Fucking savages.
http://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/two-weeks-234-abducted-nigerian-schoolgirls-are-still-missing-180951236/?utm_source=facebook.com&no-ist Horrific story about the sort of thing that goes on in the world. What's interesting is the studied effort to avoid talking about religion in the article. If a right-wing anti-abortion group bombed an abortion clinic tomorrow, would the Xtian religion be privilege to this sort of kid-glove treatment?
Obviously photos on the internet are hard to judge anything by, but remember that cherry darkens over time.

Like, to choose one, braking.
I always laugh; the Jeep Wrangler is consistently rated as the absolute worst car by Consumer Reports.
I'm halfway kidding. I think I could understand the appeal. The problem is that it has developed a real following amongst a pretty douchey group of people. Almost anyone here driving one of those is a high school or college-aged l lacrosse player with the Baltimore private school mullet and some slacker ballcap on having bought it with his parents' money. In that way, it's much like this forum. Not an inherently terrible thing to like clothes; it's the people that are...
