Why does the American school system suck so bad?

murica fvck yeah! You know what has always puzzled us? We have always wondered "why is it that the American school system is so far behind that of Europe?". Well, after about one year of reading journals published by prominent economists, and leaders of coalitions for education , we have an answer. This answer is not very easy to understand unless you understand how America shifted it's political ideology following the war in Vietnam. Well, in order to completely get rid of any sort of feeling of school being government controlled (as was the case in Europe and the soviet union -our arch enemy?-) , we privatized sectors , most schools these days, although federally funded, are privately owned.

Do alpha house cats eat kittens?

You might be asking yourself "do male cats that breed with a female that already has kittens kill the kittens like lions do?". The answer is , luckily, no. Male domestic  cats are actually very caring to stray kittens, often if left in the wild, these cats will orphan stray kittens, and even share a majority of anything killed with them. Male house cat So no, male cats don't kill other male cats' kittens, although male cats will pwn the sh#$ out of other male cats to preserve their dominance over female house cats, this will never lead to death, but might lead to a few scratches.

Well, in reality it's actually quite simple, just follow our simple instructions and your cat will be the envy of the town for years ahead :) Cat on leash First  , a cat is a free-spirited, and practically untamable animal, it will never simply allow you to force it to put on a leash. Not to mention, a cat will always find a way to escape a standard neck only collar. For this purpose, use either a specialized "cat harness" , or a harness leash made for tiny dogs, unless you have a savannah cat . Second  , get the cat very comfortable with the harness.

Scarborough Fair is one of the few surviving original ballads of old England , Yorkshire province to be exact. It is often hailed as one of the few last remaining "medieval style"  pieces that are standardized. This piece is often performed through the use of an acoustic guitar or an old style "lute" -which is really just a more primitive guitar-. Scarborough Fair (click to enlarge) This man here performs some of the musical piece on a guitar, it's actually pretty good, check it out: No the background on the ballad is reminiscent of Hercules because it is about a single man that must go on impossible tasks , set by his wife rather than father, with the hopes of gaining  prize in the end (in this case it is a dirty old rag). The lyrics are as follows from the revision in 1888: " Are you going to Scarborough Fair?...

Postal service to cut sunday

The United States Postal Service has been hit hard by the advent of technology, such as text messaging, email , epostcards and most of all , those "green" ebills we all love so much. As a result they have struggled like crazy to make quota, and each year it just goes downhill. An answer to this deficit has been established, an unpopular one, but a solution nonetheless. This solution calls for the eradication of delivery on Saturdays, which has been a post delivery day since the advent of this country. Sunday is properly given off in observance of church service, if you are religious. no more mail on Sundays This is quite unpopular with older people, and especially the postal workers that are getting their hours cut.

But today we are serious when we say "evil can be scientifically detected" through what German scientists refer to as "dark spots". Often found not in thieves, or people that kill in crimes of passion (over love) , but in people that kill for pleasure. Dr Gerhard Roth with brain Dr. Gerhard Roth, a venerated professor of neurology , and professor of well over 20 years [in service] , has stated that "dark spots" are visible in the brains of all killers, and men that take joy in the torture of innocents (usually humans, but also animals). He sort...
