Forty-eight hours after injection of crystalline particles with normal and reduced size of our drug, the effect of liver toxicity was compared by determination of liver transferase enzymes such as alkaline phosphatase, aspartate aminotransferase, and alanine aminotransferase ALT. These enzymes were examined by routine colorimetric methods using commercial kits and pathologic investigations.
Statistical analysis and pathological figures indicated that ALT delivery and toxicity in reduced size acetaminophen was significantly reduced when compared with normal size acetaminophen. Pathology figures exhibited reduced necrosis effects, especially the confluent necrosis, in the central part of the lobule in the reduced size acetaminophen samples when compared with the normal samples. Keywords: acetaminophen, size reduction, pathological and enzymatic investigations, toxicity.
The relationship between cellular adhesion and surface roughness in polystyrene modified by microwave plasma radiation. Pure polystyrene is hydrophobic and cannot provide a suitable environment for cell cultures. The conventional method for surface modification of polystyrene is treatment with plasma. In this study, conventional polystyrene was exposed to microwave plasma treatment with oxygen and argon gases for 30, 60, and seconds. Methods and results: Attenuated total reflection Fourier transform infrared spectra investigations of irradiated samples indicated clearly the presence of functional groups.
Atomic force microscopic images of samples irradiated with inert and active gases indicated nanometric surface topography. Samples irradiated with oxygen plasma showed more roughness 31 nm compared with those irradiated with inert plasma 16 nm at seconds. Surface roughness increased with increasing duration of exposure, which could be due to reduction of the contact angle of samples irradiated with oxygen plasma. Contact angle analysis showed reduction in samples irradiated with inert plasma.
Samples irradiated with oxygen plasma showed a lower contact angle compared with those irradiated by argon plasma. Conclusion: Cellular investigations with unrestricted somatic stem cells showed better adhesion, cell growth, and proliferation for samples radiated by oxygen plasma with increasing duration of exposure than those of normal samples. Keywords: surface topography, polystyrene, plasma treatment, argon, oxygen.
Manufacturing of biodegradable polyurethane scaffolds based on polycaprolactone using a phase separation method: physical properties and in vitro assay. Methods: In this study, polyurethane samples were synthesized from polycaprolactone, hexamethylene diisocyanate, and a copolymer of 1,4-butanediol as a chain extender. Polyurethane scaffolds were fabricated by a combination of liquid—liquid phase separation and salt leaching techniques.
It was observed that, by increasing the NCO:OH ratio, the average pore size, compressive strength, and compressive modulus increased. L fibroblast and chondrocytes were cultured on the scaffolds, and all samples exhibited suitable cell attachment and growth, with a high level of biocompatibility. Conclusion: These biodegradable polyurethane scaffolds demonstrate potential for soft tissue engineering applications. Keywords: polyurethane, tissue engineering, biodegradable, fibroblast cells.

Effect of the mechanical activation on size reduction of crystalline acetaminophen drug particles. In this study, we investigated the size reduction influence of the acetaminophen C8H9O2N particles by mechanical activation using a dry ball mill. The results of the IR and XRD images showed no change in the drug structure after the mechanical activation of all samples. With the peak height at full width at half maximum from XRD and the Scherrer equation, the size of the activated crystallite samples illustrated that the AFM images were in sound agreement with the Scherrer equation.
According to the peaks of the AFM images, the average size of the particles in 30 hours of activation was 24 nm with a normal particle distribution. The ICP analysis demonstrated the presence of tungsten carbide particle impurities after activation from the powder sample impacting with the ball and jar. The greatest reduction in size was after milling for 30 hours. Keywords: acetaminophen, mechanical activation, structure investigation, nanoparticles, ball mill. The relationship between cellular adhesion and surface roughness for polyurethane modified by microwave plasma radiation.
In this study, conventional polyurethane was exposed to microwave plasma treatment with oxygen and argon gases for 30 seconds and 60 seconds. Attenuated total reflection Fourier transform infrared spectra investigations of irradiated samples indicated the presence of functional groups.
Atomic force microscope images of samples irradiated with inert and active gases indicated the nanometric topography of the sample surfaces. Samples irradiated by oxygen plasma indicated high roughness compared with those irradiated by inert plasma for the different lengths of time. In addition, surface roughness increased with time, which can be due to a reduction of contact angle of samples irradiated by oxygen plasma.
