This is an interesting piece from “Slate” on what people shoot at for target practice around the world.
Some made sense.
Ours is a bad guy with a gun.
The South African one is an enemy soldier with a gun.
Some were simple but practical like Kurdistan:
The others made me wonder…
Not sure why housewives and farm animals are targeted in Germany.
Guess they take “bullseye” literally over there.
Children dressed in huge “fly collars” from the 1970s?
Is that what Al Qaeda wears in the United Arab Emirates? Are there roving gangs of retro disco cults assaulting people with horrible music and awful fashion sense? There’s no bottom to these targets, but I’m assuming they are told to be on the look out for platform shoes and bell bottoms on potential suspects.
(This is very easy to spot as the typical Emirati wears no pants at all, just a man-dress)
It sorta makes sense. Just imagine that Arabs are the extremely retired “don’t give a crap” types.
Think about it. They are BORN retired and have developed a whole culture that resembles a Florida retirement community.
They basically wear bath robes and comfortable shoes.
They don’t work.
They are given government stipends from oil and gas revenues.
Their whole mindset is “I could die today, so why bother with traffic lights or seat belts?”
They even have people that wander around and give you tickets for not wearing the right clothes. Literally the “Fashion Police!”
That still doesn’t explain why there are bands of disco terrorists roaming their country however. I guess this requires more in depth research.
