This sounds sick. Maybe the terrorists might consider this extravagance in the midst of poverty a crime to God and bring it down. You never can tell nowadays.
Yeah yeah

India guilty 0f 1 of the 5 Pandemics in Human History

The first outbreak of cholera reared its nasty head in 1817 in Calcutta, after the great Kumbh festival at Hardwar in the Upper Ganges of India. The festival attracted thousands of people from all over the country. Pilgrims from the Lower Bengal brought the bacterium to the party, and as they relieved themselves in the Ganges River, which was shared by everybody during the three month festival, they started a pandemic which would spread to the four corners of the earth. Travellers were literally bringing boatloads of the disease from port to port as they sailed the oceans from country to country. During the 19th century alone Asia, Europe, Africa, and North America all reported death tolls from the hundreds of thousands, to the millions as a result of cholera. India got hit the hardest however, with estimated deaths of nearly 40 million people.

I think there is poverty in every country around the world. There are also rich people in the world. Nearly half of the world population is poor.
