    Hehe, no-one has said "scratching my nads", "the McDonalds menu" or "what's on TV for the next week". It's all "the membranes of the inner ear" or "Serbian satirists of the early 20th century".

    now that i think about it, i don't know very much about a lot of things. seems to me the more i learn, the more i know i don't know. so, i guess i know a little to a fair amount about a lot of things, but certainly won't be publishing my journals anytime soon.

    Sweet! I tend to buy used ones because they depreciate so fast that you can pick up a nice ride for less than $20k. The all-roads are nice and you can get the 2.7T engine which is the same one in my S4. :D
