    WW I soldiers bike

    tumblr_l07guqzG1e1qzpzfmo1_500[1].jpg

    I found this picture of a bike that was chained to a tree by a young soldier going to fight in World War 1. He never returned.

    I like to think the boy got eaten by a bear.
    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.

    It doesn't matter how it got there. It's still a cool photo of a bike embedded within a tree.
