Thought for the day

"We're so self-important. So arrogant. Everybody's going to save something now. Save the trees, save the bees, save the whales, save the snails. And the supreme arrogance? Save the planet! Are these people kidding? Save the planet? We don't even know how to take care of ourselves; we haven't learned how to care for one another. We're gonna save the fuckin' planet? . . . And, by the way, there's nothing wrong with the planet in the first place. The planet is fine. The people are fucked! Compared with the people, the planet is doin' great. It's been here over four billion years . . . The planet isn't goin' anywhere, folks. We are! We're goin' away. Pack your shit, we're goin' away. And we won't leave much of a trace. Thank God for that. Nothing left. Maybe a little Styrofoam. The planet will be here, and we'll be gone. Another failed mutation; another closed-end biological mistake." -- George Carlin

Valentine's Day is, for most people, a day to celebrate loved ones in their lives. But where did Valentine's Day begin and how did we come to celebrate a special day in honor of our loved ones? And who is Saint Valentine anyway?

 

Just like at Christmas, people exchange cards and gifts in celebration of this day but in some places around the world, they do not. India is a place where there are people who do not do others. According to some "Indians", it is not part of their culture.
