God, religion, faith Of The Worlds God created this world. Man, however, Turned out to be doubtful, ruminative… He must not have liked much of what he saw there… And soon he went on inventing the other world.

The skinny should only make love while dressed, and never with the lights on. Those who have never wished to die with their beloved have never loved at all, nor know what it is to love. Every normal person is randy when they’...
