I come back everyday just to see what JG has to say.

Since he's been in Texas, the last few weeks have been very disapointing.

cube_rat: I find your post offensive and poorly researched. You should throw yourself from a cliff at your earliest opportunity.

Dont even respond to this critique as all you will accomplish is to bury yourself and your sad position even further.

;P

(yes, sarcasm!)

Good news! My wife doesnt have to take The Pill anymore. My body has now officially stopped producing both testosterone AND my sperm count is now negative. In fact, my equipment appears to be trying to retract itself...
