3 things not to do when you get a virus (in your computer) (from graegram.com) 1. Panic 2. Buy antivirus software 3. Be cheap

I cannot finish this post without sharing with you “Three things you should never do with your gun” (from thetruthaboutguns.com) 1. Use it 2. Talk about it 3. Buy it a friend
