If you could translate the sounds they make into English, you would find that most animals are just yelling "HEY!!!" as loudly as they can.

There was a time when no-one knew the names of things like space, time, light, existence, gravity, energy, matter, life, consciousness, love, truth, bliss, etc.

Of course, these things existed long before we named them.

There may still be things for which we have no names.

There are probably far more things than there are names.

Who knows what these things are?

They used peat moss, grass, and pages from books.

There might even still be some people out there somewhere, who still have outhouses and use Sear's Catalogs... There were a few left, when I was a kid.

In Queen Victoria's time it was a crime to be a male homosexual. It was not a crime for women because Queen Victoria said "women would never do such a thing".

If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them,

also during Queen Victoria's reign, they believed that too much sexual thought was what made men lazy and not good workers.

To voluntarily atach something to yer penis that will stick pins (or worse!) in it if you start to get an erection, wtf!
