    You notice that thoise things are not great actions. However, you notice how they were dealt with swiftly and decisively. They were gone within a short time. If it were today, they would hqave hung around for decades appealing their decisions and wasting taxpayer money.
    So not too cool action but cool consequences.
    People think they are so rebellious and original, when really they are just banal, boring and dumb.

    I find that nothing calms a colicky baby faster, then letting them hang onto a broom stick while dangling over the edge of an eight story building!

    Alot to be said about the monsters that have always walked among us, but have quickly been forgotten.

    There was once a California town that was named Wineville, in honor of its primary crop, the grape.

    But in 1928, something so awful happened there that it wiped the name off the map. It was a series of child killings that will forever be known as the “Wineville chicken coop murders.” As many as 20 boys may have died there at the hands of sadistic sex maniac Gordon Stewart Northcott, 21. Newspapers dubbed him the “ape man” because of the thick black hair all over his body.

    I don't like the way animals were treated in the past.


    For that reason only I would not like to live in the past.
    Of course it's true that circuses mistreated (and continue to mistreat) animals, but I don't think that the general populace actually condoned cruelty towards animals, I just don't think they put them on the same pedestal that we do today, such as taking your dog or cat for a bath and a pedicure, but rather that they treated them as animals, let them do their own thing. I don't think that animal cruelty was frowned upon quite as much as today, but I also don't think it was appreciated. And there's plenty of animals being mistreated today, as well.
