and you think you have it tough

In 1555 Ivan the terrible commissioned an architect to design saint basil’s cathedral in Moscow (the one in all the pictures that looks like Walt Disney’s bad acid trip). When the job was done and Ivan saw the finished product, he was amazed by its beauty. As a reward for doing such a great job, Ivan had the architect’s hands chopped off, his eyes gouged out and his tongue cut out, so he could never again design anything that would surpass the cathedral’s beauty. The moral of this story? No good deed goes unpunished. Think about it for a sec, you have just been asked by god’s personal representative on earth to build god a house. Add in that god’s personal representative just happens to be one of the most ruthless and feared leaders of the time (he killed his own son and heir by clubbing him on the head with a staff). So is this really a blessing? If you fail you’ll defiantly get killed in probably a very horrible way, and you see what success gets you. If you’re thinking life’s unfair, “why do bad things happen to good people”, at least you can still bitch about it. It’s kinda hard to complain when you don’t have a tongue.
