    … What happened to his nose?

  17. There’s hope in humanity! And nice to see positivity on the new these days.

  18. My phone number got spammed by “CRA” robocalls a couple of times over the last two or so years, sometimes to the tune of a dozen or so calls per day. Something really needs to be done to secure the phone system against rogue call routing so these scammers can more easily be traced or at least blocked..

  19. So it’s true. It’s Everything You Want in s Drugstore.

  20. the senior was mentally compromised. nobody at any age should fall for that.
