You opened it, Good luck. Tonight at midnight your true love will realize they love you. Something good will happen to you at 1:00 PM - 4:40 PM tomorrow, it could be anywhere. Tonight at midnight they will remember how much they loved you as well. You will get the shock of your life tomorrow, a good one. If you break the chain you will be cursed with relationship problems for the next 2 years. Karma. If there is someone you once loved (or still do) and can't get them out of your mind, repost this in another city within the next five minutes. It’s amazing how it works!
It is sad when people you know, become people you knew....
It is one of life's tragedies when you meet someone that you know is meant to be but due to unexpected circumstances and misunderstandings becomes someone you knew.
And when you can walk right past someone that at one time in your life was a big part of your life...
And how you used to be able to talk to them for hours about the little nothings in life...
And now you can barely look at them and they at you...
And all you have left is that aching feeling in your soul...
If you really miss someone a past love and can't seem to get them off your mind...then repost this titled as "I Truly Do Miss You."
Whomever you are missing will surprise you.
Don't break this, for tonight at midnight, your true love will realize they love you.
And...something great will happen to you tomorrow.
Karma: If there is someone you loved or still do and can't get them out of your mind, re-post this in another city.
Tonight they will remember how they love you as well.
You will get the shock of your life tomorrow

Idk...Pennsylvania has so much natural gas it seeps into the water table.....But this administration wants to shut fracking down. Makes no sense. It's the energy supply of the future and means jobs. I know VA is under the national unemployment rate, but you're one of the few.

And if they pass the 'War on Coal' and defund the military by 6 billion, you'll have big job loss also.

You know who the locals are that are bitchin? It's the same hippies who don't want wind mills because they are scared they will kill a bat that has never been seen! They are the same morons who don't want a bypass because they are scared it will destroy some ten-cent millionare's corn field!
But they sit at that Pub in town and drink that dark, nasty ass beer, and think they are something because they come from family's that have money!
It has been proven that no drilling has ever hurt any water system or table! Scientific proof that nothing is wrong with it!
But they think they can put a frickin lake in middle of town! What morons! They don't care about hurtin a damned cave though, do they! LOL
Bet there will be a lotta wine drank at the "Marcellus" meeting! After all, Histericalburg will have to turn it into a "Social!" For sure!
