I noticed the spelling mistake an all, when I first joined, but I never got round to working out where I should point it out. Ignore the last two tossers, let's get a pressure group together.

Lightening the mood my friend...actually any accent sounds cool to me - Minnesotans are the funniest......the west coast is the absolute most boring one as a generalization (including me)
