Re: If We Build It, They'll Probably Still Come

You take some kids who may not have been in the best of health to begin with. You lock them up in a camp without historical precedent. This stresses them out and weakens the immune system. You feed them shitty food that has way more carbs than protein or vitamins. This does nothing to help their imm...

They won't be American Idiots: The Greenland Thread
