#2 The Soviet Union ( remember them?) had a novel and interesting idea about what Human nature really is. Then they fell in, collapsed and disintegrated. Now Detroit is pursuing an economic model which which is equally wise and misinformed concerning Human nature. You reap what you sow. ( what IS that smell?)
Does anyone feel sorry for Detroit ?
Now the State of California ( hey, Dude. Power to the People, dude. Occupy Wallstreet, dude.) smells like they are next. You voted for him. I didn 't. Maybe you can get a free iPhone and a bigger helping of Foodstamps.
See you in Church, muthah.

#6 Atlantis would sink the Immigrant ships with crystal-power I think before letting them in. They were a racist bunch of people according to Plato.

#7 Well they will just have to sell the city to OCP so they can begin construction on Delta City.
