  51. Mankind Global Media Network

    Here in Oregon we established the Oregon Health Plan in order to take care
    of the kinds of problems detailed in this video. It keeps the dumb people
    from coming here and ruining too many things.

    dead, rotting parts, or so I’ve heard.

    Cooking with dung is still not that uncommon in many parts of the world.
    It’s really not that nasty because it ends up burning relatively cleanly
    with no “poop” smell. The buffalo just ate grass, not all the shit we eat
    so their excrement is a great fuel.

  95. HexManiacMaylein

    they still use maggots in some cases like for burn victims to get rid of
    dead flesh. Also Why did you use a more complex looking German locomotive
    and not a period accurate American standard 4-4-0 locomotive which its
    really easy to find pictures of.

  96. Ben “BluudLust” NoLastNameGiven

    didn’t mention dysentery
