Can you believe that a person could live in one country and work in another? And travel back and forth every week – or even every day? There must be something altogether wrong if your work demands 2,000km of daily traveling – or commuting. That can’t be right, or could it? Believe it or not, as Ripley found out, many bizarre things do take place on our planet. And as photographer Tony Vaccaro said, the idiocy of mankind is evident in wars, though we notice such idiocy in other fields as well – the tobacco industry and its victims, for example. Fortunately, a part of our warlike instincts has been sublimated in sporting competitions – and it’s from the Olympics’ closing ceremonies that our “cover girl” arises to a question-and-answer session. So why not pacify your inner warrior right at home, as the husband and wife in our book chapter decided to just do it? What would you think of 100 consecutive days of sexual love with the person in your life? Not much left for war, don’t you think? Happy reading!
