flooding france...

these floods are bloody insane! every few months there's a new one, this time just down the road from us. the kids work 30 mins west and things looked perfectly normal, same as here. but just 15 mins down the road the town of Limoux is drowning. and it's not even the worst. even the hospital in carc...

Re: Sex Doll Brothel

the thing is that kids are using them all day and have learned to react, rather than think. the games have been programmed to be addictive and some literally stay connected all day and all night until they lose their minds. fortnite has been implicated in a couple hundreds divorce cases and this is ...

Re: Paint Remover

Re: finnish sunset

just my personal opinion, not shared by many. i don't much go for frills, but plants are exception. i do have something that looks like a rubber plant, but it's purple, so doesn't look as severe.

Re: Paint Remover

cool! we used locktight for assorted jobs at DH and every so often to glue my fingers to some unsuspecting part. it was ok, if it was my left hand, i would just use an exacto to cut my hand free, but if i'd done the R hand, i'd call peter to perform the surgery. he didn't laugh as loud as the others...

Re: Peak Dating Ages
