Venus looks a lot like Earth. Venus looks a lot like Earth. There are mountains, valleys and even active volcanoes - except there's no ocean. One thing to keep in mind when watching a sunset on Venus is that Venus spins backwards so the sun rises in the west and sets in east, which is the opposite of Earth.

i have changed my views on things like this, i think 99% of people that hunt and the people that complain about the hunting are complete hypocrites though.  if you think that its justified to kill an animal in a given context, you must have a difference between a human and the animal that if true of the human would justify killing the animal, otherwise you say X justifies killing something but doesnt justify killing something ate the same time, which of course is a contradiction. hopefully people can understand that.

I am mad the these dumb people have voted for a man that doesn't even know how to run things. Ya he made a company. And he is rich. He called people horrible things. He should be impeached. Hillary Clinton would be a much better president. Thank You For Your Time. If you don't like what you are seeing then please comment on my profile and i would gladly put you in your place.
