  • BJP means "Bomby jak piča" which simply translates to "Bombs as fuck". Literal translation would be "Bombs as pussy". "Piča" means pussy in czech language but that would not make sense in english translation :)

    • @Yarp Yarp du, das satans zeichen ist grad voll in! bei uns und mittlerweile weltweit, machts jeder " dumme schüler " bereits, als " cooles grußzeichen " und jedes mal, wenn dieses zeichen gemacht wird, entsteht eine " gewisse energie " dabei und das ist nicht gerade ein kleiner anteil, weltweit... der trick bei dem ganzen, ist, dass der satanismus alles umdreht, wie einen freundlichen gruß, zu bösartiger symbolik-magie. und zeichen, sowie symboliken, haben eine ganz gewaltige kraft, mitunter und das sag ich jetzt nicht , weil ich irgendso ein abgehobener spinner bin, sondern das gehört zur allgemeinbildung, gerade für einen deutschen. übrigens, halten diese energie, ein paar " meister-seelen ", jeden augenblick, aller ausstrahlenden menschen, weltweit, im gleichgewicht, sonst würden wir alle längst, im chaos versinken... denn sie wissen alle nicht, was sie tun... einen relaxten abend noch!
