Reality Check..

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I stumbled across this site while looking for something else. http://russiaphoto.hypermart.net/index.htm Now you might say so what,since it's photos of Russian Nuke Subs and bases,nuke test sites,protestors,etc. Well it struck me that not so many years ago posessing just one of these photos would be an automatic death sentence..no trial,just a bullet. The western intelligence agencys would have given anything for them. Yet, here they are for all to see and for sale even.

In these days when folks are so discouraged and wondering about the future. When we get upset about the happenings in our daily lives or even threats of violence such as have invaded our cat site,or even the events of 9/11 and it's perpetrators;perhaps we should just consider how close we came. If things had gone just a bit different we could have destroyed the whole planet in just a few hours.

Maybe we should stop and consider..the world IS getting better.

I found this listed in Google's photo site directory.

At the risk of sounding like an "idiot" hahahaha I was called an idiot in the infamous pm I received yesterday from JimmyJ!!! hahahaha! Okay, so I'm an unstable, idiot that's had a few mental breakdowns! hahahaha! Sorry, I find this hilarious, anyway, question, I'm too lazy to read, I'm working on Max's case and waiting for a call!
