  1. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN! http://www.BoycottBitches.com I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women? American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least. This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

  2. I’m an autistic person and one of the things I enjoy doing is writing funny/random crazy stories that make me laugh (maybe they make you laugh too?) My blog is at http://www.AutisticWritings.com Maybe you’d also consider giving a small donation to help me survive? Right now I can only accept donations through Bitcoin and my Bitcoin Wallet ID is 175Gku7YvNySTQJht43Qefvorjj2URLKqP

  3. “What the heck was that guy tripping on?” I asked my friend, walking back to the car. “I really don’t know” James replied. We drove back to my apartment and we both put two hits of acid under our tongues about 15 minutes before arriving. By the time we reached and were walking up the stairs to my second floor apartment it was starting. A lady was walking by and I couldn’t contain myself and starting cackling like a madman. We reached my door, opened it, and went inside quickly. To read more, go to http://www.AutisticWritings.com

Life as an autistic person is kind of difficult to say the least, and it’s especially difficult to survive financially and so that is why I am requesting donations. Please check my blog for ways you can donate. Thank you very much for your kindness!
