I didn't say it did...did I?
No, but you lamenting the fact that the US is more-or-less blamed for a lot of the global warming in the world after posting a story about a nuclear disaster in the USSR makes little sense.

There are plenty of shitholes all over the earth. The U.S. is pristine compared to other industrial nations.
Amen to that. Though global warming is an issue for which the U.S. greatly contributes to it, there is a lot of **** polluting all over the world, **** which is of much greater concern than global warming.

I can't believe it's 20 years already after Chernobyl. People far away easily forget, but the poor people living in those places. Man, they got a fucked up deal...

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

Yeah and hopefully it will affect you in Dublin. :XXbirdman
