I have to confess, when it comes to cooking, which I do a lot, I prefer propane to camel or buffalo dung. Much easier to control.
Unlike many MANY other things, if you are baking, control of the heat is a good thing. :)

Having no personal experience... I would advise stripping and letting the camel stomp and spit on your clothes. :)

I understand that the other Indians use cow dung for the same thing... Where are either of them going to get wood?

It's too bad we don't use more dung-fueled fires so that we could have an North American brown cloud in addition to the dust at Burning Man. Instead, we just get brush fires.

I would assume if the tribe had an issue with dignity, they would raise it properly with the BMORG via the usual channels. As to the price of servicing that particular windfall, it is still a free market.

Fer fuck's sake, they could at least spell Fukushima correctly in the headline if they spell it correctly in the body text. Though, they completely butcher the spelling of Tohoku in the body of the text, so I guess they really don't care.
