I remember being 12, it’s okay, your body is changing and you don’t understand it, with all of these new feelings and all but you’ll grow out of it.
The Bushmans Kloof rock art site in the Cederberg region of South Africa.
Recently awarded the status of a South African National Heritage Site, Bushmans Kloof contains over 130 rock art sites, some of which date to 10,000 years before present.
Stained with oxide pigments, these rocks depict the spiritual and cultural legacy of the San (also known as Bushmen), who have lived in these mountains for some 120,000 years. A particular point of interest about this rock art for some is the depictions of about 30 Cape mountain zebra, which are today endangered, with only about 1,200 remaining worldwide. Antelopes such as the eland, black wildebeest, and springbok are also depicted.

Imagine, if something like gun control was applied to computers because a politician decided you don’t need to own a computer more powerful than what they defined as good enough for you, and the media was spreading fear about criminals having easy and unrestricted access to machines they could use to ruin peoples lives with over the internet. Now if you add angry mothers who fear that their children might get hacked or scammed online and thus computers should be restricted for everyone, you get something very similar to gun control.
Because only hackers and criminals need something more powerful than this, right?
Technically, you could say that is Florida, since Computers were actually banned here.
Wait what, tell me more
You do know the one with the beautifully colored plumage is the male peacock and it only presents itself like that to attract the plain colored female, right?
So basically the only role your fabulousness has is to impress the plain ol’ me. And I may or may not give a fuck.
