David Colon 2/17/11 these sneakers symbolize the hatred towards a man that is not found in the world till this day. So not for nothing, but i think the person who made these should of thought twice. But none the less they're kind of nice.



We should put glass in these and make him wear them, (if he's still alive) -Elana.. O2.17.2O11

    http://asiabizz.com/6311/aero-india-show-2011-flying-car-becomes-reality-concept-revealed-at-the-event/

    This article is about how an Indian car inventor made a flying car. He presented it in the Aero India 2011 show. The inventor, A.K. Vishwanath has been working on the project for 16 years. The car model is merely an old Mauriti 800 hatchback. Vishwanath has modified the car to the extent where it can fly. He himself has not flown the vehicle yet, because of the many safety issues. It was claimed to be tested in a windfunnel, but not known if it was neccessarily true.

    http://www.legalserviceindia.com/article/l348-Victory-for-Gay-Rights-in-India.html
    This article is about a recent law that was made saying that homosexuality is legal and allowed in India. Before gay marraige was looked down upon and not allowed. Many disagreed and fought against the system...and won. I kinda thought this article was interesting because it seems that people think that gay marraige is just in America, but it is actually everywhere.

    Do gay couples who are married have to wear a mangalasutra also?
