It is so sad, no matter what country people are from. We were having a discussion about the Scottish Wars of Independence at work and someone was saying isn't it amazing how much we (human race) have advanced since then. You see something like that and realise we've just discovered easier ways to kill people. I know there are many beautiful, wonderful things in the world, sorry if I make tht sound terribly morbid.
There are many intelligent species in the universe. They are all owned by cats!
