    Biggest mistake. This should have struck the parliment and razed it on the ground to be enabled to stop passing the 18th amendement.

    People have the habbit of not thinking about their death. Do they know that one day or other day they will have to face it? These disasters just remind us about the end of life. Be prepared. Death is waiting at our doorsteps.
