The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws.

This is why I love archaeology. Some things just don't change.
"Experts says Stone Age man invented beer before he made bread.
Archaeologists have found that man first discovered alcohol in 9000 BC, more than 5,000 years earlier than previously thought.
According to The Sun they reckon pottery was invented because man needed a mug to hold his beer."

You want specifics on Iraq's weapons program? Here. They had equipment to enrich uranium on a wide scale. There are pictures. They had the material to manufacture 200 tons of VX gas (enough to kill everyone on the planet.) These are UN weapons inspectors. People who were on the ground and saw this shit with their own eyes.

Well... nice to know that if anyone nukes the Mall of America we'll survive the blast but die of radiation. Of course that's assuming a 1-megaton bomb.
Did you know that enough Uranium to build a bomb would fit into 8 soda cans? Me neither.
Doesn't that brighten your day?
So damn well go enjoy it. Tell them you love them. Make your time worthwhile. There are no guarantees.
