Haha, do you always want summer to be in June, July, and August? If adjustments for "leap" events were never made, you'd have night at 12noon and winter in July.

Picture this:

The Police are called to a guy who has barricaded himself in a building with hostages and the police have it completely surrounded and they say over the bull horn, "We have you completely surrounded, release the hostages and throw out your weapons and surrender....you have 61 seconds to comply"

Wooohahahahahaha Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh

Remember remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot...

I blame the 1-percent and bath salts.

War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

War = Life

I wonder what I did with that extra second?
Probably pouted.

Willie Wonka quotes..
What is this Wonka, some kind of funhouse?
Why? Are you having fun?
A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.
We are the music makers, we are the dreamers of dreams
