That was super nice of them.
And now I’m mad that nobody told us we were given cows. Cause that’s really f*cking nice and nobody mentioned it at all.

American media tends to disregard that anyone donates to the US. And then Amurricans complain about money going abroad because “nobody helped the US in our disasters.”

Also, do you know how much a cow costs? O.O

It isn’t just a matter of how much a cow costs, its a matter of considering that Masai life is based around their cattle. Its their wealth, their food, and a significant part of their religion. Here’s a quote from Wikipedia:
“Traditional Maasai lifestyle centres around their cattle which constitute their primary source of food. The measure of a man’s wealth is in terms of cattle and children. A herd of 50 cattle is respectable, and the more children the better. A man who has plenty of one but not the other is considered to be poor.[37] A Maasai religious belief relates that God gave them all the cattle on earth, leading to the belief that rustling cattle from other tribes is a matter of taking back what is rightfully theirs, a practice that has become much less common.[38]”
So its not just “they gave us 14 cows”, its that they gave us something that is very important and significant to them, it is more than just a kind gesture that definitely deserves to be known and its a genuine shame that more people don’t know about it.

STRATEGIE & TECHNIK: Neu im Katalog: G38 alias HK416A5
Oberndorf/Koblenz (ww) Das Sturmgewehr HK416A5 aus dem Hause Heckler&Koch läuft nun auch unter der deutschen beschaffungsbehördlichen Bezeichnung G38. Die Bundeswehr-Katalogisierer nahmen jüngst die Version mit 11“-Rohr (279 mm) unter dem Kurznamen G38C in ihre Übersichten auf. Hintergrund: Eine Bundesbehörde hat diese Version der Waffe bereits beschafft. Das G38 gehört zu jener Anfang dieses Jahrtausends entwickelten Oberndorfer 416/417-Waffenfamilie, die das international weit verbreitete AR-Design mit dem äußerst zuverlässigen Kurzhub-Gaskolbensystem des G36 verknüpft. Weitere geplante Varianten seitens HK sind ein G38K mit 14,5“-Rohr (386 mm) sowie ein G38 mit 16.5“-Rohr (420 mm). Zwei weitere Familienmitglieder tragen ebenfalls analoge Kurzbezeichnungen. So heisst die größerkalibrige Schwester HK417 im Katalog der Bundeswehr “G27”. Die halbautomatische Scharfschützengewehrvariante MR308 läuft unter “G28”. G27 und G28 finden bereits in der Bundeswehr Verwendung. Zudem befand sich eine Präzisionsgewehrversion des HK416 im Rennen um die inzwischen abgebrochene Ausschreibung einer “G26” genannten “Unterstützungswaffe kurze Reichweite für KSK/Feldjäger”.
International dient das HK416 unter anderem als Standardgewehr der norwegischen Streitkräfte und als Infantry Automatic Rifle IAR M27 beim U.S. Marine Corps. Darüber hinaus ist es weltweit in unterschiedlichsten Varianten bei militärischen Spezialkräften und bei Polizeibehörden im Einsatz.
Mehr zum G38 und was sich derzeit noch so alles im Bereich der Handwaffen bei der Bundeswehr tut, steht in der überarbeiteten und erweiterten Neuauflage meines Buches Handwaffen und Panzerabwehrhandwaffen der Bundeswehr – Geschichte, Taktik, Technik. Es erscheint nach derzeitiger Planung im Oktober dieses Jahres im Verlag E. S. Mittler&Sohn.

YOUR BODY IS BEAUTIFUL IF:

  • you have a body
  • that’s it
  • you’re beautiful
  • you win
  • congratulations 

You have potentially offended hundreds if not thousands of ghosts.

Sonata Arctica - The Power of One

“My father’s land, my mother’s tongue
Misleading me so shamelessly
For many years I misbelieved
The hatred is the path for me..”

Father I have killed many angels,
I think
I will now walk to the sea.
I hope I will someday forgive me
Please moor
my empty boat on a pier

I can blame for the blue blood that runs in my veins.
But I seem to forget that we are all the same.

In your own blaze of hate you’ve spawned the fear in many lives
You’ve taken action, thinking it was all said on the signs.
You cannot heal the feeling burning deep inside your spine
You now collapse, cave-in, revealing scabby marks of life

Mother, I’ve seen too much, I hate to live my life.
Forgot every word you told me, stubborn little child, (angel of your life)
I have to find my Eden now, the gates I left behind.
But the pain will remain.
No power to gain.

Now I have time to dwell on, self awareness, dreadful crime.
I saw the colors too bright, not knowing that I was blind.
I slayed a man who took a chance and drank the forbidden wine.
The map I draw reveals that I have been complete, machine, in team.

Father I’ve seen too much, I hate to live my life.
Forgot every word you told me. Stubborn little child, (angel of your life)
I have to find my Eden now, the gates I left behind.
The pain will remain.
No power to gain. No!

Mother where’s your son.
When has this begun?
Who has been the fool?

No one was born to be a servant or a slave.
Who can tell me the color of the rain?
In the world that we live in, the things said and done
They can well overrun
The power of one!

(solo guitar)

No one was born to be a servant or a slave.
Can you tell me the color of the rain?
In the world that we live in, the things said and done
They can well overrun
The power of one.

To live and let die
To give hope and take life
Is that what you’re here for?

To think that you are right
To make sure it won’t fly
Is the making of a hate crime

In the lands of the brave,
In the homes of the land slaves,
We are all the same

I need to believe.
There’s more than the eye can see
All colors of rainbow.

No one was born to be a slave
Seek the past and place the blame
Tell me the color of the rain
No one was born to be a master

In the land we live, we die
praise the oneness, praise the lie
To bind a web around the faker
We will need a true
Rainmaker

No one was born to be a slave
Seek the past and place the blame
Tell me the color of the rain
No one was born to be a master

"Children of Abel, Children of Cain
Can live in harmony, without shame
The keys that I grant thee, The Sacred Land
Are dry desert sand on the palm of your hand
Without the water, the wisdom of past
Will run through your fingers, forgotten so fast
Thus now when I leave you, I’m truly blind
This blindness, this blessing, the hope of mankind…”

Can anyone confirm these?

Is this true? I see that articles, but does this happen normally or is this just angry people who are the exception?
