    Worst State to Hitch Through?

    My friend always hits the truck stops and asks semi truckers for rides. Note he usually travels alone with about zero gear (clothes on his back, a hobo tool, sharpie, and bic lighter). But he says he always flys through Iowa like lightning. He also recommends flying a sign with a basic...

    What classifies someone as a "slut"?

    (excuse my double post but my first was pretty far off topic) And I would consider certain nymphos sluts since well theres a bunch of them that will fuck ANYTHING.
