    I don't know if anyone else feels this way.. but whenever I get a chance to visit a historical monument.. I get this feeling of awe.. like a person so far away in time from me was standing at this exact spot and spent so much of his time in creating this... He too had an entire life like mine... Happiness and sadness... And all and all.. I just get lost for a moment and it just gives me a feeling of awe.. but these morons surely don't care...

    These stories remind me of that episode of "I Love Lucy" where Lucy and Ethel destroy John Wayne's footprints in cement when they try to steal them from Grarmum's Chinese Theater in Hollywood.
    Anyway, it doesn't surprise me that so many artifacts are "ruined by morons." Some people act as though they own the whole world, that they can just do whatever they please with any historical item, no matter how careless and destructive. They simply have no respect or regard for other peoples' cultures and customs. It's like, for example, if someone from a Western country visits an Asian nation like China, but instead of trying to find a place where he can find authentic Chinese food, he asks where the nearest McDonald's restaurant is.
    This is probably why a lot of places all over the world are actually closed to tourists, either permanently or until further notice.

    why wasn't the destuction of the mayan calendar left out? i remember hearing on the news after the date of the end of the world that a bunch of disgruntled morons had destroyed the relic because of it being false. personally, i think the mayans stopped the calendar at said date because they couldn't be fucked continuing it any further. it's only that centuries later, historians had assumed said prediction.

I spent 7 min 26sec only waiting for this specific story to be brought up and now I'll never get back these 8 mins of my life... There should be a button on youtube that says "Report Clickbait".

    How hard is it to teach your kids to look but not touch?! My brothers & I learned by the time each of us was 4 that if it isn't yours you don't touch it unless given permission. My parents succeeded by saying that if we wanted people to respect our stuff, we had first respect their's.

    My ex and i owned a house which had the largest willow i've ever seen (not tallest but most vast.....and spread) It had about 11 trunks coming out. there were two deep bowls where you could sit among the trunks and read a book in piles of among five and one among six....due to how the main trunks spread.... It wasn't touching the wires, but the electric company came through and cut off massive portions of it anyway. I was severely disabled and very weak at the time due to nerve damage, but also prone to adrenal attacks for the same reason....and this.............drove me into a total rage..normally i could barely stand.....or move...i was shaking and yelling and raging....I don;t even know if my words were intelligible or proper english....and was just very grief stricken. It was on my own property, but it didn;t necessarily "look" like someone's property because we'd made it look like a small park separate from our yard....and i made paths and small fire pit areas for socializing, near it......with stone paths...etc etc. I am not certain if i have ever been more angry in my entire life, but part of that would have been due to my severe adrenal disorder at the time...which is what made it so i could actually get out there and rip them a new one. The bastards who cut it were likely very glad they were up in their truck......cuz i likely seemed like a crazy person. But this shit was so raw. It was a very beautiful tree and they cut it very jagged and it was a pretty bad job, and they left the pieces just laying about. and i raged at how disrespectful they were about my property. They didn;t really care but i still scared them a little. The burning tree reminded me of that. I was so upset and i wished something could be done but all they had to say was they were doing their job. Lots of forest and people who cut wood in that area, so there would have been little compassion for this. I felt it was very wrong, and a crime. Nobody else really did, but my ex. it was very upsetting. I had a quite a few seizures over that.
