We saw this duo in a street market in Paris. Not sure what the pig and kitten had to do with the candies the woman was selling… but she let us pay her to take this picture.

Pigs. What is the best temperature to scald a pig after slaughter to ease the removal of hair?
I am killing a pig for Christmas to cook on the spit roaster. I am unsure what is the ideal temperature (and proceedure) to ‘scald’ the pig after death to remove it’s hair. It is a black pig so the ‘pigment’ will have to be removed also. Les Australia.

150-155F

Scraping is real work if you scald right and impossible if you don’t. Hotter is not better.

Um – I don’t think you are going to get the pigment out – it is in there pretty tight…

    @Vanessa88rox 13
    before saying that follow this steps:

    1. locate russia and africa in a map

    2. study some history

    3. realize that russia isnt close to africa, and that there hasn´t been any historical fact that led to african people to migrate to russia.

    4. do you expect them to look for kids all over the world, just for you to be happy, those are russian kids, of course russians aren´t black, chinese nor tanned, they have light hair skin and eyes

  22. ranebow5 says:

  23. emodude12099 says:

    she said that the girls walk ugly and who taught them… which i thought was rude cuz theyre just kids but ok watever

  24. dzizna says:

    well because there are not much, actually very little ,kids of african descency in moscow, in russia itself.

  25. Smirv says:

    anyone know the name of the song that starts around 1:44? I love that song.

  26. GirlsStateAlumni09 says:

    Its not provocative dancing, its the style of hip hop. Hip hop dancing involves popping and rolling your body. Just like ballet involves men holding your body while you dance, and people don’t see that as provocative. Its just a style of dance, and while I understand dance can be provocative, popping your body in hip hop is just a dance move to show off your skill.

  27. earieknight says:

    that was really good some of the lil kids should’ve doen the older danicng but all in all i wish i could do that one day do a flash mob ^_^

  28. thepurplepuffball says:

    @BDLexiiJackson I respect your opinion, and I very much respect the fact that you don’t change it depending on other people. *But* I am not a hater, I spent time on the video because I thought it was very cool. I just wanted to voice my opinion. I don’t want to pursue an argument with anyone, including you. That is my opinion and I appreciate the quality of dance these kids did and I appreciate your opinion and respect.

  29. superDJgirls says:

    there good

  32. SherriHallion says:

    @barfetta3000 um.. you obviously have no idea where singapore is. singapore isnt a 3rd world counrty and all kids are fine here. maybe do your research before you say something like that next time :)

  33. fatdrunkfeet06 says:

    shut up, they were good, just leave it at that, stop thinking about all the negative and focus on the fucking talent they have!… stop being immature about shit, its 2011 and if you haven’t noticed, the elementary kids are learning high school shit and kids know A LOT more then they used to. So get over it.

  34. Barfetta3000 says:

    @SemiautomaticxxxAqua I agree. Its totally inappropriate. All those girls will be pregnant at 15. Watch.

  35. Barfetta3000 says:

    @lordnhoj Or Krumping from the MadTv skit.

  36. Barfetta3000 says:

    We should not be surprised at what corporations like H & M would sink to in order to sell their wares. They make little kids sew clothing while their hands are bleeding in Singapore for 16 hours a day at only a penny. They have no qualms about making little girls dance like sluts to sell clothes. Welcome to Corporate WHOREMERICA.

  37. Barfetta3000 says:

    @jsadeghi1 I agree. Dancing is great for kids but come on, not like this. It does not matter if they KNOW its provocative or not.. IT IS.

  38. Barfetta3000 says:

    @woodstock767 I agree. LOTS of white men in that crowd…

  39. asianboy344 says:

    please check out my new dance video,thank you^^

  40. Luxmjya says:

    Also, FUCK Appropriate. It’s not like they’re on the Ground humping something. That’s not what they intended and you know it. It’s only provocative if someone has the tendency of being provoked. So stop projecting your sexual dilemma on their innocent fun. Their hips shake and it’s THEIR fault if YOU find it sexual?? Absurd.

    The Song is called “Set It Off” By Izza Kizza

    fuckin beast

  44. AKsgurl42 says:

    dis was hellz a gud! (:

  45. BDLexiiJackson says:

    @thepurplepuffball But like I said that is what they are taught. They are just little kids learning how to dance and that dancing is called hip hop and in hip hop thats what you do get it? You have your opinion and I have mine and you can’t make me change it. I am not about to be like some fools that are on here and argue with you cuz I have a life that I want to go back to. Good job kids you are beautiful dancers and keep dancing you are going to be big one day. This hater just aint worth it.!

  46. EltongLoberternos says:

    WOW! These kids are great… to bad us adults have a hard time grasping the joy that everyone around them was celebrating while watching these happy kids come together and show us all how life can be fun.

  47. thepurplepuffball says:

    @BDLexiiJackson Yup. True that. The world needs dance teachers who don’t have little girls doing things they shouldn’t.

  48. ArtyomQWERTY says:

    this is africa?

  49. BDLexiiJackson says:

    @thepurplepuffball Well they were taught to do that by their dance teacher and if it is “PROVOCATIVE” to you then ok, but Im not changing my opinion. I think that the dance was very well put and I liked every move they did so you can have your opinion and I will have mine. And like I said the moves were what they were taught they might not even mean like that. You don’t know and I don’t and thats how that goes.!

  50. ElecktraSmith says:

    I wonder how yuo join the H&M Kids group…….Hmmmmmmm……….
    I know the WHOLE ENTIRE dance to this song for H&M Kids.

Speak Your Mind
