Technically, it's already Christmas here before Halloween came and it lasts until New Year. At late December? I'm looking forward to the 13th month bonuses. Also the upcoming perfect climate to walk and cycle around the month. Exuses to get myself "drunk" in chocolate, staying up for days...

[opinion=mine] You have three choices: 1) Make him feel miserable for having any friends (male OR female) other than you.  Accuse him of wanting to have sex with every woman you know.  Call him a liar when he denies it.  Demand his passwords and go into a rage if he deletes his browser history.  Ch...

I suspect the evolution of religion wasn't entirely a matter of foul play. I suspect that foul play is an im...

Then the solution is to avoid websites like YouTube, Twitch, Discord, the Steam community, et cetera.  At least, do not let them do your thinking for you.
