To him, it will not happen, that he falls into a chocolate and nuts, but the woman that he would like to kiss, could have been hours before, and eaten. Demands is not worth it, because who remembers exactly what he has taken on the day? Especially in the evening, in the pub, after a Drink in the middle of the Flirt? Therefore, the young man no longer assumes the risk of a fatal kiss today.

Earlier the thought tormented him to the Kiss immediately, whether his body will show possibly an allergic reaction. He doesn’t want any more. There are people who have died, that you were kissed by your Partner, writes the 22-Year-old from Farnham, a small town West of London, in a British Internet portal. Kissing can kill me. This risk is not worth it. That sounds resigned. This is actually ridiculous. But I just don’t have the nerve.

Lethal peanut-accidents, there are always
