    But why small dogs over larger breeds like the golden retriever? Is it the cuteness factor or is it economics (larger dogs eat and poop more)?

    That's funny. I'm glad they didn't fail at the pet fish stage.

    People got used to it. Besides, death used to be a more trivial event, thus less traumatizing. Not to mention that nearly everyone used to see death as a way to Heaven.

    But you have not yet heard that higher education in Germany is not only cost-free (in some places) or cheap (in all others), but that the state actually gives you money to attend university, and that other countries do it the same way.

    I could accept this: "It's arguably the worst time in most recent Brazilian history to have children."
