    ^^That shit was good Wu-Disciple...I of course tried to lick my elbow and was unsuccessful...there's gotta be someone who can do it...Gene Simmons perhaps?

    And word, us Alaskans are hardcore! Not only does it get colder than 60 below zero but its dark all winter long too! We are also lucky enough to have the highest suicide rate per capita...too many cats sick of walking to work everday!!??
