Perhaps it happened in the human hair exhibit.


Never been myself (not had the time, when I've had the time, not had the cash usual story) but I'm guessing that particular exhibit is exactly as fucking grim as it sounds.
As an editor I seam to spend an awful lot of thyme going threw issues and checking that they're no oblivious errars. Its a tough job but someone's got too do it!

There are photos out there of it, but since it's forbidden to take photos of it the ones that do exist aren't very clear, and can't get across the scale of it.

And when it comes to the current political affairs in the UK, who of the people involved do you consider to be intellectually superior individuals?

"Based Groyper, watch out for that obvious joke- oh god, he has airpods on!"
Conserative Morality wrote:"It's not time yet" is a tactic used by reactionaries in every era. "It's not time for democracy, it's not time for capitalism, it's not time for emancipation." Of course it's not time. It's never time, not on its own. You make it time. If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long. If the fields aren't furrowed, plow them. If the iron is not hot, make it so. If society is not ready, change it.
