In a scruffy part-time art student approached Tijuana city officials with a simple plan: He wanted to build a humongous naked woman in the middle of the city to mark the Tijuana centennial. Unsurprisingly, they declined the offer. The refusal did little to dissuade artist Armando Garcia. Armando simply relocated the work to his neighborhood, an overlooked ghetto of Tijuana, and began building. Though discouraged by his professors and with little support from his classmates, the art student kept building and in he had completed his vision. Standing more than five stories tall, rising from hovels and a trash dump, stands 18 tons of fully nude woman, her arm upraised with a pinky pointing to the sky. A sly gesture noting location of Tijuana on a map of Mexico.

I guess I was just hoping there was way for it to work. I am 27, LDS, and 5 days away from marrying my own amazing non-Mormon man. YOUR prayers are just as efficacious as a priesthood holders are. A good man is not defined by his religion and a great marriage is not defined by where it takes place. Mormonism is a lot more controlling and has a lot more downsides. I am running errands related to school or the volunteer work I do or just plain running this house I would love to meet up at the gym ladies.
