    The second shot of Prince confirms I’m literally built just like that dude. He’s 5 lbs heavier than I am however. Same height as well.

    Traveler Hello Hugh, bloggers notcie after they have been blogging for a while, that sometimes relationships on WP can be like the real world. It does take a while to see when a blogger is being manipulated by another blogger. Has happened to me a few times. I once had a very strange man send me an email that was a mile long, he was trying to change my religious beliefs.He kept emailing me trying to argue the issue, when I had not even posted a religious post. The man started by commenting innocently on my site, then later discovered his true intention was literally this crazy cult like so called movement that he was trying to get me to join. This man was getting traffic from my site via comments to his crazy cult like blog. I didn’t realize it, because didn’t visit his blog early enough. This happened during my first month of blogging, asked an expert blogger, they told me to be careful of such other bloggers. Had no clue it was the bloggers intention to try to get my readers to read his crazy cult like literature. Cult like = he believed some crazy thing like dying and joining aliens in space or going to outer space, which to me is just nonsense.
