Hm, it's pretty tiny on my screen.  It looks like a guy wacking (really
fast) in front of a computer.  Is that it?

Yes, the argument about property values is particularly hilarious.
"Neighbors that have increased crime and decreased property values because
of the proliferation of pornography in their communities."  Yes, I like
to go out and smash my neighbors windows after a good spank session.
Ooooh yeah.

Wow, thehun.net seems like a cool site.  Thanks Republicans for the
referral!  If I were a dot-com sex star, I would certainly not think of
myself as a victim of anything, aside from the fact that I might have
gotten myself into some nasty VDs.

Well now that I've been laid off from WireX I'll have to celebrate
the month similar to the way my friend and I celebrated Vera Katz',
the mayor of Portland, "meat-free day"--with a nice juicy rare steak.

Sounds like a good time for flashing!  I hope to see some nice pics on
ilovebacon.com/flashing RSN.

Aren't these the same people that decided that since evolution was only a
"theory" (like gravity) that it was unnecessary to teach it in school?
Hmm...  Yup, Americans really are stupid.  Anyone know of a nice European
country where citizenship is easier to get than Switzerland or Germany?
