i have always found this an interesting topic..


The Black Death was an epidemic of bubonic plague that devastated Europe in the mid-14th century, killing an estimated 60 percent of Europe's entire population. And it spread scarily quickly just over the course of six years — as this stunning GIF demonstrates:

and then there were the dr's..

'Each piece of the suit—the hat, the bird-like mask, the red glass eyes, the black overcoat, the leather breeches, and the wooden cane—is thought to have had an important function to either keep the disease away or scare it away. What doctors didn't know was that they were probably doing more harm than good—spreading the plague even more by exposing more people to their plague-covered articles of clothing.'

Did you know the first known instance of biological warfare occurred when the Mongols were attacking the city of Caffa in Crimea and their soldiers started falling to the plague? They took the corpses and hurled them over the city walls to spread the disease and kill everyone inside. Many merchants fled and escaped on ships sailing west. That incident is also what caused the spread of the Black Death.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

They filled the beaks with flowers and herbs to act as a filter.
Another very interesting tidbit....

On weekends you can turn it upside down and wear it as a kinky strap-on.

I've heard a bit about the "reapers". It's a fascinating story. When I was watching the video I thought about time travel and how they could have been sent back for a reason. Then I thought that if they had been sent back to kill certain people to prevent something how terrible would it have been considering what was allowed to happen? All sorts of things could have been wiped from our history and minds and we would have no idea. What sort of desolate world were they preventing by killing 30-60% of the population?

Not saying that's what happened, of course. It was just the thoughts of an active imagination.

Or was it...
