Like Murph said, no, unless you click on them.
Amie or I delete them when we see them.

I clicked on one once. The spastic tic I got from it hasn't stopped yet.

Take your max dosage of Valium, clonodine and baclophen four times a day. That's what reduces my spasms.


The only reasonable argument for owning a gun is to protect yourself from the police.
