How can you tell if you're gonna die? I think I have all of the symptoms.

Thanks

    They say the moment that you’re born is when you start to die...
    The Gear... Carver "Statement" Mono-blocks, TriangleArt Reference SE with Pass Labs Xono Phono Preamp, Walker Precision Motor Drive, ClearAudio Goldfinger Diamond v2 cartridge and Origin Conquerer Mk3c tonearm, Polk Audio "Signature" Reference Series 1.2TL with complete mods, Pass Labs X0.2 three chassis preamp, PS Audio PerfectWave DAC MkII, Pioneer Elite SC-65, Oppo UDP-205 4K Blu-ray player, Sony XBR70x850B 4k, Polk audio AB700/800 "in-wall" surrounds.

    Saying that it's "too hard" to pursue your dreams is no different than admitting to yourself that you are too lazy to achieve them.

    Biologist say that men begin to die at age 27, and women at age 30. These are the average ages when you are losing more cells than your body can replace---and so starts the slow decline.

    Yes, I truly believe it can help many live longer, healthier, happier lives. The problem is getting your GP to prescribe it.

    I am more into natural remedies. Try popsicle sticks and rubber bands. Actually, HGH will do wonders until you start growing a third head.

    No no no......I'm not talking HGH or steroids....I'm talking bio-identical prescription testosterone. Exact same as what the body produces. But...since you mentioned it (natural remedies) Tongkat Ali (Longjack) is the ticket there.

    Back to the OP, do you see a bright light? If it's an oscillating white light, you're in the path of an older train, get off the tracks.

    If you see this guy, well, nice knowing you.

    @gudnoyez touché! however "Dagmar" is a fine assed German **** that I used to date that tried to take my manhood. I am just giving a shout out to her that reminds me that what a great country that I live in and to always be grateful. I didn't have to go all the way to Germany for this kind of abuse, I found it right here at home in Murica! Strange but she made that Schutzstaffel cap look great! Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
