    May Day! Seattle is going insane

    Is this only here? Or is it going on in other cities? Seems to me that there really is no real reason for this violence, banners have numerous different slogans on them. Its more like they just want to be violent, pick what ever excuse you want to be violent. I thought May Day was a day...

    Can someone explain why this works?

    This sounds very hokey (in a metaphysical way), and I am sorry for that. It isn't, it is a very serious question.... A number of years ago a friend gave me a "healing wand." It is nothing more than hard copper (water) pipe(maybe a foot long?), and a natural quartz crystal "point". But...
