We sick sons of bitches, the human species, have signed each and every one of our death warrants.
From the UK Daily Mail:
Pregnant South African women are deliberately drinking large quantities of alcohol to harm their unborn babies in a bid to earn more welfare money, it has been claimed.
Expectant mothers living in the Eastern Cape, one of the poorest areas in South Africa, are bingeing on a ‘moonshine’ type drink which contains battery acid – with some drinking up to five and six bottles a day.
It has been reported they do it to claim a disability benefit from the government – using their disabled children as a source of income.
Video taken by Sky News shows a mother drinking a homemade brew called ‘kah-kah’ while heavily pregnant.
[...]The addictive milky brown brew is made from yeast, water and battery acid.
[...]The World Health Organisation said there has been an increase in the number of babies born with Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) in the area since 2002.
The syndrome is also the most common birth defect in South Africa.
The irreversible symptoms mean children suffer from speech problems, physical deformities, learning difficulties and behavioural issues.
Families receive 250 South African rand ($29 US) per child, per month but a disabled child brings in around 1200 rand a month ($138 US).That's what a human's future is worth to these people. A hundred and nine US dollars a month. That's what living a normal life sans physical deformities, brain damage and psychological problems is worth.
A hundred and nine fucking dollars a month.
Which is why for all its other faults, I will firmly applaud the Singaporean government's stance on welfare: you don't work, you don't eat, and charities shall be largely private (any Singaporeans reading this will know what happens when government gets into charity. NKF case, anyone?) Bad behaviour of filthy human cockroaches is not to be incentivised or even tolerated.
I wonder if those hundred and nine dollars a month will seem so great a sum in the future when those handicapped babies grow into handicapped children and then handicapped teenagers and handicapped adults. I wonder of many of these fools actually have any comprehension of the long run, or even cause and effect beyond "gimmedat!"
But back to the point, at this moment, if a comet dropped on the earth and wiped us all out, I wouldn't fucking care anymore. Just when you think that humanity has bottomed out, it finds ways to sink to new lows.
Where's my box?
