  6. Too bad the outcome was the same the second time around. Third time a charm? :)

  7. He decides to walk away instead of revenge is an amazing twist.

  8. I admire this kind of determination, too-and I also wish he could push those bullies into the time machine and send them back to the ice age;) Clever 33 words!
