“how does a person waist there lives leaching off other peoples f%&k ups even look at themselves in the mirror. your parents should be embarrassed of you.”
“Get a life, you must be some geek loser who loves star trek… My problem is this man has a family with children and you have pressed to drag this story on when the young lady didn’t want to go with it. Your a low class bottom feeder that gets enjoyment out of ruining other peoples lives, your a disgrace and so is dead spin. Do something good with your life instead of bringing a good man down that helps people less fortunate. And the star trek comment is because you strike me as a guy who probably still lives at home with your mommy and goes to star trek conventions with your nerd herd. Viking nation never forgets….trust me!”
