In a week and a half, Gormley has proven herself to be a ruthless manipulator, chair stealing opportunist, and world vomiting champion (volume to body size category). She has no idea what her claws are for, nor that she is capable of any sort predation. Also, her eyebrow whiskers make her look a bit like an evil wizard.

The Kowloon Walled City was a singular Hong Kong phenomenon: 33,000 people living in over 300 interconnected high-rise buildings, built without the contributions of a single architect, ungoverned by Hong Kong’s safety and health regulations, covering one square city block in a densely populated neighborhood near the end of the runway at Kai Tak airport. In collaboration with Ian Lambot, I spent five years photographing and becoming familiar with the Walled City, its residents, and how it was organized. So seemingly compromised and anarchic on its surface, it actually worked -and to a large extent, worked well. The Walled City was torn down in 1992 but the photographs, oral histories, maps and essays in our book provide the most thorough record of daily life in a place that was a true Hong Kong original.
it’s confusing because tortilla bags here are small flat non-stretchy things. i do like the idea of them being sold in giant condom-like bags in your part of the world thoughYeah, they’re flat here too, but they’re basically like bread bags as opposed to those ziplock style ones big companies sell, so you can fit an appropriately absurd number of tortillas in there. I think the hats are shaping the pointy ends of the bags so they look more condomesque.

Yeah, that’s what most people seem to think, which kind of makes it funnier. I love how many people are just like “ZOMG, WITCHCRAFT!” too.
I guess you could do it with a condom, if it was very large and unlubricated. Oh god, now I’m just imagining this becoming one of those bro fads (a la planking), and them getting interviewed on Good Morning America as the Fedora Condom Race guys.
Technically I am in this too, because that photo on the wall is of me moodily pressing my face against a tree trunk when I was 18.
Some commenter on youtube seemed really incredulous when Asa told them they used tortilla bags, because apparently northerners eat tiny, anemic tortillas. Tortillas are a big deal here dudes, we eat a lot of them. These are like, medium sized tortilla bags.
