The Patagones or Patagonian giants were a race of giant humans rumoured to be living in Patagonia and described in early European accounts. They were said to have exceeded at least double normal human height, with some accounts giving heights of 12 to 15 feet 3. Tales of these people would take a hold over European concepts of the region for some years. First mention of these people came from the voyage of Ferdinand Magellan and his crew, who claimed to have seen them while exploring the coastline of South America en route to the Maluku Islands in their circumnavigation of the world in the s. Antonio Pigafetta , one of the expedition's few survivors and the chronicler of Magellan's expedition, wrote in his account about their encounter with natives twice a normal person's height:. One day we suddenly saw a naked man of giant stature on the shore of the port, dancing, singing, and throwing dust on his head. The captain-general [i. Having done that, the man led the giant to an islet where the captain-general was waiting. When the giant was in the captain-general's and our presence he marveled greatly, and made signs with one finger raised upward, believing that we had come from the sky. He was so tall that we reached only to his waist, and he was well proportioned

The history of nudity involves social attitudes to nakedness of the human body in different cultures in history. The use of clothing to cover the body is one of the changes that mark the end of the Neolithic, and the beginning of civilizations. Nudity or near-complete nudity has traditionally been the social norm for both men and women in some hunter-gatherer cultures in warm climates and it is still common among many indigenous peoples. The need to cover the body is associated with human migration out of the tropics into climates where clothes were needed as protection from sun, heat, and dust in the Middle East; or from cold and rain in Europe and Asia. The first use of animal skins and cloth may have been as adornment, along with body modification, body painting, and jewelry, invented first for other purposes, such as magic, decoration, cult, or prestige, and later found to be practical as well. In ancient Greece , nudity became associated with the perfection of the gods. In ancient Rome , complete nudity could be a public disgrace, though it could be seen at the public baths or in erotic art. In the Western world, with the spread of Christianity, any positive associations with nudity were replaced with concepts of sin and shame.
By Karishma Dipa 9h ago. Being a hairdresser by day and drag queen performer by night has left Bernard Buys with little to no income for almost five months now. While grooming and beauty services have since resumed as part of updated lockdown regulations, Buys has not seen an influx of clientele as people still fear that the close contact required during these appointments poses a Covid risk. Buys, whose stage name is Betty Bangles, grew accustomed to pulling in crowds of people from all walks of life at least three times a week when he took to the stage at Beefcakes, a popular restaurant and party venue. With premises in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Pretoria, the establishment used to host birthdays, bachelorette and divorce parties, or even just a fun night out, where sexy waiters would serve meals and beverages while the crowd was entertained by world-class drag acts. We had it all, from clubs, theatres, movies and drag shows to live concerts. Now all those people sit without work. While putting her passion on hold for the foreseeable future pains Buys, the financial aspect of not being able to perform at Beefcakes for the foreseeable future has hit the drag queen and colleagues the hardest. Everyone is stressed. In a bid to provide economic relief to all Beefcakes staff and to keep those who are hungry for entertainment satisfied, those at the s-style theatre restaurant have joined forces to raise funds which will be shared among the performers, waiters and cleaning staff.

If you were the one who did the asking, it is simply chivalrous and gentlemanly for you to pay for dinner, the movie, or whatever else you do. I knew a guy who joined the Mormon church because he thought it would help him date a certain Mormon girl, a girl who refused to date non-Mormons.
