Believe it or not...
Newsflash from 2001! People actually believed this bullshit.
I bet there are a lot of people out there thinking I just pulled this picture out of my ass. Maybe I shopped this up after downing a bottle of vodka because I realized a sudden need to regain all those lost taxpayer dollars the US Government air dropped over the 'Graveyard of Empires'.
Well no. That shit already happened.
Something you slowly realize as you get older is that people your own age eventually start running how the world works. Knowledge evolves slowly but arrives suddenly in a hammer smash before you are really ready to hear it. It suddenly becomes hard to reconcile the fact that the guy who you remember shitting his pants in your classroom when you were five is now the minister of whatever in some government job. Such is the nature of time and your own failure to be that guy. You suffer from the curse of being intelligent.
