  • I am not surprised, dont care about themselves dont care about the environment. just care about getting their head tight. Lets just give them free drugs. why not.

  • That’s a pretty good action photo. Were there mutants in the camp, or was it empty of life?

  • They let lightning fires burn because they’re natural and healthy for the land. Should have let this one burn to, I’m sure the surrounding land would have benefited from it.
