Nor do I like being in a relationship for a period of time and then all of a sudden my convictions are a problem-later baby!
Some of my best friends have prior convictions, and several have done jail time.

ROFL-thats funny, I forgot about THOSE convictions :police:

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Hello, Montalo, and welcome to the Forum.

 :)

This thread is more for being, well, very random.  It's OK to start a thread that is an introduction of yourself.  Lots of people have done that.  And that way you won't get ummm side swiped by something really bizarre

For some reason, I am unable to see the video portion on youtube, so I must depend entirely on the audio message of the PSAs, without visual assistance, to further instruct me.  Hopefully this will suffice.

Fixed.  I can see them now, in their full wisdom.

Dmitry Medvedev sent his condolences to Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan following the earthquake and tsunami that hit the country.
The President's message reads, in part:
“I was deeply saddened to learn of the natural disaster that struck Japan, the powerful earthquake and tsunami that have claimed lives and caused widespread destruction.
Please pass on my sincere condolences to the victims’ families, and my words of support to all who were affected.
Russia is ready to provide any necessary assistance to Japan in the disaster relief effort.”
