and totally unrelated, if you want to take an unfortunate look at what REAL crazy actually looks like, dig some of this...every day it's something different with this guy....he comes after me, tim pierce, guthrie, rhett shull etc..... crazy is all around us everywhere...i'm so used to it i barely notice it anymore, but this guy has a particularly big mouth and he is extra annoying.

oy...just be careful putting yourself out there people..if you can't handle weirdos you should seriously consider another line of work.

Stay strong friends…a lot of this shit is actually not our fault.
