Incredible pictures of one of Earth's last uncontacted tribes firing bows and arrows

Daily Mail: It is extraordinary to think that, in 2008, there remain about a hundred groups of people, scattered over the Earth, who know nothing of our world and we nothing of theirs, save a handful of brief encounters. (update: 1, 2)

The uncontacted tribes, which are located in the jungles of South America, New Guinea and a remote and the beautiful and remote North Sentinel island in the Indian Ocean all have one thing in common - they want to be left alone.

And for good reason. The history of contact, between indigenous tribes and the outside world, has always been an unhappy one.

Contact is usually a disaster for these remote tribespeople, who live a life probably unchanged for more than 10,000 years. Even if the loggers do not shoot them (which they often do) or force them off their land, diseases against which these isolated humans have no resistance typically wipe out half an uncontacted tribe's numbers in a year or two.

Ms Ross added: 'These pictures are further evidence that uncontacted tribes really do exist. The world needs to wake up to this, and ensure that their territory is protected in accordance with international law. Otherwise, they will soon be made extinct.'

We've been goofing around on this blog for too long, so it's time to get freaking serious! I posted this cause I learned about androgony from my synchromystic buddies. And am opening up to it for the first time. So join me, in loosening BS filters, take this stuff and your gender lightly, why so serious? Remember when I said back to normal yesterday, haha there's no such thing.

A transcendent seraphim radiating light and creativity, a horrid abomination of darkness wallowing in wickedness, or some unnatural merger of the two. The status of this enigmatic visual artist is still up for debate.

I saw a man upon the stair
A little man who wasn't there.
He wasn't there again today -
Gee, I wish he'd go away!
