  • WHY?
  • NONSENSEJacks life had gone into the depths of the beds.After having counted again and then pretended to beginworking on them, the dwarfs advice Im an old hut made oftwigs and dead leaves.A whole world was stirring to life and the Princess fussedaround and ordered new clothes to be coming from insidethe oven door shut.
  • THOUGHT PROVOKINGBut wealth doesnt always bring happiness.In the meantime, Puss in Boots.He was a lovely girl.The gold pieces were spent to buy a lot more than anymangy donkey or half-ruined mill, the bowl lay empty on alarge spider who promised to help her.You are, your Highness, youll have to work like the others,or youll not get even that.
  • SCARYHope flooded Pinocchios heart as the water rushed into itscavern-like mouth……the second Geppetto carved out the bone Youre stillmuch too thin she complained.Hansel opened the door. Whos there cried Grandma fromher bed Its me, otherwise it wont taste nice.

  • I GOOGLED ITI know it sounds weird but you can put cabbage leaves onyour breasts and it will dry your milk out! I did it and itworks.Cool cabbage compresses will reduce swelling quickly, and ifleft in place for long periods will help diminish milk supply.This method may be used instead of or in addition toremoving small amounts of milk to reduce supply. Use freshgreen leaves, cleaned and chilled, wrapped around thebreasts. Change them about every two hours.
  • AUTHORITY?

  • MEMBER BENEFITSWe never get abducted by aliensWe don’t lose sleep over the Feng Shui in our housesWe save a lot of money by avoiding alternative medicaltreatments like acupuncture, chiropractors, etc.We get to study tons of interesting subjectsOur children have a higher survival rate since we vaccinate
  • DIRTY LITTLE SECRETSWe kill a sacred cow to joinWe’re all mad that second hand smoke doesn’t kill peopleWe can be slow to react to things like man-made globalwarmingWe have to be careful not too see logical fallacieseverywhereWe have to remember to be skeptical, not cynical
  • BIBLE CODE
