"Don't rush it. It'll come when it comes. I found that I really didn't like alcohol all that much. It pretty much all tastes the same: bad. I have enjoyed broadening my horizons by trying different types though. I'll still drink…"
"Proudmormon: Take your mythological sky fairy and get lost. I don't go trolling on your TBM sites, leave me in peace here. Your dumb church has had 30-plus years to fill me full of BS, you're not going to accomplish much more. Stop wasting…"
