$1 Million Bounty On Putin: Reddit says a Russian entrepreneur, named Alex Konanykhin, has placed a $1 million bounty on Vladamir Putin's head for invading the Ukraine.
He posted: "I promise to pay $1,000,000 to the officer(s) who, complying with their constitutional duty, arrests Putin as a war criminal under Russian and international laws. Putin is not the Russian president as he came to power as the result of a special operation of blowing up an apartment building in Russia, then violated the Constitution by eliminating free elections and murdering his opponents. As an ethnic Russian and a Russia citizen, I see it as my moral duty to facilitate the denazification of Russia. I will continue my assistance to Ukraine in its heroic efforts to withstand the onslaught of Putin's Orda.''

“Are you lonely, Mr. Putin? Is that why you sit at your long, long marble table alone in the night and through the day/and talk to ghosts[?] Because you really have no friends — everyone is afraid of you; afraid to even offer up good advice, because great emperors don’t listen to anyone but ghosts. Your ghosts will haunt you night and day. They will shake their heads and say, ‘This time, Vladimir, you went to[o] far.' I hope you never sleep again. I hope you sit at that long, ugly, lonely table for the rest of your life. I hope your ghosts surround you until you are old and grey and miserable. I hope the history books in your country cease to ever write another word about you — I hope you turn to dust. I hope you become invisible. I hope you become ‘the forgotten one.' The ghosts are coming Mr. Putin. They’re coming for you. Perhaps, they’re already here.”

She says a friend should have to call not a girlfriend. Then, she asked me if I've been doing things that I shouldn't be. I think she was inferring that I may be cheating. Who do you side with on this? Should a partner be allowed to stop by unexpectedly without calling?
