    and yet to this day my mother says Beirut back in the days looks way better than it does now. I say it’s gorgeous eitherway.

    I spent the last hour looking at photos from the war, the weapons, the uniforms, the sounds, and recalling the nasty sinister feelings I had then as a kid. Thanks a lot!

    You look at those photos and think how pointless those mutually-destructive conflicts were. It was truly a series of primitive duels to show who had the bigger “gun”. *** fyon kellon, they ruined our childhoods.

      These “before” shots could come back again any day now cause people are so stupid. So fuckin stupid.
