CARAVANSARY

Caravansary - This year we will create a caravansary that occupies the crossroads of a dreamland: a bazaar of the bizarre wherein treasures of every sort, from every land and age, flow in and out to be flaunted, lost, exploited and discovered. This is not a tourist destination, but a home for travelers who come here bearing gifts. Amid the twisting and the turnings of its souk, participants will come upon an inexhaustible array of teeming goods and unexpected services. Anyone may pose as 'merchant' here, and anyone may play a 'customer', but nothing in this strange emporium shall have a purchase price — no quid, no pro, no quo — no trade at all will be allowed in this ambiguous arcade. According to a rule of desert hospitality, the only thing of value in this 'marketplace' will be one's interaction with a fellow human being.

Hmmm. I don't recall Irish being represented on the chart. I think you will have to post a pic of your toes & let us determine. They aren't shaped like little potatoes are they?
sorry, this is at least three post deep thread drift. Not that this thread has any real direction anyway.

NO woman or man wants to, or should have to suffer the indignity of Camel Toe.

Now, there are two ways that you can ensure that the ultimate of fashion faux pas never, ever happens to you.

Method #1: You can invest in Caravansary Camelfage. “These aren’t your ordinary panty, they were specifically designed to smooth out your feminine and masculine parts under tight clothing. Yoga and exercise pants, leggings, tight shorts, skinny jeans or even some work trousers can have a shorter inseam. You have enough to worry about during dust storms; the last thing you need to think about is your panties riding up during the Temple burn.”

The insert is sewn into the panty or tutu – your protection is always secure! Learn more about how these work to keep you confident, comfortable and smooth in tight situations. You will feel safe and secure knowing you aren’t “the Sparkle Pony” everyone is laughing at behind your back.”

All of this is just lovely, of course and should you choose this method of dealing with the threat of Camel Toe, you can hurry on over to get your Caravansary Camelflage here.

But before you do…there is Method #2 for you to consider:

And it is this: Don’t wear the kind of horrible clothes that give you Camel Toe, to begin with.

Does that sound sensible?

Good. I’m glad.

Which method will work for you?
One day we'll look back on this and it will all seem funny.

Simon, you blew it. Unusual.

The one on the left is a Mennonite. There IS a difference.

No hair under his nose (no mustache) is the clue. Plus, hardcore old order Amish wouldn't have their picture taken...has something to do with 'graven images'

:!:
I am sooooo hoping we can keep religion out of Caravansary. Yes, I know, I know... but since nobody in BRC will stone or behead us for our beliefs, this is our grand opportunity to enjoy some eastern art and culture WITHOUT the eternal -- and sometimes murderous -- religious strife of the region. Please.

The secret order that Hasan bin Sabbah created had a significant impact on all subsequent cults and secret societies. During the Crusades, the Hashishins fought both for and against the Crusaders, whichever suited their agenda. As a result, the Crusaders brought back to Europe the Assassins' system, which would be passed down and mimicked by numerous secret societies in the West. The Templars, the Society of Jesus, Priory de Sion, the Freemasons, the Rosicrucians, etc. all owe their organizational efficiency to Hasan. In fact, the Illuminati had their origins in the mystical aspect of the Hashishin order, although most equate the Illuminati with the Bavarian Illuminati, which was a revised version of the Hashishin system.
