We’re a little late in announcing it, but the winner of last week’s contest and soon-to-be recipient of a pair of Smith & Wesson M&P earmuffs is Paul53. A polite golf clap by everyone would be appropriate at this point.

  1. Two rebels caught going cross country after fleeing the local constable in opposition to the new limits on gears. They were later sentenced to life in jail for having bikes with 15 gears rather then the legal 4.

    I’m not digging the new site layout. I’m probably just used to the old version, but this one is really annoying to navigate through. Just my two cents, thank you.
