One prefers that to I or me as it is more detached and one likes to be logical

Being emotional tends to cloud ones judgement when one is here so one avoids it

This is because California males are liberal pussies. We Southerners talk like real men.

I heard a commercial on the radio against drunk driving and there was a young woman using uptalk and vocal fry to teach us that buzzed driving is still drunk driving. :lol:
Too bad I forgot the entity who sponsored the commercial, sorry.

:lol:
Я пью за разоренный дом,
За злую жизнь мою,
За одиночество вдвоем,
И за тебя я пью, -
За ложь меня предавших губ,
За мертвый холод глаз,
За то, что мир жесток и груб,
За то, что Бог не спас.
