We sell this at my work. They made the mucus-child look sort of cute, which makes it a little disturbing since the reason you take the medicine in the first place is to get rid of him!

I am sorry for that. But I seriously didn't think the word in there was considered profane. I guess I was wrong.

These words, however, will be permitted ONLY on the Private Forum; their use on the Public Forum is still forbidden. Other words such as "damn" and "hell", when used as expletives, will be permitted on all Public and Private boards as long as they're not used as part of a blasphemy.

Christmas in Homs, Syria. 

Such a powerful picture.

Quote from: Seekingtrue
Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy

It's the vision/design for the remodel and expansion of the Westmoreland Museum of American Art, which is supposed to be finished by next Spring. Here's what it looked like before:



The design isn't really my cup of tea (especially the part on the right), but then I suppose modern architecture in general isn't either.
