Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 231 People

    Im amazed at the inability of some people to

    Not long ago I heard a story about a guy who had to pull his car over because he was having a heart attack... some 17 year old kid found him like that, dying in his car, and instead of helping him, the kid pushed him out of the car and stole his wallet and then his car. WTF...

    Nature And Reasons For Human Experience

    If you listen to science, we have no purpose. The Universe was born out of an imaginary white hole, the big bang. Careers and the egos of scientists are no different from the egos of warmongers, dictators or even so called Saints. They are limited in their abilities and forever...

    Capitalism Is The One To Blame

    Humanity is dying and we are taking the world we live in, and all life in it, with us. Our suicidal tool? capitalism. Replacing compassion and fellowship with  cold buy/sell relationships. See one starving to death? well, society must not help that person, is that person's...

    Manners!
