Ying: No one really appreciates prophets of doom: they're wet blankets.
Frida: Often the problem is not the message itself, but its delivery. It is amazing how inept at communication so many people are.

As our civilization edges toward destruction
isn't more than a satire due?

and prevent future nuclear barbecues?

In the future lone rangers won't succeed.

We must learn to work together
and grow spiritually.

Yeah, right.

By the way, which net site
has the best photos of Felicity Feng
