How could she know a tree was there without sight and/or hearing?

Poor girl.  She never saw it coming.

Because it makes complete sense to me, and I was aware of it before Fark was a spot in its daddy's drawers.

She could've lived if she hid in the basement.  Just like that dude who surfed pieces of the WTC down and made it out.

Of course, he was a reptilian, but whatever

FTA: The 11 U.S. locations, which also include a park memorializing 9-11 victims in New York City...

Winners were selected based on their commitment to equality, demonstration of the consequences of intolerance or historical significance to civil rights and social justice in the U.S., according to a news release from the center.


New York does not deserve one based on their killing of black people and their hideous "Stop and Frisk" policy. New York is committed to oppression, not equality.

fark New York.

Anne Frank was deaf and blind.
Helen Keller hid from the Nazis
Lizzie Borden is lost somewhere in the So Pacific
Amelia Airhart flubbed the Bunny Lebowski rescue (and was a terrific golfer, like Babe Didrikson)

Cool?

A little known historical fact: Not only did Anne Frank look out on the chestnut tree, but occasionally, she was able to reach outside and pick chestnuts to eat. Chestnuts are known to have a strong laxative effect, which explains her nickname.
 
2013-03-23 09:27:30 PM  
I was actually hoping that Farkers would be sensitive for a change.  This is what Anne Frank looked out on, and people want to carry it on.  I guess I was wrong.  And disappoint.

I think subby's a little confused. It was a poor little deaf and blind Hitler who was hiding in that closet, until Anne Frank taught him how to say "wa-ter", and then he went on to kill Amelia Earhart, King of the Jews.

Pretty stupid.  It's not the genetics that made the tree special, so saplings or otherwise, they're just another tree.  Cut them down and burn them for heat.  I guess when you think about it that way, we're pretty much the Nazis, and the trees Jews.
