    Hm. Ya right Phantom.

    Phantom, did 2. A polite assassin is a nice rl person. Told you that maybe getting hired out to kill people isn't a good idea. And... just cause your sister does it doesn't mean that it works. I know what I'm talking about. Food digests in about 3 days. Cats who eat deathberries can die in 20 min. See, digestive system. PROOF! take that! I really like aruging by the way ; )
