How Communism Works"

But for most of the world's population, this perfect society just isn't possible. Communism is one proposed solution to these problems. Most people know what communism is at its most basic level.

The Truth About Christmas [NSFCWCC] (Not Safe For Christians Who Celebrate Christmas)

The wonderful holiday season where we all come together and deck the shit out of our halls and jingle all the way. Because if you’re gonna’ jingle why half ass it? You jingle all the way damn it! But most importantly, Christmas is the celebration to mark the birth of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Wrong. I don’t know why the truth angers people so much, especially when it comes to religious beliefs and customs but I explained what I am about to explain to you to a few “Christians” last year and it was not well received. Let’s start with the easy stuff. Contrary to what you may think, Christmas wasn’t even a widespread holiday celebrated in colonial America.

Well then, you owe Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii a debt of thanks. While color film was still years away from development, the chemist-turned-photojournalist developed his own solution to capture the vivid colors of his native home.

The Easter Island “Heads” Have Bodies. Maybe this isn’t a newsflash to anyone but me, but, um, the Moai “heads” on Easter Island have bodies.

But the bodies (generally not including legs, though there is at least one kneeling statue) are there — in many cases, underground. What’s even more interesting — there are petroglyphs (rock markings) that have been preserved below the soil level, where they have been protected from erosion.
