Marriage Sucks…

I’m an old fashion mid-age man. I will not then take into consideration in this post the marriage between homosexuals. In fact, if for some reason I was asked to give an opinion about that modern stuff called “same sex marriage” I would answer “no”. I know, it’s controversial but let me have the freedom […]

There’s a few other good reasons to form a triangle with these three countries but, because I’m convinced that nobody will really care about that, I just present one: there’s many bananas […]

The beliefs of a man are […]
