It is so angering to know how there's some people in the world who would think it's ok to force women (and I'm sure men too) into slavery. So much for slavery being stopped by the 13th amendment. People are not something you can own. Whatever happened to "all are created equal"?

This documentary gives more information on how being big is slowly starting to become more accepted, like it used to be back in the times of monarchies. There's still many stereotypes for obese people, however it's starting to become more known about why and how these people got to the size they are today. They seem to be addicted to eating, either that or like the young girls in Mauritania, they are force-fed for the sake of marriage. In Mauritania, skinny girls are a disgrace to their families. Being big is seen as being "ripe" and "rich", because they can afford to be more glutinous than many.

This documentary on Heroin, I personally think this one in particular gives the most insight on Heroin and how much damage it can do to anybody. It can and will make you loose everything you have. It's sad to see all these people who used to have very successful lives, who are now Heroin addicts, making their money by prostituting or selling drugs on the street. Nearly a quarter of people who try Heroin eventually become addicted.

There's many interesting facts in this article about North Korea that most may not even know about. Such as how North Korea has a Space Program, and how North Korean teachers in the 1990's needed to be able to play an accordion and pass an accordion test before getting a teaching certificate. Also, North Korea is a leading manufacturer of Crystal Meth, however in North Korea, methamphetamine use is illegal.

Ever wondered why the Springfield residents are all yellow? Creator Matt Groening told the BBC: “An animator came up with the Simpsons' yellow and as soon as she showed it to me I said: 'This is the answer!' because when you're flicking through channels with your remote control, and a flash of yellow goes by, you'll know you're watching The Simpsons.”
