  1. I found this article very interesting.

    You may have seen on NBC news concerning the implantable RFID microchip that some people are getting put in their hand to make purchases, but did you know this microchip matches perfectly with prophecy in the Bible?

    You may have heard of the legendary number “666” that people have been speculating for possibly thousands of years on what it actually means. This article shares something I haven’t seen before, and I don’t think there could be any better explanation for what it means to calculate 666. This is no hoax. Very fascinating stuff!

  19. I was called back to my old job which is amazing because by the time they finally got the unemployment straightened out, I was
    already behind on bills. I’m still not back on top
    even with the extra money. I really need my job back.

    I was wondering if you can answer a few questions for me.

    I’m concerned about the drug test because I’ve “self-medicated”
    while I’ve been home to take the edge off all the craziness.
    There are lots of people doing it these days. I just smoke
    weed, but it’s on the drug test.

    I delayed going back to my old work for a couple of weeks and quit smoking
    as soon as they called. My employer uses a mouth swab drug test.
    (Like this: https://usamdt.com/drug-testing/mouth-swab-drug-test/)

    Do you know if there is a drug testing center near me where I can get one?
    And, more importantly, can I just go in and order one myself?
    Do I have to choose the drugs that are on the test or is
    marijuana automatically included on all of them?

    I’m not a hardcore drug user or anything like that so don’t worry about that.
    I just really need my job back, but I’m concerned about the mouth swab drug test.

    You know how it is. Thanks for your help!

    good platform.
