  1. Thank you. I have already been trying to find something similar to this specific.. Click Home Excellent info I will be backside for more info regarding the soda and pop diet.

  2. dude, I know susie bell, I grew up with her. she used to babysit my sister. I can testify and tell you that she has full blown mental issues. I went to Las Vegas in 2012 and was staying at a Flamingo Bay villa and susie came over to visit me. we sat on the couch, I had a couple of beers and we were flirting, I was touching her arm and she got a phone call from one of her kids and had to split all of a sudden. So that was weird, because she told me she had a huge crush on me and wanted to play out the babysitter fantasy with me. then THAT happened, and I just kind of blew her off and didn’t think anything of it and just thought, “whoa, that was a trip”. But then I talked to her later and I asked her why she came over looking all hot and sexy and the split so quickly. I kid you not, she said to me that she thought I was going to rape her so she had to get out of there. I was like WTF??? Me, rape? What???? I’ve never abused a woman in my life, never cheated on a woman, never taken advantage of a woman. I’m the perfect gentleman so for HER to accuse ME of potentially raping her…That’s pretty much a mental issue that needs to be dealt with through deep sessions of therapy and self introspection and she should not be allowed to victimize men anymore. She was raised a prim and proper mormon girl who never drank or did anything wrong and lived a double life while she was married, hiding her celebrity status as a body builder from her family, lying to them about what she was doing…she confessed all of this to me just before she divorced her husband. The plot thickens. Man, I always thought something was wrong with her brain and now I get it. Poor woman is a narcissistic sociopath.
