PS Yes I did use google and yahoo, but I am currently on my school computer, which blocks the pages for "Adult content" or "weapontry". Grrr, stupid school cpus!

Hope that helps.

I would love to have a tank to be able to run over all the idiots that can not drive here.

I would love to build a replica of a King Tiger, but a static one. I wish I had the money, but it must be great to build your own one and be able to drive it around.

Yes, those Sun of a birches can not drive for shit. I will drive over all those TAXIS that cause all the shit. Pretoria ( oh sorry the stupid assholes of a government calls it now POLEKWANE ) is way nicer place than Joburg, only thing is it is very hot.

Have you been to South Africa Gnomey?