Contact angle analysis indicated a reduction in samples irradiated with both types of plasma. However, samples irradiated with oxygen plasma indicated lower contact angle compared with those irradiated by argon plasma. Cellular investigations with unrestricted somatic stem cells showed better adhesion, cell growth, and proliferation among samples radiated by oxygen plasma for longer than for normal samples.
Keywords: surface topography, polyurethane, plasma treatment, cellular investigation. The anomalous magnetic moment of the top quark may be measured during the first run of the LHC at 7 TeV. For these measurements, it will be useful to have available tree amplitudes with t bar t and arbitrarily many photons and gluons, including both QED and color anomalous magnetic moments. In this paper, we present a method for computing these amplitudes using the Britto-Cachazo- Feng -Witten recursion formula. Because we deal with an effective theory with higher-dimension couplings, there are roadblocks to a direct computation with the Britto-Cachazo- Feng -Witten method.
We evade these by using an auxiliary scalar theory to compute a subset of the amplitudes. Top quark amplitudes with an anomalous magnetic moment. For these measurements, it will be useful to have available tree amplitudes with tt and arbitrarily many photons and gluons, including both QED and color anomalous magnetic moments.
Bounds from LEP on unparticle interactions with electroweak bosons. By examining single photon production at LEP, we bound the strength of these interactions. We apply our results, along with those of Delgado and Strassler [A. Delgado and M. Strassler, Phys. D 81, Caracciolo and S. Rychkov, Phys.

Full Text Available As one of the most fundamental natural elements, water has had a great share in the formation and architecture of architectural buildings. This research examines the effect of water and its presence in contemporary houses. Architecture is not merely a tridimensional compound of forms in space, but a manifestation of a sense or a thought in it. According to Feng Shui, the building where we live in can be the cause of balance and health for human being.
As a whole, anything around us has active and mobile energies; by designing a building in a way that positive energies can follow around easier, one can easier bring happiness for the dwellers. Feng Shui is based on the harmony among five elements of water, wind, soil, fire and metal. Because of its stream, water removes negative energies and revives and mobilizes positive ones thereby having a great impact on the current of energies. Conceptual, functional and aesthetic basics of water have been examined first via library studies and note taking from various papers and books.
Then, the three qualities would be analyzed in Iranian architecture, and the properties of past people will be examined to emphasize material, spiritual and psychological aspects of water. Then, I will assess the philosophical basics of Feng Shui in using water for interior spaces via a qualitative method and content analysis, usage of water based on Feng Shui in interior design and decoration of homes.
Considering these concepts, natural possibilities of water in interior architecture and its limitations in interior space design would be assessed and recognized.
Finally, some patterns would be presented to use water in interior spaces of contemporary apartments. Francis Group, pp. International Journal of Communications Systems.

Zirconia powders Frequency and pattern of Chinese herbal medicine prescriptions for urticaria in Taiwan during analysis of the national health insurance database. Large-scale pharmaco-epidemiological studies of Chinese herbal medicine CHM for treatment of urticaria are few, even though clinical trials showed some CHM are effective. The purpose of this study was to explore the frequencies and patterns of CHM prescriptions for urticaria by analysing the population-based CHM database in Taiwan.
We calculated the frequencies and patterns of CHM prescriptions used for treatment of urticaria, of which the diagnosis was defined as the single ICD-9 Code of Frequent itemset mining, as applied to data mining, was used to analyse co-prescription of CHM for patients with urticaria. There were 37, subjects who visited traditional Chinese Medicine clinics for urticaria in Taiwan during and received a total of 95, CHM prescriptions. Subjects between 18 and 35 years of age comprised the largest number of those treated There was an average of 5.
Bai-Xian-Pi Dictamnus dasycarpus Turcz was the most commonly prescribed single Chinese herb while Xiao- Feng San was the most commonly prescribed Chinese herbal formula. In view of the popularity of CHM such as Xiao- Feng San prescribed for the wind-heat pattern of urticaria in this study, a large-scale, randomized clinical trial is warranted to research their efficacy and safety.

Actually, I guessed right when she told me that something was really wrong. They had sex, as they often do. Well, protected until the condom broke. Which brings me around to my thoughts.
Why is being pro-choice so punk-rock anyway? Most I know think that way. It seems to contradict all of the other little punk rocker rules and regulations. Most punkish people I know, are obviously anti- racist, like me, care about the poor and needy, like me, and the environment and all like me, but are pro-choice. All of those other things, so punk rock as hell, have to do with giving everyone a chance.
