  • William Gibson wasn’t so far off after all with his Idoru.

    Nermal says:
  • Makes perfect sense to me. Doing something that means almost nothing with something that IS almost nothing. Like religion and wizards in movies, marriage has finally found it’s home within the realm of the ridiculous. I gotta find me a wife1.0 that sparkles like Nene.

  • Conversation has to get dry at some point. So does nintendo get half the guys assets when they divorce? And where does the ring go?

  • This is really an insane idea! Actually, I’ve been also attached on my BloodElf on WoW and been grinding [url=]wow gold[/url] almost everyday just to see her. But, it never came to my mind on marrying her like that guy.

    carl says:
  • Ahuevo potras, por tu nombre sé que eres mexicano. tú sabes que estamos peor. ¿y qué?

    because of you nickname, Ahuevo potras, i guess that you are mexican. me too. let me tell you (and you know it) we are SICKER. and it’s 0k.
