NASCAR rocks. I’m going to go cut the sleeves of my t-shirt and get a beer.
Sorry mods. I will not post again.
Now you're making an unfair comparison by juxtaposing wearing burkas to wearing bombs.
I'm just trying to make a point: them wearing silly clothing is strange to us, but it's their culture. It doesn't harm anyone, just as racing cars doesn't harm anyone. Yes, you could stretch either of those and say that it harms the women who are oppressed, or the excessive fuel consumption of the racing increases our dependence on oil, etc., but you know what i mean.
From what i understand, the men are not allowed to see the woman (in full) until they marry her. Can you imagine? I guess there are many countries that still practice arranged marriages as well. At least you can say you married her for her personality and not for her looks, cuz you really didn't know!
