First off, that`s not a boat. It`s a damn tree trunk. Secondly, that`s not a family of Malaysians messing around. That`s my new neighbor and their kids.

First off, the boat wasn`t sinking. It`s made of wood, and wood floats. You could drag it to the bottom, and it would float to the top. The problem was, it was full of water. I must say that I admire her skills in getting the water out, although I`m sure that any member of her tribe older than 12 has been taught and allowed to practice the same thing.

When I was a kid, we used to take my grandpa`s Grumman canoe down to the swimming hole and swamp it. It had air pockets in the bow and stern, so it couldn`t sink, but we would paddle around in it with water flowing over the gunwales.

Righting it took a different procedure, though: 2 people had to get in the water, turn it upside down, and get under it, one at each end, facing each other. Then on the count of 3, they would literally throw it up and to one side, flipping it over in the process. (It was 19` long, but it only weighed ~70 lbs. Then they had to get in at the same time from opposite sides.

So I`d like to know where, you got the notion
Said I`d like to know where, you got the notion

To rock the boat, don`t rock the boat, baby
Rock the boat, don`t tip the boat over
Rock the boat, don`t rock the boat baby
Rock the b-o-a-t

the only thing these people use land for is sleeping and cooking. Their lives are spent on the water. Awesome people.
