New: Washington has become the first U.S. state to legalize a type of human burial called recomposition — sometimes known as body composting. (@KUOW)
Run for office y'all. You don't need to be anything. You don't need to be some kinda special 1 of a kind maverick or whatever. You'll have staff and a legal team to help you out with whatever you're unsure of. We have elected officials in congress RIGHT THE FUCK NOW who think
-babies grow in our stomachs
-carbon monoxide is good for us
-periods happen at will
-A biblical war between Muslims and Jews will bring Jesus Christ back.
-That a Nuclear Winter is no bfd.
