            I read somewhere that many women used rags and attached a string to them which they wrapped around their upper thigh to prevent the makeshift tampon from going in too far and made it easier to pull out. The things you do when researching a book you're writing...

                  When did turpentine come into play? I use it in my liniment mix w/ excellent result. Can also be used w/ ice cream 1x per week for gut health per Dr Jen Daniels. Please talk about Thieve's Oil too.

                                                    It sounds a lot similar to the Indian subcontinent of Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh where despite all that modern infrastructure society facade there was pollution and poverty and limited in both sanitation and plumbing. Yes they have electricity and lighting, can see that on Google Earth on night time but their standard of living was low and their mentality and behavior was unreliable and untrustworthy towards one another and towards foreigners. They strongly believe that outsiders with dark skin were thieves and violent troublemakers. I bet they might even assault Morgan Freeman, Denzel Washington, Laurence Fishburne, and Will Smith on vacation tour outside the modern and tourist parts of the Indian subcontinent. And proud of it to even participate in harming an innocent Black African from Africa or even a Black African American. Hey it is local meant for local consumption. It is a sick joke to even suggest much less support the notion that the Asian Indian could have uplifted themselves to an economically stable modern industrial state without the Europeans and East Asians. Ramesh "Sunny" Balwani the Asian Indian almost murdered hundreds of thousands of patients but instead arrested for massive fraud in a blood diagnostic device.

Why? Because most of us bathe minimum two times a day, and we think yall reek because yall shower like twice a week. This is an honest question, actually how often do most europeans bathe??

                                                                                            (meanwhile, westerners are more hygenic in the terms of bacterial management e.g. dont want to touch bathroom handles, etc)