Giving minorities and women equal rights. Helping the poor so they can survive like the rest of us, and have a better chance at life. Keeping the environ- ment clean so generations to come can have the earth and live, too. So, why then are they all for killing people before they ever are born? Taking away their biggest chance to do anything in life, taking away life itself.
So what if it can be hard or discomforting for the parents What do you know about what that decision is like? Are you implying abortion is easy? Planned Parenthood has a hour information line, in the U. If you want to know more about this issue, they are a good place to start. Jeff M. My name is Rev. Richard J. I am a minister of the Universal Life Church, which does mean that I am a fully ordained minister, but that I do not have a congregation, established church, and I live much like any other lay person in America.
I am writing to you to bring a recent event to your attention, and to pose a moral dilemma — what would you do in the following situation: It is Friday night, about 8pm. You are with friends at the normally crowded corner of Newbury St. Nearby, a protest with which you are neither particularly in agreeance nor disagreeance, starts. A large crowd gathers, police arrive, arrests are made. Tension and confu- sion are high. To your left, you see a man trying in vain to walk a bicycle away from the activity through the crowd.
There are police nearby, but they are not responding they seem focused on other activity. What do you do? A police officer came to my right side, took my arm and asked if I wanted to be arrested. I reiterated what I saw, what was going on, and that I was uninvolved in any other part of the activity. At no point did anyone address the fact that the man pushing, shouting and swearing was also a policeman.
It was some time later when I learned that he was an officer of the law. Despite numerous re- quests and attempts to talk with various officers at the scene and at the Area D Police Station, I was only able to find out his identity by directly asking him in person. Look forward to hearing from you soon. Sincerely, Rev. My band Dropout played with them in Birkenhead a few weeks ago and they sucked. Apart from turning up late, they strutted around with an obvious inflation to their own importance.
After their set, GBH demonstrated what true tossers they are, as the guitarist smashed up his guitar on the monitors in a fit of punkness, probably to make up for the lack of punk during their set. Neither was the huge brawl which erupted after this, but at least GBH had the sense to leave the drummer and his mate behind as they took I a pasting by the pissed off locals. The moral of this story, my friends, is never go near these sad old wankers.
Bookthe UK Subs instead. They played a few weeks before GBH and ruled. Grow old with dignity, you pricks. Magill psygnosis. The day we arrived in L. We my friends and I were really amazed that we will be able to see AF live again after their more or less unnecessary reunion.
But this is up to themselves.. So we went to L. ID required for entrance! We made some fun of what that guy was telling us but we shortly realized, that it was meant seri- ously. We showed ourTicketmastertix com- mercial tickets for a HC show oh well and there he was, a 10 foot bodyguard bouncer telling me rudely that wallet chains are not accepted!
No chains. Get lost! The only reason why we released our chains was, that we made that big mistake to buy tickets earlier. Anyway, our heads shaking we went back to our car and put our chains inside. And what we saw inside was a bunch of kids totally pierced and tattooed - just the coolest and toughest bunch of guys I ever saw. At second sight we saw two big monitors and about three pro- fessional cameras is the Whiskey involved with Paramount? Wow, how punk are they?! Fuck that! Strife was playing so we made ourselves comfort- able at the floor when another Security-Skin stepped in front of us commanding to stand up immediately reason: we were sitting on the white line.
We found out that this line is used as a passage where people walk. Wow, punk again! The later the evening the more we realized that this place sucks bad ass! The audience was just slamming around rudely hitting others faces and stuff like that, when an announcertold the audience show hosted by Larry King, huh?
Or not?! So why the fuck were wallet chains not allowed? But anyway, today I was going to see Ignite which l missed evei y time they were on European tour. America should keep the money for education and other important domestic stuff. After he said this, the audience was clapping their hands and our world in which we consid- ered Ignite to be was destroyed. Poor guys. We were like shouting at Ignite to fuck off and get lost. My grandma is a lot more HC than you guys are.
Fuck Ignite. Fuck patriotism. Fuck nationalism. Just be proud of a country that separates and discriminates the whites from the blacks. I could easily continue to talk about the US politics for hours but just notice that America is: a one of the most depoliticized nations in the industrial world, b one of the most deeply indoctrinated societies, and c one of the most conformist intelligentsias! It nearly is the same with Germany! So taking all this into consideration: Can you still be proud of yourfucking country?!
