    Consider, friend, as you pass by,
    As you are now, so once was I.
    As I am now, you too shall be.
    Prepare, therefore, to follow me.

    no, I looked through an assortment of your journal posts before inviting you. I know I do not like being invited to groups for just numbers sake, so I look through each person's profile before I invite them.

    Some fool who was texting too quickly and realized that it appeared interesting, leading to its constant usage via web users.
