Billy Mays Dead...
« on: Jun 28, 2009, 11:02:22 AM »

My goal in life is to be as a good a person as my dog already thinks I am.

You can go through life being scared of the possible, or you can have a little fun and tease the inevitable.

Give a man venison, he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to hunt Blacktail, he'll be frustrated for life!
