Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm Sigurður:

Religion and superstition are powerful "magnets" when the masses believe. The collected beauty through the time is so immense. Freedom of religion is important so is my uttering of these sentences. The focus of beliefs is incredible. But what the hell do I know I'm a registered Ásatrú believer.

I just looked it up, how have I gone this long without seeing Gus?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm Therese:

I originally mistook him for Rodney Dangerfield in Ladybugs. It's the red uniform and the facial expression...
