    I couldn't make this shit up.

    Am I the only one who finds the lyrics to La Adelita creepy?

    Y si Adelita se fuera con otro
    la seguiría por tierra y por mar
    si por mar en un buque de guerra
    si por tierra en un tren militar.

    If Adelita would leave with another man
    I'd follow her by land and sea
    if by sea in a war ship
    if by land in a military train.

    Try being in a room or on a flight full of Italian people. The noise level! And that's not being racist, that's just a fact. Also when I went to uni the people you could normally immediately hear entering the computer room and who would dominate the space were either groups of Italians or groups of black Londoners.

    I'm prejudiced against some protestants, most rich people and all athiests. So no ones perfect.
