Origins of the Violin
The Rabab The origins of the violin are uncertain and open to debate, but it is generally agreed the instrument we know today in western music as the violin had its origin in the Arabic rabab. The rabab had two strings made of silk attached to an endpin and strung to pegs used to tune the strings in fifths. The rabab was fretless with a pear shaped body made of gourd and a long neck. The instrument was held on the lap and played using a bow with resin rubbed on its string. No images or examples exist of this instrument but it is described in documents dating from the late 9th century.
The Rebec As a result of the European crusades, an instrument called the rebec based on the rabab appears first in Spain during the middle 11th century. The rebec differs from the rabab only slightly: The rebec has three strings instead of two, the body is made of wood rather than gourd, and the instrument is placed at the shoulder to play rather than on the lap.
So I guess what I'm trying to say is, by all means, today, be satirical but careful of the printed comments.
If someone is a trouper he or she does what needs to be done without complaining or whining. A trouper is also part of a troupe, or a group of people, usually an acting troupe or theatre troupe. If someone is a trooper he or she is a soldier at entry level or an officer in the police.
don't drink beer we invented that also oh and steam we invented that also
but the first barley beer was most likely born in the Middle East. ... Beer consumption also flourished under the Babylonian Empire, but few ancient cultures loved knocking back a few as much as the Egyptians

Oh for carp sake. If this is true, then I want every non-white to stop driving gas powered cars. White people created the car, and electric powered homes, and many many things. OH you say don't be stupid there Guyfriday, well how about this;
A few months ago I was told to stop driving my Lincoln Towncar because it's a "Black people car". What the F...… What is wrong with these people. Black dude had a White girl friend, and had to go there about my car. These dumb-ass anti-cultural appropriation people need to figure out what is part of a culture, and what isn't. Then they need to look around at what culture they are in before they open their mouths.
Now I'm going to go off and play my didgeridoo, my bag pipes, and any other loudly sounding instrument that sounds bad when played by someone who doesn't have a clue how to play it.
