Of course it is. What’s the point of going to all the trouble to create a Facebook Page if you’re not going to like it? It’s yours. You better like it, otherwise, you’re not playing with a full deck.
Let me ask another question. If a guy is running for President, isn’t he going to vote for himself? My two points are,
Don’t run for President as a Republican and vote for the Democrat.
Don’t go to the trouble of creating a Facebook Fan Page if you’re not going to like the damn thing.

The first thing I did was shake my head, and then shouted, “Girl, are you crazy!” Then, I told her I love her, and that nothing she could do will ever change that. I also reminded her that I’m not just pissed. I’m passed pissed.
Then, I reminded her that she’s going to be in for a rude awakening. When born, the baby will be mine, not hers, and I will adopt it myself. She won’t have custody regardless.
Finally, I’ll hunt down the father, and politely explain to him that for the next 18 years, his paycheck is mine, or he’ll go to jail. At first, I thought about killing him and hiding the body, but I don’t want to go to prison. I have a kid to raise. I’d rather make him wish he were dead, which is exactly what I intend to do. For the next 18 years, I own him. His ass is mine!
Response from Merjeo:
Calm down. There’s a solution to this problem.
Find her a future husband. Find a good man you know, like and trust. Since she’s only 14, you have time on your side. And don’t rule out the father. Sit down with him and have a friendly discussion. He may not be a gad guy. He just screwed up. She may give you a hard time and say something like, “Daddy, you have no right to interfere with my life!“
Your response to this should be, “BULL SHIT! You’ve tried it your way and you’ve messed up. Now, we’ll try it my way!“
Take the father’s paycheck. He is responsible.
The child is what’s most important. This way, the child can grow up in a healthy family environment. Who knows? Your daughter may turn out to be a good mother.
Rolling the Dice – Here are the rules
Every time you roll the dice you get $3 million.
If the dice lands on double sixes, you will go to jail for 30 years, but you still get the $3 million.
Would you play? Is so, how many times would you roll?
Here’s some alternatives
Negotiate! Don’t negotiate money. Negotiate years. Ask for 10 years jail time. If you’re in your twenties or even your thirties, you’ll still be young when you get out, and you are set for the rest of your life. And just think about the interest you will earn while you are in jail. Also, consider that you might get lucky and never land on double sixes. If so, how many times would you roll?
If you can’t get the years down, don’t roll, unless you are over the age of 70. At least you will spend the rest of your life with someone else taking care of you, and your family will be set for life.
If you can’t get the money up and the years down, consider playing, but on one condition. You can use your own dice.
Finally, Don’t play at all, which is my best advice. The House Always Winssssssssssssss!
Be careful who you follow
This does not apply to Twitter or Facebook. Although, following the wrong people on these platforms could get you in trouble, it’s not likely. I’m talking about the real world, brick & mortar, face-to-face, or whatever you want to call it.
Last Friday evening, I watched the TV Special on ABC, Truth and Lies: The Family Manson. This made me think about choosing the right people to follow as role models. Granted, Charles Manson is not exactly a role model, but the people in his crime family thought he was God.
When you follow someone, here’s what can happen
The people who followed Charles Manson ended up with life sentences in prison.
The people who followed Richard Scrushy when he was the CEO of HealthSouth ended up with 5 to 10 year sentences in prison.
The people who followed Jeffrey Skilling, former CEO of the Enron Corporation, ended up with much longer sentences in prison.
Finally, the people who follow Bill Gates, co founder of Microsoft, end up in the top 5 on the Fortune 500 list.
Be careful who you follow.

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, my cousin is 31, I’m 18, and she really likes me a lot.
I want to have sex with her so bad, I can hardly stand it. Yesterday we were kissing. Then I stopped her because I felt it wasn’t the right thing to do. I’ve heard that our children might have Down Syndrome or something like that if I do anything with her. Is this BS or NOT?
I do like her, but I can’t have a family because of that. I won’t put my penis anywhere near her body.
Actually, your kids will grow up with a superior IQ. This also happens when pregnant women are on steroids. There’s only one side effect. The kids are psychotic. And speaking of psychotic, have you checked your marbles lately?
You’re saying you want to raise a family with your cousin. You have to be out of your mind. I think either your parents are cousins, or, your mother was on steroids when she was pregnant with you.
I’m sorry to break it to you Pal, but your cousin is toying with you, laughing and enjoying every minute of it. If you have sex with her, it would be nothing more than a training session. In other words, she’ll give you sex lessons.

I just found out my twin sister has had a crush on my yet to be announced fiancé for the longest time. Our engagement party is next week.
I was wondering if it was okay if I let my twin sleep with him before then. We haven’t asked my fiancé about this yet, but my sister is very excited, I doubt he’d even notice, we both look and sound the same and have very similar names. I’m Kathy and she’s Cat. We were named Katherine & Catherine. Our parents thought it was funny.
So will it work? We won’t get into trouble with the cops though, will we?
Response from Merjeo:
You can ask this question to a cop, but he’ll probably laugh at you. Just to play it safe, you might want to ask your lawyer. My guess is, he’ll also laugh and tell you, “I don’t know.” You’d better be worried about getting in trouble with your fiancé.
I have a suggestion. Level with him. Tell him the truth. Then, if he’s cool with it, you can have a threesome, and play cat and mouse.
While this is not my style, let me add that the best man at my wedding had sex with another woman on the night of his bachelor party, and they have been married 45 years.
Teach a Man How to Fish – Very common when people ask others for help
The idea is simple. The person who is giving someone help and guidance could just give him a fish. The problem is, he will eat the fish, and come back for more.
Don’t just give him a fish. Show him how to get his own fish, and he’ll never mess with you again. Otherwise, you’ll never get rid of him.
Adaptions to the expression, Teach a Man How to Fish
- Teach a man how to hold a gun, and he will rob a bank.
- Teach a man how to run a bank, and he will rob the World.
- Teach a man how to shoot a gun, and he will kill someone.
- Teach a man how to seduce a woman, and he will take your wife.
- Teach a man about sex, and he will screw you royally.
Two situations when you would never use this expression
- Never say this to your adopted son
- Never say this to the woman you married
Two more situations when you can use this expression
- When you’re about to get a divorce
- If you own a business, when you’re about to fire someone
What was wrong with the apes and the monkey?
I’ve always wondered why man evolved from apes. During this time, I’ve asked myself two questions:
- First, why did God create man?
- Second, if man evolved from apes, why are apes still around?
I have the answers to both.
- First, God created man because He was disappointed with the monkey.
- Second, the ape is still around because one day, God may decide to change things back to the way they were.
