just breathing in a big city Does increase your risk of lung cancer. Or eating bar-b -Q food has carcinogens(PAH & PAN).
There were probably studying workers in a factory.
Shit I bet cleaning new routes is bad for me too all that dust from moss/lichen and rock dust from drilling bolts. Oh no its payback for putting up those darn sport routes.

Thanks for having that pop up on my work computer...Maybe you should think a bit more before you post stuff like that.

You think only adults look at this website as well?

Yeah it's funny, and it only works with a suprise element, but it's still not appropriate.

Sorry to be the fuddy-duddy, but if I had kids and they saw that I'd be really pissed.

Most people have the sense to label "work appropriate" etc. Sorry that I don't like "Bear Loving" popping up at my job.

Yeah I know...I'm a Fuddy-duddy...

Minimal Coffee + Man-Loving = Fuddy-Duddy...

Even saying Fuddy-duddy is Fuddy-Duddy!


But who examines every URL for every page that is posted on here or MP.com? Maybe I should start eh?

I know, I knowBlush During the rick-rolling phase a while back, I got really cautious, but have apparently started slacking off recently...