To end this letter up: Hey punks or whatever you call your- selves in LA, think about where you are going to and to whom you are giving your money away!
As a punk band who is on tour, there are surely other clubs non profit ones who are outside the snobbish Holly- wood! Always keep in mind that punk is not about getting totally pierced and tattooed! Follow the Dl Y ideals and build up more volunteer run clubs! Some helpful suggestions: 1. Bands - If you are sending some- thing to MRR for review, please! If your label is in charge of the record, have your band member that does the PR hassle the label to put in the price and an address. It only takes a quick phone call, note, or e-mail! I also think more people would be willing to check out your music if the price and address are right there; the readers have a central location to find their favorite tunes!
I believe everyone involved would benefit greatly, having the important info needed to order. In turn, mak- ing your music that much more accessible. There are many points raised within that column that, I think, are necessary to be discussed at length. I feel that this singular column and the ideas be- hind it, both good and bad which I will discuss shortly , are very important for activ- ists to think about. Some sort of discourse about these issues should be brought up by people from varying backgrounds and who are involved in many ways on different lev- els, but my declining faith in the scene is making me very willing to bet that an inter- view with Race T raitor will draw more letters in than this guest column.
Now, I would like to comment on several of the points raised in the column I may contend that it is not even a paramount cause of inactivity. Through ev- erything from television to indoctrination in- stitutions schools , we are taught, begin- ning at a very young and impressionable age, that radicalism is an evil.
We are taught through a very complicated web of misinfor- mation and skewed perspectives propa- ganda that the status quo must be main- tained, and that those who struggle to change it are un-American and, therefore, bad. James W. Textbooks credit the federal government for the achieve- ments that were actually gained by those involved in the Civil Rights movement on the streets.
He also points to a study that shows that high school civics teachers suggest to their students that the only way individuals could affect local and federal governments is through voting. Neverthe- less, the point that the majority of current political action and dialog is boring holds to be quite true, but I think that is only a partial cause of inactivity. Not only are they failing to unite the working class, but they are failing to unite the Marxist working class. Claiming that politics and protests are irrelevant and ineffective is incorrect, even empirically speaking.
Studies by politi- cal scientists show that even today with the massive fragmentation of the left that pro- tests, rallies, etc. They put the issues on the table to be discussed at length. Sometimes they are not discussed, sometimes they are. One example I could give is of the protest against the fashion school at Kent State University.
Through a letter written to the school paper the day before, the protest itself, and several guest columns to the paper afterwards, the activists helped set the agenda, the terms for the discourse to follow. People involved in this protest and in the organizations involved were complete strangers to the several individuals who had written in to the paper with their personal experiences and emotions relating to the is- sue.
One woman was a size 24 nude model, another, a plus-size fashion model, along with several "others. All these women were em- powered enough to take a personal stand on an issue that was brought to the table by less than a dozen people, and, in the end, an entire campus was forced to think, at least for a moment, about the issue.
This is only one small example out of thousands that people all over the globe could share that testify for the effectiveness of protest actions. Everyone involved in political movements is there for several reasons, and for many a key motivating factor may be feeling of duty. If someone is counter-protesting against Operation Rescue outside an abor- tion clinic, and providing for escorts for pa- tients, they are not only helping to affect long- range goals like ensuring that someday women will have access to a safe, legal abortion without having to apologize for it; they are also helping the patients realize there are people out there who are not there to demonize them for wanting to control their bodies, but are there for support and encouragement for women who are exercising choices funda- mental to women existing free of sexist con- trol.
Many of the criti- cisms are hard-hitting, solid observations; many are unfair and unfounded indictments. On the other hand, the ideas laid out for effective kinds of political action are great - totally solid across the board. Rather than throwing out the concept of the protest, how about thinking about and implementing ideas that make protests fun and effective, rather than dry and repetitious? Hopefully a dialogue about this can be opened in our local orga- nizations, in our social circles, and in the pages of this fanzine and others?
There are few organizations I consider effective, but one I suggest people check out is Anti-Racist Action. There are around 70 chapters in the US and Canada. I would have to say that is the best advice that I have ever heard in my entire life. Let me also take this time to thank Tim Yo for getting someone that is actually in the mili- tary to give his views for the Quality of Military Life column. I am an Aviation Ordnanceman.

