Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

It never ceases to amaze me what people are willing to put into their bodies in the name of better health or a better erection... (mostly erections, as witnessed by the numbers of rhinos being poached)
