of Scotland – Charles already has his fair share of grand titles.I rather liked this bit:
But today in Tanzania he was given a more humble name by a Maasai tribe, Oloishiru Ingishi – ‘the one who makes cows cry’.
The prince was awarded the honour during a visit to Mount Kilimanjaro, on the last day of his official tour of Tanzania....
New titles: Price Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall admire necklaces givento them by the Maasai tribe in Arusha, Tanzania
...Charles's new name in the tribe's language is Helper of Cows, which literally translates as ‘the one who makes cows cry’....MORE
...Charles then caused great mirth - rather unintentionally - among the assembled press pack when, in a speech to thank the Maasai for their hospitality, he told the gathered tribesman to have a look at his website for information about the environment....Hey, no one ever claimed he was bright.
To the Maasai People: On The Anniversry of 9/11, Thanks For the Cows
There are groups of people I put in the mental filing cabinet with the label Bad Ass.
In "Just a Friendly Heads-up: Don't Mess With a Gurkha, They Think 1 on 40 is a Fair Fight" I of course linked to the story of the Gurkha who decided to stop a gang rape.
He killed three, wounded eight and chased the other 29 off.
He had a knife against firearms.
That post also had my recollection of a conversation with an old Turkish dude. He told me that during the Korean war the Turks didn't think they were outnumbered by the Chinese until the odds got over
5 or 6 to 1....
