All Butterflies Must Die

Have you heard of the Butterfly Effect?

In a nutshell, the butterfly effect is the far off, unpredictable, and possibly dramatic consequences of a seemingly small act.

It is called the butterfly effect because the concept is often illustrated with the saying along the lines of "a butterfly flaps its wings in China and a tornado occurs in Texas."

If you can hurt them, they clearly deserved it.