Bicycles are clean, quiet, body-exercising transport. They are relatively inex- pensive. They are easily stored in a garage or even closet.
They are even fun. I frequently ride my bike, always with both eyes wide open and a helmet on my head. I use hand signals and consider my bike to be a vehicle just like a car or truck. Accordingly, I obey all stoplights, signs, lanes, and whatever else a car must. I used to live in Belgium and in that country there are bike paths on the sides of most roads. Even with these paths, many roads arenarrowerthantheonesintheUSA. I was never hit by a car or involved in any type of accident.
When on the paths I felt quite safe and I did not bother the cars. The roads there are narrower and so are the cars. People tend to drive compact cars, if they choose to drive one at all. There are many bikers in Belgium. There are bike clubs and it is gener- ally an accepted mode of transport.
You see old ladies doing their shopping on a bike, men and women riding for fun or fitness or both. Here in the United States of America, if you are going anywhere you will do it in your car. You want a book, get in the car. To PI the dentist, car. Pack of gum, car. I just moved here about a month ago and I was really shocked by the sheer amount of pavement in this country. Every airplane-hanger-sized shopping metropolis complex superstore has an equally absurdly sized parking lot. Roads are wide, to accommodate the unnecessarily ugly, large, gas chugging barge cars.
People sit on their fat asses for hours a day, driving from one place to the next in their dispersed sprawl of a city. It is where the Blues used to play hockey. I really felt good going in there and just looking at it, seeing some history. I used to live here. Now, there is some even more big huge new ugly place for the Blues to play and the Arena will most likely be leveled to make a parking lot. So it seems to me that here in America people depend too much on their cars to take them places and they have built their towns around this dependence: everything is 35 miles apart.
They think all this land was made for some polluting, noisy, ugly, expensive, shit machines to take them to their boring jobs and the kids to soccer and all that crap. Perhaps and this is not in jest you live in San Francisco, in which case you could indeed walk places.

Most of the USA, however, is so sprawl- ing that this is impossible. That just plain sucks. One last thing: there are many compa nies and people who make and ride bikes who just do it because they think bikes are good things. Gary Fisher is one of those people. He started making bikes out of spare pieces and he and his friends would ride 'em down a mountain. Now he has a company and it makes some very fine bikes. Selling good stuff for cash is all right. I will spend my money on it if it is really worth it.
Cheers from Min- neapolis. I write after reading your bicycling column in MRR 1 Where even to begin. I can have no idea what inspires you- is this your issue of the week? Missing that spotlight lately? A demon- stration of supposed individuality, as a signal to potential mates? Or have you simply grown tired of telling us about them? Some of us tire as well. So you never learned how to argue effectively, fine- thing is, you insist on trying regardless. The point is simple- you need a more complex analysis. You offer us your opinions AZ. A clue for you, Mykel- anecdotal evidence does not an argument make.
Rather, it suggests a lack of any foundation. Especially when taken to exotic and spectacular levels- seems to be a specialty of yours. In any case. Or did you just pull it straight out of your ass? What sort of cave do you view the world from? A Buick, perhaps? Are you really so jaded? The truth comes out for a sentence! Working as a bike mechanic for two years, I observed the exact opposite trend.
What did you say your experience was here? They actually cause more. About one year ago, I crashed myself into a hour coma, complete with a months-long head trauma recovery. Sucked, but if I had not been wearing a bike helmet, I would be dead. So I tend to disagree with you here. The crash was brought on by that last 6-pack of Elephant, I think. You should stick to what you know. Bike ban? Oooh, controversy. How fucking brave- Mountain Dew with that? I submit that you should stop writing about public policy. I encourage you to give up and do something else.
Write about Mongolia, or New York. Anti-bike pieces such as yours probably end up helping our cause, because the hysteria is laid out so clearly. I think you did. Get on a bike, Mykel! You know you want to. Fact is, a whole bunch of us ride every- where we go just for the fuck of it. You can get in on that, too You have a good day. MRR, I would like to address one particular statement made by Mr. Rebel in his letter to MRR.
Now Mr. Johny Rebel does indeed have a trade- mark for the name Padded Cell. There- fore, may I simply say that Mr. MRR readers are welcome to peruse the exchange of letters between Mr. Rebel and myself for their own amusement. I will also include a transcript copy of their officially registered trademark from the U. Government Patent and Trademark Office.
