WARNING- THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS SOME INFO WHICH SOME MAY FIND DISTURBING OR UPSETING. 85 percent of the time, I like to think the world's a wonderful place. we have tecnology and nature all rolled into one delicious sushi-package, we all have different place to visit and new things to learn. most of the time, the world's a very pleasent, innocent place to be.
