Rule #866

We live in primitive times, where war comes easy, where most people can't think for themselves, and few have the balls to try to change things.

Rule #865

We ALL get bored sooner or later, it's what you do next that tests your character, and creativity.

(Is there actually a rule against bringing your lamb to school?)
