dating myth #25

If I hear one more song about loving someone “forever”, I will consider proving that “forever” can in fact be abruptly ended with a blunt instrument to the head. This awful myth has spread to the general populace and is now bandied about ad nauseam. Forever does not exist.  At best you get a “good…

The interweb

Someone was talking about the net not always being what it seems – sometimes the men are men, and the women are men, and children are often the FBI.
