my life

i’m a warriors fan and enjoying their recent success after watching years of deplorable success with players like alton lister and kevin pritchard. i have my second electric car. i recently put a deposit in for the new tesla model 3 car but was disappointed at the interior and potential for problems since it’s the first model year of that car. i grew up near my parents and my kids grew up near their great-grandparents which is fantastic because i grew up far from extended family.

giants among men

ambalamps guy was drunk

does everybody remember the two guys in the ac transit fight? here it is again in case you want to watch it again (or watch it 20x like i just did).
