Kids these days. All they want to do is overthrow big multi-billion dollar companies. What is the world coming to?In my day we did innocent things like, smoking pot, breaking the speed limit and reading the stolen Playboy from the corner market, and making out with our girlfriends. 15 year olds just have no respect anymore.http://www3.telus.net/dport1/Radar_small.gifRC3 - Just gotta' have it!http://www3.telus.net/dport1/Radar_small.gifhttp://www3.telus.net/dport1/dansig.jpg
