No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.

South Africa’s first black president and anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela has died, South Africa’s president says.

Mandela fought against apartheid and white minority rule in South Africa for decades, spent twenty-seven years in prison for his work, and was eventually elected President in 1994. In 1993 he and F.W. de Klerk received the Nobel Peace Prize “for their work for the peaceful termination of the apartheid regime, and for laying the foundations for a new democratic South Africa”.

He's actually curious to see what it's going to look like now...

  1. Dad: What are you doing?
  2. Me: Painting a T-rex white so I can then cover it with pink glitter glue.
  3. Dad: ...
  4. Me: It's a christmas present. Nothing screams masculanity more than a pink glittery t-rex.
