There was a study done on sheep. If you take a herd of one hundred sheep and corral them to a point where they all must jump over a stick to continue, all the sheep will jump the stick. Do the same thing again, only remove the stick for them to jump after the third or fourth sheep has passed. Even with no stick there, the remaining ninety-seven sheep continue to jump as if the stick were still there. They simply do the same as the sheep before them. True story. Sound familiar?

Humanity is just so disappointing. I'm shocked, daily, by how stupid and thoughtless people are. I question regularly how people justify regulating the world the death. Why do some people think they need to protect adults from themselves? I am able to make my own choices. I am able to decide what is right for me. I do not need a parental official telling me to wear my seat belt, don't smoke, raise your children like this, act this way or we'll punish you. Why do so many people want everyone to be the same? I just don't get it. Why are so many people so scared to be different? Scared to stand up for self-expression? Scared to question the status quo? It's sad. It's pathetic. It's scary.
