Either the immediate internal air pressure increase would have caused severe injuries to the occupants. Or the atmosphere inside would have been pressurized to incandescence and burned the occupants to death. See more »

30 days with a 5 o'clock shadow
5 October 2017 | by mcpuffin-27569See all my reviews

How is it that Paris had a 5 o'clock shadow for 30 days straight, not shaving. How can anyone make such an unimaginably moronic mistake as that? I mean seriously! He grew a 5 o'clock shadow (stubble) within the first day and it never grew anymore for the next 29 days. That is honestly the worst writing I've ever seen.
