    If you've been scammed out of money it's your own damn fault

    Dude, pay your taxes. The only thing the government is actually good at doing is collecting taxes and they can make your life miserable. Like coke bottle up your rear with no vasoline kinda miserable.

    Made Last Car Payment Today!

    Yup, storing payments is also a nice nest egg in case of an expensive repair.

    Stratocaster players

    U2 IE Tour

    Why do people shake after getting beat up?

    THIS. I practice Goju-Ryu karate and the goal is to have your technique down to muscle memory, and your body and emotions in check while in this fight or flight mode. Its VERY difficult. I was shaking like a leaf after my last karate grading.

    Hey Y'all

    Nice to have you here. Every winter I threaten to leave this frozen hellhole for good LOL. I could definitely find work down there too and with NAFTA, INS is a breeze. (speaking in very relative terms)
