Here we go

 

When I have to buy something I often surf the Internet and look for product reviews so I can choose the best product to suit my needs. Sometimes I just look for it without reading people’s opinions, in those cases I try to find the product or service. In the case of Free English Classes or Free Online English Lessons you came here, just like I land on so many product pages. I bet you have been to several sites and found interesting stuff to read and do, or just bounced off until you found something that caught your eye.

The last thing that caught my eye was an article about some unusual things advertised on a recognized portal

What if we try to look for it together in the following image?

“She then tries to get pregnant for real, to keep him (his money) trapped, and if she can’t get pregnant in time, oops, I had a miscarriage, give me sympathy, oh, and money.

This proves a lot, first is obviously that women cannot be trusted, but also that women just do not give a fuck about a man’s feelings, she would crush his feelings without batting an eyelid, so long as she was getting what SHE wanted.

Well spotted, mate, good video.”

“You raise a very valid point. There’s no difference between selling positive pregnancy tests to lying women and selling guns, drugs, and prostitutes to the members of your community. Cigarettes and alcohol are totally legal businesses. The manufacturers are not concerned about your welfare or the consequences of your consumption of their products. It is up to every individual to do the “right” thing. It is unfortunate that many people don’t even know what that is.”
