Anthropologist Wade Davis is one of the world's great story tellers, with personal adventures to match. An Explorer-in-Residence at National Geographic, he specializes in hanging out with traditional peoples and exploring their religious practices.

He first came to public notice with his discovery of the reality of zombies in Haitian voodoo and the substance used to poison them---chronicled in his 1985 book, "The Serpent and the Rainbow". He is the author of 13 books, including "One River" and "Shadows in the Suns", and has hosted, written, and starred in numerous television specials, including "Earthguide," "Light at the Edge of the World," "Spirit of the Mask," and "Forests Forever." This talk is based on the prestigious Massey Lectures that Davis gave in Canada in 2009.

In this video between 1:30 and 1:35, Wade Davis talks about common human traits and being an ingrate - really fucks it for the person who pulls that crap. There is only a spoken line or two. And you have to pay attention to catch it.

Being rude and acting superior is really frowned upon in ALL of the known human societies.... Everywhere.

This is why shit head women and their feminist garbage, do so badly in later life and the arrogance and the delusions of their youth, come back to haunt them when they become older and infertile.

The cock carousel riding sluts - having blown the whole issue of pair bonding and the wife for life opportunity, having chased the shallow idiots because they are shallow idiots, and failed to marry and settle down for a GOOD MAN - who while not perfect is "perfect enough", they also miss out on being a part of a FAMILY, and having an abundance of children, and a really great life.

And after finding themselves desperate, old and dateless, "have to settle for" the "perfect enough" man....

Well the "perfect enough" man, ought to tell these money grubbing, resource sucking OLD sluts to just fuck off and leave these tramps eating the garbage out of the gutters, where they come from and where they belong.
