Bandera :: TX :: USA | updated 2012-07-28 04:20:27 -0700 | your-story

When I was a kid, one expression I heard quite often from my parents was, "The world doesn't revolve around you." It made sense, I suppose. It was all about taming a runaway ego, but the one thing I don't...

Posted by: Michael Rappaport

Bandera :: TX :: USA | updated 2012-07-28 04:22:08 -0700 | your-story

I have a friend on Facebook -- actually my oldest and dearest friend in the world -- who seems obsessed with telling people "truths" they don't want to hear. He's either exposing the "hoax" of global warming, espousing some bizarre...
