Americans Have Never Been Wealthier & No One is Happy

"Please, don't worry so much. Because in the end, none of us have very long on this Earth. Life is fleeting. And if you're ever distressed, cast your eyes to the summer sky when the stars are strung across the velvety night. And when a shooting star streaks through the blackness, turning night into day... make a wish and think of me. Make your life spectacular.”
 - Robin Williams (as Jack in the movie 'Jack')

The most influential of witch-hunting manuals, Malleus maleficarum (1486), usually translated into English as Hammer of Witches, focused attention on the genitals as “the bodily site most vulnerable to demonic influence.” A supernumerary teat—through which familiars or the Devil himself were supposed to suck blood— was thus often found near or adjacent to the “fundament” or “privy place.” (Warts, pimples, skin tags, tumors, old scars, blemishes; almost anything could be interpreted as a mark of witchery.)
