  1. Hmmm, you know I would gladly go back to rotary dialing phones, smoking in elevators, and black and white tv if I could. I haven’t booted my computer in seven years, and worked in IT for two decades. It’s a satanic reality designed to draw people away from God. Full of perverted heathen shitdicks too.
