    Freemasons! Ex-directors of French intelligence! International gangs of elite hitmen!

    A bit mental. I read a book a while ago that said the elite, highly paid, globetrotting assassin is basically a Hollywood invention and most hitmen are grubby scumbags you meet in a pub who'll shoot someone for a tenner, and yet...

    Its almost more of a surprise that it wasn’t just a regular can spray painted yellow.

    Amazing that so many people still buy into their whole phoney punk diy gimmick

    Injury is most common in doggy/man on top positions and followed by a popping sound apparently.

    Edit: should probably warn that link has the x-ray images on it.

    Croats throwing shade on prosecco:

    As for the product, prošek is similar to vin santo and prosecco is similar to white wine with fizzy water.

    Perhaps it goes without saying, but I strongly recommend you do not do an image search for "penis fracture".

    I'm no fire fight expert, but are they trying to put out the burning ocean by spraying a little water on it?
