Lamp from a tree stump

Materials: JANUARI in silver, tree stump, electric drill, light bulb, lampshade

Description: I had this old inexpensive lamp fixture from IKEA.
I don’t really know how long I had it around, now it has an another name, JANUARI.

Then in my backyard I found the perfect tree stump. I sanded it a little bit to get the rough parts nice and smooth and gave it a coat of clear paint.

Then drilled a hole through the whole stump and added the light fixture to it.

Add a bulb and your lamp is ready.

    Why American men should boycott American women


    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.
