In this country a person at 18 is deemed to be enough of a man to fight, kill or be killed in a war for this country. He's also deemed, at the same age, to be responsible and mature enough to decide who is the president of the country and who all the other elected officials are. It's not until 3 years later is he deemed responsible enough to buy a beer
18 year olds: Old enough to take orders/absorb gunfire.
21 year ollds: Old enough to make decisions.

Luka Magnotta, the so-called "Cannibal killer," has a devoted female fan base as well, the outlet reports. Accused Aurora shooter James Holmes had a legion of fan girls all his own, including Aurora, Colo., resident Misty Benjamin, who told reporters she was "physically attracted" to Holmes.
"When I get upset, I look at his picture and I calm down," she said at the time.
I find it hard to be surprised by the evilness of women.

Anybody else see the flick "Cloud Atlas"?
Cloud atlas was interesting for me because during the first half an hour I wanted to turn it off. I was bored but by the end I was sad to see it finished. The cinematography was fantastic as well as the visual effects. It might be a movie u need to see more than once but to me, at least it was worth it.
