You Passed 8th Grade Math Congratulations, you got 10/10 correct! Could You Pass 8th Grade Math? I also got 100s in the Math Regents for Courses I, II, and III in 9th, 10th, and 11th grades.

Oh, right, that makes perfect sense…

What a topsy-turvy world we live in. “The scriptures are crystal clear that when God sets out to punish a nation, it is with the sword.

The gf got me this shirt for our anniversary from Neighborhoodies, and it just arrived. It’s a pretty good quality shirt, and the letters seem to be really on there. After I wear it a few times and see how it’s working out, I’ll probably use the 5% discount card I got with it and [...]

I generally don’t buy into this crap, since it’s all a blatant ripoff, but the Title Generator is down, and my biggest enemy is interesting, so here it be: Rude Ruby People Iced: Twenty Three Car Bombs Planted: Five Favorite Weapon Piano Wire Arms Broken: Twenty Eight Eyes Gouged: Three Tongues Cut Off: Fourteen Biggest [...]
