Re: "The Sun" Discussion

It's definitely about that tag line "Never Fall Back." It's great lines like those that make you wonder why you haven't seen it already. It's new to me!

It's a similar joke, to be sure, but not really the same joke. But let's face it. It's ALL been done before. We all try to be as original as we can, but sometimes, you just gotta tell your joke.

Re: "Suggestions" Discussion

Yeah, I hear that. Some people I see on there I have no interest in getting in touch with again.

But I still consider them my friends. :)

But others you would like to get in touch with, but you know you shouldn't.

I consider them my enemies.
