5 Reasons Why America and India Are Basically the Same

15 Reasons Why Pope Francis Is One of the Best People in the World

The pope is one of those titles that, in my opinion, make our society dwell in the past instead of moving forwards to the stars. I may get some heat for saying this, but I really think religion as a concept is what’s holding us back. Why am I telling you this? I need you to understand that even though I personally am not a religious person, I can’t help but feel the utmost respect for pope Francis’s worldview, what he did for this world, and his attitude towards people in general. Which basically is what Christianity is all about – don’t be a dick to people and do to others as you’d have them to do to you.

25 Exceptional Dollar Bill Origami Examples

One of the coolest Japanese arts, aside from Kendo, is indisputably Origami. It’s an ancient art of folding paper, and while it may sound meh, once you’ve tried you yourself – you’re hooked! Too bad we can’t see any of the first origami pieces, since the paper isn’t very good at keeping it together for more than a hundred years or so.
