Without waiting for an answer, he handed me a prescription for some new specs. Of course that “going blind” bit from jacking off is as old as “hairy palms.” Even ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi told the Al Jazeera Network that masturbation causes, “hands to become pregnant in the afterlife.” Suprise, suprise: he is misinformed.
