Tribesmen



Today we feature a photograph of Zulu Tribesmen. The picture was taken in the 1920's. The picture sort of reminds me of the movie "The Gods must be Crazy". I don't know if any of you remember that movie.

  1. Sorry, never saw that movie.

    12 above and still no snow. Did have a beautiful sunrise and sunset yesterday though.

    It is about time I got off those 7 and 8 letter verifis. I take all the 5's I can get

  2. Of course, I remember that movie. I loved it. It was funny. But didn't it take place in Australia? The Aborigine guy getting hit with a Coke bottle and trying to take it to the edge of the earth to throw it off.

  3. What are they eating? It looks like uncooked ramen noodles, but I know it is not.

    I never saw that movie.

    It is 45 with rain on on the way.

  4. 33 in Hutto, Tx and the rain has finally stopped. I think I see blue sky! PJM will be glad to know of all this Texas moisture. Midland even got snow!

  5. 5 letters osize, lucky me.

    Mild winter in Wisconsin. Dry and warm.

    I remember when a boy the missionaries would come to church and show movies and slides like this.

  7. Where do you figure they got that big metal (cast iron?) cooking pot?

  8. Interesting to contemplate that some of those warriors might be sons of members of the impis that fought in the Zulu wars of the 1890s, and fought the best of the Empire to a standstill...

  9. Wow. What an amazing photo. i bet it would be rare to find something like this in the time it was taken.
    Sure It's Relevant?

  10. Having lived most of my life in southern Africa, I can confirm that "The Gods Must be Crazy" was definitely made in South Africa. I still have one of those cast iron cooking pots, bought in the 1990s, and made to pretty much the same design as they were back in the early 1900s ... except mine is a No3 and I think that must be a No 5!
