What’s the activity that you do on a daily basis (or maybe less frequently) to earn money (or other assets) to sustain yourself (or barely keep up)? What’s that vocation based upon education (or lack of it) and skills (more-or-less-know-how)? What do you do to supply service to others (or to harm them)? Whatever you do is good. Even if you don’t like it. There should be nobility in every profession....

Time to get scared, as the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead becomes blurred. Time for Halloween.

APPLE ONE IS A WASTE OF TIME NACA - WASTE OF TIME UPS - DISGUSTING WASTE OF TIME Essentially everything in the world can be either purchased, or earned, given as a gift, scrounged, taken by force, scammed or just found on the road. Everything but Time. No one could ever buy a mere second even for the last breath. Emperors and kings were willing to shower everyone who could prolong their days, with treasures.
