Imagine the misfortune of being born a woman in Afghanistan.

Have you ever seen the series The State? ****ing chilling. The amount of things they're not allowed to do. Woman is washing dishes and humming and more experienced, older woman rushes in "No! No singing! Not allowed!" Jesus. Hardline Islam must be the dreariest, least enjoyable religion in the world.

Regular Islam doesn't seem very joyful either, they can't eat pork or pet dogs. Forget about alcohol or drugs of course.

I don't eat pet dogs either, to be fair.

Cop 1: "So, you KNEW she was 14, huh?"
Me: "Um, yeah..."
Cop 1: "And you posed as a 14-year old?"
Me: "No, I didn't. She knew I was 58."
Cop 2: "And you were going to talk to her about MUSIC?"
Me: "Yeah."
Cop 1: "You expect us to believe that?"
Cop 2: "You disgust me."
Cop 3: "Anyone want coffee?"
Cops 1 and 2: "NO! GTFO!"
Cop 1: "Now, where were we?"
Me: "Look, she just asked about music recommendations on this site..."
Cop 2: "Music eh?"
Cop 1: "Bet you thought you'd make sweet music with her eh?"
Me: "No. I just wanted to see her. And then there was this maths thing..."
Cop 2: "Maths?!! My father was shot by a maths teacher!"
Cop 1: "You're going DOWN, scumbag!"

Yeah, just not worth it. Send me a postcard maybe. Much safer.
LMFAO