Simply send your request to the address listed above. Stamps, or even a buck or two to cover the cost of postage, although not required, would be greatly appreciated. First, I check all the short letters. I skip it. When you start reading one, you usually have to read with the assumption that the subject will not be gotten to until somewhere in the second paragraph.
That was the stupidest fucking letter I read in that column; a childish hassle over the use of one name for two different organizations that went on to encom- pass a broad view of the marketing of punk in America. This may be dismissed as coincidence. Give it up, Padded Cell people!!!! Next time, strip your points down to their four- sentence essence, or go one step further and realize that nobody cares about your mind- less feud!
Love, Andy Wrench! Any- one who wants to write me or book us Detroit- area! Too poor to tour! The tentative result is I have sent a COA to the postal authorities reverting his address with my name, the title of the publi- cation to my proper address for receiving mail. Tentatively I hypothesize unsuspecting people will send the mail to his address. Even though my publication is non- profit status, and proven so, as you know, it is my responsibility to make sure every order is rendered and the zine is sent to whomever orders it.
Tentatively, I envision some com- plaints from anybody anywhere who claims they ordered an issue and sent it to the wrong address. In other words, my ass has been hung out on the line. It is only fair for me to know who typeset the wrong address in case, just in case the postal authorities try to hang my ass, I want to point my finger at the individual who is responsible just in case anything fucks up.
Finally, anybody who sends an order to the proper address is unconditionally guar- anteed a copy. Is that fair?? Please explain to me how this works? Why would we as punks not want to be political? To be political means to have an opinion, to be aware of the things happing around you. If this is the case please put those Crass albums down slowly and back away. The last thing we need right now is igno- rance. Use phone for ad reservations. An LP of Heavenly-esque girl pop. Male and female vocals and every song less than two minutes.
All checks are payable to Lance Hahn. Honey Bear. Send a S. BOX Perfect for patches or silk-screening. As far as live albums go, this is a great one. The recording quality is better than some studio albums, and the banter is short and fun. Good, raw recording, tight playing, and good punk rock tunes. Another strong RC release! This does a great job in capturing the fun and furious Punk Rock that is an RC gig.
You get songs from pretty much all their releases, all played at breakneck speed. Well worth getting while we wait for another chance to actually be at one of their gigs. Good stuff indeed! Cool liner notes and tracks that span all the bands releases including a big slap of covers SLF, Cheers theme, F. Argentina 31 -Buenos Aires. Casualties, Abstain, D. Los Crudos - Caneiones Para Diskonto - Destroy! LP S9. Minimum order is S10! Foreign orders add S3. Please list alternates. Labels get in touch. Please send a stamp for catalog.
Please mention this add with your order. Hewitt, N. In the vein of Captain 9's or maybe Sewer Trout. Ltd press of , and they're going fast. Features hit song "Girlfriend's mom. A good overview of what's going on in the RI punk scene. It has a certain early 80's skate thrash sound to it. It's a short one. That's tat SHE said. I'm laying on my back. She's naked, sitting straight up, strad- dling my loins.
Staring up, I see her breasts hang cone- like as she leans forward. Lower- ing my gaze, I can see the slit V on the back of my caput minoris peak out from beneath her pubes. She shakes her head. It's a lap dance turned ninety degrees. Her engorged clitoris presses against my own engorgement. A little side to side. She laughs, plays with it, smearing the sticky whiteness on my belly. She laughs again. Lifting her leg from my left side she dismounts and heads for the bathroom.
She's soon back with a too-cold washcloth to clean me up. We're in a motel in South Beloit, Illinois. I'm in town for my 25th college reunion. She's in town to meet me in person. Up till now, we've only known each other through the internet. Maybe those police warnings were right.
After the nookie, she comes with me to join the old farts in the class of ' She drives me to the campus in her car. Later, a man on crutches limps up to us. The toes of his left foot peek through the blue walking sock. He's John Gwin Jr. You go skiing? But otherwise, he's pretty good. Then he notices my companion. Then, I turn to her and place my lips against hers, sticking my tongue down her throat, reaching between her legs, stroking. That shuts him up. After he leaves, I explain our history to my new crush.
I don't know how many times he was on the verge of throwing me out. Someone burned down the Recorder's Office. They accused me, but I didn't do it. Later, someone put plaster in all the keycard slots so people couldn't get into their dormitories.
The dean accused me of that one too. Actually, I did it. Power to the people, and all that. You know? I can't figure it out. Of course.
