REB #18: "Al Qaeda gives you their word."

– Bekay Harrach, quoted in a CNN.com article Let me ask you something: when “Al Qaeda gives you their word,” which (ironically) happens to be grammatically incorrect, do you believe it? No sir/mam, you do not fucking believe it! Because it’s Al Qaeda. Look at everything it stands for and everything it’s done. No matter what […]

Bollywood’s FIRST Gay Love Story

She had mentioned her plans before, and then we were talking about […]
