Why can't governments allow those nice people to go some place nice in nature with some nice shotguns and shoot eachother ? That would be a good thing for everyone , those 'people' happy , the world less populated with brainless masochistic agressive ehm.. people ( i think you still have to call them, although they barely qualify) greetz 😉

    How is it only one person commented on the dick festival, I rue the day when the majority of people are too concerned about the rights of fish to laugh a society that makes and celebrates giant inanimate phalli. Thank you for destroying my faith in humanity…

    It's actually fairly common throughout history to celebrate phallic symbols. In ancient Rome they were considered good luck charms and were carved out of stone placed either above the door, on gateways, and even necklaces, to break someone's stone phallic was a serious deal.

  • There is one armor that the world of men and women, as a world, has never yet put on. The churches have long bungled with its fastenings, but the world has gone unfended, and few have been those in whose hands the mystical sword of the spirit has shone with daily use. This armor, waiting to be worn, is the armor of brotherhood and sacrifice, the world of unselfishness, a conquering sword, with the power, where used, to unite the world in love. And there are none who may not put it on. ~M.A. DeWolfe Howe
