Note: even though it originally came from an acronym, Tor is not spelled "TOR". Only the first letter is capitalized. In fact, we can usually spot people who haven't read any of our website (and have instead learned everything they know about Tor from news articles) by the fact that they spell it wrong.

Maria! Honey! I so dearly missed you. Luckily I have a pic of your lovely feet and those.....ummmmmmmmm....delicious toes.

Ain't it amazing that there's nothing that can separate the love we have for each other. And to think it's all being witnessed by our fellow bitcoiners.

It is worth to link the unmolested child post in the main comment. Anyway without the original FAQ this would not happen.

Not quite ready yet, I need to finish other half of it and refine some parts of it to be really funny. I just need some free time and dose of inspiration.

Was looking up discussions on fungibility but I think this dictionary may be useful to others so ancient bump
Plus I like to see how definitions change over time and spell errors can remain the same hehe
