Ill most likely give that a go under your recommendation. :D



Edit: It takes some balls to do something like this, I mean if you boil it down to its foundations, I get the impression that if their tour guide was ever seen having so much of a good time he'd probably be killed and thats pretty fucked up. Surreal, truly is.

Ah yes, the threat of thermonuclear destruction, takes me back to my youth in the late 70s. I can remember when we got this http://www.atomica.co.uk/main.htm through the letter box and had this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ceVmnRlUEO8 on the Tv. Hardly filled you with optimism :lol:

Yeah I watched that one too. I see what you mean. Child soldiers is nothing new with shit like the Hitler Youth during WW2, but this guy basically killed a child and ate its heart for no real reasoning, apart from it gave him luck in battle, shit you only read about that in fantasy novels. Sick in the head.

When he said '70% of the women in Liberia have been raped' made my heart sink.

Careful, because as much as they might be true, there will be a lot of propaganda videos out there too.
Who the hell reads anything in sigs these days, unless it's an animated gif?

That would be a pretty hard statistic to verify. It's also very nice simple number.

With further investigation, turns out that it's 60-90% because they can't get a solid number and it's actually from a period of major instability rather than a modern statistic.

Still...
