    You guys never cease to amaze me with the kind of stuff you talk about when I’m not around. For one, I don’t know how to feel about Steev considering me a good looking dude but not enough to buy me. Second, Jrow, my man, you are a terrible American. You have to vote man, at LEAST you should register and vote in a presidential election. Also, I found the title of the podcast hilarious retroactively after I got to the discussion on the Ipad.
