    Actually If your pee is white Means Your drinking ALOTS of water if it's yellow It's mean your dehydrated Infact If your pee looks like or feel more yellow then usual then Your really dehydrated At least drink 8 Glass of water If your also burfing and Farting alot then It's a good sign Of being Hydrated The louder And bigger the fart means the Healthier Only if it's by drinking water Then yea your healthy if you Don't find any of this true try it yourself. (Also the fart and burfing one will Help you Out if your having stomach Pain Because Farting is actually Healthy pretty sure ALOTS of people know this)

    The Real reason why we are tired because your body is not designed to wake up 7:00 everyday and work for 8 hours. Youre designed to wake up when you are not tired. youre designed to live in wild LIKE every other living creature in the world.

    Repent! The Day of the LORD is near! In the beginning the LORD God, Creator of the heavens and the earth, breathed into us life and blessed us with His laws, that we may be a blessing on the earth! But we have disobeyed the LORD and brought sin into the world! Sin is the reason why there is so much evil in the world, and why the earth is falling apart! All people have sinned against the LORD, we all deserve to suffer eternal damnation for bringing so much evil into the world! But the LORD God loved us so much that He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins! He suffered shame, agony, and died on the cross, and was resurrected three days later! The LORD God sacrificed His only Son, spilling His blood, so that we may be forgiven of our evil deeds against Him! Therefore repent, believe and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and bare good fruit of the Holy Spirit! Repent of fornication, idolatry, adultery, pornography, masturbation, homosexuality, transgenderism, stealing, envy, murder, hatred, extortion, drunkenness, reviling, witchcraft, sedition, sorcery, lying, wrath, pride, drug abuse, and unbelief! Jesus Christ is the mercy and salvation of God Almighty! Those who refuse to repent shall face the wrath of God! They shall be cast into the lake of fire for all eternity! Unquenchable, unbearable pain and suffering, without end and without mercy! Repent, believe and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, and be saved! Only the blood of Jesus Christ can bring forgiveness of sins, and He is the only way to salvation!

      Matthew 24:7-8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
      Luke 21:25-26 And there shall be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the seas and the waves roaring. Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
      Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgement.
      Matthew 24:32-33 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; when his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: so likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
      Luke 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.
