A cool proverb site

If you’re looking for some cool proverbs if you’re bored, check out Doing Fine .org. It has some proverbs + some explanations of what they mean.

If you’re interested in this product you can buy it at Wal-Mart, Amazon.com. It’s highly effective. Certain Dri contains aluminum chloride.

The false information suggests that antiperspirants contain harmful substances, which can be absorbed through the skin or can enter the body near the breasts through nicks in the skin caused by shaving. The e-mails also suggested that antiperspirants keep a person from “sweating out toxins,” resulting in the spread of cancer-causing toxins via the lymph nodes.
