I recently got a pen pal from Qatar, a 13 yo muslim.
Take heed of what she says when asked if she read her holy book (she seems to be unaware of what her religion says regarding how to treat non-muslims or women):
"I read my holy book yesterday though, since its in Arabic I can not understand it. When we read the holy book, its better to read in in the original language. We don't need to understand it to get rewared [sic]. When we just read it, thats also very good."
So, they basically are taught to follow blindly without having a clue what they are following. And they find "rewarding" reading something in a language they don't understand, something their entire society is based on;
"There is no hope. Knowing that humans die untimely, by the millions, simply makes me feel a bit better. If more than, say, 2000 were killed in one go, I could smile. 20000? I might throw a party..."
Yeah, I did that, she doesn't care, too brainwashed; plus "teachers" tell her that it is supposed to be read in the original language. I guess that way there are less insurgents and more brainless suicide bombers. Although I think they have the death penalty for "blasphemers" and other shit in Qatar, so perhaps that's enough motivation.

Lomedin: Learned by chance that Kat Von D is vegan. Didn't have a clue who she was before.

Vegan: I'm on an antinatilist group and only found out about her on that. Had no idea who she was before as never heard of her.

cybernaut: Well, it can be a little hard for me to come here sometimes because of how negative things can get here. I realize there's much to be negative about, but it's still hard for me all the same.
