A few years ago, a young boy sold a kidney to get an iPad 2. He died last year. What do you think about it?

Speaking

talk about salary and politics is ok because no one cares. and for me I really hate someone ask me do you have bf or get married.
A lot of my uncles and grandmothers usually ask me that so I go back home last month to avoid that. Just only visit with my parents.
A lot of old people think it is like a rule, They think I should do that and some of my classmates in high school they asked on the WeChat who got married. It is like gossip.
But I removed them / I deleted some of them because I never contact with them.
I think classmates never wish you get better than them. But only one or two keep In touch but they never care who you are are.
But some young girls they can talk very conformable with someone they just met but you don’t know who they are.
