Smile She can have any man

Oh well ... there is no reason for the Princess to be engaged to a man who uses the "little head" to control their lives ... She can have any man she wants!

Then of course Jonas can sit and repent himself so much he wants to ....

She is worthy of someone who thinks with his head at the top of the body ... She like all other women ...

There is no law in Sweden that says that you can not drive and talk in the mobile phone while driving is in progress. Sweden is one of the few countries that has not banned it.

It depends on where you are in America. In some states you can text or talk and drive, it some places you can only talk, and in some you can do neither.

I would like it to be a national law, banning talking/texting while driving. I can't count the number of times I've nearly been involved in an accident because some numbskull in front of me just absolutely has to say "OMG NO WAI" to some other numbskull they're talking to.

If the situation is so dire that you must talk on the phone while in your car, pull over to the side of the road or put your emergency flashers on and try to get out of the lane of traffic so that people around you know to slow down and proceed with caution around your vehicle. It's just common sense to me.

America is a country. North America is the continent that America is a part of. The same as South America is the continent Columbia is a part of.

I know this is out of topic, but your country is United States of America, States of North America, mine of course, as you said, is South America, it means that America includes, North, South and Central America

America is another name for the United States of America. It's merely a shortened form of the country's official name. The same as people call it the United States or the US or the USA. It's all the same thing. That's why people from this country are called Americans, not United States of Americans.

The Americas are North, Central and South America. However "America" by itself refers to the country, not a continent.
