Look out below!

Here’s a link to a quick story and video on Asian Indians throwing their babies off fifty-foot buildings to increase the infants’ chances of survival in life. The kids land (hopefully) on outstretched sheets held like nets by other villagers. They’ve been practicing this ritual for more than 500 years.

When I first saw this I thought, “This is crazy; what a bunch of idiots!” Then I started thinking, “Hey, wait a minute, these people aren’t stupid, they know exactly what they are doing. In fact, they are taking over the world, peacefully, unnoticed…one telemarketing job at a time.”

    I’ve seen a video news story on this and it’s absolutely nuts! Each of us is born with only 2 ‘hard-wired’ fears (the rest are learned). The fears are 1) loud noises, and 2) FALLING. (I teach this as a basis of overcoming presentation anxiety) So this terrified infant is dropped about 5-stories. MOST hit the sheets although they are immediately in need of a diaper change. SOMETIMES a few bounce off the sheet and land on the street. Then the crowd plays ‘reconnect the dots.’
