Where's your GF Mina?

hey Aposphet,

who's that chick on your avatar?  Just wondering..
Whosoever will be saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold the catholic faith; Which faith except every one do keep whole and undefiled, without doubt he shall perish everlastingly. And the catholic faith is this: That we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity

My wife and I just after our Orthodox wedding ceremony, next to the Bronze Horseman, where all Piterskie couples must be photo'd ASAP.
you look like your avatar, just younger.
I can only hope.

set second the motion, btw, that no one here, with the exception of Gebre Menfes Kidus, because his avatar has often been his photo, looks anything like I imagined.

ISA, I really just assumed that you looked like St. John of Damascus.

You feel totally let down. Imagine how I feel!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.

Theoretically yes, each state can set it's own drinking age. In practice 21 is pretty universal. Some states allow 18 yrs to buy beer I believe.

Depends on which state you are in. Also allowed is consuming wine for religious purposes.

IIRC the 21 age was required at about 1984.
